First run:
I ran a [email protected] 2.355 60' and [email protected] for the 1/8th.
Tool ran a [email protected] 2.147 60' and [email protected]

I crossed the finish line first in both runs. First run i crossed the finish line .932sec befor tool and in the second race I crossed the finish line1.183 sec befor tool.

Reno ha footage and a kid at the track came up to me and said he had footageand would email it to me, we'll see. My friend who was there also took a video clip on his phone, we'll see how it turns out.
The video and images of the time slips should be coming soon. I am not home tonight and have no way to post the time slips, sorry.
Hey what's up man. I'm the kid who got your runs on video. I lost your email adress in the wash so I had to track you down like this... lol.

I'll upload the videos right now and post 'em up for everyone to see since everyones so hyped up about em.

Wow, just wow. Over 630 posts, 20,991 views and no 11's at least?! Jesus. Not trying to be a jerk but, this is a lot of fuss over NOTHING. I feel someone needed to say it.

Excellent thread. I have really enjoyed following it through to its conclusion. It seems to me that 12 secs is about as fast as a 944 will ever run 1/4 mile on road tires because of traction regardless of power.

Got to say I know he gets a lot of flaming on here and as far as I can see he seems like a decent chap who genuinely loves his car and adds plenty to the community. But what was Special Tools car supposed to be running hp wise on that run? It certainly didn't look very quick or sound like it was going through the gears quickly? I'd have guessed about 320 flywheel hp if I didn't know the car?!

The nut-huggers are always hard on the newer guy. That's just the way the cookie crumbles.

Nicely done, Tms951. A 12.2 in a 951 is no small feat! When can we expect an 11?
