I am getting hooked on pulling the front wheels, Car was running strong, Ran a best of 6.31@107 in 2500 foot of air.

Sorry about the shaky video, my buddy wasn't very proficient with the camera,

Here is a rearend view, Looks like I am coming mighty close to using all the travel in those shocks.This was a 1.36 sixty foot.

Good video's. The more you zoom the more it shakes. I keep telling sue. :- You have a lot of separation. O:) Is that normal for leaf spring? I was thinking the shocks were too long cause they bottomed out when you first pulled up.

For a caltrac/leafspring car, they like alot of separation. The problem I had before was not enough separation. The shock was topping out and unloading the tires with the front wheels in the air. Old shocks had 4.5 inches of travel, new shocks had about 7 inches.

Good point on the zoom, I didn't think about that.

Very nice launch 410posi. Do you have double adj. front shocks on this nova? if so, you may want to add some clicks to the compression and slow down that bounce when you touch back down. Just an idea....
Got it running pretty darn good too! \:D/

Thanks, I was pretty happy with it, actually got some really good pics too, actually had a photographer that would take multiply pictures. I figure its carrying them out about 50 feet.

I have single adjustables up front, I was noticing from video on how much it bounced. It doesn't seem to effect consistency for the total run, and no indication of tire spin when it does it. I do think it plays with the sixty foot time, as the sixties will be different but the 330s line up.

Should have some better air in about a month, will be shooting for that elusive 5.9x slip. I think I will be close, just hope I have enough to get there.

Its funny like that, you get content,with what you have and then you get in good air and really want to see how fast you can go.
