This weekend in past years seems to be the one I hit a new best or even the best of the year (around the 15th) I was hoping for some negative DA but looked to still be around 100 feet around noon. Figuring this could be my last trip (rain or even snow) I decided to do everything I could to try to hit my goal time of under 10.7. I went 10.82 last week in 1260 DA so around 0 DA I thought there would be a chance. I took the front sway bar off and emptied the trunk. Gas tank was just under 1/2. Scale ended up reading 4620. With a 1.57 60 ft the car was pulling pretty good and there it was 10.66@128! I could have just stopped running at that point, goal was met but I did want to run the right lane. My brain must have been some where else as I was doing my burnout holding the brake I realized I forget to engage the line lock. I knew the burnout wasn't good and it spun on launch, I got out of it and back in and ran a 11.11@131. The right lane has been showing more MPH this year so I know it didn't run that fast. It was a MPH slower at the 1000 foot then my 128 pass. I made one more pass a few hours later and the DA was over 500 and with a 1.59 60 ft ran 10.79@130 (right lane) It was a good day:)

Great runs, your car is moving out!

Way to recognize the right lane mph error, there was a guy a few years ago on the other Challenger forum who had a 6-speed 392 Challenger with a ridiculous mph that I believe he got at that track in Michigan and there was no way you could tell him his speed was off LOL

I noticed it last year but it was the left lane that was higher about 2mph My friend was running the right lane a week ago going 158-159 with a best 8.69. This past weekend he was running the left going 8.45-8.54 with most of the runs showing 154. His last it did show 158

I was 3rd at the track waiting to open (my friend Tim was 2nd) but 1st in tech. I like my Kestrel 5100 but for some reason the temp jumps around when it is cooler. Online it says the DA was -450 but my Kestrel was saying -250 to -200 to start. I put down -25 DA at 5:00 but online was saying -250. 1st pass car felt great with a 1.55 60ft but ran a 10.67@129. I ran the left line most of the day like last week. Car was showing 129 mph every run. I had some spin on a couple of runs. Tried leaving at 2000 rpm and 1500 rpm but seemed to do better around 1000. I ran 7 times 2 without an air filter which were a 10.72 and 73. I had 2 1.55, 2 1.57 and 1 1.59. My 3rd pass ended up being my best which I'm going to say the DA was -230 10.65@129. I have attached last weeks best with this weeks and I am a little dumbfounded though. I was .02 fast at the 60 ft .03 at the 1/8th and 1000 but only ran .01 quicker. The 1000 ft mph was faster last week but the 1/4 was more this week. It is possible the mph was reading a little different in the left lane. I ran the right lane once and it went 130.

I was really hoping with the air to get in the 50's but didn't happen

So Mike had his '15 Challenger Hellcat out at the track today. I met him last year at the track and ended up buying the 3.09's from him before I even bought my TAXI last spring. He has a 2.72 with 10% lower, e85 and a black ported supercharger by Jokerz that was for sale recently. It has a 105mm tb on it. He recently had it tuned by Barth. It has a drag pack and weighs over 4700 lbs I ran him twice and both times I spun go figure (the first I was trying to leave at 2000 and the 2nd just a little bit) His 60 ft still isn't there but he was happy. I told him last time he was at the track with worse DA and having some traction issue that he would go 9.5's today, I was right
