Sucky destination, Boyd, but I hope it all worked out great. I had a GREAT day at the ball park with my co workers followed by a nice happy hour afterwards. Just got home a little after 8pm... bp

If it doesn't rain (calling for a 60% chance), we'll be headed to the track for a T&T. Jeff is going to need some taller gears, now that he is running my 210. No more double overdrive. He's got 4:30's in it now. He probably won't get a full 1/4 pull with that gear, but he should get an 1/8 mile time to test out the nitrous / automatic combo.

Made the trip to the track even though it looked like rain (and was raining here when we left). but, the rain held off long enough to get a couple passes. in.

Here's our pit spot. We left the souvenir trailer & hospitality tent at home. :D :D :D :D

Jeff made 2 passes. Small shot is the first pass. Second pass he made a slight adjustment with the nitrous. Knocked off a little. Notice the MPH :?:
After the second pass he realized he was clicking it off at the 1,000 ft. mark. :idea: The reason we went for the T&T was to see if this gear could make it to the end of a 1/4 mile. It was fine for the 6spd. but we weren't sure about the 1:1 3rd gear of the Rossler. Went through the traps around 6,400 RPM, so he's got a little room left with the 4:30 gear, one less thing to work on before the WS.
His 60' times weren't so good, & he's had better 1/8 mile times, I 'hink with a few tweaks he'll be in the 12's.

BTW the 108.73 MPH & 13.19 ET are both new personal bests for Jeff. :arrow:
