After a new record setting pass last time out the team wanted to once again get out and do some testing on the old setup. The main change was addition of the certified cage for 9 second passes.
Unfortunately on the first pass the team ran into transmission issues and had to call it a day. A sad farewell for the trusty old motor.
New cage to go faster!
In line for first pass!
After the end of the racing season the team decided to do some testing at Sonoma Raceway. To see what the old tired setup could do once dialed in.
Using the data from the last race the team worked to dial in the launch. After a wasted first pass due to a slippery track the team made some adjustments and lined up for a second pass.
The car managed to bite hard and shake off the collector at the 60′ mark. Letting off up top in an effort to not get kicked out since the cage was not certified for < 10.0s passes. To the teams surprise the car managed a 9.92@135. Unfortunately since the 10 second barrier was broken the team had to pack it up for the day. A bittersweet ending to a great day with a new personal best.
