We Hit Our Goal !!...Got It On Video Too

It`s no secret that a cooler motor will make more power !
For you guys out there that have ever been 'burned down' you can relate to this video.

Back story goes like this:
Time is running out.
The air will never be anywhere near this again until late Fall down here.

Earlier, Jesse ran a new best 60' with a 1.29 Et but got out of the groove a little and the car drifted to the right so he wasn`t able to capitalize on it...

Ok...It`s our LAST run of the night the lanes are closing !
We get a dragster next to us and historically they take a bit more time on the line than the regular cars do but this guy was ridiculous.

Jesse is waiting, the temp is going up and he sees 185 on the gauge and he`s STILL waiting !
Finally..the other guy pulls up and they go !

The car ran a New Best : 9.26 @ 141.71 I`ll post the time slip soon.

Re: We Hit Our Goal !!...Got It On Video Too

I should have turned on the fan.It always runs it best with water temps 140-160 at 180 to 190 it typical slows down .05 to.07

what happened was it was the end of the night for the final pass Initially it hooked and then blew the tires off .
I came back around told him to lower the shocks I click.
We got back in line we never shut the car off .

So the 2nd attempt hot lapped and me forgetting to turn the fan on and the other driver taking forever to stage it left the line with the water temp just past 180.

Bounced like a basket ball when it came down to Im thinking it had a 9.18 9.19 in it

Re: We Hit Our Goal !!...Got It On Video Too

The air was good just not negative, DA was about +250 temps not cold around 65 to 68 humidity was 65 to 75% air density 98%

We missed the super air last Wednesday night at Orlando speed worlds test and tune had temps in the 40s humidity in the 40s
-1100 DA !!! at 10 PM air density was 103-104%!!!!!!

Would have been interesting to have been there and pulled off the heavy exhaust system,passenger seat ,rear seats and the center
console just run the enough fuel for a pass maybe 150lbs out and go for some 8s

I know I had at least 10 gallons in it when I pulled threw the gate.

I was considering turning up the vacuum pump up a bit and messing with the air bleeds,we ran out of time.


I really want to try some oxygenated fuel like MS109 David Vizard picked up 30 hp with that fuel on a pumpgas 496

Re: We Hit Our Goal !!...Got It On Video Too

Lets look at the numbers. 1320 divided by 141.71 = 9.31. Looks like your on the right side of the formula now, and not many are.......excellent work.

Why is it we never have time or money to do it the right way in the beginning but we always have time and money to do it over again?
