Friday nights track results
Finally got to the 1/4 mile friday evening. I'm pleased with the results but I still think the car will/should be quicker. Still footbraking, launching off idle, I ran a best of 11.36 @ 117.9 mph with a 1.57 60ft time. My new tires hook alot better, good enough that another problem has arisen. I marked the rim and tire, and noticed after the first pass that the rim had spun inside the tire about an inch, same for each pass. Only got three passes in, there was a bunch of cars, motorcycles, junior dragsters, and some guys trying to get their NHRA licenses, plus the occaisional "cleanup". The 1st pass was an 11.52 made a late 1-2 shift, 3rd pass was an 11.43 had a crappy burnout and my 60ft went to a 1.62. Gonna try to take some weight out of the car and change to a 4.10 gear, was only trapping at 5800 with the 3.73's.
Anything else I could try? How much could I stand to gain with a transbrake?
