Default Best nitrous quarter.

Thanks to CCW for wheels/tires that can hold a hard launch. Nitrous was set at 50% initial and ramped to 100% over 4 seconds. 100hp jets. Without nitrous, three runs at 11.9 - 12.0. This was the best of four nitrous runs. :D

:cheers: Congratulation on your new number. I can see a 10's coming up really soon.

Do you have a roll cage in your car? Or did you get kicked out of the track as soon as you hit 11's?

Tuan Le,

Thanks. I just put a roll bar (5 point) in last week. I've been asked not to come back until I did. :D

Now that's a complement! :D I can't wait to step it up on the nitrous. When I ran in the 12's I just wanted to run in the 11's. Now I'm in the 11's, all I want is the 10's. Is there any end???

Tuan,

Enjoy it now and marry smartly. I'm 50y/o in a few months. Too broke to afford fast cars when I was younger. My wife wants me to have fun now. Of course, it may be that million dollar insurnace policy. :lol:

jpvette :cool: times
now set the maximizer to 2 seconds (or less) to 100%.
Sure no problem with traction and you see 10`s with the 100 shot!!!

Then jet to 150 or 200 and follow me into the low 10`s!!!!!!

Good luck and have fun!!!!!
