Just got back from the 1/8 mile drags

I ran my Grabber Blue 2010 tonight at Piedmont 1/8 mile drag strip. My mods are Justin's 2.65 pulley and tune and Nitto 555R DR's.

My best ET was 7.67 with a 2.01- 60' and a huge 97.52 MPH !!! for my mods. The cars that were running that MPH with good 60' times were running 6.9X to 7.0's.

At this point I am not adding any more power adders until I get the suspension right.

I had a blast. Only Made three runs and got the dreaded 1-2 grind on one of the three.

 

I still have the stock plugs in the car. I need to change them out.

if it was as cold there as itis here (ATL), the denser air helps alot

7.67? That's equivalent to running high 11.90s to 12 flat in the 1/4 mile. Good job.

 

Thanks.

I think that run would have netted me an 11.6 or maybe even better @ around 123.50 MPH based on this time slip in the 1/4.

I had a horrible 60' of 2.0 last night.

When I ran the 11.96, I had a 1.895.

 

1/4 Mile ET: 11.960

1/4 Mile MPH: 120.440

1/8 Mile ET: 7.808

1/8 Mile MPH: 94.000

0-60 Foot ET: 1.895

VBOX 60-130 MPH: 0.000

Standing 1 Mile MPH: 0.000

Temperature F: 88.0

Density Altitude (DA): 2242 feet

Timeslip Scan:

VBOX Graph:

Car Make: Ford

Car Model: Mustang Shelby-GT500

Car Type:

Car Year: 2010

 

IN that run I picked up 26 MPH from the 1/8 to the 1/4.

This time I ran 97.52 MPH in the 1/8. If you add 26 MPH to that 1/8 (and the DA was much much better last night( I would have been knocking on a 124 MPH 1/4 mile with 1.5 hr worth of work in my garage.

Only mods are Justin's 2.65 Pulley and tune and crappy Nittos.

I am really amazed what a small amount of tune can do.]

With a 1.5 60' I could have run this car against the Pro stockers when I was 17 years old!!

 

Got to get the suspension right and a good set of weekend drag strip tires.

 

I started this craziness in 1967 and I can't shake the Jones.
