First track outing of 2017

Took the bird to an 1/8th mile track about 160 miles away for some test hits.
First run, it didn't hook good. It actually didn't feel like a regular spin, more like the car was vibrating for the first 15-20 feet. I wonder if the tire pressure needs to come up now that the lower rear control arms are pretty much level.
Anywho, went 6.48@110 with a lousy 1.59 60'. Here is the vid:

Second run, launched but could not go into second gear. Found out the e-clip holding the shift cable on either broke or popped off. Didn't have an e-clip so that ended my day. After the 1-2 shift didn't happen, I just coasted the rest of the way to a 8.02@61mph, lol.
TC#1- 2.5T- 10.14@134....9.76@138 with a 50shot
