Listen to Bear, the man is a legend and also let me add, it is said that wheelie's are a sign of lack of HP. I have found this to be true with my car. I have photos of my car doing giant wheel stands as carrying it out 20ft only to post a poor et. Upon investigation when I got back to the pits it was not getting full throttle. Some consider this an old wise tail by Gene Berg. But I feel I can still prove it. With that being said my car is way old school set up.BEAR said:new disc might slow you down
IMO there is a trick to doing the the snap the the clutch thing for a 2nd gear burn out. it's all in shocking the tires also you want to make sure you are in fully engaged in gear this video shows how I do it.superdrag said:I understand what you guys are saying. As I said, my E.T.s were getting faster. And I have heard of many cases when people going to some kind of clutch management system have gone faster with it. I basically have a form of clutch management now! But it is now at a point where I am even having trouble mustering a 2nd gear burnout, and my sixty foots are going away. I am very surprised that I am not slipping in 4th.
That photo scream out "must sleep before race day..." - we've all had that feeling! Car is looking brilliant Eric.superdrag said:DON'T BE STUPID!
4.12. I started out with a 3.88, but switched to a 4.12 to try and shed some E.T. in the 1/8th. My time slips didn't change AT ALL. My next box will be a 3.88 again. Still running a stock 3.78/2.06. 3rd is 1.56, 4th is 1.22. My engine is done at 7000 rpm.JC Quick said:what R&P are you runing
I would imagine that would feel pretty good... I;m looking forward to that day myself!superdrag said:And I now have the fuel drained, car stuck in the corner, battery tender on, and cover put on. My only plans this winter are to paint the fenders and MAYBE swap out the ring and pinion. I would love to squeak out an 11 next year. It's nice not to have much of a winter list, last fall my list was.................EVERYTHING.
Eric, I might have a set of 48IDA's, all done up, for sale in about 1-2 months, can come up with a price by then. :th_DragRacer:superdrag said:4.12.
