New best Saturday........

1.536 60ft
4.515 330ft
[email protected] 660ft
9.156 1000ft

3 step was broke so I had to leave against the convertor on the transbrake. I am also having traction issues. I have videos of the car launching from behind and the car leaves like its on a rail it just goes. I lifts the nose but I have the adjusters all the way down to get the ride height I want with 150# springs so I will try 130's and see if that will make a difference. Will also be looking for a 2 step if anyone has one

Got a 10, way to go You saying you have the front end sitting low? I'm about to put a tubular front end and coil overs on mine and I was told that the ride height may have to be a lil high with my 150's to get the best traction. Would a 130 let it sit lower and still hook good? I don't know squat about suspension


Scotty we need more power!!!

yeah the spring has no tension when the front end is fully extened so it doesnt keep the shocks from going back down.

Congrats on the 10 rex! That's great and will only keep getting better.

Swapping out my front 175's to a pair of 130's really woke up the launch even with the heavy ass windsor up front. With the 14" spring I have a pretty decent compression on them at rest and it really throws the front up when it leaves. I've even toyed with a lighter spring yet but it's working well so it's kinda fell off the priority list.

Well a quick update. Just watched the video of the passes. Alot of things came out...........

#1 Weight Transfer isnt as big of a problem as I thought it was..... Paused the video and took a pic.

#2 Car was spinning bad out of the hole.....Attribute that to not have a limiter and having to leave at 6k and hoosiers dont seem to hook as well at M/T's. Will pick up and install a new two step Saturday.

#3 Tires were unloading a little ways out.....Replaced 50/50 shochs with adjustable stranges should prevent this.

So hopefully with the new two step, new tires, and new shocks car should 60ft in the 1.4's.

Paused the video and shot this pic. This was in the non VHT'd lane.
