No, it wasn't. Dyno runs would not be on the list.
This is a legit run but I'm still waiting for the file to be emailed to me.
He was using NITROUS, which was a huge factor.

It depends. If I started from 0 and shifted the same as 1/4 mile, then my times would be higher because I would be shifting from 2-3 at around 65.
The extra shift time will make the times longer.
I start in 3rd gear at around 50 MPH.
