Couple things to mention after trying to increase my times.
Steel flywheel, I know you road race and are partial to the aluminum but a steel flywheel will yield quicker 60ft and more consistent launch. Hopefully lower your launch rpm so that you don’t kill parts
Aluminum flywheel with a rxt, not disrespecting but your clutch combo and race weight you do not yield enough torque to muscle it from a dig. Hell even my 502 NA setup never did at 3800lbs(no driver) and single disk. You need to build a slipper clutch.
Slipper clutch can be done by means of a clutch tamer OR a regulator in your hydraulic system. A regulator that can go to 100% shut off is what you want. Wilwood only does 55%. Regulator really lets you dial your car in, especially for changes in weight, power, track conditions, tires, etc.
Drag radials at a 11’s or slower level with stick shifts are not your problem. A lot of people blame the tire but honestly my opinion is it will be something else.
I remember saying the same thing at drag week/race week and Most told me “you will be surprised at what it takes to get a 4100lbs car to run 12, 11, 10, & 9’s.”
502 big block
Stock looking, definitely not stock sounding
HP and ET not determined yet!
