Copied and pasted from TF.

Finally did it last night. Went [email protected] on my first and only pass. 60' was kind of blah at 1.51 but it definitely picked up from there. Went [email protected] in the 1/8th as well.
Cost me another HG though. When we were staged the tree wouldn't come down so the starter motioned for us to back up. I let off the gas and t-brake but left the N20 button pushed for a split second too long I think. You can see it in the video when it puffs out a cloud of smoke from the exhaust. Guessing HG blew at the stripe because I noticed the tach went to zero while was on the brakes in the shutdown area. Limped it back to the trailer on three cylinders.

congrats on .the time!! too bad about the hg!! technology has made drag racing unbelievable. the computer controls allowing boost to be ramped up allowing the cars to hook up has allowed smaller tire cars to rip off amazing times!! best of luck going forward!! t`s ol fords

The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results......or so I've been told, lol.
Along with a 2.5 crank and flat top pistons, my engine now sports a solid copper HG with o-rings in the block and receiver grooves in the head.
Hoping for some solid mid 9's this next season.
