Default Engine running Video

Started up after Oil pressure issues. Hope to have them all resolved.. Pickup was about 1/8" from pan now 3/8" from pan and happy with 65psi on startup and drops to 45 at 150* but now when I touch the throttle pressure jumps up to 65+ .. Now that the headers our out the front and have removed the vortex cone mufflers this thing is loud.. Should have it buttoned up for this weekend to race..
Having issue uploading video>>>will try again later sorry

Well gydyup there are 2 sides to everystory and I question mark face to face about the bad rap and he explained every one of there stories.. Any way I have posted a best ET to date 5.86 at 118.6 MPH in the 1/8 in a 2900# race ready car, after suspension adjustments. I was hitting the tire way to hard on the launch so move the instant center out to 46" and 11.3" off the ground. My best time was with a fuel pump issue. New mechanical fuel pump from Rons racing and hope to be out again on the 21st of June. My son is home from college and is turning 19 and he will give it a go off of a trans brake..

Note previous IC was 31" and 10.8 off the ground and it would crush the side walls by atleast half.. tried playing with the double adjustables AFCO big guns and just was on the edge to much..

Thanks guys for all the help

Oh yeah

Thats why I asked, you read stuff on the net, and if you dont ask a first hander then its just that. Great stuff, keep it up.

I have found some of then net stuff is a good indicator, if nothing else to ask more questions, e.g. my experience with MPG. Not good. Others seem to love him.

Default New Best for the COUPE

Finally got the 60' under control with a best of 1.26 running a 5.859 at 116MPH lifting in the box also bumped shift point up from 6700 to 7000rpm. I was also able to roll the car across the scale at MIR the car now weighs 2800 with me in it ready to race. To get the 60' I had to tighten the rebound on my shocks from 26 to 22 from stiff and the compression seems to be doing well at 10 from stiff. Next time out will be at VMP Virginia for the Raiders series the first weekend in August. I have now finally bumped timing up to 36* from 32* for next time out at VMP and I am hoping for 1.25 and high 5.70s at 117+
Thanks for looking.

Chris
