Finally made it to the Race Track on my new wheel,tire setup.
Weather was nice Yesterday so we went to Us41 to test My new Tires,Wheels and rear, front shocks.
My first run was nothing but wheel spin as the track was not prepped very good.
My second run I did long burnout and I was finally able to hook from idle and run 10.98 @ 124 mph.
My third run I also did long burnout but I launched from 3k rpm and my 60" improved(1.57) and the car run 10.93 @ 125.23 mph.
My forth run I launched from 3500-3800 rpm and the car hooked(It felt like someone rear ended me) and the car took off like crazy but a couple of seconds later I hear big boom under my hood and the car died. I shifted to neutral and tried to start the car while the car was still rolling down the track but nothing,car didn't start so I stopped the car and opened the hood and I was ready for the worst, but it was only Supercharger Discharge tube blown away from the throttle body.The good think I had flat screw driver in my center console and i was able to reinstall the coupler and drive away on my own from the race track and back home(60 miles from race track).I think the forth pass would be 10.8 or even 10.7 as the car felt very strong and my 60" was killer too but I am still happy to run 10's and very happy how the car rides with new shocks,struts.Before I go to race track again I will install T-Bolt clamps on my discharge tube so everything should be good next time and hopefully the weather will be cooler too.

here is the time slips.




Here is Videos of my 10 sec passes.
The clocks don't show the Times as I was running off clock.
The car in the first Video red lighted really bad.
