Here are some videos we took from the past 2 weekend, 3 are from the bracket series running mid 6's and 3 are from the open comp running 6 teens. We are going toget some other camera angles next time out. This car runs so straight down the track. We tried one pass late at night it is the last video were we left with everything it had but spun the tires some and the 60 went down from 1.34 to a 1.38

D&D 2in primary longtubes 3 1/2 collector with bullets slip fitted on the collector nothing speacial just wanted to quite it down a little makes it easier to here the valvetrain and takes away some of the vibration.

What MPH were you going?

We were going around 108-109 for the mid 6's and around 112-113 for the low 6 passes. Hopefully I will get some 1/4 mile shots soon. I got a mount to put on my helmet and I wanted to put one on the side of the car looking at the rear tires.

Videos 1-3 are leaving at 3000 and shifting at 6000 and 3/4 throttle carrying 100lbs
Videos 4-5 are leaving at 4200 and shifting at 6800 full throttle #4 carrying 150 lbs the last 2 no weight.
video 5 was leaving at 5200 shifting at 6800 the 60 went down on this pass we spun a little.

Also figured out that the converter is to loose in high gear I was definately turning 7000K at the 1/8 with a 4.30 gear. Talked to FTI and they said to pull it out and they would reflash it to tighten it at the top some what do you guys think tighten at the top or leave it alone?

That TC does appear to be a bit loose.  I'm not qualified to make the judgment if you would get a better ET by tightening it up.  Sorry.  I'm learning so much from this forum and I thank you, sir and everyone else.

Here is the mph/rpm numbers from that formula.  I entered in your 28" tire size, your 4.30:1 rear gear and your final transmission gear of 1:1 --





I guess that is what they call "driving through your TC"?

Wouldn't tightening it hurt your 60' launch?

Good now that you got a little fix get to work on your ride so you can get the rush behind the wheel.
Just keep plugging away at it and you will be kicking ass and taking names again.
