I broke into the 11's :D

Before this my best run was 12.29 @ 118 mph. This was with a ~2.2 60'.

I had a 7.5" with 2.73's and an open diff. I swapped in an 8.8" with 3.27's and a limitied slip (out of a Mark VII). While I had the alxe out of the way, I welded up my torque boxes.

I made nine runs last night with a best of 11.92 @ 118.5 mph! I also clicked off a couple low 1.9 60' times.

I'm still running some old 225-55-16's on the back.

When I launch, the front of the car rises and the car takes off...then the rear end is unloaded. I've got adjustable struts up front (Strange) but stock suspension in the rear. I bought some 3 way Comps for the rear and coil overs.

I'll have video in a few days.






I know I've said this already, but I'm having so much freakin' fun with this car right now. I'm amazed the axle swap netted a ~.25 second 60' gain.

I guess I'm rambling...

have a good day!

Check your shock travel in the back. If the back shocks run out of travell they will unload the rear tires. You could also be hitting a torque peak that is just blowing the tires off. Street tire compounds never work well on a dragstrip.

Keep chipping away at it. That's half the fun ain't it? Before you know it it'll be in the 10's....

SWEET!

I can tell that you are just having a BALL with this car. Makes all the previous work and bumps in the road all worth while :!:
