Looks good leaving, things went away right after this. I got 4 passes in last night and I'm still having traction problems. I bought a MSD 7531 this morning. I'm trying that next.
I'm far from an expert...and it's even been a while since I stayed at a Holiday Inn, but I did read the Doorslammers chassis book a while ago. (How's that for a disclaimer!?!?)Right after the frontend comes back down, it smokes the tires. It actually lost traction again about 80 to 100 feet out.
Thanks for the info. I've only got 8 passes on the car with this setup. I know there will be alot of testing with a small tire. It will take some time to get it straightened out.The car looks GREAT! 2 things...........The first is it looks like a lack of tire pressure in the rears. They are crushing that tire pretty good. The other sounds like the same problem I used to have, when the front end comes down it is unloading the rear when it porpoises and then you are spinning the tires. I have double adjustable shocks on the front and I have them set kind of loose on the extension but I keep them stiff on the rebound so the front end can't come down too quick. You probably don't have the stuff to do that on your car but it is something to think about. Adjustable suspension components are your friend.:yes:
He's running a Procharger F2.What power adder is on youcar? I do agree the tire looks like it could use more air.
I haven't heard that about the Hoosiers. That's good info. I ran M/T before and they lasted quite some time. Mostly street driving back then. Those suckers are expensive so, it sounds like the M/T's will be a better choice for me. I apprecitate the input.I just saw your post about the drag radials. I didn't see what you were running earlier. The Hoosiers work well but they have a softer sidewall than the M/T and they are going to wear out quicker. I put about 35-40 passes on my M/T 325s and they still worked great when I pulled them. I am going to a 275 radial class this year myself and running the 28" tall tire the same as the 325. I run 15 pounds in the 325s with a 3300 pound car and I expect to have to raise that with the 275s because of the smaller tire patch has to hold up the same weight so it will need more help.
You will get it figured out and that box is a good tool to help with your timing ramps at the beginning of the run.
