    Knocked me down another peg. I quit racing minivans because I held the record for so long with no one getting close, now look at this place haha. Well done gentlemen!

    One question I do have though is, why can't any of you minivan guys 60'?

    Well, sorry.... sort of!
    You do still hold that record!
    I'm going to try for a better 60'. I've never had any decent launches on higher than 14.5psi in my 23x8.5x15 slicks. I've slowly been increasing launch control rpm, and i'm not up all the way yet.
    I don't want to get ahead of myself, but looking forward to Saturday!

    Ok, what is the minivan 60' record? I would be happy with the low 1.8s Wayne is getting.

    Dont push the red button.You hear me?

    According to the list, it looks like Corby has it with a 1.729!
    Of course that is just the lowest one on the list. He might even have cut a better one than that.
    Terry and Joe were both at 1.8's
    Something to shoot for! Anything in the 1.7's would be a new record for me. 1.81 is my best so far.

    Do you have a time slip? I have a HARD time believing you went sub 1.9's on radials in a van.

    Trust me I wish I could have got a better 60'. Even with my 24" slicks it feels like I'm just spinning. I've never been able to get any type of launch control to work. It's always been just, hold the brakes until I can't hold them any more, get little bit of movement and hit the nitrous.

    And Wayne, congrats!! Hoping to hear about some 11 second runs next time out.

    Thanks Gary!

    Got to get some sleep, going racing in about 8 hrs!

    Update for my wife, Teri Skrab
    Went to Cecil for the fall invasion day to test a little theory, and try some bigger slicks on her Spirit RT. Well my hunch of the car being over octaned, and the car really liked the larger tire. She bested her previous personal record with the car by a half second, and picked up a few MPH.
    Changes to the car from the last update, the car is sporting a 3.77 geared A523 with a quaife. Along with the bigger slicks, Mickey Thompson 24.5x8x15s.

    Is that 12.732 on the end? Is that Teri's new record?
    Congrats again Teri! That was a solid drop into the 12's!

    Yes it is! Once we got the slicks into a happy pressure, and the driver more comfy. She broke her personal best multiple times. Previously was a 13.29 so the 13.1 was an improvement, and she just kept chipping away at it. Car really seems to like the taller tire too.

    I think i will try that next pair i buy. Already got a plug in one of these. They are only used 2 seasons so far (31 passes).
    That's really great to keep improving and besting your times. Makes for a really fun day!

    Thanks Corby! I was trying to 60 like you!
    I was scrutinizing this video of my second run:
    https://youtu.be/7IrVZ1lmQJ8

    I launched harder off my staging limiter, and the van had a 1.795 short time even though it had this cutout like event that might be from fuel sloshing.
    It does look in the video that the van dips before going through the 60' mark.
    All this means, hopefully next time out i can cut a better 60, if the track is prepped well enough!
