Track Meet-ups 2017

100 posts in this topic

So it's 2017 and the drag strips will be opening up soon. I figured we could try and have a couple unofficial track meets this year to see how out junk runs and have some fun. :yes:

I've got to do a tune on my junk at the very least, but I'm not against running as is right now to get a baseline.

Who's down for a Street Night at the hill or a trip to beech bend on a street legal night?

Beech Bend opens up March 4th for a T&T day. :3gears:

Who's down for March 4th at Beech Bend? :hyper:

I'm guessing they are basically the same 7.5" 10-bolt that was in the 4th gens?

Do they make a 12-bolt IRS?

I'm not sure what size it is, but it's tougher than a 12 bolt and anything but a fully built 8.8.  They have been 7's.  It's had too many violent wheel hop launches this last year trying to get the car to leave on a 300 shot.  It broke the spider gears, but the ZR1 diff has upgrade spider gears.

I also want to see what it'll do. Do you have sticky tires for it?

It's got drag radials on it. Da Coilovers for the front, single adjustable shocks on the rear. I've still gotta build/buy some traction bars.

Let's list what we think our junk will run and then afterward post our timeslips. :up: 

My junk has intake and catback, but it's untuned.

So I'm guessing it'll do 8.6 @ 83mph in the 1/8 and 13.4 @ 105mph in the 1/4 because of that. :lol:

Hope I'm way off and it's faster than that. :yes:

Not sure if i can manage BB anytime soon but I know the cars been 8.4s and ide like to see low 8's to high 7's maybe even lower with traction.  Not sure what that would be in the 1/4, low 12's maybe?  Ill keep an eye on this thread and if I can make BB Ill be there!  If not, Ill be at the Hill when it opens up during the week.
