Here is a 11.14 run from my last trip out to Famoso. 60ft was only a 1.56x. It picked up 1 mph in the 1/8 but was a dog on the back half. Turns out an intake rocker backed off during that pass which is why it only went 121.xx in the 1/4. Should have been a 123.xx pass which would have been a personal best. Last pass of the day. Oh well.

A little wheels up action there--NICE! Nice run too. :tup:

The video played OK for me. Previously I found that Youtube seems to be a little more "friendly" for hosting (for uploading and later playing) compared to Photobucket.

Thanks guys. I've had some good people help me out. With some seat time I think 11.0x and maybe 10.9x is realistic. With a 3.5 year old and a 5 month old I don't see the car having serious priority any time soon.

I feel yeah, I have a 7month old---car hasn't been on the top of the list
Nothing wrong with that guys, its part of life and how things change.

I started with my GT before I had any kids and now the oldest of 3 is soon to be 31 and the youngest 21. :eek: It often sat unattended while they were young. I am glad that I enjoyed my kids growing up (and miss that now) but I am also glad that I never sold the car as it has given me much joy over the past few years.

Made it out to Irwindale last Thursday to make some 1/8 mile passes. First three passes I spun through first to 7.5-7.6 at 96 mph. Last pass I pulled my head out of my rear and got a decent 60 ft of 1.537 and ran a 7.05x at 97.30. New best at Irwindale!
