This is right on. I am worried about the 60' as that is what killed me running my Viper. if I aired down and had the right tire, that is a solid .5 off the time, most of it on the 60' mark as I was pulling a crappy launch and had to come up at a low RPM and feather the throttle a hair with my Nitto 555R's and a 60' that should have been a 1.5 and instead was a 1.8 and had me launching before my power band and losing a lot of ET. That said, a low ET is good, but how you run on the street to me is more important.

Either way, have fun, be safe and drive home. Post up good, bad or whatever, learn from the experience but no matter what just have fun and post up some video.
