Most definitely was a lot of fun. We need to have some more local guys out there though :)

My car was set up with Interior removed (need all the weight help with my big butt) and exhaust removed. Everything else intact.
3.0 pulley, no additional timing added, 9" open cone in compartment (no cai/fwi) running race fuel, 63deg temps, nitto 555r tires @ 18psi

Track conditions were less than impressive. They sucked actually. I absolutely hate the damn tires. Hopefully will have some ET drags if someone can come through for me :wink:

My results were the following Saga.

1st run - botched. didn't pull 28 fuse, so couldn't get the burnout and launch was terrible. pulled off at 1/8.

run R/T 60' 330' 1/8 mph 1/4 mph
1 .870 2.347 6.205 10.011 54.5 20.45 39.58
2 .748 1.934 5.433 8.311 83.74 12.896 107.59
3 .853 2.039 5.670 8.575 83.91 13.584 82.58
4 .637 1.988 5.520 8.412 83.19 13.008 108.3
5 .697 2.077 5.769 8.664 86.42 13.247 108.89
6 .587 2.004 5.609 8.553 81.69 13.199 106.85
7 .708 1.892 5.388 8.255 84.01 12.811 107.86
8 .723 1.879 5.354 8.206 84.62 12.736 108.94

2nd run was after the fuse pulled. I was pretty happy with it, considering it was the first run in 3 months.

David's run with me had me nervous (run5) as afraid of his ZZP machine. I botched the launch, 60', and run. I suck. His car is running great and was fun to run him.

Run 7 and 8 I finally pulled my head back out of my ass and started getting back in the groove. Track conditions were terrible and I couldn't hook up at all. Even with the 1.879, I was spinning through 20-30' of it. I was feathering the throttle at the launch, but still was to aggressive.

Needless to say, I need practice on the 60'...i suck and admit it openly. I also need to start working on the tuning. Car was running PIG rich all night, started getting it under control the last couple of runs. Just need to find the sweet spot and start working on it.

Thanks to Big Jeff / INTENSE for their help in getting car worked out. Thanks to spd98 (shawn) for the O2 sensor, and everyone else who helped out. (Joe, Jamie, Neil, JD)

HP Tuners - here I come.

Thanks guys!

Scott,
No doubt in my mind after last night, if I concentrate on the tuning, lighten the car some, and most importantly work on 60' and traction....I will be down where I want to be. Top 20 :D ;)
Thanks for your help!

Of course I am going to be picking Chris Y and John T brains when I get the HP Tuner from you. :confused: :eek:

Boogie,
I'm running a complete Stage 3 car w/ 3.69's and Gen V. Similar to Tim King and Chris Yates. I just don't have time for track right now and only just starting to get to the track. I have a lot of learning to do. The slow ET's are mostly my learning as well as not pushing the car to the limits of tuning yet.

Dan,
Good to hear from you. How did you do through the Hurricane?? I may enlist your help, we have quite a bit of damage at the house (new roof, drywall, electrical).

Definitely going to IC it, but someone has put another idea in my head, so I will wait and see how it comes out for him.

Did you ever get your IC pump problems worked out??

Thanks again guys :D i'm giddy as a school kid gettin a blow job

Steve, sorry to hear about your home. I'd be more than glad to help with repairs, but I live in Tallahassee now. School requires %120 of my time :( .

I'll let you know when I come home (should be next week or the week after).

Oh, and yes, I did get my IC pump problem fixed. She's running pretty good right now! :)

John - You know I loved it, makes me want more.

Dan - let me know when you are in town....swing by anytime friday night or Saturdays when you are home. Or give me a call.
