Yep I headed out there...it was good fun....I had the first time "jitters"....so my R/T times were crappy and so was my 60' of course....I posted on SVTperf.com but long story short I made 2 runs just feelin her out (only had her alittle over a month, and no track experience)...anyways first run 12.6---60' 2.089--R/T .538--MPH 113.3 Second run just a tad better....12.4---60' 1.999--R/T .612---MPH 114.1 Yeah yeah told ya the R/T's were ugly....lol...I have Nitto Drags just gotta learn to heat em up enough and get my launching down.....I REALLY wanted 11's, but for my first time I settle for 12.4----Hope to go again maybe next Friday or the Friday after that.....anyone wanna roll holler----Jon

Good times for the 1st time out.. Don't worry about the reaction time yet, the time does not start till you leave the line anyways. The 60' times are not bad, but could be better by launching harder.
Sounds like you had fun anyways. Congrats.
