Psyco Diver 69 I need rep points!
Default Just got back from track

I finally got down to the track tonight, 41 degrees tonight, a little on the chilly side. Well anyways I got 4 runs in, could have gotten a 5th but it was a long time and would have tooken at least a hour to make one more. I got my best runs tonight.

Run #1 The car felt a little loose at about the 1/8 mile mark and fell alseep at the light. I launched soft
R/T .676 (perfect is .000)
60' 2.33
1/8 9.557
mph 75.6
1/4 14.846
mph 92.33

Run #2 Launched at about 1700rpm, spun a little
R/T .591
60' 2.310
1/8 9.505
mph 75.80
1/4 14.788
mph 92.49

Run #3 I got vaporlock on my fuel line and stalled during my burn out and then chugged through 1st gear. I know what happened, I got in the end of the one staging lane and then were moving so I idled the whole time up, when I got to the line I was at 200 degrees (I never go over 200 degrees, even with a flex fan)
R/T .635
60' 2.677
1/8 10.436
mph 71.82
1/4 15.952
mph 89.22

Run #4 launched at 2100-2200 rpms, she bit hard off the line, almost thought I broke something, it spun a little after a couple feet but gripped back up
R/T .133
60' 2.172
1/8 9.357
mph 75.94
1/4 14.625
mph 92.80

After 2 and a half years I finally broke out of my 2.3 60' barrier. I still got a little wheel spin but I finally beat 2.3. I think if I got one more try with a warmer track I would have gotten 14.5-14.4. I also did this with a full size spare, portable hydro jack, and tools. I ran my tires at 40 psi up front and 25 psi in the rear. I was shifting at 5500 rpms. Next time I go I'm taking out the passenger seat, back seat, all the junk in my trunk, and amybe disconnecting my front sway bar.

Looks like traction is still limited. Your MPH is staying consistent enough.

Maybe try some sticky tires and hit the low 14's.

3.73s and yes I'm still running street tires. Its not to bad for a 78 smog motor. Hopefully I can get my original motor done by spring or summer and aim for the 12s

Well I'm going back this friday and this time my friend is coming with his truck so I'm going to take all the junk in my trunk (full size spare, hydro jack, bunch of tools) and put them in his truck I'm going to mess with the tire pressures some more and this time I'm going to mess with the carb and timing. I might even unbolt my front sway bar to get a little more traction to the rear. Hopefully I can hit low 14s
