    Congrats to DadsC63/Keith for setting a new Personal Best Today!

    Keith was racing at Orlando Spinworld today and ended up running a best pass of:

    It was 67F and DA was definitely into the positive.

    This is with stock cams, we are reinstalling and tuning for the billets by the 2nd week of March.

    Thanks and congrats to Keith & Family and Ben!

    First of all, congrats.

    To be that close to the 10's... I would yank my hair out.

    This is great though, I can't wait to see what the difference with the cams will be. 3 mph or so in equal DA that was run?

    Thanks guys!!
    It was fun running again! Its with a new tranny, new stock converter, and the nitrous removed. Back to stock cams (for now) until the software is ready for the MHP cams. Hopefully that will be sometime in March. Until then I'm chasing a 10 second pass here in Florida. Made about 15 passes today at a private track rental and the best was the 11.07. Most all the passes were made in manual mode. The 11.07 pass was made in manual mode. They ranged from 11.28, two 11.184 passes and an 11.13 and then 11.07. Click here to enlarge

    The weather was 67 degrees and the DA was about +300 so I feel pretty good about the new time. We had planned to make the trek to MIR this coming Friday but the weather doesn't look any better than what we had today. When the weather gets cold we'll make the trip back to MIR.

    I strongly disagree, but it is a matter of opinion.

    No, it is just as you stated.

    There is, however, no debate in nitrous HP gains per $ which can not be beat. Additionally, on some cars you don't have other options where you can pick up power. If you are are the point where more boost will detonate on pump gas, what is your option for adding ponies? Well, nitrous sure is a good one. Also useful for spooling turbos and a beautiful direct port setup gets me excited. Look at the fastest E60 M5 1/4 mile time for example...

    Its good for 1/4 runs and such but its a one time use thing. I like the power to be constantly there. Once the bottles are empty you lose.

    True, but there are advantages and disadvantages to that as well.

    You either love it or hate it. After using it pretty much everyone is hooked kind of like with boost. Nitrous torque is undeniable and the power delivery can be precisely controlled with a prog. controller for larger shots. I'd personally rather have twins but as previously noted you can't always have what you want.

    A progressively controlled shot + twins is also not a bad thing...

    No, and sometimes it's necessary, but if given the option I'd go without just for the simple fact it's just something else that can go wrong. No question it works.

    Looking forward to it, watching and hearing the three of you go down track is going to be awesome. Kind of makes me wish we had 3 lane dragstrips. Click here to enlarge
