13.2 at 101 with a 4300lbs Caprice last night at Great Lakes Dragaway I was tickled will try to get back down there and make a 12 second pass yet this season. I can easily yank probably 150lbs out of the car if I want and there were indications of fuel issues up top.

Nice.... That's fast. What's the 60' time?
Edit...Just checked the garage and saw you posted the run on 1/4 mi table. Nice 1.8x 60'. That's really good considering the mild gearing and the weight of the car.

Consider it was 28x10.50 ET drags too a little too tall for the 3.42s but that can be fixed over winter. The 3.42s would be perfect for the daily driver wagon as that is what the Caprice was when they went in it. I am going to spend a piece of today swapping injectors and wiring in a fuel pump relay kit, the factory wiring is small might even be as small as 16 gauge and the relay is underhood. I am going to put a new breakered relay back at the tank with 12 gauge and rerun the grounds to 12 gauge as well.

Ran 1/8th mile at New England Dragway today. Air was 336 feet at noontime.

7.465 @ 91.84 with closed exhaust.
7.347 @ 93.09 with open exhaust.

Unfortunately it was the last day of the season. Very crowded. Only got 5 passes in.

Is there a formula to figure what the estimated 1/4 mile time would be from those figures?

I had my best short times. 1.651 with closed exhaust. 1.623 with the exhaust open.

The info I have seen says to multiply by something between 1.54 and 1.57 some say to use gearing to determine which exactly with lower numerical gears using the lower numerical conversion. For my car the 1.57 comes close but is still a shade lower than the times I actually ran, but then again as noted it felt like I had a slight fuel issue up top so maybe that is what I should have run.

This is on Race gas & 26psi. Previous best was on Race gas @ 29psi:



For the last run of the night, I bumped the boost up to 30psi, but that caused the car to spin through 1st and 1/2 way through 2nd... 11.7@126 w/ a 2.1 60'

I also ran an 11.70@120 w/ a 1.77 60' on pump gas Friday night.

Thanks Very Happy


Looks like it's time to get serious about adding a cage. If the traction was just a little better I know I'd be in the 11.3's or lower.

Hey Jeep, the 1/8th mile times you posted convert to the following 1/4 mile times using the calculator I found.

7.465 = 11.72

7.347 - 11.53

Thanks Pro and 96 Caprice,
That's about what I thought the car would do when I was first putting it together. Course I thought the car would weigh 200 pounds less than it does so I'm pleased.
Because it is a street car, I didn't want to put a bar or cage in it, but after watching Steve George hit the wall and roll over. Steve has a lot more seat time than I do and if it could happen to him it could happen to anyone.
I think we'll build one with a removeable center bar in case someone wants to sit in the back.

Last weekend 6.92 at a little over 101 through full exhaust at slightly over 3800 lbs. Still learning to launch it with the Procharger and eased it out to a 1.62 60'. Brought dump tubes but didn't get to use them because of a slight problem I covered elsewhere. Jeep_406 - I put in a cage in mine with the removable bar like you describe. I also ran the side bars lower than legal because I drive mine on the street a good bit. One thing I don't like about mine is the center hoop. I started by tucking it real nice and close to the inside of the car, but later found out that the rear window handles had to go behind it to work so I pulled it away a little. I would have either made the windows fixed and removed the handles or remade a flat handle and left the hoop close to the outside. I think it would look better. The other thing - the car hasn't hooked since the cage. You can tell a difference with adjustments now that I couldn't tell without the cage, and I just haven't found the magic combo yet, but I'm close. Clay
