The wife has been coughing her head off all week, so its inevitable I get it. Felt it comming on yesterday, more so today, still got off my *** and took the car out.
This is an 1/8th mile track I have run our 81 car at a year ago and had traction issues with it then. Well, I put some bigger rubber on the 69, M/T L8 compound, 31.25x 12.2 W, ran at 8.5 psi. 60' were all 1.41's............that sux lol. The car even with wheelspin is deadly consistant, went a 6.14, 6.12, 6.13 and a 6.12.
The last 2 runs were elim rounds, the 1st I had a horrible light (no crosstalk which I used to at my home track) but the guy broke out bad, I went a 6.13 on a 6.12, he had a full car on me and never dipped the front, horrible driving on his part, yeah for me. (no buy back anyway)
Next round dunno what happened, went 20 red and gave him a round, I went a 6.121 on a 6.12 dial so the car was not to blame just me.
Nothing broke, no drips, leaked the motor down when I got home it was still lukewarm and all cyls were 2-3%, no wird stuff in the oil sample I took. I have a buddy down here that is a Shaeffer oil dist and has been supplying me free 20-50 on his own dime and free oil analysis, what the hell.
Overall pleased, but the lack of a good 60' is aggrevating, the tire swap dropped my shift points down a good 300 rpm as I never touched the shift timer settings. Its trying, Ive got too much damn power to hook this slug right now. At least its consistant lol. Need to dig the practice tree out, been a year since I went to a bracket race.
I had too back the oil bypass down some as it was too high, I never got a chance to glance at it as this tracks shutdown is damn short, I still have a knot in my gut from trying to get it shut down.
I was the 2nd quickest car there, only outdone by a piperack running a mild 409 if you can believe that, he only ran 6.0's
Next outing will be at my home 1/4 mile track with a huge shutdown.
Vids up later.
