  • Another Stude Drag Day March 5 2017

    Went to track yesterday March 5 , 2017 . Windy , with gusts to 35 or more. 73 degrees .

    Made 3 runs . Screwed up no 3 badly . Still , a good day overall .

    Run 1 is totally automatic . Seems to have gone through 2nd in a flash .

    Rt .278 , 1.939 , 9.093 @75.69 , 14.286 @ 94.27 Lost to a supercharged Mustang even though I had an almost .400 RT advantage. It ran 105.36 MPH

    Run 2 . Other guy ran 10.887 @ 127.29 MPH . I manually shifted .

    Rt .564 , 2.035 , 8.991 @ 76.70 , 14.141 @ 95.09

    Run 3

    RT .117 , 1.957 , 10.371 @ 66.90 , 16.698 . Totally screwed the shift up . Got off of the track as soon as possible . Discovered that I had tossed the alternator belt on the run . Wind made it difficult to do repair , as my flimsy front end was really racking around, when up . Loaded up and came home .

          Bill,
          Looks good especially run two. Your run two 60' time was about a tenth slower but 1/8th and 1/4 mile times are a tenth quicker and .144 quicker! So you would be around 1/8@8.85 and 1/4@13.94 with the 60' equal to the first run! This is really impressive!
          1/8th mile et is strong with the setup you have, what is the RPM at the 1/8th?
          Looks like your having a lot of fun.
