Well yes it did. 2nd pass I had the shift light turned iffy and forgot. So it was on the limiter on the 1/2 shift. Had it dialed 8.92 tonight but the tree broke and they cancelled our class.

60 ft not as good today. Made a small front shock adjustment. But maybe the wrong way. We'll see in rd 1.

Went 3rds. The driver is not up to up to mid season form. I was stuck in the .030s R/T. With a .028, .034, .030. Started seeing the tree better with -.004, -.008. That was just too much starting line rpm. The 3rd rd dial was a miscalculation as well. All in all a good outing. We'll be at Mid Michigan Motorplex in 2 weeks. I'll get the breaking oil out. Cut the oil filter. Oil pressure is to high . Going to swap in a stock 440 reluf pump spring. Alternator quit so that'll get a look as well.
