Here are some pictures from Sunday does the air pressure look good? Are there enough wrinkle?

Steve, from what I have learned it's not how much the sidewall is wrinkling it's more how much of the tire patch is wrinkling O:) O:)

Ok, I'll try...........If you look at the tire patch just above where it is in contact with the track it should be distorted a few inches in from the side wall....I think I have a picture of my Vega with it showing what Im talking about...

You have Morgans book??? It's in there somewhere I think......

I think I know what you are talking about. Some cars I see leave kind of leave a pattern. I see some cars that leave a pattern like I call a paddle. I guess it is from wadding the tires.

Scott,

Is the page you posted above from a book or magazine? Is something that is available?

Thanks,
Greg

According to what I saw last night, at 10 psig I'm still TOO LOW! And Scott, 8.5 lbs DIDN'T WORK.

It's looking like I need to go back to where I was two years ago as everything I've done to the car has slowed it down. Best it ran last night was a 5.67 on a track that I've run 5.40s on. You wouldn't believe the engine and driveshaft RPM graphs even on that best pass! Out of 5 passes, I only got down the track twice! Had to abort the first three runs, two with 8.5lbs and one at 10.5lbs. Last two passes were at 10psig but it was still a dog! 1.30 something short times ain't gonna get it! Hell, the Studebaker @ 3500lbs would do that good with a pump gas engine and a 150 shot of juice!
