    new best

    Almost a year later, I'm finally back at the track. Car has been through a couple of changes. Here's the run down. SLP airlid, K/N filter, ASP under drive pulley w/overdrive alternator, no cats, Bassani tru-dual exhaust, Yank PY3400E, stock PCM tune, two stage n2o (75/150), FJO dual stage window switch, 3.73 gears, and M/T 26 x 10.50-16 ET Streets. Still can't break a 12 second pass on motor. Burned up #7 plug on the nitrous. The first nitrous pass was leaving on the 75 and having the 150 come on at 3500 RPMS. Blew off the tires and went 11.51 @ 119. The next pass, I set the 150 to come on at 3000 RPMS and after that, I turned the 75 on. Went 11.444 @ 119.85.

    Best NA - 13.245 @ 104.96 75/150 N2O - 11.444 @ 119.85 Made 4 runs.

    Do you have anything done to the suspension?

    A set of LCA's, Softer springs, Shocks and Some Sway bar trickery and you could get that 60ft in to the 1.5-1.6 range..

    Nice runs and good luck next Wed

    Are you running the sway bar loose or even removed? That seemed to help my car quite a bit. It allowed more weight transfer to the rear.

    I have pondered removing the tourque arm.. but ive been told that is a no no.. Still thinking about trying it anyway..

    Thanks and Good luck

    I forgot to mention that I remove both front and rear sway bars when at the track.

    i've pulled a 1.709 with both sway bars fully attached. if you remove the torque arm, what would keep it from rolling over on itself? that's what it's there for. it's to conteract the upward motion from the pinion gear trying to climb up the ring gear. this turns that motion into a dowward force onto the tires.
