Weight was 2224, fastest speed was around 125, but I have that 2nd hand, haven't checked the time slips yet, gotta find them.

The 11.242 was only 100.49 though

Dream wheel says 340 rear wheel. That sounds about right to me.

Does dream wheel allow for lifting the throttle to stay on the track, lol

Surprisingly, that stuff doesn't affect trap speed as much as you think it would. It's probably within 10-20%

This is great. You have a year to tweak the car. The winning competitors are almost always the ones with the best sorted cars. More cars should come back for a second or third go. If you can get this thing to hook, I would love to see a side-by-side match race with the Nelsons.
