Today's cold weather should have been challenging for traction, but great for some additional power. What was your friends best 60', qtr/trap combination under these conditions.
MS109 is oxygenated with mtbe while MS109E is oxygenated with ethanol. He didn't use any race fuel and his best time was 12.94@111.5 but I don't recall his best 60' but it wasn't anything too great or terrible. He definitely could improve that time with some practice as it was his first time at the strip and also he doesn't have the paddles which I THINK means no sports auto and may effect his shift times compared to mine.

SDG I'm sure I would do better with 19's just unsure of how much better.

W5lx I don't buy what Mr.Wallace is saying at all.
