Better air = 12.809 new best!
 
Went up to Chevy Fest yesterday and first pass ripped a 12.809 @ 104.71 with a 1.767 60' The car was very rich on that pass ~11.6 but it hooked good and was 536' DA.

Next pass I took a little fuel out and had pretty significant wheel hop in 932' DA. 12.92

Then my dam window regulator got stuck and I couldn't get my window up! By the time I went back to the pits took my door panel off and tinkered around, it cooled down and went up. Then I only had time for one last 12.6 pass a little lean at 12.9ish afr in 1337' DA.

I really wanted to get a 12.7. I think I could have if I had more passes to dial in the fuel. Well I'm happy to improve either way.

Great runs for a bolt-on car.

Thanks guys! Yeah I'm getting there but not quite. I want to create either an exponential or linear gradient through the rpm range rather than just shooting for an average. I think at lower rpm you are supposed to use more fuel than up top or vice versa.
