Another Personal Best at PBIR

We had a track rental on Saturday night, took my car out there for some more testing. Unfortunately I only got one pass due to rain.
I managed to get a good 60ft, but let off early to make sure I can brake. I was very pleased with the result, we are leaving alot on the table. Enough with the writing, here is the slip and a vid my buddy took from the stands.

Another buddy of mine has a better vid, Soon as I get it, I'll post it up.
I set the 2step at 4k and left at about 11psi.

Thanks!! I didn't log that run cause of the rush to get a pass before the rain came back. And the car feels like a freight train from the begining...lol but I think it really wakes up at the 300-330 mark.

Great times. Gives me hope for my setup. I went out two weeks ago on 18#. Car went 120mph in the 8th but couldn't get it to leave. I need a launch control.

thanks!! Thanks good 1/8th mile for 18#. I'm leaving at 11psi and after seeing a pic of mine launching, it could take more on the hit. I'm trying to get to 8.50s with this same tune, just playing with the launch psi and the 2step. Keep working at it, the first 330ft is the most important. I gotta say I never thought this F cammed 306 would dip into the 8s.

What gear is in your car? I do all 8th mile and been thinking of trying a 3.55. I've got 3.27's now with 28" tires.

I have 3.08s on it right now, it seems ok but I'm my shift light is turning on at the 1000ft mark so I'm getting a little slip. I didn't get to log this run but I need to go back to do some logging. I might have to switch to the 27s to reduce the slip. 3.55s will work better for 1/8th mile but you might get some traction problems on the line.

Yea my light comes on around 6900,7000. Its real bad if I shift to second early and dont run out first. It will pretty much slip instantly. Im just running a steet/strip 10" from bte. its way overpowered.

The 2 illegals they caught in the truck just got lucky I think, but the thought crossed my mind.

Just courious who spec'd your converter? Build boost pretty easily and not slip a lot? I just know we have pretty close combos so figured I'd ask who did yours. I'm leaving towards PTC.

Congrats again Alex. I dont get on here often but I see you guys talking gear ratios and converters. I have 3.55's in mine 137mph in the 1/8th=7000rpms and 7600 through the traps at 172. Theres a few calculators online that can tell you how much slip you have. 1/8th mile should be 15% or less and 1/4th should be under 7%.

I got my converter from FTI Comverters, they also built my glide. Alot of the big boy turbo guys run PTC, I've heard alot of good things abt them.

I wanted to log the run and see what I have but with the rain coming in, we just rushed to at least get one pass in. I think I could have ran a .60. There is def more left in it. I saw the pic of the car leaving the line and it looks like a stock mustang taking off...lol

Going to try leaving at 15-16psi on the next outing. I want to go TNT a couple of times before Bradenton.
