Default Returned to the strip in the dako

Talking with hemifever and John Mercedes, I ran sunday in 93 degree heat, next steps are the following:

Dedicated trans cooler under bed w/ fan <-- biggie
Trans temp gauge <-- biggie
wire mk 8 rad fan to dash switch override <--not biggie, but on the to-do list
no tailgate, spare tire, jack, ect unnecessary weight (That's 100 pounds right there) <-- if right on the edge
Dyno with O2 logging <-- So Sean and I can tinker with things

The goal was to break the 10.90's, I'm right there knocking on the door once the weather cools off. But once the trans got hot, I was struggling to make the 11.30's. Best sixty foot was a 2.60x.
