14 The car left hard and motored down track shifting firmly into each gear at 7,400 rpm. The short section of the track was covered in 1.59 seconds, and we were happy to see the scoreboard light up with our first 10-second pass—10.87 at 127 mph. After some time for the car to cool, we headed back out for another pass. This time tire spin slowed the 60-foot time to 1.68 seconds, but the e.t. picked up as we ran a 10.82, this time at 128 mph.
