I saw this over on the triple forum where I'm a member.
Here's quote from the thread
I believe Mike Bianco's 8.65 puts him in the top 5 ever on a H2, gas only.
Dave Schultz, Mike Puglia and Randy Anderson are the only ones from the old times that I know of. Ebos has done 8.60 I believe and Bird/Baxter of course have the record. Any other better than 8.65?
It still amazes me as to how fast the 1st to 2nd to 3rd auto shifts are, and then the idea that the 3rd to 4th and 4th to 5th shifts have to be so lazy, in order to keep Mr. Transmission happy.
