I went out with my new tweaks to the car. Haven't been out since October of last year. Long story short I was looking to dial it in blower only and then spray it, but after reading my first log, I decided to run once more and then hang it up for the night.

My shift points in my new tune were accidently set to stock (he had it in his head that I would be spraying right away)

Silver lining is the car almost went 9.8 again, but it mid July. I was missing 600-800 RPM for my shifts.

I hope he sends a revision soon so I can get back out once this super warm weather dies down a bit.

I was hoping for a 9.6-7 in this weather and I think I would of easily nailed it. Goal is ultimately a 9.5 at my 4800lb weight boost only. Once it's dialed in, spray.

Luckily it doesn't "squat" much at all, but the front lifts quite a bit. This was only a 1.49 60' with a squeeze of the pedal off idle. Next time out, I'm going to get pretty aggressive.

Yup, dropped into the 70's and the DA was around 1800-2000.

I'll have to take a pic. [email protected] if I recall

Comparing my previous runs to this run, it was crazy to see how much different MPH was in each gear. Drove me nuts looking at it.

My "go to" e85 location. They had a big boo boo with a tank fill there and I caught it because I test every single tank. They had to empty out 3500 gallons of bad ethanol, clean the tanks, and replace it. It is back up and running. So many guys blind fill 5 gallons jugs there because it was that consistent. I'm just glad the station manager took my find seriously.

The one run I logged I was only 116 at the end of the 1/4 using the chiller.

I would let the car idle for 10-15 mins prior to a run between the pits and staging. IC coolant would get to 37-39 degrees.

If this car wasn't a daily, I would have looked at the ice tank, but they need distilled water, need to be flushed, need to be refilled, and do try and to runs this time of year, you are screwed if you get stuck in the lanes.
