Got her fired up and pulled her outside the shop to take a video. She has 3 stages of nitrous a fogger and two stage plate. Should get it out to the track soon hopefully if it ever stops raining.

That's a lot of juice! I like the bungee cords around the radiator too!

LOL those are metal straps that are attached to the frame with bolts it holds the radiator in the car. This is a home built chassis car and some of the stuff on it I just scratch my head when I look at it.

He went 5.85@120 N/A with a 1.35 60ft leaving off the footbrake the converter is way tight for this thing N/A but it made three good passes N/A now it time to put the gas to her. Starting with 150hp off the transbrake for a few passes, then the fogger on a timer with a 300hp shot. We are going to pull 7 degrees with the 150 then 15 more degrees with the 300hp hit. Hopefully this will be a safe starting point. The plate is set with 5.8psi fuel flowing and the fogger with a 82 check jet is set at 6psi. But I need to add a anti-roll bar to it before we do that.

Finally got to make a few nitrous passes only using 1 stage of 150 off the trans brake got that stage dialed in with a best pass of 5.53@127 and a 1.27 60ft shifting at 6500rpm. We need to work on the chassis some it is torquing bad off the line and costing us some et in the 60ft.

Went a best of 5.35@128 with 1.24 60ft on 150 shot. Next pass he turned the fogger on and was on a pass until it blew the hose off just before the 1/8 and he hit the wall at over 130 mph and totaled the car back to the drawing board.

Aw man that sucks! Saw it was head gasket pressure leaking into the system that blew the hose. Wow. I did read the other post and no injuries is good. Drive train is still good I would imagine?

Yeah the drivetrain is good except it bent the axle housing he is looking into fixing it. I told him to scrap it since it needs both rear 1/4s new rear frame rails from main hoop back and the main hoop is bent also. Foward of the hoop looks good but im sure it's out of shape to.

WOW - glad he's o.k. After that I can't imagine how it could be anywhere close to square. I do have one question though. Why wouldn't the radiator cap relieve the pressure or is it a case of it can't relieve enough volume and pressure builds anyway even though it is relieving? Just curious. Clay

I'm going with the "it can not move enough volume" through the 1/64th inch dia. radiator cap hole they use as a weep hole to keep coolant from hemorrhaging out of the system.

He is applying enough pressure to lift (deforming out of shape) the heads off the block. High enough to allow for the combustion gasses to escape through the coolant passages. As to the total volume of gas I could only hazard a guess by saying that it might be fifteen to twenty percent of the combustion chamber volume per power stroke. Considering the 450 shot of gas that could be from 35 up to 50 cubic inches of atmospheric pressure gas at a time. That is a lot of gas to try to stuff through a tiny hole.

I was just thinking on an aftermarket radiator they usually have a decent blow off. Mine is a Griffin and it has around a 3/8" sized outlet - i.d. might be 5/16" or so - but at 20 p.s.i. or so that size hole can flow a decent cfm I would think. I have no idea what sort of volume is getting by the gasket and if it blew the head gasket all bets are off as far as I can see but if it isn't blowing it and it seals back up I can't see it being a huge volume but I could be wrong. Just thinking out loud. Clay

Yeah the cap is releasing but my guess is that there is already pressure from the water temp then add the pressure from the gasket leak and it overwelms the system when it happens the over flow bottle is full. The gasket never blows keep in mind this thing is o ringed also and still lifting the gasket.
