2nd time at the drags

Mods at this point: Dual exhaust, 80MM MAF and chip

Detractors: The worst tires in the world (Kelly Springfield), a clutch that slipped when hot

Notes:

Took it a little less easy on the transmission, and paid for it on the 3rd run...

Removed most excess weight (subwoofers, spare tire, jack)

Changes since previous track runs:

New plugs, gapped to .060

Cleaned intake

255lph fuel pump

Track conditions:

72F

5-10MPH headwind

Low humidity
