    2nd Try at the strip

    Well today I made my second trip to the dragstrip (Mooresville Dragway) and went straight to the staging lanes after paying the entrance fee and ran a 8.81 on my first run with a heat soaked intercooler. I was amazed, because I thought my launch wasn't too great. I'll load up the time slip tomorrow.
