why cant i hook??? please help!
Went back to the track tonight after doing Team Z relocated uppers. Made 11 passes. All of which were pretty terrible. 60s between 1.8-2.0. Most of them in the mid 1.8 range. Best time to date was before the uppers, one pass out of eight that went 11.88 @ 116 with a 1.74 60'. The rest of my passes that night were also in the 1.8-1.9 range.
This is with a Hoosier QTP 26x9.5 on a 15. 170 lb hypercoil coil overs in the front, C spring in the back. Strange adjustables front and rear. Tried playing with them and ended up leaving the fronts at full loose and the rears at 3 from full loose. Pinion angle set to -1.3 degrees. Started with tires aired at 16 and lowered them to 13. Skinnies up front. Maximum Motorsports HD weight jacker LCAs.
Launching off two step was an epic fail. Tried 5500, then 5k, then 4500, then 4k, then went all the way down to 3200 and it still just blows first off. Tried launching around 3000r's with out the two step and minimal throttle. Tried sidestepping, tried just dumping and also tried slowly dumping and no luck. Car weighs about 2800lbs with me in it. Nothing too crazy, stock bottom end, trick flow heads, fti cam, track heat intake.
I wish there was someone local who could help me set this thing up or something. Its driving me nuts, my buddy has his two step set to 5k and sidesteps the clutch and dead hooks with eibach drag springs and lakewoods struts and shocks. Track prep is definately part of it but if other people are hooking than what the heck. Im running out of ideas/patience!! lol
I hope Dave Z chimes in here, every time i try to call its usually past normal hours. Somebody school me on ride height/instant center, etc!
