Default 1st time w/Stage 1 on 1/4 mile strip

I finally got to run at a 1/4 mile strip with Stage 1 to see where my mods have taken me. The run was at The Texas Motorplex in Ennis, the site of the O'Reilly's Fall Nationals. I'd post the time slip, but my scanner is broken, so I'll just list what I did.

My best for the night and best ever in the 1/4 mile, so far:

R/T: .736 <-- They used instant green! Ugh!
60': 2.167 <-- Slight wheel hop, but very good hook up anyway.
330': 6.113
1/8: 9.401 <-- Second best ET for 1/8, best is 9.378
MPH: 74.11
1000: 12.269
1/4: 14.706
MPH: 91.41 <-- Should have been 94+ but I tried using a MBC and I think the PCM pulled some timing. I hit 93.30 in another run w/o MBC, but due to massive wheel hop, I only turned a 14.897 w/ a 2.436 60'.

As you can see, I was ahead of sakigt's times through the 1/8 but didn't get the pull on the top end like she did. No more MBC for me, I'll just let the Stage 1 PCM do it's job.

All in all, I was still pleased with the overall performance. BTW, temp was about 85 degrees with 80% humidity. Still waiting for cooler days for better times. Going back on Sunday for the Texas Muscle Car Challenge series. Forecast is for sunny skies with a high of 65 degrees. Maybe I can crack the 14.5 barrier. Wish me luck.
