All motor 11.3:1 427ci at 2950 lbs, 50/50 mix 93 and 112 octane:

Unfortunately I cut a weak .081 light to my opponents .038 yesterday and lost 1st round. I ran a 6.58 to his 6.63, I was peddling the last 100' and kept a tire on him, with a .0055 finish margin, just gave up too much at the tree.

So I took advantage of the 70 degree weather, 77% humidity.

I didn't touch a thing on the tune. 81 jets, about 34* timing, 4500 rpm against the t-brake, 12 lbs in the tires warm.

1.43 sixty foot (WOW!) new bests
6.49 1/8 new bests
105.8 mph

The car has actually gone 106.1 mph before, so the weather didn't really pick up the mph at all, but the sixty foot loved it!

Previous best was around [email protected] with a 1.47 sixty foot.

The car came up and pulled something like a 2 foot wheelie and felt like it carred for a good 30-40 feet or so.

I came back around about 30 minutes later and spun to a 1.45 sixty foot and [email protected] It felt like it shook the tires while the front wheels were in the air.

I had the front struts on full loose and the rear shocks on about 6.




My first pass of the day spun badly to 6.77 with a 1.58 sixty foot, next went 6.71 with a 1.51 sixty, took the mufflers off for 2nd round qualify and went [email protected] with a 1.49 sixty foot. First round elim went [email protected] with a 1.47 sixty (lifting).

I really hoped the car would be 6.60s or high 6.50s with the mufflers on yesterday. I guess I'm going to have to say F-it and just put some 3.5" bullets on it with turn downs just to kill a little noise, but save some weight.


So in short, better weather = more tq + Baseline ARB and LCA's = 1.43 sixty foot on motor!

Thanks to Baseline's ARB and LCAs, when the car made more power with the cooler air, the baseline components planted the tires!

I've got the pinion angle around -2 currently. I run Steeda double adjustable uppers with poly on the chassis side and stock rubber in the rear side, then baseline lowers solid on both ends.

I hardly even had to drive the car. Hit the t-brake, stomp the throttle and let her rip. Car came up nice and straight, set the wheels down 30 feet or so out, and went straight as an arrow. No violent launch, no getting crooked. Even earlier in the day when the track prep was bad and the car did spin, it never got squirrely, just went straight.
