New PB!! Heading in the right direction!!!

Went to the strip today, 1/8th mile, with about -400 DA and cracked off an 8.22 @ 83mph, so I picked up a little over a tenth from my previous best of 8.33, I know it's not much, but it's definitely got my spirits up about heading in the right direction, even with almost 100K on the clock, here's a vid of the pass:
