Year in Review

Postby Asylum » Mon Dec 14, 2009 8:51 am

I was going over my notes for the past season and there are some highlites.

60' times improved from a 2008 best of 2.024 to 1.980

ET improved from 14.22 to 14.06

MPH improved from 99.14 to 99.75

Winnings are down from $1475 to $1190

And I incurred my first major breakage when an axle let go Nov 1st.

But there were other neat happenings....

Barry came out of nowhere with 14.1 in his 3500 5-speed.

Alex is well into the 13's

And 2010 looks like the year of the 13's for a handful of N/A cars!!!

And Rodney got everyones attention with a 12.50, 119 MPH run on a slippery track.

I'm sure there's more memorable stuff.... :Yahoo!:

Wait wait wait, I'll end it right here.

When you are in boost and shift into the next gear, how much boost will you start out with in a 5 speed with that next gear?
