I would say that was a successful first day at the track with the new setup.
You did some work, but earned the reward with it getting better as you went.

Keep it up. You will get the 8 second time slip.

The Chute may be coming next. Its has touched 150 mph on a couple of passes. Best ET was 9.005. But in better air with a little tail wind. It uses one XS 16 volt battery. Previously it had 2 Optima's. The single 16 volt works much better. We'll be out again Memorial weekend. Bigger jets, looser front shocks.

Doug what RPM do you shift at/cross the stripe?

I'd imagine you'll be well into 8.90s come fall weather so it's just a matter of time.

Usually try 6900-7000. The shift light was acting up so there were some over or under. At 149 right about 7300. It's got a 7400 chip. and didn't sound like it tagged it.

I'll say from personal experience lately that I found down leg boosters to make way more power if the main body's aren't on the big side to make up for the "choke" and in a single application a customer went from 10.77 to 10.40 with no other changes in Vegas......

Track prep is generally good there. Track is a bit bumpy, but not bad.
Frankly, it isn’t 131, but the new concrete walls and fresh staging lane pavement was definitely an upgrade
Where exactly do you live, Dave?

Only part of the track that is spooky is the seam in the right lane in the shut down area. I avoid it. Track prep was no issue. Scott didn't bring the Red Eye. We used his truck due to his fuel allowance. I put him to work.
