Ben, that PB was with a lot of tire spin at Speedworld. I think Firebird will be better off of the line and overall 14'* are just a matter of getting it tuned and hitting the track.

I would very much like to get below 14.5 (or better ). Now that you have the ability to tune my Bonne, I think improvements are close at hand. Thanks for the support Thomas. (My real ultimate goal would be to get yelled at by the guy in the timing shack after a run, saying "If you want to run anymore, tonight, you need a helmet )

Lol... yeah TJ, when your racing season begins, mine will be ending until next October or November! It'* just too hot here to run good times in the summer. 100 degrees at 11pm is not drag racing weather!

So I was planning on heading to Firebird this weekend.
The Top Fuel NHRA boys "and girls" where practicing last weekend Saturday and Sunday so the track should be in pretty good shape right now
