What Am I Doing Wrong? No Traction
I've had a few frustrating trips to track recently and I'm looking for some help. Best 60' out of 20 passes over the last 6 or 7 months has been 1.70 but it's usually 1.90-2.0. It has hooked twice but unfortunately the clocks malfunctioned and I didn't get a time slip. Until the last outing, I ran MT 275/60-15 S/S drag radials. I mounted 28/9.0 Pro Bracket Radials for the last trip. Same outcome. Tried short burnouts and John Force burnouts. Doesn't seem to make a difference.
Breakdown of the suspension:
Mega Bite Jr. in the bottom hole
Jegs NA tubular uppers with poly bushings
Viking Crusader DA rear shocks
90/10 Lakewood NA struts
Eibach drag springs with rear air bag
No aftermarket ARB-only the factory rear sway bar
No front sway bar
-3 degrees on the pinion
Haven't scaled the car in a few years but used to be 3420 with driver. Probably a little nose heavy with all of the accessories intact (AC, PS, etc) plus the blower and snow meth. Battery mounted in back and some weight reduction with a tubular K-member and the big and little Welds. Anti squat is calculated at 144%.
I'm a one man show so no exterior video of the rear tires at launch but the data logs show unloading almost as soon as I hit the gas. Stiffest shock setting was 12C/5R. I've tried looser settings all the way until full loose. In hind sight, I probably should have gone stiffer but I thought 12 compression was pretty tight. The two unknown time hooking 60' passes were on the street drag radials with old, wore out Lakewood 50/50 drag shocks.
Not looking to set any records but would like to enjoy going to the track. Running mid to low 10's but trapping 137. Want to start throwing some timing at it but I can't even use the power I have now. Help me make this thing hook!
