Yeah, I did that! I was actually in utter amazement that my half-a-tank FULL weighed down "OLD" '06 IS350 could make such a fast pass. The weather @ 50 degrees AND the fact I let the car cool down 30 minutes before I started making passes helped. This was only the second pass of the night AND before I even remembered to loosen up the dampening on the rear coilovers.
Thought others might enjoy the sheer excitment I had in that moment last night when I surpassed my previous best pass of 8.9xx by 3 tenths!
I had to forget to bring my GoPro last night huh.
The facts :
Reaction : 3.1007 (playin with the torque converter off the footbrake + no opponent)
60 ft : 2.0089
330 ft : 5.6427
ET @ 594 : 8.0968
1/8 ET : 8.6468
1/8 MPH : 81.81
