Real race Fuel unlocks Power gains

Yeah race fuel would pep mine right up. If I ever spray it I'll be running it. I don't want to advance the timing right now on cheap gas.
Your going to need to expirement next time at the strip.
After MPH Trap speeds that means HP gains.
A clean hard hookup should equate to high 11s.
Its going to get Summertime Hot Soon.
Pump gas and heat dont mix very well.
Maybe start off with water coolant temps staged at 120-140F.
End of run 160-200F.
An electric fan on a switch will help. Can mount in front of radiator and use as a pusher.
Plenty of room on 2nd gen birds with no AC Condenser.
I myself would use a 160 F T-stat or Use a Moroso water restrrictor plate. Red or Blue. 3/4 - 1.00 inch hole.
Water restrictor plate more reliable than any T-stat.
Accuracy in metered water flow guaranteed.
Probably 1.00 inch because your in Arizona.
If you leave the water restrictor plate in on the street monitor water temps and change oil often.
On street I myself have seen steady 140-180F water temps after 10 minutes run time and drive time.
What matters is matching water temps in each cylinder head , combustion chamber, & type of gasoline used.
What can be done dirt cheap for now.

I blew off all my dates with the serious people. There's to many bandaids holding the car together.

When you do the list thing they count on you to be there, not just once. I was a shoe in but I know they can't depend on me to be there.

Found a chunk missing out of my mini spool last night. Never ending. Shocked to find out it had a 1 year warranty. Had 10 days left on it.

It held up Ok because a Mini Spool is not supposed to be used past 300 - 350 HP.
They used to recommend using a Mini Spool only Dirt Track Racing.

First legit test with nothing more than water in the stock gas tank put it into the 12s but I was still pedaling it on motor.

the next FREE move would be to let some air out of the air shocks and lower the tire pressure

on spray I'm sure I'll have to get a little more drastic but I haven't sprayed it yet.

The ultimate plan of attack is mid 11s on motor so I don't have to cage it and spray of the streets. I really don't have any reason to be any quicker.

Yeah once the house is paid off I can get serious. Should be able to do another 15 years standing on my head.

I don't have a rollover valve in my fuel cell either. I'll be getting that handled while I'm doing this fuel system upgrade. Fairly certain the old setup wasn't letting to motor reach it's full potential.

Yes. Ok Garry.
Enough already, I agree. The car's really just a hell raiser. I take it to the track because I'm limited on places to raise it out here in the desert.

I pulled the Victor and spray off the car & put the factory hood back on. Right now I'm screwing around with a little bodywork.

I'm running air shocks on the back right now so I don't eat the tires with the inner fenderwell lip. I need to cut it for clearance.

Think I found the problem.

Let me guess, this is your car at launch:



When really, it should be doing this:




You need to call Calvert Racing and get a set of their traction bars.  And get rid of the air shocks and get some adjustable ones.

Little girls squat when they pee.  Your car needs to stand tall  :lol:
Yeah I've been noticing everyone & their mothers are running the Caltracs. I got a set of those and the split monos but I've got a few other things to do before I bring the car back out.  It sits like the red one now. The springs I took out were totally trashed.
