Congrats on the new best. Some more traction will probably bring you into the 12s.

A low 9 is cooking. I'd be happy with 13s.

Well I only ran once on Saturday night and spun 1st, 2nd, and short shifted to third peddling it before it finally hooked up. I broke the throttle cable on 2nd run and wasn't able to make another pass. The other guy spun hard in 4wd leaving to.

Andy you need to work on your traction issue. Lol. I bet that thing will move once it hooks up. That sucks about your throttle cable snapping. I had the same happen to me on the dyno. I took some hay twine and noosed it around the linkage ball, then ran it through the fire wall to a old pocket knife. On bad ass hand throttle. If your O/D switch is on the floor like I think it is you could have cobbled together something similar.

New personal best for me today guys.
Ran a 13.64 @ 95.
Was in the low 14s all morning, and then had some helping advice given to me by Cory Dow. He suggested I tighten the afc. And it really helped me out of the hole where my truck was running really rich. Thanks Cory!

For the most part yes. But my next time to the track I'll be in the same boat as you.

@ Andy: You really need traction. Once you get it, you may very well find out how strong the trans shaft(s) are. :shock:

It's been my experience that boosted launches find weak links. It seems 10psig is a comfortable max for the stock-shaft trans.

As far as shift-points: If you guys have recent dyno plots, look at you torque curve and try to have the next gear landing just before the torque peak (watch your tach while practicing passes).

DON'T build "Launch Boost" and hold it there while the dumbass next to you does his Ostrich dance chit. You only flash-heat the fluid in the converter, making it thinner, so it then doesn't hook as hard. ;) It's my experience that another 100* hotter trans fluid makes a HUGE difference in the ET, especially in the 1st 300 feet. To the tune of .10 of a second in the 8th, in my mess.
- With no slicks (running street tires), and if you can, drive around the water-box keeping the tires dry. (I have no experience with slicks).
- Go ahead and creep into the first beam (shallow-staged), pump-up your brakes so as to have a good grip and wait for dumbass. Have your brakes pumped-up GOOD!**
- Let dumbass go ahead and fully stage.
- As soon as dumbass is fully staged, with the brakes held firmly, quickly build to launch-boost and creep into the next beam (again, shallow-staged). Be quick with this as you might red-light by taking too long (pending how the tree operator has things set. You may have a few seconds).
- I usually let fly halfway through the third yellow. The shallow-staging helps in this case . . . . for me anyway.

If you didn't do it at the dyno, set your WOT timing (with the KSB ON, if you do that) based on the ET improvement.

If you haven't, fix the danged AFC (lean is mean ;) ).


** I say pump the brakes good cause 25psig launch-boost may push through the brakes. :oops:

I think if I get traction I'll find out how bad my trans really is. It hooked the other day and shuddered hard going into 2nd. I also need to get my fuel issue fixed and figure a few other things out I have going on.
