BG did not go as I had planned. Never made a clean pass. Here is the quick rundown.
Tnt Friday morning - Blew the tires off 2.04 60' and [email protected]
Rd 1 Qual Friday night - hooked so hard the crotch strap caught the seat adjuster and slide the side all the way back. Had to drive down the track slouched a little just to get the pedals clean. Shut it down going into forth because it was crazy lean...battery light on.... 1.406 60' 10.42 @115 - new rebuild alternator TOAST!!!!
Found a few spares from other racers and stuck one on. Started the car and it was charging and there was no unusual noises or rattles coming from the motor.
Rd 2 Qual Sat noonish - gave it too much on the line and spun a little 1.52 60" Car started breaking up in second - lean - lifted and tried again and same result. Abandoned the pass and the weekend at that point.
The alternator that I run is 220 A and the one on the car was likely 110-130 A. Just dont think there was enough there to support the setup and tune. Still hoping the motor is safe. Pulled the plugs and all looked good. Going to get the alternator issue straightened out and go from there. Very disappointing because the air was INCREDIBLE and the track was hooking HARD! I really think the weekend would have produced a 9.6x @ 140 if I did not have electrical issues.
Tim Holt was on a mission. Put his Kurgan tuned, E85, stock unported blower, stock irs, stock 6 speed in the tens with a 10.89 @ 127. The car was sixtying in the mid 1.5s.
Also pleased to see Jeremy Stewart take his vert to a new PB of 10.53 and backed it up in the first pass of TS with a 10.59. He was beaten out of the 11 sec class win with a 11.019 average to his 11.029 average of 3 passes.
