Smile Made it out to the track tonight

I made a few passes with this being the best. Nailed the tree, thought I jumped to soon. Do you all think if the weather was cooler and less humid it would help much? I would say it was every bit of 80 or so degrees and it was very humid. I also could drop another 100 pounds out of car seat, cooler, tailgate, bed cover and fuel. Skid plates are already off. I know these tires ain't helping matters either. Made it out to the track tonight-ohio-valley-8.93.jpg I was running Erics extreme race stud/egr delete tune, Erics moderate ficm flash, and a regulated fuel return from DFA. Plus all the other stuff in my sig. I spun all 4 once when I boosted to high at launch. If conditions and weight are right and I air down for traction what would you think is a possible time? I am hoping to see a 8.75.

I think With come cooler temps you should be able to run 8.70s no problems maybe drop the air pressure in your tires just a bit to get your 60 ft. Times down a tad

I assume this was at the Ohio Valley? The wife and I talked about riding out there last night, but I decided that it was too hot

Edit.... Just saw that the attachment name was "Ohio Valley" Good run
