IMO…..if you’re gonna run the CJ intake manifold, it really needs cam’s to take advantage of it. I’m adding Comp Cams for next season, along with BMR K-Member and Aerospace Components drag brakes. Hope to have a consistent 10.8 bracket car. It’s a dedicated 1/4 mile car….it’s not driven on the...
Different wheel/tire set-up….saved 30lbs on rears and 8lbs on the front. We only got 3 runs, so won’t be able to play with air pressure until next season. They are lighter then the 305/45R17 ET Street R. I think I’m really gonna like the Hoosier’s.
Well, finally got our 10 sec pass(barely😂). Today was our last race for the year. We’ve got more goodies planned for this winter to hopefully put us in the 10.8’s consistently for next season.
Previous best was 11.006 with a 1.72 60’
Today was 10.991 with a 1.68 60’
Last season was our 1st year, my son was only 18 and had his drivers license for less then 1 year. He’d never been over 65mph when we went to the track for the 1st time. The plan all along for was him to drive the car once he became faster then me😂. I only got to make 6 passes in the car before...
Not yet, car is on jack stands at the moment….I’ll get pictures mid week….we race next Saturday. Wheels are very light, but also very spendy. $2900 to $3000 just for the wheels. Hopefully we see some results with them.
Here’s my thoughts on the shocks. They’re are so many variables with the cars and limited runs on race day, it’s pretty tough to find the perfect settings. For us being under 500whp, A10 with 3.55’s and footbraking the launch….we can be from 2 to 5 on compression and 7-9 on rebound and...
I decided to change wheel and tire set-up to reduce rotating weight. I was previously on Weld Belmont drag 17x10’s(MT ET StreetR,305/45R17) and 17x5(MT ET Street Front,27x6.00R17).
I switched to Billet Specialties 17x10(Hoosier 28x10.5R17) and Billet Specialties 18x5(MT ET Street Front...
Unfortunately, you’re right where you should be with the set-up you have. To break into the 11’s, you’re gonna need to add horsepower or take weight out of the car, preferably both. E85 is a nice power gain, but not always readily available in some area’s.
I haven’t done much testing with the shocks. I’m always in the 1.7’s with a best of 1.72 footbraking from 1200 to 1800 rpm. As far as tires go, I just purchased Hoosier drag radials(28x10.5R17) to run next season.
Weld Racing Belmont Drag
17x10 Single Beadlock on MT ET Street R 305/45R17
17x5 on MT Street Fronts(Radial) 27x6.00R17
Everything bought new this year. 40 passes at the track, zero street time. Paid $3600…..Selling for $2700.
