Post  5pointslow on November 1st 2018, 6:35 am

i feel going through the traps at 6800 rpm was to much
felt from after 6500 the power was not there any more or wasnt pulling any harder

i have 4.10 gear

shifted at 6400
transbrake was 4400

may look at going to a 29 inch tire or shifting earlier

i will be slowing up to run 10.00 index

Awesome !!
Epping, i would guess? Did they give you a "talking to" or do you already have a license and chassis cert? Embarassed
The change to a 29" tire should get you down to around 6500, hot weather will bring it down even more. Good job. Cool

Don't restrict the intake side ... use whatever needed header collector reducers for the limiting factor.

You should go though the 1/4 mile traps at about 400 to 500 RPM higher than the preferred shift point; looks good.

Post  5pointslow on November 2nd 2018, 11:09 am

thanks guys felt good

only concern i have if my rear tires are hoosiers stiff sidewall 28x10.5 and there 3 piece holeshots with rim screws ....slicks no tubes left pit made pass at 12lbs back to pit they are at 9-10 lbs , usually if anything you gain tire pressure

So i have to look into it see if i have a leak at the seam

Thanks guys

currently 649hp at 2880
using vp113
with just a breather tank

if i go to q16 , and a vaccum pump i really wonder if i could get into the 9.50 index class at my local track instead of slowing all the way to 10.50 index


whats your guys thoughts on my time slip ?

my convertor flashes at 5200 and i launched the 9.77 at 4200 off transbrake ....i know i need to go higher on launch

Keep testing with higher RPM launches to see if you can improve on those times. You are much closer to 9.50 than going back down to 10.50!! LoL.

its going to be a long winter have the itch
would love to be able to run 9.50 index but i know to be be able to compete i would probly need to run 9.30s , and i cant see that happening without some big changes.

may try a non stiff sidewall slick at some point

was tossing idea of a tfs mafia intake vs my viktor , but not sure i would gain and dont want to spend that if i gained nothing
