My bet is you will still pull an all nighter the night before.

I saw the schedule when I went to plainfield to pick up a floor pan, is this the 10.5" tire series?

Well Race#1 is in the books ... made it to the finals and ended up running .04 to fast ... silly car kept getting faster all day long even after de-tuning it...
Did run my personal best on just motor in the 1st round of elims ... 11.89 at 111 .... thanks to PER Racing engines for a great motor ....
So i ended up be runner up... a good day all in all ... car ran perfect and driver was'nt to shabby....

Heres a couple of pics from yesterday ... from 2nd round qualifying and the semis ....

great to hear Auror. So you dont have to back into the water box over there anymore? Its been a while since we went to byron. Hate to tell you though, but it sounds like you were going the right tuning way while trying to detune. I hate when that happens.

you still have to back into the water box ... nothings changed in 20 years ... lol
as far as the tuning .. it seems that it liked a little less timing than what i usually run ... and less rpm's on the shift points ... started at 5700 in the beginning of the day ... and in the finals i was at 5200 ...but then again the air was getting better and better also ... i can't complain thou .. for a low compression pump gas blower motor with out a blower it gets the job done ...
next event is Saturday June 27th at Byron Dragway...

ok more changes to the car ... is it ever finished ... lol

another carb to try out and a air box ... hopefully we can get it to run a 11.50 and move up to the next class ... no fun in slowing it down ... cars in pieces as we speak ....

good for you Auror. One of the things I hate about bracket racing are the guys that can run 11's in the 12.50 class on the brakes at the finish line.

I remember one night we were at the grove testing and tuning. It was dark and late and a pill fell out of the main bypass, so the poppet opened and returned 70% nitro back to the tank almost immediately. The rail sounded awesome. he smoked the tires at the line, got it straight, smoked them again, and skated all the way down the track. We didnt notice the pill was missing til we got back to the shop and got ready for the next race, but just figured it was cold and the track was not prepped so it really had nothing to do with the pill leaning out the motor, but the rail never rant that good again, even when it ran 7.87 at 192 with that powerglide I got out of my 66 chevelle, kinda built up but nothing major. Eventually we found out the fuel pump was throwing three times the fuel at the motor and needed to either be downsized or bypassed.

anyway, dont forget about the timing and lower shift points when you make the move with the carb.

I am going to miss the June 27th race due to some repairs being made to the driver ... seems that i have blown a side wall out and have to go in on the 26th to get that fixed ....

Hope to be back for the July race ....
