Hello All,
I've been encouraged to post my new record drag times from Saturday at Florida's Bradenton Morotsports Park. Although it was hot, hot, hot and horribly humid -- and the fast cars were turning low times -- I managed a best ET of 11.63 at 119.76 MPH. That's a new record for the N54. Time slips below. All of my 8 runs were in the 11s, from 116 to 119.76 mph.

I had the newest JB3 1.4 piggy, methanol, 100 octane, IRC custom exhaust and intake using BMS DCI filter. Also, Code3 FMIC, Ar DPs, Quaife LSD, Kosei K-1s with Hoosier drag radials.

I plan to be more active on this forum, and I welcome all of you sensible, courteous guys and gals to come over to the as well. Best wishes to all. Cheers! Larry
