Looks like a good run but does it bounce off the front tires after it comes down?? Hard to tell but looked like it did...... :-k Barry

looked like a good pass. the player won't let me scroll in slow-mo or frame by frame but it looked like it spun the tires some. I guess that would be the 60% DOT.

Yes, the front does bounce off the tires

You need it to stop that bouncing. As it could be unloading the tire..Barry

I had trouble also, with not being able to slow mo or stop freezing, to see better. What I did see was a wheelie, that wastes energy that could be used better to propell car forward. If the wheelie carried it's self out to a smooth let down, it wouldn't be as bad. I really couldn't see well enough to say what the rear compresion or separation was, or if your distorting tires. It would really be helpful to your tuneing to get right and left sides and shot from rear. This would tell you difference in rt/lt compression or separation, any twisting due to torque loads and the rear shot will tell you if preloads or stactic weight is right. My best guess is that your instant center is a tad low, but if you could see the compression or separation in the rear, it woould make it an easyer guess. If you think about it, as soon as you extend the right front suspention to it's limit with out picking the tire up you have 100% weight transfer, any more lift is waste of power. Power that is there and could be used to propel car forward rather than up. This can really add up, because if you move the car forward faster on the start, after your stored energy is spent, you are making more RPMs that usually puts you in a better part of your torque curve, eliminating some of the catch up time right after the car settels down.

Thanks everyone for your input. I wish I knew another way to download videos besides e mailing them.Rt now my front shocks are set on loose as far as damping and comp (there is only one knob to adj both comp and rebound) Would tighting them up help?

Hi Jerry
I was able to watch the video ok, after a minute or so of loading up
Nice pass, you must be making some decent power with that engine
