Big day out in Isabel yesterday, got a little fried in the sun but had a fantastic day with the best (and last) run of the day yielding a 12.925 ET @ 110.3MPH, she's a beast! I guess they were not enforcing NHRA rules yesterday (convertible 13.49 and slower or roll bar), maybe given the nature of the event, but I was thrilled since my first run out of the box was a 13.1 (and with street radials!, too much merriment Saturday evening, did not get a chance to put them on before going on Sunday morning).

Okay, so here's the timeslips:

And five videos. First in-car was second run (forgot to video the first run!). Second in-car and accompanying video from the stands. And also from the stands, my buddy in his ZZ-1, 4 speed '55 Chevy. I spun pretty badly on both second and third runs. First and fourth runs were better as I dropped the clutch at lower RPM and pulled it out of the hole (but there's more left (probably a lot) in ET with the drag radials and some hook).

Last run was the best of the day and although I broke out of my 13.05 dial-in, I also broke into the 12's! I figured make it a win-win. I'd set the dial-in there so if I did not break out I was still in the game, if I did, I would be smiling ear to ear with a 12.xx on my timeslip! Such Fun!

Was truly a blast and never thought I would be saying Isabel (at 4150 lbs) is a twelve second car all day long!!!

A friend found this image from an event photographer. I may just have to buy it! Pretty cool.
