Finally took the car out. updated new fast time
Well guys we finally were able to take the car out today for test and tune. First runs since getting the motor back from Lem and Bob. We had to wait a little because we had to get some bigger front runners because the car sits so low the pan and headers were hitting the ground. First pass out the car goes left right after leaving the line. Running a 3200 leave chip. Dad brings the car back into the groove and it runs a 6.901 100.34. Second pass we put a 4800 leave chip in and the car leaves the best I have ever seen it leave. Runs a 6.69 at 104.21. Very nice pass and really straight. The biggest problem we were facing was as soon and in the lights and on the transbrake the car would completely stumble so best light off 500 pro tree was a .635. We go back and put the stop on the car and put in a 3600 leave chip since I am getting ready to run 1/4 in a few weeks and leaving at 4800 was just to high. I get in the car and put it into the lights again it stumbles and than comes up on the chip. I leave and it darts again to the left hard. I lift and get back on it and go into high gear and there is no high gear. I get back to trailer put up on jackstands and we check fluid, cable and theres nothing. So we load her up and head home. Sucks because I was not able to make a full pass on this thing. And still do not understand the darting to the left on the low chip leaves but pretty darn straight on the high chip. Were get the tranny pulled out and get her ready to race in Atlanta here in a month. I will say we can see the extra power though. The 60 ft on the first pass was a 1.472 and last year in Bowling Green with same leave chip (3200)it was having 1.56 or 1.57. So it feels like its going to be one bad ride. But does anyone have any idea for the pulling left problems with the low chips?
1993 Mustang LX 466 CI with Kaase CJ heads. Just hoping to make a full pass. Best time 6.32 110 mph.
