    Finally made it into the 11's. Would have been happy with an 11.999 but the car surprised me a little bit and cleared it by a comfortable margin. Removed the passenger seat and the rear seats, they weren't quite as heavy as I was expecting them to be, or maybe I've gotten incredibly stronger in my older age.

    Props to the Gearhead E30 tune and Anthony Dicunzolo upgraded mounts, the car was 60 footing like crazy tonight. DA was around 1500.

    It was slightly less suspenseful than it should have been. I looked at my dragy time as soon as I turned off the track and saw it had recorded an 11.95. Still a rush tho!

    LOL! I used dragy for the first time at my last track outing and you're right it spoils it a little but also sort of nice I guess to see something right away. Dragy was a little slow so each time I grabbed my slip I was even more stoked! Couldn't export my best time which was annoying. But its a great tool.

    Same here sort of. My 1/4 times were fine but had my best 0-60 time by far be invalid due to slope. I didn't have the dragy mounted securely so it probably was jostled around. Still annoying to not be able to post your best time tho. Hahaha!

    I would have to double check, but I think 3 or 4 total. Base file was named 1, pretty sure the one I am running now is labeled as 5. From original base file to newest it was only about 2 tenths difference in track times. Most of the increases came from other things. Most recently newer struts seem to have made even most difference. Even before removing seats I was 1.7's 60 footing consistently every single pass after new struts.

    Matt has his tunes pretty dialed in already, so it doesn't take much revising, or at least not with my car.
