  • Re: The List: Whatcha Bringin' and What Class ya Runnin'?

    Hey Joey, yep I will be at the ohio mile (with the evo yet again). The goal is to actually make it the full mile no matter how slow as long as it is under it's own power,
    Are you going to bring the vette?
    What are you racing at drag week, seems like you might be racing something else. As far as car snobery goes I hope it is as you say, that would be great. That is one of the reasons I have been doing the standing mile events, the people are great.
    Yeah its that way, if you have troubles its will be hard to work on your car because everyone will want to help. And dont mind what we do and say to Eddie, we like him. Its just fun to pull his hair like the girl in 3rd grade, we squeals like one too.

          For Ohio I changed the computer operating system for faster switching on/off nitrous for better power. I'm also going to drag radials so now 100mph+ slides.

          For drag week I'll just be in a 2001 GMC rcsb with a pt88 and stock bottom end/heads 5.3. Its got ac and is comfy

            Shawn Wolter.........white 91 talon. Great car. Been mid 13X's mph in the 1/4 with it so far. Was on a fussy E-85 tune, and never really could get the short times worked out. I wish he had more time to spend at the track. I think with the boost turned up to around 40lbs that thing has a very bottom 10 or even a high 9 in it.

            From time to time, he will let me drive it................2nd is fun, but 3rd is where its at!!!
            I don't know if I've met him or not I have shyte for memory.
            Third gear is deffinately the money gear on low to mid hp DSM's.
            Fussy e-85 tune, if you can't tune e-85 you need to quit as it has the larest tuning window, just short of methanol.

              I don't remember exactly what the issue was with the E-85 but if my memory serves me, it was more of a software deal, and idle control. It runs pretty well under power, but seemed to get real fussy down around idle. He would know alot more than I do. Where are you located?

                                  Street race sb/pa

                                  My first drag week in 2010 I ran the present combo n/a and averaged 10.90 for the week and finished without a hiccup.. Since then I've hooked up the nitrous and gotten the chassis certed and got my comp license so I'll be running the car to its potential this year. With 150 spraying it's been 9.70@137 leaving soft with the progressive. I'll be starting with a 200 hit when I get out this year and hoping to get it into the 9.50 range.

                                    Such a cool car! Couldn't help but notice the bigger hood scoop.

                                    As I'm looking at similar change from SR BB/NA to SR BB/PA with spray, are you starting the progressive at the hit at some level or bringing it after launch?

                                      The 9.70 was on a .1 delay with 150 coming in at 30% and ramping to 100% over 2 seconds. It was going down the track every time on that so I used that to make my license passes and I'll get more into it this season.

                                        So that bridged the 1st to 2nd upshift? I keep thinking it'll cause an issue with the shift but your exampke makes me more confident. No way to know until I try it.

                                          Josh B's SB/PA Mustang.

                                          Cleveland-headed small block, C6, 4.56 cogs and a healthy shot of N20 (NOS Big Shot kit).


                                          I got sick of looking at it covered in dust in the garage, so I pulled it out and washed it this morning. Even with 30ish year old paint, the thing looks pretty decent. We're still waiting on pistons so Mike C. can do his thing with the engine.
