    True, the Hemi was under 10.80 though, not 10.90. :TU:

    Both are very impressive.

    So........your telling me that at Stanton, we're throttle stopping/reverse tuning 6-7 tenths of a second out of these cars to try to run slower than 11.50:rolleyes:

    The big deal at Stanton is the lack of traction, even more than the need for tuning to get the cars less power. The Hemi cars are even more hindered than the Corvettes due to the lack of traction on the starting line. The air afforded by the sea level location, plus a superior track surface and preparation only add to the reduction in et's. The numbers you have heard about so far were during a "track rental" time Friday, before the actual start of the event and were not a part of qualifying. In actual qualifying, up to this moment, times are as follows.

    Julie Pennington 10.876 @ 125.58

    Ed Keim 10.982 @ 123.32

    Rick Mahoney 10.990 @ 127.07

    One other thing, all three cars were on treaded tires. They be well worn, but tread is still visible, so they are not to the point of being slicks.

    It's been made obvious over the years that this time of year at that track is the place to post some unbelievable E.T.'s,60 footers,MPH.

    It all starts with sticking the car to the line. If you make a strong start, it's going to accumulate through the run to the end, resulting in Low E.T./High MPH.

    Have fun gang, looks like people are setting new personal best's.:TU:

    Backed up the 11 second runs. Got a 11.97 and a 11.92.. Track HOOKS!!!!!!!! got a 1.81 and a 1.82 60foot. Motor isn't puking oil any more, freshened up motor is starting to loosen up and rings seat. Lost a Great opportunity At Mir- Apparently when change jets---- your supposed to tighten them!!!!! Man was I pissed at myself.
    Car started running ruff and loosing speed. Changed carbs, Adjusted valves, Changed plugs but it was to late.. we only got a couple runs for qualifying. Took the carb apart AND there's the Jet laying in the bottom of the bowl.. Grrrrrr Fixed her up and boom- back in the 11s
