Every race car should have a name. I choose Nightmare for my cars name. When my son seen it he goes cool. I get it. Black Mustang. Mare is a horse. I just laughed and said nice guess. The reason I named the car that was because it's taken over 2 years to finish. Been in 3 different shops. And cost a lot more then it should have! It's finally done and ready to race. I'll probably launch it into the wall on the first pass.

Haha you should see the last builder cringe when I tell people why I named it that. But at least Kenny from Absolute finished what he started. The other shops either stole or broke as many things as they fixed! Should have some Motor runs on it this Friday.

Well it's been a long time coming and finally set to make some passes. Congratulations on sticking with it and seeing it through. Enjoy the rush of feeling out a new car at the track. Should be alot of fun dialing it in on your way to clicking off consistent 12.8's lol.

Seriously though, keep her off the wall. Can't wait for the video....

We took some major steps to keeping her out of the wall last week. We scaled all four corners of the car and set the suspension. It's with in 4 pounds of perfect weight on three corners. And 8 on the back corner. She should run straight on the first pass but we'll make the first pass a 2500rpm foot brake pass. If all goes well. we'll load up the transbrake and try a 5 grand launch.

3/26 first test & tune.
First pass. We left very conservatively off of the foot brake at 2000RPMs. Air pressure in the slicks was 12psi. [email protected] with a 1.7 sixty foot. Car went straight as an arrow! Glad that one was over!

Second conservative run. Left at 3000RPMs off of the foot brake. 1.7 sixty, 11.7 again.

3rd pass we let it rip off the line. Trans brake launch. 5500RPMs. lowered the air pressure in the slicks to 10psi. 1.308 sixty foot. [email protected] Get the car back to the trailer and notice that the gas peddle was fetching up. And apon farther inspection. The throttle cable wasn't adjusted properly. We were only running on about 50-60% throttle. Pretty impressive that the car was trapping 114-116 at half throttle!

They then shut the track down due to rain. Never got to run it again after we made a sizeable throttle cable adjustment. So all in all. We gathered some good data and made a few repairs. I don't want to say. I was disappointed. Because I expected a million adjustments the first time out. But wow a 1.3 sixty is like being shot out of a cannon.
Next outing should get some serious numbers.
