Ran the bird again last night at the local TnT.
Temp was 90 degrees with DA around 5900-6000.

First run, ran a new best with no spray. Went 10.14@134.

Second run, put the bottle in the car hoping for a new best. Went 9.86@136. Good but not good enough.

Third pass, dropped tires from 10.5psi to 10.2 and loosened the rear shocks one click. I also hit the nitrous as soon as I released the brake instead of waiting a split second after TB release.
New best: 9.76@138 with a 1.41 60'
The brand new Hoosier's definitely helped.

I noticed on the video the car seemed jump up more than forward so I may have the IC a little too far back. I will readjust the rear lower control arms for the next track assault and see if it will 60' a little better.

Took the bird out to TnT again last night.

Made three runs, all with the nitrous.

First run with 11psi in the tires, it had a little trouble hooking but still went 9.81@138 with a 1.43 60'.

Second run tried short shifting (7200 instead of the usual 7700-7900) to see what would happen. With 10.5psi in tires it went 9.95@135 with a 1.40 60'. New best 60' but the short shifting was a no no.

Third run dropped tires to 10.0 psi and shifted back up where I normally do. Ran 9.79@137 with a 1.39 60'. Finally got this puppy in the 1.3X 60'!

10psi in the tires is as low as I have run them. Seems too low but it hooks and doesn't have any top end dancing around so I dunno. Still would like to get the suspension to where it would hook as good with more tire pressure.
