Had you gone to the track, you would know. IF nobody knew who you were they would think you were a regular as much as you want in on rule making, instead of the 2-3 times that you usually show up per year :mrgreen:


What does asking about times and rule making have in common? Nothing. If I'm going to run a class, I'm going to input on the rules. Come work my weekend shift for me and I'll be at the track every weekend. Don't get me started Bob. :twisted:

I made 10 passes or attempted to. I spun on 6 of 10, but not many trying to do what I do, launch a tank on 9" rubber. I was testing carb spacers, 1" open, 1" wilson tapered 4 hole and a 2" open. I made my quickest pass with the Wilson @ 6.46, 2-6.47's with the 1" open and a 6.48 with the 2" open. Granted the wind was blowing like crazy, the air was sh*tty but all were run under the same conditions.

If I post MY sorry times then so does every one else--K? cause I promise you did better than me. R/T .815- 60' 2.16- 330' 6.56- 1/8th 10.04- 1/4 15.9. Disappointing times but hey first time on track with the car and I think I may need some taller gears did not see a whole lot of gain between 1/8th and 1/4 mph. I "tested" five times today---now I will tune and fix for a week and try again next Saturday---but I need to keep my eyes open for some nice 4.10's I think.


ATTA A BOY >> GIRL....

You didn't have a bad ET....you lifted , didn't you ?? :roll: :roll:

You hang in there , next trip down the track will be better....
Sorry we missed today , had previous plans...but next week..

Glad it was a big turnout , I knew it would be.

See ya next week , Daddyslilrat..

Kay

I could do like the fellas and say "YES I LIFTED" but actually the only thing lifting was my big butt over the roll cage (that by the way I do not need yet) as I crawled into the car. Better Luck next week hopefully--can't keep this cat down, she has nine lives!!

Based on the laws of physics and some basic math, your 1/8th mile time should be 60% of your 1/4 mile time. So typically you can take your 1/8th mile time and multiply it by 1.53 and thats about what you should run in the 1/4. My fastest 1/8th mile pass in my Mark VIII was a 9.49 and on the same pass my 1/4 time was a 14.514. 9.49 X 1.53 is 14.519. Close enough for me. :peel: :thumbsup:

Bob , are you sure you treed him ? Or did he lift at the wrong end... :?:

You know Larry gets real confused and has the "knee jerk syndrome" from about Jan 5th to March "1th"...so you need to give him til April to get that worked out. :roll:

Ouch, don't kick me any more King.. :) :) :)
