  1. That's a wrap for a little while. I've been consumed by this goal for most of the year. I've made ~75 passes and made tons tweaks this year. I've just about worn out a set of drag radials. I'm very glad to have this behind me and my car at home in the garage in one piece.

    November 9th is the first Saturday test and tune at Beech bend. The following two Saturdays should be t&t also. Hopefully you can get it in and broken in by then.
  3. LS Engine parts

    I was hanging on to all this to build a shortblock over the winter, but I have other plans now.Everything is new in the box, unopened.Callies Compstar 6.125" rods, .927 pin. $620 ARP 234-5608 main stud kit. $215 Wiseco .927 thick wall pins. This is the typical upgrade if you run a wiseco piston. part number S718 $150 King CS5510HP Cam bearings. $50 BTR LS9 head gaskets $91 Oil Pan gasket Cam thrust plate Dorman rear cover with gasket and seal Front cover gasket and seal It's $1300 in parts total if you bought it from Summit, $1600 from BTR. I'll sell it all combined for $1100
  4. Another new best 60', ET and mph. Full weight 4580lbs. and 1100' DA.
  5. Thinking About Getting A New Car

    It's mid fall, winter is right around the corner. You might get to drive it, but it's probably going to sit the majority of the next few months. Just wait it out and pay 100% cash. Who knows, you may find a better deal when you are a cash buyer. The reward for being smart with your money will be much more satisfying.
  6. Random thought thread

    Are you trying to move to a different division of Nissan or looking to get away all together?
  7. E85, 4.5L whipple. That's all I can tell from looking at it, I've never asked him.
  8. Another new best last night 6.44@109. Once I get my 60' back down to my 1.44 best, that should be an easy 9. This is at full weight and I'm guessing 13-1500' DA. This was in the 16 car round of the Music City fastest street car "race". I gave the Hellcat everything I had and he barely beat me. I can't be mad at myself for an .010 light and a best ET.

    You know you can just pull up outside the fence ("lane 5") after the bracket stuff starts and run in between rounds. I've been doing that most of the year. I have no desire to bracket race with a bunch of buy backs, so I just test and tune until I'm ready to go home.

    My guess is the 7.28 is an 11.2x in the 1/4. a ~7.09 will be a 10.99. You're less than .2 away from the 10's. How is that for motivation?
  11. 6L90e Trans Log

    The TCM is part of the valve body inside the transmission. Have you pulled the tune out of it and edited it or did you just flash the 6l80 tune into it? You probably need to pull the 6.90 tune out and edit it with your shift timing, pressure etc tables and do a "write entire".

    Without the bad, you can't really appreciate the good. Try to find the bright side. Luckily you can let it sit and go beat on the GT500 at the track now that fall weather is just around the corner. If you're up to it, the "fastest" 64 "street car" shootout starts tomorrow night at the Hill. It's the weirdest layout of a race I've ever seen.

    It's good that you didn't immediately jump to a bad "new" part, but eventually you get there. You don't expect something new to be bad, but it does happen. Beefing up your wiring will never be a bad thing. I think the alternator and starter rebuild outfits that "reman" them, just stick the cores on a test machine and if it reads inside their spec they rebox it and send it out. Their spec must be pretty loose though.
