I am happy that I don't get any more starter kick-back if I spin the engine for a couple of seconds and then turn on the plugs.

Thank you!

BTW -- those times were my first time ever racing at a track.

And they were on some 27" Nittos with the front sway bar attached.  I feel that the Merc is better with the M/T 29.5 DR and with no sway bar ...



Next time which will be soon will be some PB's!      Wink

Even though I've heard (?) that the cooler it is the more oxygen to burn but the sticky tires don't grip as well?

5. Tuner = Owner  Smiley

The track will have decent grip once it gets some heat in it on cool nights.  The more cars with slicks the better it'll get.  Usually my best 60ft and ET are my last pass at Irwindale on Thursday nights.

Well don't laugh (oh go ahead!) this morning the Merc kicked-back pretty fierce on the starter after I thought that I had it under control.  I gave it a pre-spin touch of the gas pedal and it did NOT like that.

So I am having to install that Digital 6-Plus after all before I wreck my starter and/or flexplate.

Well that's good for you and for me.  You'll have some nice new tech on your ride and I don't have to be tempted to buy it off you.

Hey Robert,
I know you're heading down the caltrac route now, but are you still interested in some pics of my 4-link install?  I found the prints last weekend.  I'll scan some if so.

Art Morrison has some nice front end stuff too if you want to get ride of those damn shock towers Smiley

Yes, please.  I can weld -- the problem is just finding the time to do it.

Not to knock your supurb welding skills but you cant weld to the level of installing a 4 link kit. Certian welds are best left to professionals especially when they pose a chase of you getting killed or killing someone else is involved.

I think you should keep this strictly as a results thread and continue the rambling in the other one 


Robert cold engines want fuel. maybe you should try a carb with a choke on it?
