So this weekend at Lebanon valley Ny there was a no time event but also had 6.50 index 1/8th mile class i entered
Friday we tested and struggled as this was on a .500 pro tree and i run reg on a .400 pro tree

I went from
4100 launch rpm all the way down to 2500rpm
front tires from 40lbs to 22lbs  
put rear tire at 11 vs 13
front end full loose


just trickled the bulb when staging during the day we went .011 ,.009 and .015 reaction times but then when we got to semi's i went RED -.012 but what hurt was i kept my foot in it to get some info . It ran a 6.500 as that was our luck but thats racing and we had a lot of fun started out with 23 or 24 cars and went rounds on a tree we dont usually run . If i do this type of racing again on a .500 pro tree i will get another transbrake button that has shims to play with as my biondo double O is really fast

Below is a video my wife made and hope you guys like it , we are not pro's at the you tube stuff just a husband and wife that enjoy some index racing

Good driving as a whole ... what really hurts is that the other guy "broke out" on the red light run.

You're kinda close to me. I'm a couple hours west of Lebanon Valley.
