    So straightforward it seems like cheating!

    Any idea what his order spec is? I can tell no sunroof or glass roof... also looks like 19" wheels but I can't be sure...

    i love how undramatic it is. no BRAAAAP, no roar, no squeal, no fireworks. just a calmly rising hum. so nuts that it's a mid ten second car. :)

    He dropped the tire psi down to 25 or 30. I would have kept it at 45 for less rolling resistance. It appears the lower psi has a better trade off. We are so close to a legit 10.5 run.

    Lower psi may have improved traction at slow speed more than the loss at high speed
    in which case some Pilot Sport Cups at normal pressure might be all that is needed.

    what if you were to run 19's with lower profile tyres?
    would the slight change in gearing do it?
    (or the opposite of course)

    Good question because the Motor Tend ringer had arachnid 21". Maybe they dropped the PSI down to 25 to get 10.5 @ 125 MPH

    I've tried dropping pressure, no difference for me...

    I got 2 notices from Drag Times yesterday. The first bested the previous 1/4 mile time by 0.003 sec and then this one beating the new record by 0.084 sec.
