    Jim,

    Running from memory here, you break out of your class if you get into the 9's? Seems like a sub-10 pass is in reach based on that slip. Well done!

    I'm remembering that as well, but also that it was a problem for his class. I have slept since then...

    I think the reason he stays in the 10's is a tech thing. You get into the 9's you need a whole bunch of extra safety items. Then you might get the privilege of obtaining a license for that speed as well. It gets your doctors attention when you need to have an ekg done and you have to pay cash for it. Insurance will not pay for it. NHRA says you need it.
