    edit: looking back to the earlier time slip, your 60', 440' and 1/8mile time are almost identical. The experts will be able to tell what it all means.
    60' is setup and launch (basically)
    If 330 & 1/2 track match other runs, but e/t is down if headwind is up.
    Maybe a tail wind snuck you the last .02
    What diff gear did you change from? What rpm change over the line in 3rd was experienced?
    Edit: saw page 1 again, 3.7 to 3.45 and a drop of ~200rpm over the line. Good move.

    went from 3.7 crossing at 6600, now the 3.45 about 6200. Never really thought about the wind before, had a look on 1320go last night was between -11mph to -18mph tailwind. last time i raced with the other gears was a +4mph tailwind and was slighty higher MPH. Thats a good point. Thanks

    didnt feel that way, was pretty fresh out there, and the wind was coming down the track, thru the tunnels (i'd call that a headwind) but it wasnt constant, and maybe it swirls around and pushes back up the track (and that would be a tailwind) where is their wind checker located?
    pauls car definitly needs new slicks tho, his best 60ft, is 1.43 or 1.44, so a tenth to the 60, should give 2/10th's, at the end, maybe 9.7? holy flying bananas

    I'd say the minus before the speed indicates a head wind which matches what you say about the wind coming through the tunnel.

    yep. dunno how much, but headwind WOULD slow it down somewhat.

    It would have to slow you down a little but whether that's a hundredth, a tenth or more who knows.

    haven't had much contact with paul355 lately, he's been running around, with a differant crew, they've all got shiny teeth, big muscles, money to burn ( you know, the 9second club)

    i'm out of my league

    guess, he doesn't wanna hang with 10 second peasants, any more
