      and almost didnt stop. unbeknownst to me, on this last pass of the day (for obvious reasons LOL) the staging brake decided to puke all over. but i didnt know it until the pass was made and it was time to stop. and i got all of this fountain show on vid as i use a gopro to specifically watch the shifting action. the brakes felt a little bit mushy after the burnout, and the staging brake didnt feel as tight either.

      the day was great, made 3 full passes in a row, all shifted great, each one progressively quicker than the previous by .13 sec each. picked up 37 mph on the back half of the first pass even.

      i am working on processing all the videos, and Jon is going to do some intro work i think. so stay tuned for those.

      but boy MF HOWDY, what a world of difference it makes actually being able to shift easily and cleanly!!!!

      my tuner told me once i run a 9.5x he will give me >800 at the wheel.... well i did it!



      here is the air info for each run:

      Congrats bud!!!

      Aaron, was curious as to how much of a a difference would being higher than sea level make? I know 183 ft isn't too high up but it has to make some kind of difference.

      Can't wait to see what the car does > 800whp... Gonna be hurtin some egos lolz.

      Local honda dude on same turbo as yours is making 900+whp on that thing...

      done deal. already bought a new staging brake, a CNC one this time. talked to Jamar about this one and they want to see it to fix it.

      and i will be running Sunday at the Bug-In, trying some more. i am just going to reconnect the brake lines under the car to bypass the staging brake.
