The seven second run may not ever happen nor the 170mph in the 1/4 but got close for sure..
Made a few runs with it on Friday as I want to a track rental and did some tuning and made 2 back to back
runs of 8.11 @ 168 with it way way it was and then decided to swap the 4 hole tapered spacer out for the
open spacer and it picked up a ton.. Short times went from 1.16 to 1.14 and 1/8 mile et went from 5.20 at
134mph to 5.17 at 136mph and also ran an 8.08 at 169.96mph!!!!!! So close yet didn't get it.. :-
Air DA was 670 and track was ok and I say that cause I have seen it better. So plans are to go down to
Atco on Nov 5th to a T&T and gamblers race...Here's a pic from Friday....

Congrats Barry!! I see you are knocking on that door all right. =D> Dunno if that track at Atco will be any better in November?? :-k I think after tomorrow I'm probably done for the year unless we get some REAL good weather to change my mind.

On the spacer deal, kinda makes you wonder if it would like a taller one doesn't it? :-k

Yea Ken, Was thinking about a 2" one #-o ...Other thing is after vI swapped spacers with out doing anything with the jets
or tie wraps that I already had on there the EGT's were better balanced out O:) ...
That trip is going to be weather related if I go or not but it's usually 10* or more warmer down there.. =;

Do you have your hood scoop setup so you can do this without having to modify anything? :-k If so you could try that 4 holer on top of the open one since you already have it. I'd also have another open one along to try also. Maybe Ant has one you could borrow?

Shouldn't have stopped for a taylor ham,egg & cheese sandwich on the way to the track. 170 was there if not for the extra weight you were carrying in your belly :-& :-#

Congrats Barry!!! Soo close. I think you will get it before the end though. Staging could have been the difference. ;-)

Yea Steve should have went deep :-s ......


You know it was not even a goal to go in the sevens or the 170mph but it's so close it's now an issue that has to be broken =;

Always good to challenge yourself. Not deeper but shallower. ;-)

Nice to hear you got it running good. I'd call that 170 even if the slip doesn't. Anything over .5 rounds up. =;

Deeper would get me a seven second run but kind of wanted them all on the same ticket =; ...
