We ran our car at Bradenton, wanted to get a feel for the 1/4 mile... Left hard and ran it to 1000' broke 140 MPH for the first time, lifted and coasted on thru... Recorded our first ever 8 second pass, an 8.96 at only 130 MPH !! :mrgreen:

Nice job! Clean and straight! But tell that guy backing you up to watch out... he was so close to the front bumper that he would have been sharing the cockpit with you if you had tapped the brakes! :) bp
