Interesting.. that's backwards it would seem.
But since you lost ALL of that time in the 60', kinda makes me wonder if it wasn't something else, like lack of traction, or some other variable..
One tenth in the 60' is usually STILL a tenth on the top end.o No:
loosing 5 MPH on top end is not from 60ft difference! Tom
it may have been sucking the foam onto the air cleaner.
I worked on the sealing hood problem all this past weekend,I took her out Sat. night to break in the system[check the seal was'nt melting,make sure it stayed in place,etc.etc.] for the first time since this all started back in April,when all I wanted to do was switch from my B4B to a TA SP1, I'm finally seeing the the results.
I am seeing the light at the end of the tunnel.
I've never felt the power as much as I do now,the car was never a slouch,I ran a 11.78 last Labor day at E- Town,then I had to dial in the 12's to stay in the competition[No Cage].
I'm confident if everything comes together she'll easily out do that time!
Everyone pray to the rain gods to stay away!! This weekend is Very important to Me,I gotta run some 11.50's or die trying!!:TU:
Carl, try one of these..o No:
:grin: 11:16 not to far away from that 10:99 already Carl. Do you think it will be well into 10s with some work and a cool day? Tom
I do not run an air cleaner at the track so the K&N top would not help. The air pan is the width of the stage 2 scoop away from the carb so there is no way it could have possibly sucked the foam into the carb. Once we get the CalTracs properly adjusted, the carb to open all the way and proper jetting, I am confident it will be a 10.90 car. The best part is that it runs on pump gas and it's just a sunday drive.........straight as an arrow and shifts itself. What more could you ask for?
