Hate to be critical guy, but your lack of attention detail is probabily 90% of the cars problem.
Hard to get to the root of the tuning problem when you dance around it and take the long hard route with
"politician spin" (half truths, bad facts, spin on data, etc)

I hope you take this in the constructive manor, it is intended.

One looks like 89.15MPh and 100.33 mph (1000 ft) 107 in the 1/4"
If I 'am reading that right:

This indicates the car is dieing progressively as it goes down the track
starting at or just before trhe 1/8th point and gets progressively worse.
power loss.

Once clear shows you let off the gas before the end.
To get a valid accurate MPH at the strip you must keep your foot on the gas 66 feet after the finish line.
Or you will get a low inacurate MPH.
The MPH tells the horsepower. The track is much like a dyno test but requires consistant driving.
The more time slips the better. Post only your data, not the other lane..

the car has the potential to run 113.32 mph. once corrected and will
run faster and quicker when you get BIGGER better carbs, mufflers etc.
easy 11's @115-117MPH when fixed up.
I agree with the inconsistencies. I realized after my last track time that I need to forget about the reaction time and concentrate on being consistent with how I launch, shift etc. You’re right about letting off, did that before I was through the traps. Have only made 9 runs after a 47 year absence so have a lot to learn. My main concern at this time was getting an idea of what needs to be done to get the engine to perform which I have now thanks to the suggestions made by you and the other guys. Oh yes! I know you meant it as constructive.
