    Very cool. Yes, that's the same person talked about in my Grandmothers notes.

    We might put my hp tuners scanner on it Tuesday and see what it's doing for boost and rpm, tire speed etc. I glued my tires to the rims last night so I'll want to make a pass or two to see if they are still moving, then we can datalog your car.

    Hopefully the slow motion stayed after uploading it to youtube. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=Y2qQGcm9-NY
  4. The logs show I'm letting out at 140mph. 12rpm of converter slip. A/F and timing are both good. It was dark at Beech Bend when I made both passes and I wasn't really paying attention to where the line was. Both of those 139-140mph cars I ran should have been pulling on me, but they weren't and didn't fly past me either. There's no reason it should only be running 132, and I don't have anything to explain it other than letting off early. Yes, I realize that I would have to be doing it consistently. I went 136 about a month ago with less 1/8th mph.
  5. The 1/4 mph is low for some reason. Maybe I'm letting out early. It's been 136 and those should have been a 138mph passes. Yes, I still drive it there and drive it back with the a/c and seat cooling turned on. I went to Clarksville Speedway Friday night and cut a 1.44 60'.

    Their Carne Asada burrito is the bomb. I like The Chile Burrito better, but they only have two locations.

    Here's a picture dump of this weeks progress. I basically finished mocking up all the cold side piping and radiator "hoses". I still have to add the bypass valve somewhere on the 4" pipe to the throttle body. radiator hoses in 304ss. 2 1/2" aluminum from the turbos to the intercooler. And the 4" from the intercooler to throttle body.

    It's too much of a pain to upload pictures here now. Half of them won't load. I posted it all to instagram and facebook. Don't go there though if you want to keep your soul.

    I would also be inclined to recommend craftsman now that lowes carries them. But, I have used my friends HF tools and I wasn't dissatisfied with them. Their return policy on broken tools is decent. Their boxes are a great bang for the buck, especially the tool cart. Even thought neither are US made, I'd still rather have the Craftsman personally. I still have most of my original set from the 80's as a portable set.

    Can you swap the tail house off your stock 6l80?
  12. NewestER DD 2012 GT500

    I had one in my GN with the 6 speed. I liked it. It drove like a stock clutch. Pedal effort was minimal. It will not live realy long if you are slipping it a lot at the track to launch. That shouldn't be a problem since you don't run drag radials.

    Did the clutch slip trying to do either burnout? Some clutch discs have a waved center steel section that helps the clutch engage softly. If you get the disc hot, that wave expands and since it's waved the disc can get thicker. If you don't have enough pressure plate clearance the disc will drag and the syncro has to fight that to slow the input shaft. Sometimes this shows up as it being hard to get into gear when stopped also. Do GT500 owners ever swap to bigger clutch master cylinders? That would give the pressure plate more travel. Since your trans has the largest 1st to 2nd gear ratio change it has to slow the input shaft down more rpm than most tr6060's. This is most likely the root of your problem anyway. Sadly there is no easy fix for that monster ratio change.

  14. Union Hill TNT thread

    My fuel pump issues seems to be fixed. I can start tweaking the tune. I'm surprised the car isn't 60'ing better than it is. So I pulled up datalogs from last year and I consistently had 3-5 degrees more timing in that 60' time range on 93 than I do on e85. There's obviously more to be had there. My best pass for the night last night was a 1.51,6.61@107. The DA calculator I normally use has some crazy wrong temperature values, so I plugged in what my display says it was and on that pass DA was about 950. Matt, on your passes DA was between 12-1350. Let me know when your best pass in the coyote was and I'll see if I have DA data for that night, assuming I was there that night.
