I took the Cougar out for some testing and tuning again. I don't have access to a truck anymore, so I had to haul all my stuff to the track in the Cougar. I'll admit that I felt like a redneck driving around with a tire in the backseat and a toolbox on the passenger seat. I was planning on running the bottle this time out, but found a small mechanical problem before I went to the track, so it ended up being another day running on the motor. This pass was 6.87 @ 101.20. Not too bad for driving to the track.

I decided to take the Cougar out to the track for some 1/8th mile action. Drove it to the track, bolted on the slicks and gave her hell. Ended up being just over 70 miles round trip. Nothing broke this time!!!This pass was 7.10 @ 98.6 mph with a 1.54 60ft. I haven't managed to get much seat time this season, which may have attributed to my 1st round loss. I definitely could use a little more practice bangin gears. I really want to get some 1/4 mile passes in this year. Seems like I'm just getting started around the 1/8th mile mark..............

Test and Tune Old Dominion
Test and tune pass at Old Dominion. I was hoping to run in the 6's but wasn't able to get out of the hole very well. Looks like I had the base pressure on my clutch set a little too high. This pass was 7.024 @ 100.08 with a 1.56 60ft. I was launching off the two-step at 6k and shifting at 6500 on this pass. At least nothing broke.
