UPDATE.. TRIP to the track.
Thanks for all the HELP from the 460 forum page. I was able to successfully get my 86 coupe down the track with only miner issues (front Line lock not holding and spinning hard when the night time air set in.
First pass off the trailer was 6.27 at 109 shifting at 5500.. leaving off of foot brake.. (shake down pass for straightness and stopping)
second pass left on Tbrake at 4300 to see what it could hold. Spun but went straight and of course the clocks did not work.. NO TIME.. but I was able to stay infront of 6.0 car.
Retry second pass.. Left line lock on after burn out but lowered launch to 3400 no spin but pulled to center lane because it was dragging left front wheel... 1.41 60ft lifted and motored down the track.
Third time run was on a pass but missed shift so only went 6.47 with a 1.40..
NOTE I am running a 9" night mare heads up (.400 pro tree) class (6.50 index) 1/8th mile.
First round of elims. I had a 1.37 60ft no spin and I raced the finish line lifting 2 time and dumping hard on the top end. 6.36 to his 6.35 run out. WIN
Second round elims. Race the class points leader. .070 light to his .086 raced the finish line. hit the brake with him and fed him the strip on top end 6.467 to his 6.409 break out... WIN
Third round SEMI's.. Bad light spinning hard peddling through the 60ft cought him and passed him by half track lifted twice to bring him in and fed him the strip 6.52 to his 6.58.. my light .161 to his .060..
First time out very pleased with everything and now just have to adjust suspension some, do to spinning at night.. I believe there are some 5.90's in the 1/8th carb is lean and suspension needs a little adjustment..
Any advice on QA1 single adjustable shock setting and rear four link bars heigth from ground.. I have multiple adjustment points on the rear but stock location on chassis..
