Default 68 bird

Drove my bird to the track and made 2 passes Saturday night. First pass it was still 102 degrees out and the DA was at 4400 feet.
Car was 2 tenths off from where it usually is in cooler weather.

I hear you I remember chasing every possibility. But man if thatís been 118 mph thatís 11.00 may even dip into a 10.99. If you pick up more ET let us know what you did.

This car would most likely run a 10.90 at an east coast track like E-town or Island dragway
