I agree. I'm sure a cam/head change would go a long way with this engine. I'm more interested in a possible cam change a small shot of nitrous later on. But for now, just lighter wheels/tires, battery in the trunk, line lock, and a AFR gauge for carburetor tuning.I know your probably talking about your present combo but as I said earlier a cam would surprise you there is a lot left.
You got to start somewhere, go out and try bracket racing. It's stories like the above that make it interesting. I've lost as many races as I won just like that. And others, well I put myself out. I was in the lanes getting ready to run a 7.40 dragster that beat me once before by .0005. So I said I am going after him. Well, short story, I took .005 out of the delay box and proceeded to go -.005 red.That is incredible. There are times where I get the itch to try some bracket racing, and then I realize I'd be quickly shot down lol. But hey, if you never try you can't learn right?
I need to do more research on launching also. I'm interested in how I can improve on the way my car leaves, with the current setup I have. Or minor changes like shocks, sway bars, etc.
Funny you mention that, I started entering all my time slips and other data into excel a few weeks ago. I need to keep track of wind speed though. I tried to plot some of my data (scatter plot, with a line of best fit) but the graphs weren't meaningful. There is either not enough data points to make a correlation, or there may be just no correlation at all. I attached a copy in PDF format if you're curious (you may have to zoom in a bit to read it).You also need to monitor and track the weather(keep a log) and track the wind, your driving a brick. I'm sure you have seen the changes that makes.
Thanks! I actually have a set of 15x8's that I plan on refinishing for the street. I have run a 15x7 with a 235/60/15 in the front. No rubbing issues. The 8" might be a different story depending on your backspacing and ride height.Thats a darn nice car you have there young man ! And your doing some nice upgrades . I like the stance ! I have 235 60 15 on 15 x 8 rims in front of my 79 malibu and they scrub on hard bumps and tight turns , although i have heard some guys on here say they didnt have that problem
