Yes but just barely. I believe at brainerd I ran 12.226 @ 106, and at the rock I ran 12.225 @ 113. I havent found pics yet but according to a few people there I lifted the left front tire about 8".

well i'v got one, i pulled out of a gas station onto a 2 lane 50 mph road right behind a late model mustang gt, he waited for me to pull out then took off. i kept the jav right on his ass as we went to about 80 then had to stop for a light. ahead of the light was a bridge that went accross the interstate, i was ready for him to blast off when the light changed but when it did he just took off slow

there we go! The fear of realizing if an old car wants to race, it probably will win go to him (-=

i've kinda been looking for the stop lite race most of the summer, but when they hear the lump of the cam and rumble from the flowmasters, they don't even bother trying to race, all they want me to do is smoke em up  Wink
