and set a new PB, but not by much. 13.208 @ 104.93mph with a 2.013 60', air temp was ~75F with ~50% humidity. Yeah, I can't drive...need to get out to the strip more often and practice. Still had a ton of fun raping a Mustang GT, LS2 GTO, LS1 Camaro, and some poor soul in a pickup that ran a 16.8 (that was before the track officials figured out my car was not 'normal'). :twisted: For some reason I had trouble getting good burnouts going tonight which didn't help my short times at all...that was a first for me as I've always come home with the car caked in rubber. My tune is still far from perfect too. I think with some further tweaking and an improvement in my driving skills that the car has 12's in her with the 2.8 pulley. I just need to coax it out of her.

Anyone have thoughts on the following?

Tires: I run 26x10.50x16 MT ET drags at ~15psi...no tubes as far as I know. Does this pressure seem fine or should I go lower?
Shift points: I have my 1-2 shift set for 6k, 2-3 shift is set for 6300rpm. With the S1x cam and 105# CC springs I know I'd benefit from spinning higher, but is it a good idea with a 135k mile motor?

I used to run the same tires but I ran tubes.
With tubes I would run the tires at 12.5 PSI.

Congrats on the new PB's :beerchug: Nice.. :thumbup:

Hmm, it wouldn't hurt to lower the tire pressure then...probably start at 14psi then back it off each run. I have them marked with a grease pen so when I see those marks move or start loosing speed on the back half of the track I guess I'll know that I've gone too far. :lol: I'll probably raise the shifts to 6500rpm next time around too.

Thats a good run with the high 60' time.
The age of the motor should be fine to bump up the shift points, try that before pullying down.

Your 12 second run is all in your traction. Pull a low 1.9 60' an you're in the high 12's :beerchug:

20-22* KR free on 93oct with the 2.8 pulley. I run a ~95oct mixture at the track just as a precaution.

Of course, I won't be hitting 12's for a while now. See my 'A sad day' topic.
