Does the whole run seem right or am I falling/Gaining in any particular place?

by the way this is my best run on motor so far

r/t .651
60' 1.713
330 5.251
1/8 8.230
mph 83.38
1000 10.772
1/4 12.933
mph 107.44

I was consistently in the 13.0's and on the
last two runs I went 12.95 and 12.93
I cant wait to open the juicebombs

I think your 1/8th and 1/4 e.t's correspond, but your 1/8th and 1/4 mph's don't correspond. Your 1/8th mile mph seems low. I would have you going 85.xx in the 1/8th if you are going 107 in the quarter. Then again, with the power you are putting down, I would expect you to be going at least 110 in the quarter. Is the car heavy or something?

like 11 sec LX says the speed in the 1/8 doesn't correlate with the 1/4 mile mph. also i believe that you are driving is not that good... with your 60 foot times and mph at the 1/4 you should be running at least 12.6-7 and the problem is before 1/8mile, you should be doing 8.0-1 in the 1/8mile IMHO

you might be shifting 3rd too late or too soon, would not hurt to experiment with shift points.

I dont know if I can pick up my driving much, I was powershifting pretty hard
The cars weighs 3250 without me and I weigh about 270 so 3500+


with my power @ 5200 rpm
what should I shift at?
I am shifting at 6000rpm

I'd powershift it at 57-5800 and see what happens. Considering your race weight the car is running well

Like tached93gt said, lower shift points may help. IF, your peak power is at 5200, you may wanna set your shift light around 5200-5300. This will have you hitting the gear about 5600, basically 400 rpms past peak power. My peak power was at 5400, and I set my shift light there (5400) and my power-shifts hit pretty close to 5800. I don't watch the tach and anticipate the shift light coming on, I just shift as soon as it lights up...

Looks fine to me, ET and MPH.

I run 7.78s 1/8th @87.5 MPH and 12.40 1/4 at 110.5 MPH with 1.68 60's.

dont forget that you race at Moroslow.......lol

actually we would have a pretty good race......my 60 ft times are almost identical to yours , however my 1/8th mile time is about 2 tenths faster and so is my 1/4 mile time.......I would probably say that the weight is what is holding you back from better times. Also , the good weather coming in will be good for a couple more tenths , ...........based on that timeslip and some better weather, the car probably has a 12.60 in it.


oh, and 6000 rpm is too high...........try 5600-5700
