8th mile looks correct, trap is pretty high for a 14.3

The clock must have been off. There is no way you are trapping 108 with those mods. Based on your 60' the clock was off as well. If you ran a 14.3 @108 your 60' would've been around a 2.6-2.8.

With those mods there is no way he had a 108 mph trap speed! It should be more like 98 mph.

Clock is most likely off, he layed down 27mph from the 1/8 to the 1/4 that is turbo car status. For example the Black Widow which is a wild all motor setup traps 96mph on the 1/8 and 116 on the 1/4 that is just an 20mph gap.
