    New best's for the v6!

    All geared up for nitrous

    26 X 10.5 X 16 et streets
    NGK TR6 plugs gapped at 0.035 - nitrous plugs
    1/2 tank of gas

    Friday night..... fuel solenoid would click 2-3 times and then activate. I tried everything to get it to eliminate the clicking (aka stuttering) but I could not get rid of it. It was enhough of a sputter to cause nitrous damage so I ran N/A the next day.

    The nitrous plugs and et streets are not the best for me N/A. I run a dedicated N/A plug (Champion copper gapped at 0.060) and BF drags 255 50 16's.

    Times as follows:

    r/t.....041
    60......1.752 --- new best!!!
    330.....5.472
    1/8.....8.646 --- new best!!!
    mph.....77.26
    1000....11.399
    1/4.....13.746 --- new best!!!
    mph.....95.83

    This was done with a 2,500 stalled launch, front drag shocks to 1 (all loose), rear drag shocks to 10, skinnies at 50 psi, et streets at 28 psi

    HOTNESS! New best!

    r/t.....053
    60......1.821
    330.....5.537
    1/8.....8.704
    mph.....77.53 --- new best !!!
    1000....11.445
    1/4.....13.778
    mph.....96.38 --- new best!!!

    Same drag shock setting, raised the rpm launch to 2800 and I spun a bit (maybe 2-3 hops?) skinnies tire psi 45, et street tire psi 27

    r/t.....047
    60......1.935
    330.....5.663
    1/8.....8.854
    mph.....77.41
    1000....11.608
    1/4.....13.950
    mph.....96.03

    3200 stalled launch, spun bad and wicked wheel hop!! Rear drag shocks were set at 9 instead of 10, tire psi the same

    dial in.13.71
    r/t.....149
    60......1.766
    330.....5.502
    1/8.....8.691
    mph.....76.92
    1000....11.456
    1/4.....13.814
    mph.....95.37

    2500 stalled launch, drag shocks the same, skinny tire psi to 45, et street psi 26 chirped the tires

    Curb weight - 2848 --- new best!
    Race weight - 3060 1st run and 3050 end of day.

    So, new best 60 ft, 1/4 mile ET, 1/4 mile MPH, 1/8 ET, 1/8 mph and curb weight!

    Done on et streets and nitrous plugs..... wonder what would happen w/ bf drags and N/A plugs [Smile]

    Weather was gorgeous!

    Nice thing to think about..... whatever I run N/A.... I have typically run 2 seconds quicker on nitrous.

    I know the bird has a 13.6 in it N/A.... maybe I get there before the end of the season.

    I will need a mickey thompson et DRAG for nitrous runs.... the 60's will be silly!
    nitrous et & mph: 12.168 spinning, 110.95 mph
    n/a et & mph: 13.746, 96.38 mph
    Best 60 ft w/ et streets 1.584 spinning!

    That's insane! Great N/A times James! 13.7 N/A without major engine work?

    You HAVE to get to the track with a few nitrous runs before the season is done! Ours up here ended about a month ago, how long do you guys have left? Good work!
