Hahaha! You got it! The last run was the best run of a 13.6 @ 109 mph. It scares me that someone was actually watching.
All the other runs were not very good in the 14's. Still fun! But not great for time.
Here was my breakdown for those that have a long time to read.
No burnout, left lane.
Take off ok. The rear of the car got super loose on the 1-2 shift and shot me towards the centerline. I lifted just enough to get it back under control and kept going. This resulted in a [email protected]
The second run
No burnout. Left lane.
The tires spun really easily off the line, I peddled to get traction. At the 1-2 shift point the bumps in the track really upset the back of the car. It felt like wheel hop. I tried to keep going and didn't do that great but pulled around my uncle for the win! Not a great time of 14.6 @107 mph.
I noticed back at the pit that the rear tires had gravel embedded into the rubber. That why it spun so easily on the second run.
Third run, in the right lane. Racing my uncle again.
Quick tire spin.
Sat for 10 seconds after being staged. I was wondering if I needed to stage more or what the heck was going on. They finally pulled my uncle off the line because his overflow tank was leaking.
I sat staged, not knowing if I should restage. Finally the lights came down and I got antsy and totally red lighted lifting on and off the gas at the start.
At the top of the quarter I was at red line so I tried to shift to 4th and missed it. Crappy run but the right lane felt super solid with no bumps and lots of grip.
4th run. Right lane. Small burnout. Racing a mid 80's TA.
I actually seemed to take off well at only 2000 rpm. I only used second and third. Hit the rev limiter right at the finish line. Best of 13.6 at 109 mph.
So, quit fun. My 60' sucks showing I should be able to launch harder. And the reaction time sucked too as I was concentrating on trying to get the clutch near the engagement point with the revs up. Fun all around though. I really enjoyed myself.

Saw this guy at the show, but I was working security at the west entrance so I wasn't able to get around to talk the people. The car looked great!
