Yeah, from the MPH at the 1/8th, we had 10s if for sure with a better 60'. Still don't have that all worked out yet, but the converter helped a bit. Need better front breaks because we can't hold it back with the slicks and launch with the kind of boost we want to. Rhino will post some of his slips and you can see we are about even at the 1/8th and he ran a 10.6x on at least one pass. It's all theory though until I do it, so for now it's still a mid 11s car.

By the way, this is the single disk converter, it will be a while before the multi disk is ready.

Rhino looked at it this morning and doesn't think the tranny or TC took any damage. There are several holes in the block so it was a total failure. Not sure what that means at this point. May point us more toward the timing chain or it could just be a cascade of failures.

Rhino looked at the logs and it looks like all hell broke loose at about 103 MPH. Up to that point everything looked fine. He'll have to dig in some and see if he can figure out the order of events, but with samples every 1/10s he may not be able to figure much out.

Nothing much is going to happen until sometime next week.

Wow! This is not the news I wanted to see. I'm sure it's worse on your side. Sorry to here about the blow up. congrats on mid 11's though.

Congrats on the pass Derrick!

(with exception to the catastrophic engine failure)

Wishing you all the best on your rebuild and can't wait to see more updates.

Cheers on the sweet time slip though. No doubt you'll be in the 10's before this is over. No doubt in my mind

I will update the 1/8 mile thread next.

In the meantime I looked up some numbers.

0 - 60 in 2.47 seconds according to the 1/8 mile info.

Same web site has your 1/8 to 1/4 info. listed for a 11.26 @ 126

Damn Good for a BABY V6 3.6 L............

The EFR turbos are amazing...and your results even with the poor track prep show it.

Rhino will figure out what happened to the engine, but if the A/F ratio was good it had to be a internal part failure, and at that speed/RPM it only takes a small part failure to gernade all, but you accomplished a new world record!!!! And I agree on the 10's...it was there for sure.

All a learning process, and hope the turbos are fine. They are amazing compared to any other design we have ever used...and your shifts show how they dont have recovery lag either.

Let us know if we can help.

Yeah. I'll have to open it up but it looks like the rods couldn't hold the sustained 20-21 psi. I felt so bad but we have a better idea about limitations of the stock rods.

Nothing to feel bad about. We had fun, it ran well and we now know there are still some weak links in the system.

Yeah, that's the meltdown. Imagine what was going the mind of the guy in the Mustang. I wonder if he got oil all over his car? He was about 1-2 car lengths behind by the 1/8th and never pulled past until after the 1/4th.

He posted another video of me against a Challenger when I was on the street tires. Once I get decent traction I took off. That's the pass where I finally got to WOT at the very end.

It will probably be a day or two before they can start the diagnostics on the old motor. Should be ordering a new long block tomorrow. Definitely going to go with forged rods, but need to see what else failed to see where we go from there.

Is there any why you can see if there's a way to find a stronger chain also? Are you getting new or used block?

Don't think it is the strength of the chain that is the issue. Remember, this is just driving the valve train so adding HP doen't really add more pressure for that particular aspect of the motor. Instead, my thinking is the greater acceleration is leading to not enough oil where the system picks it up and supplies it to the hydralic tensioners. Aaron isn't convinced, but we haven't torn it down yet, so who knows.

Getting a used block to build. Looks like the LFXs are just as cheap as the LLTs, so that's good.

New motor is on its way. Rods will be going out for spec Monday. They'll start the tear down next week (couple of things came up and they couldn't start this week).
