3/7/20 NoFlyZoneArizona 1/2 Mile Event

Sooooooo.....good time, but not happy with final results. Although the last two runs, she matched or out MPH'd MUCH higher "listed" HP cars, I was limited to only 3 runs.

I'll be reviewing some of the video footage I was able to get, then splice it together...hopefully there's something there I can use

Trap Speeds:

1st Run: 106.3327mph

This run was an absolute shit show, lost traction, hooked in fourth and coasted to the end to regroup for 2nd run

2nd Run: 141.5985mph

MUCH better rolling launch

3rd Run: 144.0461mph

Good run....until the end. Cool down taxi back after run, car started hesitating/misfiring pretty bad. Pulled back to camp to look it over (No Codes).

IATís are most likely the culprit...were 150+ degrees (ambient temp was around 72 degrees) Plugs may also be gapped too high for e40 (.22) Going to pull plugs and take a look, if plugs are fine...I may just re-gap to .20 and do a few 4th-6th gear pulls.

I'm certain I left higher trap speed on the table.... I should've seen 150+mph.
