What an excellent day we had at fontana today. No wind, high 60s, and no rain. I noticed at the beginning of the day, that the track was prepped excellent. I brought my trailer this time, and got second in line in the area before tech. It was great having the trailer. Adam was scanning data on his laptop with EFI live, and everyone else was analyzing time slips. We ended up getting finished with four runs by 12:30, so we ended up doing six. We had lunch, talked smack, and used the roof deck on the trailer to take pictures
What a great day, the track was prepped, we ran great, and are bests were as following:
Me:
60':2.03
1/8:[email protected]
1/4:[email protected], almost in the 12s

Doug:
1/4:[email protected]

Adam:
1/4:[email protected]

JD Diesel:
1/4:[email protected]

Maury(aka sickpuppy)
1/4:[email protected]??

Doug and JD were doing grudge races the entire time. Adam and JD ended up heading out at our 4th run. Overall, we had an excellent time

Also, the grudge races between the blue blown camaro, and the silver non-blown one. That was mid 10s. They were always neck and neck.

Dad's 60' was 2.03. He launched at 5psi pretty violently. On the 5th run, it launched, got air, and snatched and grabbed the CV joint. He was bouncing around like crazy at the start, and shooting smoke out, then I saw the smoke stop, and that is when My heart dropped, the 5th, extra run did it.
