To alleviate that confusion, Brian Macy of Horsepower Connection showed us this cool display trick, where engine speed/rpm (bottom trace) and throttle position (top trace) are the only traces presented in the graph, and the numeric values for other vitals are followed below during playback of the run. Analyzing data this way clearly shows that after 60 feet, rpm and throttle position were erratic (to say the least) for the remainder of the run. More importantly, when sync'd with the coupe's 8.95 e.t. at 1,000 feet, the log shows KJ was completely off the gas at that point, and the car literally coasted the remaining 320 feet to the stripe.
