CoolJust got back from my first 1/4 pass at Gateway....best run of 13.37@105mph! 2.064 60' with 20s isn't too bad.
Got to run a red G8 twice, and there was a white G8 running too, awesome night!

I was wondering who's Black G8 that was in the spectator's area, saw yours sitting by the tower as usual. Did you plastic dip the wheels?

Oh and the tech guy put 11.50 on the sheet and circled it a bunch saying they've had some trouble.....I wonder who he could be referencing

Does the red one have LED taillights?

Also, what kind of turnout are they getting there?

The 2 runs I ran the red G8 he ran a 13.63 in sport and 2nd run in Drive was 13.76. My slowest run was my first at 13.44 when he ran his 13.6 and I pulled on him at the top. White GT was running 13.4s too, so there is a difference between your tune and a canned SuperChips tune.
Not sure how much the 275s help but I wasn't spinning launching at ~1300.

Both had stock tail lights but the White one had LED bulbs for the license plate and reverse lights, and the turnout was good considering both slick and street cars were there. Got 4 runs in.

yeah i got bored and plastidipped then painted over the plastidip with paint that somewhat matches the car color.
yeah the tech guys told me to keep an eye on certain cars and to radio in if they are going too fast, mainly a couple of vettes that didn't have a cage.
i was gonna get a pic of your car but my phone camera wouldn't come on quick enough lol
