Hell of a day yesterday. Track was prepped awesome. Ran a couple 12.90's at 115 and 116 with high 2.1 and a 2.2 60'. Then got a 2.02 60' and went 12.51 @ 117.7. Tried to back it up and destroyed an axle. Time to get some drag radials since the Dunlops won't even pass inspection. Oh setup was 11 psi on stock compression, TO4E, Eip Chip, FMU, Dumptube. Weight reduction was no rear seats, passenger seat, spare tire. Here is a small video. Make sure you right click and save as. Here is a pic of my bald ass street tires and the time slip.
Oh and thanks to Paul for the shifting tips that eat up automatic muscle cars with slicks. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

Hey, good times... http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif
I should have the car back down there in November for the Saturday test n' tunes.
I try to stay away from there because of the ET's and insane MPH that the track produces over and over. I do miss Cecil though, always a good time, it is kind of the good ol' home track for me even though I haven't had the car there for over a year and a half now.

When do you guys go to atco? As soon as I get some spare axles I will come up there. Sucked having to get a ride up to morgans to get an axle and come back and fix it.

True story. Thurs is bad if it rains on Tuesday as the gamblers run that night instead.
Definitely get there at gates, it gets crowded at about 7:30 so you want to get there as early as possible.

Well as Paul said you must shift fast like ninja. Then go half throttle 1-2 shift to make sure it gets in gear then after that never take your foot off the throttle. I am sure that stock suspension is killing you.

Does atco allow open exhaust on thursday's?
