Re: Using massive torque to improve 60' times
Best comparison I can make has been stated prior. Late in 2012, before I sold the '69, I made about 10 runs, 4-5 at Cecil and another 4-5 at Maple Grove. Traction had been a major problem with the 540 and how it was tuned, it either bit or hit the dr's so hard they just spun and car barely moved, mostly the later. Was suggested to me to try 2nd gear starts. That's how I made the last 9-10 runs with the car. 3.42 gears, starting in 2nd nets 3.42 x 1.48 = 5.06 / 2.48 = about a 2.04 rear axle equivalent if starting out in 1st. Converter was 10" XHD Low stall 2700-2900. ET's were 11.40-11.50 at 125-126 mph at race weight of 4070# with driver.
