He felt the throttle plate close on the shifts and made him nervous. Understandable.

Major props man!! Congrats Thomas on getting that 9. Some more seat time, more boost and mid 9's are there easily. He did finally pull the seats this time. Last time he went 10.21 on 14psi with pump gas and seats in.

His GTR ain't no joke either. With a tune only he went 10.98@127 today too. Sounds like a great day at the track!!Attachment 26937

Thanks Harrison and thanks on all the congrats everyone...It was def a great feeling seeing the Jeep make it into the 9's..I wasn't expecting the GTR to bust out a 10 second pass either , that was icing on the cake!

The Jeep has more in her once we can get that converter loosened up for sure!! I was definitely a superstar at the track. Tons of people huddled around it the whole time I was there.

Stage6 continues to impress me on not only building such a MONSTER but also in there service after the sale..Harrison has always been available in walking this newbie through whatever I need and believe me I could not have done it without him

If I had to guess, I'd say at least a dozen. Not sure how many of them are running 100% right now though.

First Steel Blue Jeep in the 9's!!!

Lets see....... there's

BBill
Pete
BJB
Keoni
Me
HemiShopJim
John S.
Untouchable
Chris B.

Jeeps that are close or will have the power for a 9 are....

Muellge
Jason
Mondo
Mario
Ryan
Tommy
J&DSRT
I know TTC has a few going on I'm sure.

I bet by the end of 2013 there will be 15-18 Jeeps running 9's. A few Jeeps are getting some work done right now. It's not a matter of being "down". It's a matter of making them more efficient or better. Its really all still testing on these builds bc we are always learning something. Even Keoni who says he's "happy" with his build will be doing something to it this year I bet. Lol. You think you know what works, then you find out its not enough. I don't wish this power level on anyone to be honest with you guys. It's a never ending money pit.

At these power levels, its so easy to break stuff. At some point, you've got to get your Jeep to run a number safely, and learn to be happy with that number.

2013 will see Jeeps in the 8's for sure and more in the 9's and more in the 10's. Hopefully we will see some WK2's hitting 11's and 10's as well. That would be cool!!
