    Default Got into the 9's last Friday.

    Went to MIR for a track rental. Air was great and prep was too. As pumped as I was to see a single digit slip, I was disappointed in my driving as the day went on. The 9's came on the 2nd and 3 pass of the day. Car is faster than a 9.9. I had my pass seat out and skinnies on the front this time and it trapped 141 on one pass. It went 9.92 @ 141 on a 1.56 and 9.94 @ 140 on a 1.53. I have a full carbon clutch that is next to impossible to slip. On that track I should low 1.5 every pass and dip into the 1.4's. I hate to make excuses but before Friday I made 3 passes this year back in March.






    12:40 and 22:10. Check out Eric Lancaster's ZR1. He went 8.9 on a 150 shot. Still a 6-speed.

    Sweet! I knew your car was quick. Plus you didn't it on low profile tires and it looks like full size fronts.

    On both 9 sec slips I had GTO spares on. Someone asked to borrow my spacers for the skinnies so I wanted to go after 9's on full fronts.

    At least I put more miles on this car than I did either of my bikes this year. 100 miles between both bikes. lol

    ^ I am in the same boat. Bought a house and gotmarried this year and poof my time for wrenching and driving went bye bye. I am making time next season because I need to enjoy the Cobra and also get motivated on my current project a little more.
