Well, I never made it back to the track with the 240 for a more respectable time, but I did update both posts with the time slips loaded so you can get the 60’ and other info if you want to put it in your chart. Thanks man!

Thanks klr142 I'll fill in the details.

It was getting a little hot in here. Good to see some data...

People, just run your car, post your times. It's actually fun! Make lots of passes. Do big burnouts. Make donuts. Just do it.

yeah there's no apples to apples way to do something like that. a 1/4 mile on the east coast however is the same distance as a 1/4 mile on the west coast ;)

13.50 at 101, 2.0 60' for mine today, timeslip sent over to Ken to get added. Even with the car hurt, running a stock head, and boost down to 19-20 it still got up. Track prep was lousy, had one run that I just roasted em thru 1st and half of 2nd, to pull a 14.2 at 99.

Ryan got a 13.7, Jimmy got a 14.4, all of us Volvo powered. I do believe that puts the Best coast back in the lead again.

Cool. Nice meeting you out there today! Definitely hit me up if you have tuning questions. At some point once I've got some time, maybe we can do a little tweaking on the tune as well, see what we can dial in for ya once you're sorted out on everything else.

Great to meet you guys too, defiantly learned a lot. 80lb injectors on there way from Racetronix, not ebay injectors this time. Once I get the car all set up some help with the tune would be great.

Cool deal man! Once I make some progress on my tune with a pretty similar setup I'll have an E85 tune you can try if you want. I haven't even started tuning pump on mine.

I'm down to try e85, 80lb injectors enough for that? They just put in a station near college and my normal station at home has it so I could run it year round

Since a 11 is a 11 as far as points go please add the 11.8 at 87mph. Shouldn't have lifted on that one even with coasting the last 200ish feet that on would have been a 10.

80's should be fine for now. I'm running straight E85 with the 65's but they are maxed out at 20psi. The 80's should get me safely to 24 on E85 without too much concern.

That one's great Erik...87mph. lol

Sorry East coast, looks like we got you again.

Nice work, guys!! And Ryan, I didn't know you were running LH2.4 on that thing, also nice.

James, we just have to get you off the line a bit faster to see you in the 13s.
