    Sad part is I was ahead of my opponent enough to lift off the throttle at the end thinking I didnít want to break out!

    What do you attribute to the big pickup in ET?

    I believe it's all in the sixty foot time.

    Just "pushing buttons".

    I think I may have misunderstood you. With your questions, I thought you were inquiring on the differences for that particular track day. But now I see you're inquiring over previous track outings. But in essence, the resultant answer is essentially the same with some contributing factors.

    The sixty foot times are the most important improvement to the ET. The tune was the biggest factor with the improvements but there were some contributing factors such as weight reduction and density altitude. The car is lighter than before and the DA was certainly less than earlier in the year and somewhat less than last year.

    This previous late summer, we were averaging 12.771 @ 108.68 mph in 2000'+ DA at 4200 lbs. Corrected ET was calculated to have been 12.411 @ 111.44 mph.

    Now if you go back to the same time last year at the same event; we were heavier and the DA was 500'-1000' (slightly worse than this year). Last year we averaged 12.861 @ 105.85 with our sixty foot times a solid tenth slower. Corrected ET was 12.746 @ 106.76 mph.

    This outing was 100-150 lbs lighter at less than 500' DA, averaging 12.358 @ 110.54 mph.

    Most of what we have been working on contributes directly to the sixty foot time which is reflected quite significantly in the overall ET. We still have some tweaks to do but we are getting close to optimizing the sixty foot capability. A looser converter, lighter brakes and wheels along with some further tuning should give the car a chance for some 11 second ET's in good air.
