Update to my 1/8 mile time:
Unfortunately I cut a weak .081 light to my opponents .038 yesterday and lost 1st round. I ran a 6.58 to his 6.63, I was peddling the last 100' and kept a tire on him, with a .0055 finish margin, just gave up too much at the tree.
So I took advantage of the 70 degree weather, 77% humidity.
I didn't touch a thing on the tune. 81 jets, about 34* timing, 4500 rpm against the t-brake, 12 lbs in the tires warm.
1.43 sixty foot (WOW!) new bests
6.49 1/8 new bests
The car has actually gone 106.1 mph before, so the weather didn't really pick up the mph at all, but the sixty foot loved it!
Previous best was around [email protected]
with a 1.47 sixty foot.
The car came up and pulled something like a 2 foot wheelie and felt like it carred for a good 30-40 feet or so.
I came back around about 30 minutes later and spun to a 1.45 sixty foot and [email protected]
It felt like it shook the tires while the front wheels were in the air.
I had the front struts on full loose and the rear shocks on about 6.
My first pass of the day spun badly to 6.77 with a 1.58 sixty foot, next went 6.71 with a 1.51 sixty, took the mufflers off for 2nd round qualify and went [email protected]
with a 1.49 sixty foot. First round elim went [email protected]
with a 1.47 sixty (lifting).
I really hoped the car would be 6.60s or high 6.50s with the mufflers on yesterday. I guess I'm going to have to say F-it and just put some 3.5" bullets on it with turn downs just to kill a little noise, but save some weight.
So the new best is:
1.43 sixty foot
2950 is lbs weight, 70 degree weather, 77% humidity, 28x10.5 ET Drags, C4 auto.
