Thank's Scott, I will try to get some new ones uploaded soon. For the folks that don't know, this is the same old Turbo Toy that I have had all along and has been my daily driver since I built the car seven years ago. The only thing that turned it into a race car this year, was a C4 with a brake, a 5300  convertor, a set of slicks and the lettering on the side of the car. It's still the same motor and rear with the 4.62 gear and still has the full interior. Since I ran the 10, I have turned the driving over to Curtis Jr. We went to our local 1/8th mile track yesterday and he ran a 6.81 at 101.26 MPH. There's more in the tune, but we are easing into it to keep it conservative and safe. It's going on the dyno in January for Wes Kiser to finish the tuning and I still have to dial in the cam. We "hope" to roll it out at the beginning of next race season and run some mid 10's in the 1/4 mile. All of this is without any nitrous. Once we have it where we want it on the motor, I'm going to throw a 75 shot at it (can't help, it's eating at me) and see where that takes us. After a few nitrous passes, the system is coming back out of it, then just do some bracket racing and  have FUN.

Thank you sir. We're leaving the line off the transbrake at 4800 and the second and third gear shifts are at 7200. Car goes through the lights at around 6800 in the eigth and 76-7700 in the quarter. It still pulls good at the 7700, but the car is quicker with the short shifts between the gears. According to the calculators, the 6.81 @ 101.26 should be around a 10.70 @125 in the quarter, but until we actually run it, I'm not going to speculate.
