598 notchback first pass!

Post  NITROUS FORD on October 19th 2017, 11:45 pm

well fellas finally took my 93 notchback coupe out yesterday for its first passes and boy do I have lot to learn Shocked
track announcer said time trials were from 5:30 to 8:30. and when I finally got up there to get my run in he also announced that I would only be able to get one pass in for the night Evil or Very Mad so I had my brother-in law with me who never been to the track and help on my car! and close friend who been with me plenty of times but acted like he forgot everything I told him to do for me when they call my lane! Rolling Eyes its a bbf 598 motorsport heads that's been ported and polished int 2.300and ext 1.88 valves in it. 13;86:1 COMP TRICKFLOW A460 INT SINGLE 1250 INDUCTION SOLUTION SINGLE FOGGER ON IT WITH A 350 PILL SITTING IN IT! did not use the fogger last night just wanted to make first passes on motor alone! well it kind went like this, burnout wasn't that good, should of did it longer. first time using transbrake Shocked that was fun to use, will be using that a lot! slicks are old, and converter is real tight (nitrous converter 4400). don't think it even got that high on the transbrake off the line! all in all I had a blast! I let go of trans button and it spun right on the hit! 60' was terrible 1.826 330' 4.968 660' 7.618 89.72mph 1000' 10.303 and 1320' 13.084 73.10mph Crying or Very sad man all I got say is once the motor got passed the 60' it came on so strong that it scared the %$&*@# out of me so bad I got out of it, let it coast to the 330' and got back in it hard, and why did I do that What a Face this thing broke the tires lose while I was still rolling 80-90mph and the power came on again like a ape ass! I just let roll threw to the end and ran a 13.084 at 73.10mph! felt like I was going 30mph at the end of the track but it was 73.10mph:shock: got back to the truck and trailer and everybody came over to me who I did'nt even know and said they love the car and how it sound and ran, I didn't like the pass myself, but I know I need more seat time and bigger balls Laughing everybody also thought I turn on the nitrous on that pass the way it sounded! these bbf are the bomb! all in all love the info on this site only get it from you guys no were else! will be buying new slicks for next year to solve that problem!
Laughing thanks to all you guys on this site and give your input which I respect to the highest! o yea I had 12.5 lbs of air in the slicks!
