New best

Post  6jeff6 on October 17th 2015, 10:23 pm

Well got a 10.4, 1.4 60 foot with a ton of pedaling . I'm happy but would kill for a straight launch without chasing it til 3rd but it's fun just wish I had more time. I tried bumping timing to 38 and it just spun and spun everytime no matter what I tried. But new best has made it worth the trip.

Good Job, Keep up the good work, Cool
I did my personal best a few weeks ago and I haven't been out in about 18 months, I ran 9.20 and that is without any tuning. Cool

Glad you got some good numbers. How the hell did you get a 1.4 pedaling it?

9.20 nice!
In video it looks like it launches good but it just slides. I launch around 3 grand hammer it let off go back into it getting 2nd slide again pedal some more then grab 3rd and she straightens out. I went all the way down to 10psi to get the 1.4 but I think that's too low once it unloads so I will go back to 14-16psi is where it felt best. I also get terrible chatter at the line (tires trying to stick I think). I never once was able to full power it, well I tried but it just tried to over rev when she spun so I just shifted for traction haha I think that was a 10.6 at 128 mph run. Only got 5 runs and one at 38 degrees timing before a chev literally exploded all the way down to end the day and I 1.4 60 foot but then she just spun sideways bad. My 5 runs were: 1.522 60 10.569 @ 128.55 off trailer 1.471 60 10.67@125 spinning 1.487 60 ft 10.493 @ 128.87 1.493 60 ft 11.304 @111.59 me almost meeting wall after bumping timing up then last run 1.562 60 ft 10.607@128.64 timing still 38 but spinning and tried shifting for traction. Last 2 were really wild rides

Put a bag in it, or a stronger rear anti roll system to keep both rears down...

No problem man. It's got lakewood drag shocks and springs with full out adjustments on them (long threaded piece in center of them)to adjust stiffness of spring I'm guessing, also brace that connects to pumpkin (carrier bearings I think)

So I would loosen that center of.spring adjustment so there's more give until it hits the stopping plate or tighten it for less travel?
