I've been meaning to get back up to the asphalt with my Jeep again. I see 131 is open up thru November, so I'm going to try and make it there once this year!

Interested, maybe impressed. With such a packed crowd, how did you take their breath away? I actually am very interested.....

Sounds like an average night at the bar for me.

first pass 11.03
second pas 10.80
third pass 10.56 129mph
should have made a couple more passes but was running late and had to leave. it did make me want to fix third gear in the tranny and put a trans brake in it see if i can squeak a 9.99 out of it. i heard that a race cover on the s400 is worth 4 tenths.

A dune flag will shave a full second.

If you put a dozen on there you will be at the finish line before you start!

I'd like to squeak a 9.x pass off in my Jeep too, but I'm not sure how Martin would feel about that...... Thinking I'd get asked to leave.
Car sounds good!

i thought i would get booted because i have no cage, but they never said anything to me and the tech guy looked at my timeslip every time. he mentioned the 11.50 cage rule in tech but never booted me so idk.

9 secs in a jeep sounds scary!

I'm really surprised they didn't say more to you for going 10.5's with no cage!
I can't launch hard at all, so I had to baby it for the first 60-100' the last time I had it to the track. Went 10.7's launching like that and letting off at half track and finishing the run from the 1/8 to the 1/4 at half throttle
It was only going 115MPH at the end, and was surprisingly stable. Well, stable until the slightest hint of anything going wrong I'm sure
