At the track right now- with more video
 
Crummy times, first pass was a 13.64 followed by a 13.7x seems like if it nice and cool I get the mid/ low 13s but once it breaks 60 or so she does mid/high I did put 2 lbs in my rears after the first pass since I hooked real good ill make one more and if it sound any ill drop the 2 and see what happens I suppose

Explosive 05-01-2013 07:18 PM

Looking at my slips I lost it in my 60ft by a 10th so I'll still make this pass at the same psi but I don't thats where my issue is

Stone629 05-01-2013 07:19 PM

What are the weather conditions? How are your 60s?

Explosive 05-01-2013 07:58 PM

Sixty was a 2.0'aired up and started pulling 2.1's all passes @102 dropped the two lbs last pass and almost picked up a tenth temps were higher earlier but it's cooling rapidly my sixty is back to 2.0 after dropping the two lbs so I'll make this pass see what happens hoping for 13.5x I know I'm not touching 40's with the weather and this is the last pass of the nights lanes closing

numbers at top are my tire pressures i always put them on my slips when i lap back to the lanes and label the run.

Not terrible times. Try airing the tires down more. Runs we're consistant if thats any consolation.

I use this since I still have yet to find a nice DA app for my phone...

It's not really good for 'historical' like the dragtimes site is but when you are sitting there it's pretty useful.

I could try 28 but when I first started racing the car I aired them down too much and it was bogging the car and I couldn't get away from the high 13's so I usually try to run as much air in the back as I can without spinning. I did hear a little squeak on the runs so maybe I'll try going down a little more. I think it's just the weather, it was pretty chilly when I ran my best time and I wasn't hooking perfectly either

Yea it's all trial and error with the air pressure. My wife's SS likes 26 psi. 1.9 sixtys all day at that pressure. My old neon was good at about 30 PSI and getting 2.1 sixtys. Your 2.0 sixtys are solid.

S8ER01Z 05-02-2013 01:42 PM

Air pressure...I cant say I've ever adjusted mine for the track.

Explosive 05-02-2013 01:59 PM

Definitely makes a difference IMO. Pump up the fronts and find the sweet spot for your rears I try to run as much as I can get away with. Buddy emailed a few vids from the starting line I'll post them up tonight after work

Explosive 05-04-2013 04:49 AM

Had an incident working on the car thursday after work and had to make a 1:30am trip to the hospital but here it is


S8ER01Z 05-04-2013 10:49 PM

Trip to the hospital? Hope everything is alright.

Explosive 05-05-2013 12:02 AM

Yea everything's fine now,

Was spraying blood everywhere

S8ER01Z 05-06-2013 07:46 AM

Nice... as long as they got you all patched up. Hope your hand is feeling better now man.

Explosive 05-06-2013 03:24 PM

Hands healing good but the injection site from the tetanus is hot hoping that's not infected.....
