    My friend Don just got his combo finished (for now) and made a pass at Norwalk. Check it out:



    I looked at the video frame by frame and his front driver's tire didn't settle down until about the 60 foot mark.

    He's running a slow boost ramp in this pass. The next pass he set a 1 second ramp, had a 60ft of 1.34, carried the hoops and blew out 2nd gear, so we went home.

    Here he is loading it on the trailer. Rear tires are 275/60 Mickey Thompson Pro Drag Radials on 15x10 beadlock wheels

    The engine looks pretty sweet with the twin 6766

    Good to hear. Hopefully you can make it back to Norwalk before it gets too cold. Let's see some solid 8's!!
