BTW I got my N/A LX record back yesterday (9.47@144MPH).  Had to use timing retard so only had a 1.50 60'.  Sorry no vid of that one.

 

Thanks for watching

Does it lay down if you leave just off of the foot brake? Seems like the T-brake is hitting them DR's awful hard.

 

I've been wanting to get used to the transbrake but realistically footbraking probably makes more sense.  I've got David Barton looking at my logs and he spec'd me a new converter I'm following his suggestion on transmission gearing (going back to 2.48 first gear).   It seems counterintuitive but I guess I need to hit the tires harder off the launch to keep the weight over the rear.   I may need a wheelie bar 0.o
