Congrats! Your in the 10's.

But whats up with your MPH? Are you lifting before the stripe?

Normally the spray would add MPH.

YES BILL, WITH SPRAY TOP SPEED IS HIGHER ...
WITHOUT NOS 11 SEC @ 129 MPH
100 HP NOS 10,89 SEC @ 136 MPH
150 HP NOS 10,67 SEC @ 134 MPH

I can not believe I be a man of 10 sec, seems like a dream...

How was the weather?
Hot?
Dry or Humid?
What elevation is the track?
Same place you raced before?

Wheel spin ?

Wik , i think no wheel spin , if you see the video , no smoke on the rear tires , hook up very good !!! i dont touch the caltracs preload at zero , tires pressure 11 psi , launch at 3500, full gas tank , shift at 7200, rpm at finish 6900-7000 at 135 mph
best 60 ft is 1.68 !! most people told me in the second pass 10.89 , when have shift from first to second , all front wheel stand of 3-4 inches !! remember the spray is only in 2-3-4 , not in first speed ....

let me know !!

That is great racing weather! A little to damp but cool, it was 100* here today. I would not want to be sitting in my car wearing a 2 layer fire suit, gloves and helmet here in sunny So Cal today.

Your DA (Density Altitude) was probably less than 1500', thats good for making power. I rarely see DA under 2500', every 1000 feet in DA you lose about 10th ET.

Congrats again :thumb:

Now what? :scratch:
Low 10's?
Or you have enough power for mid 9's . But can your wallet ($) deal with that?
