New best time. ( upload added!)

I just came home to get some sleep, but have to get back to the track tomorrow. Another OSCA street car shot out.
I hit a new best of 11.64 @ 116 mph, with a 60' of 1.64. Full exhaust c/w converters and full interior.
Qualifying runs were today, eliminations start tomorrow.
Talk to you guys tomorrow.
Regards,
Matt.

Very good! .......ESPECIALLY considering the not-so-spectacular short time. You're making some power!
What was your 60' on the 11.59 pass?

Like Pat said ^^^^

11.64 with 'only' a 1.64 60 ft time means you're doing big things at the top end!

Congrats on the 11.59

60' foot time was 1.63 for the 11.59. And,,,,,,did I heard someone say Sundowner? I have not been there in about 10 years!! I am about due!!. Although my wife substitutes at home very well, I can't complain.

I was also sent a video of one of my passes. I was trying to run in the 11.90 class but the jetting I had was causing me to run too fast. Even with the window switch set at 3900rpm, I was still breaking 11.81.
So,,,, I tried to go just a little smaller, say removing 25 hp with of power, but I went right down to a 12.05. Unfortunately, when I ran that pass, it was against this Ford that was driven but this older smuge SOB. At the track, racers talk amongst each other and USUALLY get along. This guy came over to ask me if I was running open Comp, because he was wondering if he would have another chance to take me down again. I thought at first he was joking, but he was up right ignorant and was not making a joke about it.
I will post up the video, but I apologize to you guys that you will have to see him get the best of me with his 11.98 to my 12.05.
I have already set my sights on him for the 18 and 19 of September. I WILL be calling him out, through the track officials, as a grudge match.
I understand, win some, loose some, but revenge on a person like that, will be sweet.

Sh8kinss,
That would be great. You are right, the passes and runs I have been making and competing in is at Cayuga, ( Toronto Motor Sports Park).
It would be great to meet some follow members.
I think that will be on my next agenda. I know there are members on here from all over. I am going to try and keep tabs on any events that anyone on here is planning.
I have a 2005 Chevy 3500 completely loaded. I used it to take my car to Virginia Motorsports Park. Ashley Force wanted to meet me there to take me out for lunch. (Just Kidding!, my inlaws live 20 minutes from the track).
But it would be nice to be able to attend some events and put some faces to some names.
Keep it in the back of your mind, the next event at TMP is Sept. 18 and 19 for OSCA. I will be there looking for the Ford.
Now,,, I will see if I can get that video uploaded.
Goodluck at the track.
Regards.
Matt.
