    Hold it as hard but a briefly as possible. You can also miss your boost target by holding it too long. But also...more spin slower 60ft. Traction is the key. Good luck man! Kill it!

    It was a late night at the track with kiddos. The staging lanes were pretty crowded. A bunch of cars broke down and most of the night was spent watching the track staff mop and prep the track over and over-shit happens.

    I was able to get two passes in. First was an 11.52 then an 11.47.

    The only difference this week was adding methanol for cooling. The major change was the revision to the tune from Matt at Gearhead. I think he sent me the revision an hour after I sent him a log.

    I definitely need to get my launch cleaned up a bit. I was racing my wife in her stock Explorer ST on both passes and we were competing to see who could get the lowest reaction time. On the 11.52 I started to brake boost a bit late so I launched kinda slow. I had some wheel hop in 1st on the 11.47 run. I think the car has an 11.3 with a better launch. Overall the car itself felt great and consistent!

    My 10 year old son had my phone most of the night and recorded half of the 11.52 run and the full 11.47. My wife is looking forward to getting her ST tuned by Gearhead next week, she really wants to beat me :)

    I did see another SHO at the track though! He ran a 12.38 I think. I can’t remember all his mods but it was full weight, stock wheels & tires and ran a 12.3x.

    Finally tested the DJI Osmo 3 with my IPhone & draggy. Video came out looking pretty good. I didn’t launch too hard. I’m saving those hard launches for the track!



    I made two runs today 2 hours apart. It’s amazing how consistent the car is. She might have a future in bracket racing.

    I also find it interesting how the slope is always different even those I always use the same spot!

    Thanks man It’s been a bit quiet in here lately, the track has been rained out the last 3 weeks. Hopefully I’ll get out this week. I’m I have made some adjustments, more weight reduction, some tune revisions.

    Also, got the ole girl down to 4040lbs!

    For the 4th week in A row the track is rained out! The time hasn’t been all lost as I’m a few more tune revisions in and ye old SHO is feeling pretty good.

    I put the seats back in since the kiddos were demanding a ride or two. Today I took my son out and had an interesting “Karen” experience. I was cruising down a 2 lane access road along a highway and a wild Karen in a Jetta comes screaming down the road behind me. I’m going like 55 she’s doing maybe 120ish with loud exhaust. As she passes me she swerves into my lane and almost hits me. She missed my front corner by maybe 6” . She keeps zooming down the access road and I jump on the highway kinda amazed at what just happened. I stay on the highway until we get passed a town and exit back to the access road. A stop sign sits about .5 mile after the exit and as I roll to the stop sign i look over to the left and see the same Jetta rolling up to the stop sign. I have my son in the car so I just accelerate normal and this wild ass Karen waits till we’re going about 30 hp cuts me off again and brake checks me! I slam on the brakes try to pass her and she attempts to side swipe me, she misses I go in to the shoulder she goes back into her lane. I slow down get back on the road and she’s in front of me slowing down and aggressively swerving like 1’ in front of me. She then pulls over, I pull next to her and she has some dumbass moronic smile on her face and I start chewing her out. She then says “she was just having fun”. She then acts like she is righting down my plate number and says she is calling the police and that she was just driving normally .
    I point to my dash cam she looks at it in horror, mouth gaped open in disbelief. Her drunk red checks turned pale as she punched it down a side road lol. I think she just realized that she was fucked. She tried to hit or swerve into my car 7-10times in a few seconds, who the fuck does that. Lucky for her my dash cam wasn’t on, DAMNIT.

    20 minutes I’m merging off the highway and a cop in an Explorer turns onto the road blowing a yield sign. I slow down because it appeared he was just going to take my lane also. As soon as that thought enters my brain. He makes pretty hard left almost side swiping me!! I slam on the brakes, abs kickin. WTF! I pull up next to the cop and he turns the other way with no signal again.

    I drop my son off at home a mile away and go to Sunoco to get some gas then off to Walmart to get a new SD card for my dash cam. While waiting to make a right turn on a busy road a Challenger is coming down the busy road from my left and does a little neutral drop under the over pass. Perfect, something normal today! I make my turn and pull up next to him and give it a little ripskie since his window was down. At the same time he slows down and I realize after I pass he was turning into the neighborhood, damn!!

    But wait!

    Challenger bro couldn’t take this insult to his might and Mopar! He turns off the blinker weaves through traffic and pulls up next to me. I have my windows down and he starts throwing his hands around like I disrespected his momma, weird as fuck. I see a gas station 100 yards ahead and pull in because either he wants to race or he wants to fight I’m not really sure at this point in the day. I figured he’d pull in behind me but instead he turns right and peels away down some side street, wtf!?!

    What a weird day, I did get my dash camera up and running though. I am going to order a new system that has two cameras one front, one back. The crazy index keeps climbing

    Damn dude! If I was you I'd just park the car in the garage and call it a day.

    Yah kinda wild, I really don’t drive much since I work from home. While the car is virtually stripped but seats I might install a front and and rear camera.

    Had a good time at the track last night, weather wasn't ideal but the car just slightly edged out out its previous best of 11. 479 with and an 11.477. Days were were maybe 1500 over that last time out. The 11.47 came on the pass 4 of 4 when I decided to brake boost a bit more. I had a couple of hard wheel hops followed by some baby hops. My car only came with one trans mount, @Jordan_R suggested I get the bracket and mount the second one to reduce wheel hop -I hope to do in the next week or so.

    I was trying to get some great reaction times tonight but that didn't work out. I red lighted 3/4 runs :)

    It cracks me up how much love & respect it gets at the track. I wish I could film peoples reactions when then hear what it runs, good times. The car itself is running great and @mattr66 really has the ole HEB_GTR shifting and running smooth! She currently weighs about 4200-4210 with me in and 25 miles to empty.
