First run on the motor12.9 at 105 with me short shifting.
second run 12.6 at109 with a problem shifting into 3rd...it would not engage for some reason.
Third run left it in drive and hit the nos in second gear 12.5 at 115 the nos cut out at mid track...bad adjustment on the micro switch.
Forth run in drive...11.9 at 120 mph.
I need to find out why the trans is messing up...and it needs more convertor.

Thumbs up

Not bad for the first time out. 120 MPH is good for 11.40s with a better launch.
