You got that right...I'm thinking about trying a different one in mine,it feels like a turd off the line.The one in it came out of Keown's truck, it's about 600lbs. heavier than my car. Maybe a convertor will pick it up?? king

Thanks for the offer Nick , but I am going to run it this weekend and see what it does after doing some chassis tuning and kenny will adjust on it. I am about ready to put it up for the winter and aint changing it again. Laughing

Got in the 4 second club finally less than ideal pass, band aided up the wheelie bars and tightened the front struts. It got on the left wheelie bar hard but still made a dart to the right , the anti roll shaft has some slack in it , I can make excuses all day lol bottom line it ran a 4 with no google gas and I am happy.

I am not takin your comments the wrong way jon , but i got timing pulled out and tied the shocks and struts down so i could get ahold of the track. I have just ran into suspension issues since getting the converter closer. It will run low 80's in the heat if leaned on. I dont have nothing against nos i just dont need it . Very Happy

We made a suspension adjustment after having all winter to think about what the problem was and thought i would share . I started out not changing anything and as last year it blew the tires off right after the hit when we leaned on it.
To make a long story short i finally noticed replaying the videos frame by frame the suspesion was not hitting the tires hard at all after putting the c head engine in. I was thinking going from the p-51 engine to the c head engine this suspension is going to have to be calmed down.
What really happened is the extra weight of the c heads was above the center of gravity and anti squat line or what ever you call it and in turn was causing the suspension to squat instead of seperate. The p 51 heads also make so much torque at a lower rpm this had to weigh in on having to have the 4 link ic out so far with them to calm the car down .
So i moved the ic back a little for test n tune the other night and thats what it wanted and needs a little more it ran a 5.03 and 5.02 on plain methanol .

What was the 60ft on the 5.03 & 5.02 passes? Where did the shortened I/C end up at? How tight/loose is the rear shock extension & compression?

The 60 was 1.10 , i am not sure about the ic now have not mapped it out but was if i remember correctly 98" out and 2" high before i moved the top bars down one hole in the front. The shocks are on full loose now adjusted between passes so i plan on moving the top bars down another hole and setting the extension on mid setting to start with. The compression is on 6 half tight.

I felt like an idiot for not noticing it was not seperating i was focused on the wheelie bars causing the problem. If i put it on a full dose of m-5 or q16 it will pick up 2-3 mph and some 60 with the m-5 that should put it pretty solid in the 4's.

I just found it interesting how that weight ( c heads , drysump tank and pump ) effected the way the car acted. I figured the extra power would make up for the weight , but by watching it in slow motion it looks like it just rocks it back and squats the suspension more.

The old I/C being that long & low is probably why you were able to run the shock extension valving so super loose. And moving even a small amount of front weight around on a car can have some surprising results. Put a car on scales & take something small like a quart of oil & place it at various spots on the front of the car (or anywhere on the car for that matter) and look at the results. Adding/removing just a few pounds (like way out on the nose) can be an eye opener. Some guys run a little bigger front fuel cell than what they actually need to make a pass so they can ad/remove extra fuel volume to use it as adjustable nose ballast.

If the bottom 4-link bars are level with the ground, (or slightly downhill at the front), and the shock valving set/kept at about 1/2 it's range, then making a number of different I/C length changes at the track using just the top bar could give you some good "A-B-C" testing results to work from.
