Thanks guy’s !
Plan was to run in the 9’s this year, just needed to
Keep focused and chipping away at it and hopefully it would
Happen at some point . After 4 passes in the low 10.1’s I new it was real close.
And skipping. A 10 and 9.9 was a bonus. While doing it

Here is some funny bits . Since the great Canadian I have
Done ZERO maintenance, the motor is so Dialed-in I don’t need / want to touch it.
No plugs , tweeking , valve adjustments ,or oil changes.
the deck lid has stayed on and have logged a lot of street miles
Testing my new electronic clutch management controller. (ECMC).
Was waiting to go if weather ever agreed .Sunday was perfect so headed out and after 5 passes
Was able to set up new rear shocks and Get the clutch management controller real close.
This was the first time in a long time I raced with the deck lid on and I never opened it once
While I was out there, and with no daughters to help things ticked along a bit slower.
Just kept checking fuel level and rear tire pressures after every pass , checking logged data, one shock adjustment, .5 psi tire pressure drop and Clutch management controller settings.
Really great day . half pass/half pass/10.8/10.3/10.1/10.1/9.8.
I was not out worrying about running a low number just wanted to play with the clutch controller
And all its settings at the track , but after 3 in a row very low 1.4 sixty foots I decided it was getting late so time to put it all together.
