Well finally got to the track today with Rob.

Without nitrous I ran 11.92 @ 113.98. And with the .028 jet ran 11.56 @ 117.52

Killed the limiter 1-2 and 2-3... Trans went out so I didn't get to make another pass. Didn't bring the lap top to tune the shift points either...

Oh it was 70°+ out too...

Thats doing good! Looks like the E85 and nitrous works pretty well on the blower.

Congratulations! :thumbsup:

What do you mean "killed the limiter"?

I thought you guys built that trans bullet proof... :confused:

After talking chatting with Justin it dawned on me he said input shaft, but I have had issues with pump shaft sticking out break on higher mileage trans and ill bet a dollar that's what happen, hard to get shift points right on the street, this car will go 11.70 on blower with a little tweaking

Awesome Rob. I can't wait to finish the mods on mine and get some numbers on the set-up.

What tires is Ricky running?

Killed the limiter means due to the 40 or so extra HP from the nitrous. The shift points need to be commanded earlier. The 1-2 shift hit the limiter 3-4 time then the 2-3 hit another 4-5 times lol.

Defiantly would have run 11.40 if I could have got it right. I will try again before stepping up another 15 HP with the nitrous.

M/T's out back.

TM your car is going to fly with E85. I picked up 4mph and around .30's

Nice!

I'll take 4 MPH and 3 tenths!

Rob and I have been talking about tires. I'll definitely pick up some M/T's before Summer Blast in July. Rob's been on me to get a lighter tire and more sidewall...

My Nitto's are starting to show their age - time to upgrade anyway...

Meh, I've got a few things in the works. Just wait until I get my runs in on E85 before you count me out.

There will come a time though when I'm willing to concede to faster cars without dropping the coin it takes to "step up my game" to stay faster than they are. It's not going to hurt my feelings in the least.
If you or anyone else wants to strip your car to the bone or drop the kind of money it takes to go faster than I'm going now knock yourselves out and I wish you the best! :zbeer:
