Should have gone with the smaller wheels and tires.

Anyone interested in a almost new set of Nitto DR's

How much for your clutch set up?

What did your best runs clock in at?

Ran 11.90's with a small shot before the Mickeys and Kooks headers. THat was at 118.

Added the Full length headers and the short (fugly) tires and ran 12.10 at 115.3 off the juice.

Then I tried a .063 jet at 100% on the controller. The car went slower ET spinning through 3 gears and ran the 125 at the stripe LOL. It was ugly.

I needed to make some more passes to find out what it liked but that was the last pass for the night.
We got our results so it's on to the next deal for me.

Don't know the cost on the clutch. It's probably near 500 to 600

I'm heading to strip tomorrow night. Hopefully I will continue to improve my launch and get some good numbers.

I'll be keeping a eye on your progress in Hot Rod. Feel free to update us before it on the stands though.
Thanks for your input.

TC - I would be interested in your Drag Radials if you want to get rid of them.

The best time I had at the track was a 12.6 on the stock Pirelli's with a 2.2 60'. It was humid as hell that day and the track was not prepped. I am going back to the track this Saturday and the track will be prepped and it should be cooler with less humidity. My car dynoed at 518hp and 503tq to the wheels. I have G-Teched it and it did a 12.2 at 120, so of I can get close to that on the stock tires I will be happy but I am shooting for high 11's.

Speed,

I am checking into the cost of smaller wheels and tires over the next couple of days and will pm you by Friday if that's the direction I decide to go.

Nice car by the way, I've been watching your build, looks like everything so far has turned out great. Enjoy!!

Tune is fine, driver that needs the work. Dyno was at 470rwhp on a mustang dyno.

Still trying to get time slips up.
.1270 - reaction
2.0159 - 60ft

12.5728 - 1/4 et
115.10 - 1/4 mph


Are you power shifting or granny style?

Your run from the 8th to the 1/4 should be faster too.

FYI my LT/CAI l99 8th mile trap speed was 87.7 and I ran an 8.30.

From there you had 88.7 and ran an 8.26.

What happens after that? Your car with over 100 more rwhp only puts 2/10ths on mine.

I hope Im not coming off like a jag or anything, as I would really like to help you out. If I had one guess I would say your granny shifting. Leave the pedal to the floor through your shifts. Its kind of scary at first, but if you practice it, it will become natural when racing.

To be perfectly honest with you, I have believe that it's all in the driver. I'm keeping on the gas till just before I hit my rev limiter, off the gas til after shift then back on the gas. I have only been down the track three times.
I'm going tonight and hoping my times will get better with more time in the seat. If you have any suggestion (granny shifting) I'd love to give them a shot.

Before you go to the track tonight, practice some power shifting....its scary at first. Once your on the gas, dont let off for shifting. But if you are going to do that be sure to practice a few times on the street so you dont mess up at the track. My guess is that you are shifting pretty slow. You really shouldnt feel the car lug during shifts.


Also I would drop a few psi out of the rear tires to hook up a little better. Its not going to affect the run down the track.

Well I did a couple practice runs power shifting before I got to the track. I must admit I had some pretty tight cheeks.

I dump the clutch for burnout before the first run and my pedal sticks to the floor. After lifting it with my foot I stage and take off. Didn't want to shift into 2nd and when I tried 3rd pedal was on the floor again. I was so pissed I just stayed on it. Clutch smoked all the way down the track.Awesome smell by the way.

Let it cool down for about 45 mins, then ran by best time yet. 12.40@114.82 My clutch wasn't happy with me after my next 2 runs. Corvette guys kept telling me to slip the clutch off the line, I told them I wanted to get home. It's time for a upgrade - and more fun at the track. I'll break into 11's yet.

Not bad times but the corvette guys are right...slip that clutch off the line and make sure you change out that fluid when you get home...i bet it's pretty dark after that.

Nice runs TC!! I just got back from the track and I definately need some drag radials for next year. My 60' was always over 2 and traction is definately an issue. I was going to try and slip the clutch off the line but never really did it. I ended up with a 12.45 @ 117.5 mph with the stock tires. It was a test and tune tonight, so no track prep either. First run, someone about lost it and got close to hitting the guard rail. Time for some drag radials!!!
