My fire wall won't let me see the pic, I will keep trying
Charlie, I'm not worried , they have pills to fix that problem now a days, :lol:
Thanks 8 liter, I know how it was, I tried to talk to everyone, but I am sure I missed a bunch of people.
Ray, your right It's faster with the fronts down, but on my best pass I ran a 1.43 short time, I thought it hooked , but when we watched the video the tires still turned 5 or 6 times before the car moved, and I could feel the rear moving around bad under me. and also at the 1-2 shift
I sound like I am complaining , but I am quit pleased. It ran a 6.34 @110 and some change off the trailer on a new car first time on the track.
Stiil has a lean miss, I talked to Phillip Oakley and the Quick fuel rep about it and Phillip said he would help me with it. It would only rev to 6600 on a pass with out missing, when I carried it to 7000 the car would slow up a tenth. The last pass of the night I fattened the carb up three in the front and rear, and it responded almost 2 mph but wouldn't 60 ft but still ran a 6.36
Tires are 4 or 5 year old 12. 5 x 28 ET Streets, I bought to use to build the car. The tires have deep wear dots but I think they are dry and hard. I will have new 28x10.5 slicks when I go back to the track.
Your right Damon did get it up, but did you notice he didn't know what do do with it . :shock:
x2 P.s. Guys ,
For the ones that couldn't make it, I truely hate that you missed this, I met some wonderfull people made a ton of new friends. This was an unbelievable gathering of wonderful people. I can't wait till next year.
