    I did a 12.09 at 117.93 mph on a cold October day with a bit of tail wind. I don't have the upgraded turbos.

    Terrific! Beginning to think the PP hurts when you are going for top speed. Lots depends on where you end up at the end of 1/4. Want to max out the gear... Shifting to next one costs a couple tenths...

    I need to mention that I try putting al the chances on my side when attempting to do a personal best. Good track, tail wind, low temps, good DA... But, I too, am surprised that my trap speed is about the same or better than others that have the same mods or more and the PP. I must be a better driver! lol (I often read that on youtube that I am a bad or a good driver... the heck, the car is auto and AWD, beside RT, how can you be bad?).

    Steve, did you note my G8 times and speed? I turned a 12.071 @ 114.

    And my car was running lean, and didn't seem to really perform well at top end. My runs were at 800+ Alt... don't know DA but it was cold and humid.

    I was in the 12.6's with higher speeds before the 3000 Circle D stall, so there is more there.

    But... AIN'T IT FUN TRYING!!!!!!

    the grocery store is 1/2 mile or 2 stop lights from the end of my street, next time I go out I will write down the time when I leave and the time I get back.

    Anyone know of any SHO's running at high altitude? Wondering what kind of times people are getting at 5,000'+.
