Got to take Jeep out in some better weather last Sunday . After a long cool down i achieved my PB in it. Had a good 60 ft (1.65), and she pulled out a 11.9987 :D . DA was still 800 + (my track is located at sea level) so weather wasnt perfect. I didnt get a MPH for some reason ..my guess from past times at track it was somewhere around 111-113.

Any opinions on my 60 ft and time would be appreciated ..Oh tires were Toya proxie 1's, and i have a 2800 pro torque converter ( i actually just left at idle though)...I was thinking about perhaps upgrading to the new Dominator converter but didnt want to mess up if that was already a decent time

thanks, Thomas

Congrats! That's about where I was on my first runs with the 426.... except I needed NT-05R drag radials to pull off an 11-second run. Have you tried launching at anything other than idle?

Congratulations on getting into the 11's.....
That 60' time isn't too bad either.
I think if I were you I would stick with the converter you have now and use the money you would spend on a new one plus install on something else to get you deeper in the 11's. What is your complete mod list? Just wondering what else you could throw at it to shave off another 4 to 5 tenths and get her to roll bar territory..:D
Maybe a 100 shot of nitrous would do it if you don't mind using that..

Great run. The Steel Blue paint is probably netting you about 2 tenths though. :D

Nice mod list man and nice runs! I would add a nice. Stage 3 ported intake manny from Modern Muscle opened up to a 90 mm throttlebody and a set of Thermalators..... Also like Bill said a nice 125 shot of the giggle juice as well:D
