I had a car that I ran at the track and got about four 13.0 second runs in a row. A friend loaned be a can of booster and on the next pass I finally got into the twelves. 12.86 to be exact. Who nows if it was the booster or not . It could have been.

for about how long. i let it idle for like 3-4 mins. is it possible to let it idle for too long. Do you run 9's or 8's. and also i have a bog on take off and one of my friends said all the rxl's have them is this true?

adding octane doesn,t make power just allows you to run higher compression ,more timing. those boosters are kind of a joke 1 can to a tank increases octane maybe from 92.0 to 92.7

Also, for the past year i've been using BR9EV in my sled and the resistance to fouling they provide IS noticeable. EV=(gold palladium electrode) They are NOT V-shaped, but are instead a very fine-wire tiped plug. I never fouled a single plug last year. Even some of my friends have switched to this plug because it works surprisingly well.

You mean about the heat range?
It says right HERE

It's a simple mistake. I used to think the same.

Thanks megaman for clearing that up for me. Ive had that wrong in my head for years. I guess im lucky I have always used the same range of plug. The BR9es for every sled I remember.
