F'n A !!!!!! Now that's what I'm talking about !!!

124 MPH in the 1/8th LOL .

And, folks need to take note that this was accomplished on 315/35/17 Hoosier's.
Many a person simply over tire their cars for drag racing purposes....the 275/40/17 and 315/35/17's are all that's needed to hook and trap 160+ in the 1/4.

Outstanding job, my brotha !!!!!
