beat my best 60ft and 1/8th mile

http://s787.photobucket.com/albums/y...hrisbechtel01/.
title should read i beat my own best 60ft and 1/8th mile. i am definately not calling out peeps with this weak shit. the purpse of this thread is trying to identify that something is wrong with the e/t vs the hp.

car makes 400 rwhp and i the weight with me in it is 3380.

is this typical of a supercharged car to not really start making the power till the second half of a quarter cause the car will do 115 in the 1/4 mile

dude, i hope there was something wrong with your car.

i ran just a couple of tenths slower than you in the 1/8th with a factory stock long block 4.6 2v n/a at 3,600 lbs race weight. 1.79 60ft. is my best short time on dot slicks. and that's just with the 4.30s. usual bolt ons, exhaust, tune, 3,800 stall, and slicks.

my new frpp 4.56s and new girdle are getting installed this friday. i put down around 250 to the wheels on hpp's dyno. and i'll be heading back out to north star probably the following friday. i actually like to race you. it'd be fun to beat a lighter 400 whp car with a heavier 250 whp car.

i guess what im saying is the car traps 115 in quarter and im thinking 88 89 miles an hr in the eight is kinda low? is that norm and the car makes up the rest at the end of a quarter mile track or is it still me and i need to keep tweeking?

well the thread was suppose to read I beat my own best which in its self is still not impressive.

guys bottom line : do i need to take this thing to the shop that has done all my work show them the time slips and go from there? ?

what do ya'll recommend i say that is reasonable? is it possible to have a car that the dyno shows to be 400 rwhp but the power curve be bad so that the car isnt making power the full length of the track

with your weight and power the mph is about right maybe a tad low, do you have control arms, shocks,subframes,etc., just keep going at it no need to get upset

appreciate it. where were you last night, i really will let u run it so i can emilinate me as the culprit (or possibly verify me as the culprit)

i have upper and lowers that are non adjustable.
i do not have sub frames
and i have stock shocks/ struts that ive never replaced since ive had the car and are most likely the oringinl ones that came on the car 170,000 miles ago. (body miles. motor is fresh)

We are at the same weight and power level. I trap 93mph and cut a 1.6. I couldnt get out of the 8's on Mickey thompson drag radials cause I was cutting shit 60ft's. I went to the softer sidewll 26X11.50X17 old school ET streets and started cutting 1.60 60ft's and got 7.60's.

1/8th mile racing is deceiving i have beat a lot of cars in the 1/8th that would kill me in the 1/4. I have beat C6 Vettes in my Honda, had it been a 1/4 mile track they would have flown around me.

1fastvipper cant read. what a douche. if you are on a laptop, use the touch pad to arrow over to the scroll bar on the right side of your screen.

then, with your left index finger click and hold the left mouse button on the scroll bar and use your right index finger to drag that bar all the way to the top.

now go get a friend or family member thats near by and have them read the very first post to you so you can catch up.

just goes to show you, money cant buy brains. its cool

Sounds like you need more time behind the wheel to me. I'm definitely not a pro, but if you know the power it makes, and are expecting a better time from a car that makes that kind of power, it seems like the driver is where the problem is. Of course, tires and suspension mods would help drop that 60ft time.

Sure about that? Willing to put money on it? The 4.56s are going in this weekend and I have a few other things to button up. We can plan for something the following weekend or the next.


Anyways....since you asked. I picked out an interesting old timeslip of mine for you to look at. That is if you are wanting something for the sake of comparison. As you will be able to easily see by my trap speed that I was down on power nosing over on the big end. This particular timeslip was a weak pass running on 7 cylinders. Damaged plug for some odd reason on cylinder #8 that was discovered after the fact.

My car weighs 3,585 lbs. with me in it. The tune I was running on this pass was my SCT 87 octane performance tune with +1 degree of timing added between 2k - 4K rpm. Ignore the R/T. It was a solo pass and I was fooling around trying to load up the converter to see how it would respond. And all it did was slow down my 60 ft.'s, such as in this particular case.

Keep all that in mind when you look at this timeslip, especially the short time.

Mustangman - That's really not a good comparison. You're trapping like 8 mph less than him and make much less power. Your car runs about what it should.

Buffalo - what rear gear are you running? At that weight and power level you should be in the 7's. Keep practicing. On slicks you should be able to get that 60' time down in the 1.6/1.7 range. Plus, it's still hot outside. The cool fall temps will help with your supercharged car.

Congrats on the new best. Just keep working at it.

I'm not trying to put you and your car down, but IMO, you should have a much better 60ft time. Just for a comparison, I am running 1.72-1.76 60ft times, 8.50ís 1/8 mile at 84 MPH, 3450 pounds race weight, 5 speed, 3.73 gears, 26x8.5 slicks, sub-frame connectors, stock suspension and I have much less HP than you (approx 250 rwhp).

I have a couple questions for you. I didn't see it listed in this thread, but what gears you are running? What rpm are you launching at? Are you spinning the tires or bogging? What RPM are you shifting at? What RPM and gear are you trapping at? Are you keep the car in its power band (do you have a dyno graph)?

If you get the car out the hole and in its power band quicker and keep it there longer, you will pick up MPH.

If you can have someone video your car launching (up close and from behind) and going down the track it could be very beneficial.

Good luck!

1st off sorry for caps im at work

now we are talking guys. Thank you thank you thank you for good unbiased feed back. That s what im looking for . Numbers times stats suggestions to improve and get faster. I am running 4.10s and i dont know about the poweR band i have several dyno sheets. Probably 8 to 10 of them. Would it help to post those?
I am shifting at 6100 -6200 not entirely sure on. But im going to buy one of those cameras this week end that can be mounted in the car to watch the gAUge cluster or mounted outside for cool vids. I do have to go into foUrth gear and i'd like to keep the car capable of 1/4 miles. When i was shifting at 5900 to 6000 i was running out of gear and trapping at 6400 or 6500 and my bottom end is not built so i didnt care to continue doing that. Im lauching at 4000 to 4500 and not sure about wheel spin either. I would assume it is spinning some but not like the radials were. There is definately no bog for im not really feathering the clutch but more dumping it.

Keep this thread going so dip shits like me can learn to drive.

Mustang man, the only way i'd put money down is watch you do do a dyno pull right before. I'm not underminding your driving skills but with your power and numbers you are simply not going to make up enough to out run my car regardless of how horrible i am. Maybe a little n20 and your in business

Buffalo - what rear gear are you running? At that weight and power level you should be in the 7's. Keep practicing. On slicks you should be able to get that 60' time down in the 1.6/1.7 range. Plus, it's still hot outside. The cool fall temps will help with your supercharged car.

Congrats on the new best. Just keep working at it.

you just need more seat time. you'll get there. nobody starts out a pro. you're probably also not making clean shifts, which will improve with time.

you're kidding, right? seriously, i don't mean this as a insult, but i can tell you're a track newbie. and that timeslip i posted was not my best, just an example for you to look at. primarily for you to see the 60ft., which was also not my best. as you wanted a comparison.

we definitely need to schedule a race sometime at the track. no money. just for fun. my 4.56s are going in the car this weekend. we can plan something the following weekend or whenever it cools down a little. i'll be happy to give you a lesson in drag racing and to debunk your deluded idea that drag racing is all about how much horsepower you make. i think you'll be a tad bit surprised at the results.

i ran just a couple of tenths slower than you in the 1/8th with a factory stock long block 4.6 2v n/a at 3,600 lbs race weight. 1.79 60ft. is my best short time on dot slicks. and that's just with the 4.30s. usual bolt ons, exhaust, tune, 3,800 stall, and slicks.

my new frpp 4.56s and new girdle are getting installed this friday. i put down around 250 to the wheels on hpp's dyno. and i'll be heading back out to north star probably the following friday. i actually like to race you. it'd be fun to beat a lighter 400 whp car with a heavier 250 whp car.
This is a great example of how gears and a good suspension set up with slicks can out perform a car with much more HP, but nothing else.

My 03 GT with Kenne Bell 1.9L had 401/424 at the wheels, but stock rear end and ran a 12.8 @114. That's leaving the line at 800 rpm and rolling into it. If I tried to launch the car all it would do is sit and spin with street tires.

^Exactly.

My car is weak on HP as it's a n/a 4.6 2 valve, but I've focused my attention on other areas. Aluminum driveshaft, welded torque boxes, fully boxed control arms w/ poly bushings, sub frame connectors, $700 torque converter, lots of gear, and slicks. Car hooks up and is gone when the other guy is spinning. A lot of people concentrate solely on HP. That is only one of many aspects of drag racing.

Mustangman, i misunderstood that time slip as a reflection of what you are currently running. Sorry about that. I'm always down to run em. Not because i'm dead set on trying to prove something or anthing. But because i love getting out there and i'm humble enough to learn from you vets.
Come out to crandall friday to hang out and we'll run them. Eric 2vgt is heading out whom i've never met either so it shouldnt be akward or ne thing.
Also if gearheads will hurry, i just bought a 90 hatchback with 373's, aluminum drive shaft, upper and lowers, subframes, new centerforce, equal length headers, msd 6al, mass air, throttlebody (dont know sizes) victor 5.0 intake, cam (dont know specs) and brodixs heads.
Cant wait to find out what power to put down and to drive the car again. Maybe i'll run eric2vgt against my own vortech 2v.
Hopin for 300+ rwhp?

Ive driven it once for 10 miles or so and had it put in for the r and r of the motor.

No problem. It's all good. I'd like to make a few passes, but the car is getting worked on this weekend. Dropping it off after work on Friday. Maybe next time around.

Drop your air pressure down a bit. Do a good burnout. Try lowering your launch rpm from your usual. I think you might be over powering the tires and you don't have the suspension to compensate for it. A 60 ft. time on a timeslip reveals a lot. You've got an easy 7 second car. Improved launches and clean shifts, and you're there.

And I didn't see you mention it, but I can't emphasize enough how important it is to toss those stock control arms in the trash and put in some boxed poly bushing control arms. It's nice to do a burnout without wheel hop. And reducing binding and deflection will make a difference on your short times.

Ok, 4.10s is what I was looking for. Sounds like you just need more practice and maybe some suspension upgrades. I know you said you have rear upper/lower control arms. I'd also add springs/struts/shocks.

With 4.10 gears, slicks and 400 rwhp you should definitely be getting some 1.6/1.7 60' times and running in the 7's. I doubt your powerband has anything to do with it, especially with 4.10s. What tire pressure are you running the slicks at?

12 psi. Im going to buy strange shocks and struts this week and get some front runners and go at it. Try lowering launch rpm also on mustangman's advice.
Also mustang man, i do have upr upper and lowers.
