Be careful of those rear axles, they can break easier than you think, same with differentails.

First off buddy, watch your tone. If you can not follow forum rules you can/will get an infraction from either myself or Mjr. But you did downsize it some so thank you.

And I will as soon as I get a chance tonight.

Mike, thanks!

Tinman, If I break 1 axle...I will be ok because I have another to replace it. If I break something in the diff..I have an extra one of those and a low milage 3.31 gear set, install kit and friction modifier ready for it

I am not going to go out and just dumb the clutch on the launch though nor and I am gonna power shift into 2nd..maybe 3rd but it will most likely cause me to miss it. This trans does need a rebuild but it works just fine on the street....4th gear..yea its getting shifted as hard as possible lol. Mainly because I know I can do it to 4th.

Well good thing is, nothing broke and everything went pretty well. I only got 2 runs in because of some delays but its ok.

First run was on my 275/40/17 sumitomos. launched easy in 1st, short shifted into 2nd at around 4k and smoked 2nd gear having to back out of it a little and short shifted into 3rd.

2.319 60ft
9.204 1/8th at 82.78
13.930 at 105.23

Second run I used the MT Slicks at 15 PSI. I spun them over in the box, moved out of it and ATTEMPTED to smoke the slicks to warm them up BUT the were sticky enough to over power my brakes ( didn't dump the clutch at a high enough RPM) so I rolled forward as I was spinning them. Launched at 3k and matted it....hooked up good, snatched 2nd, 3rd and 4th. A little wobbly on the big end but all is good.

1.833 60ft
8.410 1/8th at 83.69
13.251 at 104.66

Was in the lanes to go a third time but the tree failed and we had to wait. They ended up shutting us down since it was after the 5pm shut down anyway. I was gonna launch it at 4k and get a better burn out before hand.

Gotta say I LOVE the slicks lol. That was my first run ever using slicks and other than the low RPM burnout it went pretty well.

My buddy ran a 12.3 with a trick flow top end and a 150 shot. on the way home I stuck with him from 30mph to 120 the whole way....a run before he decided to feed me the bottle and ran away from me when he noticed I was staying with him

Good times!! Can't wait to do it again
