Thank you Jason , and on a side note most of the peps there had (open headers) pure race vehicles
First of all. Congrats Darren. :zbeer:12.2382 @ 112.53 60 ft 1.8484 and spun out of the hole A bit warm as well.
Robert it sure did pull hard !!
The bird & the (fast) Bull
Working on the video's the wife is not very good with camera to say the least.
Mike, Ron, Ray thanks for the kind words. I did decrease the air pressure in the tires to 18 psi. Ran four times. My best run (first of the day) (12.23) was against a Corvette, and I stayed with him until mid track when the engine busted out a bit :zdunno: and that was when he pulled away from me. As far as the rest of the field, there were a lot of open header, big cubic inch drag slicks. There were three Mustangs 5.0's and I just plain out left them . There is an 11 in there somewhere like Robert said because it pulls like a mule. And on a side note , make sure every thing is planted for it goes flying into the back seat LOL even the moon roof shade fly's openFirst of all. Congrats Darren. :zbeer:
Second of all, Daym that Taurus is fast! A real sleeper!
Third. Time to update your best time in your signature.
Did you try changing the air pressure in the tires? I'd try 15 up to 18 psi like Rob recommended. How many runs did you get in?
How did you runs compared to the rest of the field there?
Your right Ron he is a mess :crazy:Talked to him last time at the track about old muscle cars he's a hoot lol. And your right about the reaction , Old age or just practice lol , Have another in the works V with a WS6 , About needed ear plugs.That Fayetteville track announcer kills me. :tongue:
He's a mess ....
The car sounds good.
Man, Darren, you need to work on your reaction time.
I'm pretty sure I ran against that same Corvette. I had him beat to the 1/8th mile until he hit the nitrous and left me....

First pass & fastest with Silver Vette with whistle.
Ron I believe that is the exact same spot I starting loosing him. Never saw him out of my eye till about that point . Linda even said he was playing some catch up. Go get him monkey !!I'm pretty sure I ran against that same Corvette. I had him beat to the 1/8th mile until he hit the nitrous and left me.
I'm thinking with my next round of mods that won't be a problem.
Here is a good squatNice you can tell she's pulling hard ! Love the way MN-12's squat down .
