That rolling spin (that still tries to lift the nose of the car) kinda looks like what the 70 Ranchero I had did with a "too soft" Firestone compound. They would get big & deep feathers/ruts/ocean waves all across the tread surface. The compound was so soft that the track surface had no problem ripping the tread surface loose from the slick & rolling it up. Kinda like trying to hook the car while needle roller bearings are stuck to the slicks. :lol:

MIke Duffy wheeled by as I was loading it up and commented the tires were ripped up pretty good, he asked if I rotated them and I said it had been about 10 runs since. I think the tires are some of the issue.

The runs were 9.60, 9.59, 9.59 and a 9.57, all the diff was in the 60' as it was strugging to grip. Thats a bracket car Nick, I get it sorted out it will print slips like a copy machine lol. I did bomb the brakes at the stirpe as the piperack didnt catch me.

My junk would run 8's in the lightweight 70 model :lol:

I need to get my no torque smallblock car back together for these hot months.

With the track that hot, try 25-27 degrees timing and see what happens, wont cost anything and just a few min. time. Really helps mine.

I know I can tune it to help, but I pretty much made my mind up to get the smallblock car done and start working on a 2 speed.

The c/4 rocks, its just not the right set up for me.

Anybody in the market for a kick *** C4 pm me lol.

Was my worst light of the day, I got a bit rattled when the dick took his sweet time getting up there and then demaded I pull my dial board down for me to show him when there there are those real nice lighted boards you see there at the back of the starting line. It common courtesy but my board is damn near impossible for me too reach behind the net all strapped in.

Next time its middle finger lets get it on phucker.............. :twisted:

Its a deal where when your in the right lane you cant see the other guys dial in. Used to be you had to look at the scoreboard if no one was there to tell or show you. No big deal other than I had issues last year when the sun was down seeing those numbers (yeah the old is seting in lol) They put these new led boards up and now its easy too see.

Its a matter of getting the numbers in the box.

I'll never knock heads up racing, I just dont have the dough to compete. But being a good braket racer is somthing that is not easy to come by.
