Yes, there were problems. 1st I need a lesson in pinion angle as I got it backward appearantly. Started off with a bad case of wheel hop and no angle finder. I adjusted it some anyway and it got not as violent, so I kept adjusting til it was minimized. Then of course there's the wheel spin issue that 11 psi in the tires and any sort of burnout, short or long, wouldn't make go away. Need to take some measurements and see what I can do about that. Could use some lessons in shifting too. I missed 2nd twice trying to speed shift and ended up granny shifting.:punchballs:

Also decided to open the valve on the n2o and add some fuel. I use a dry nozzle before the TB and MS for the extra fuel. That took a little tuning to get the right a/f ratio. Started with a 0.028 jet (35hp?) and went right to the biggest jet I had, 0.043 (80hp?). I'll be getting more jets very soon.:D

The heat was on at 90* with 95% humidity :evilgrin: and that kept the attendance down. I think I made 11 runs and could of made many more.

I know I'm forgetting stuff, but enough for now.

Thanks Mike. I guess it will take a little more work to get ahead of those V8 guys.
I notice your dislexia kicked in on the 60' time, 1.865.

WOW this is great! Makes me wonder why I put such a big engine in mine. Pushed me to number 7.

But I now have lower gears, louder exhaust and better wheels for the slicks. All I have to do is make it back to the strip with some good luck.

Keep up the good work; I want nitrous (researching now).

I want more nitrous! That stuff is CRACK for cars.
I've been a scared little wus about turning it on and now that I have I've got to have more more more!

Maybe I'll go back to the C4 and hit it, I can shift that.

Sleeper, Get it to the track. I want to see what it will do. Mike needs some more 4 banger TC's in the top 10.

Doug, you are the only 4cyl in the top 12! I'd say you are off to a good start.
