Thumbs up sets the Stock (tune-only) L99 record!

FWIW - the PREVIOUS stock L99 record was 12.97

Got some nice cool weather tonight, so I headed back to the dragstrip!
I was at US41 Dragway in Morocco, Indiana

The first thing I learned tonight was that using Sport Mode in the automatic makes the car A LOT faster.
I mean, the car never chirped the tires shifting into THIRD before!
Using Sport Mode (shifter in M, computer shifting) is easily worth a tenth, maybe more.

So anyway, I line up and make my first pass.
Launch felt good, power felt good.
13.095 @ 106.56

I thought - Wow, the air sure is good tonight.
I gotta keep pushing this car and it should go 12s tonight.

Made a few passes all in the range of 13.15 - 13.33
Comparing timeslips, the 60fts were similar, the car was just fast on the first pass for some reason.

Well then the timing system at the track broke down.
So everyone sat waiting and all of our cars cooled down for 30 minutes lol.

Back to the line. It's COLD outside, I'm shivering!
The lights drop and I hit it. Good launch, good power, felt good!
13.048 @ 106.67

I can taste victory! Hot lapping ensues.

12.994 @ 107.35

YESSS!!! First time in the 12s!
I'm jumping around inside the car from excitement.
Wait a tick, I'm .02 off the record yet, lets see if I can break it.

12.929 @ 107.64

YEAH BABY!!! The stock L99 record belongs to Cliffjumper.
Oh what the heck, let's keep racing. It's so fun.

12.865 @ 107.90

Holy crap, 12.8? This car is insane.
How much faster can it get?

Well, not much.
Made a few more passes in the 12.91 - 13.03 range.

Ok, I am REALLY low on gas.
But... but... OK just ONE MORE PASS!

12.849 @ 108.15

And with that, I took the timeslip, smiled, giggled a little, and went home.

A very successful night of racing! Thank you cold weather!
