NEW 1/4 mile record, but no 12 just yet!

Went to Dragway 42 today, and set a new 5.7 Cherokee record.

13.45@102.21

Not the 12 second pass I was hoping for, but we have raised the bar once again.

Made 5 passes, and all were consistent 13.4X, so I figured it wasn't going to get any faster and packed it up.

That 12 is just so close, ran against a Daytona R/T which turned a 12.8@107, and it was only a half length ahead of me right at the end.

Close but no cigar!

Dragway 42 is a nice local track, but it is not a fast track, has a slight uphill rise it seems when viewed from highway 42.

I think I will give it one more shot this year and head up to Milan MI in a week or so, I have always turned fast times there.

Stayed tuned!

Re: NEW 1/4 mile record, but no 12 just yet!

Thanks, little disappointed, but we keep chipping away at it.

Seemed like it pulled harder the other night, course it was a little cooler and I had the engine and IAT quite a bit cooler than when running today. It was also dead flat as well where there was a slight rise in the track today.

Milan MI runs at night, so you can get some really cool air with the vehicle cooled down and get right to the line. Will probably give it that one last shot for the year if I can get all the house chores done!

Re: NEW 1/4 mile record, but no 12 just yet!

Oh, forgot to mention that I had the crap scared out of me today (after the fact).

Was lined up next to a supercharged Ford Grenada (think it was SC, heard the whine).

I got a slightly better RT and a slightly better 60ft and 330ft, and then.....

He lost it, crossed from the far lane into the near lane (mine) right behind me and hit the wall in my lane!

Did not realize it till I picked up my slip and his time stopped after the 330 ft mark!

Looked back up the track, and saw him in the guard rail.

Fortunately he was not hurt, but tore up the front end of the Grenada.

Very very nice Tim.

All this talk about times at the 1320 makes me want to go right now.

I gotta see if I can make it next Sunday.
