Re: New project

Ran the Houston performance trucks ( HPT ) shootout this weekend with both trucks . I took the yellow truck out to run the 10.0 index and my buddy Jay came and got my Blue street truck to run 12.0 index . The weather was horrible 72 and mist. The track hung with it through a cold front coming through and put us on a good track for sure . Last year I was 10.04 . This year fastest pass was 10.22 . Hard to win leaving a quarter second on the table . I would typically spray , but the air went from 1800 DA to -961 in a matter of hours . I was worried about hurting something here at the first of the season with the points lead . The blue truck came out swinging . It went 12.04 out of the trailer and with just removal of the air cleaner it went 11.70 . So we go to work . Jay had the largest field in the show and had to go 2 extra rounds for the win . I ended up going to 3 trucks just off the tree (.400 pro tree) and got to third round and imo was late @ .071 . The guy I was running was .198 and able to run 9.80 in a S-10 twin turbo truck and run through nose to tail with me for a 10.01 to my 10.22 . I also ran the 6.50 cash days shootout Were in the semis finals I put a new personal best of 1.41 60" on motor for a break out of 6.487 lifting at about 580 foot and taking a 18 wheeler length of strip . Temp settled at around 46 degrees by the end of the race . Still a fun weekend , Here are some of the pictures .
Open time trials



The blue square body was the 10.0 index winner . Single turbo junk yard 5.3

Jays pairing for 12.0 finals



We had 3 people ask us about electronics which are not allowed . The blue truck doesn't even have an MSD box . It is a 388 with a HEI off Ebay that is a footbrake deal . No transbrake .

I learned a lot from these guys . The blue square body was air to air intercooled 5.3 and the white S-10 was waster to air under the intake hat . I think it was a 4.8 with 2 small turbos . I was down on power and didn't want to risk killing a motor with my on the edge nitrous tune up . Both great guys . Think my big tire project is going LS single turbo on E85 now .

Re: New project

Well I had a points lead in super pro / box class going into this weekend . We rain delayed until about noon and they put us a great track together . After second time trial I was changing my 2 step point from 3900 to back to 3600 . and forgot to disconnect the fuel pump. Hydro locked the motor with fuel . Pulled the plugs , and blew the fuel out , but man it started smoking . I worked my way down to 12 cars in super pro or box class Saturday night . Got up sunday thinking I was headed into a good day of racing . Well that went down hill quick . Appearently o broke the starter bolt off in the block by the outside ear . and the second bolt bent right after first round . I was double teched in no box/footbrake and box class . And was the last car up there . We rolled upder the tower and I crawled under the truck and held the starter in place while a buddy started it up . I was rattled badly and in a rush to get suited up and belted in . I was .039 to his .013 and went 6.424 on a 6.41 dial . he slid across the finish line with the front brakes locked for the win. I jacked it up and got the broke bolt off and a new set of bolts put in . Last car in the staging lane for round 2 in super pro . Ended up being .010 red . Brought it back to the pits and when I killed it and it hydro locked again . Found the back float stuck open.

Re: New project

I tore into it today . I checked the fuel pressure and it was dead on 6.5 psi . Drained the tank , cleaned the filter ( wasn't bad ) . Then pulled the rear bowl . Float level was to high . I miss read the instructions . It said fuel to the bowl inspection plug threads and 2 turns . This meant 2 flats or ad 1/3 turn. Once I left ( the starting line ) the fuel pump would force it to spill over making it just rich enough to kill some numbers . Then when the motor would use enough to lower the level it would run out the back clean. Should be good to go . Going out Friday to test and make 1/4 mile passes to see if I can get enough cylinder heat to reseal the rings.

Re: New project

Redemption 12.0 no prep . What a great time . Runner up in 7.0 Friday night . Lost on a double breakout and got to 6 cars in 6.50 index Saturday and spun , but was less than a half a car at the finish for the loss. Had a great time , met some new friends and came home with some money .

Re: New project

Well what a scorcher. Over 100 degrees both days . We ended up going out at 5 car Saturday during the bracket race . Was in the no box gamblers race and ended up with the win at like 1:30 am . Then Sunday lost at 3 cars . 3 races = 2 checks and some cash. Pretty good weekend .

Re: New project

I have literally beat the crap out of this thing lately . So I put it in the garage for a good look over yesterday . Had 5 valves with more than .030 lash . Just set everything back were it needed to be . Oh and the rear bowl was spilling over due to being set wrong , but the front was also set wrong so I fixed that . One electric fan wasn't working , fixed that . Tires are done so I bought 2 pair of slicks . I still have a decent set to run on while they come in . Plans are to check the brake pads and sample the trans fluid and rear end fluid change . I think I'm gonna try a set of 29,5Ws for no prep and see how that goes .
