Finally did it!!!

Finally got into the 12's!

R/T = .5012 (Bring it on, David!)
60' = 1.7092
1/8 ET = 8.0951
1/8 MPH = 82.48
1/4 ET = 12.8933
1/4 MPH = 101.76

Changes I made for this run were a nitrous bottle warmer, DI intercooler, and Black Widow Diesel limiters.

I made a run w/o the limiters and got a 13.01, so apparently bottle warmers and the intercooler do something. Put the limiters on sort of snug and ran a 12.97. Came back around and snugged 'em down some more for the 12.89.

My times at this track are historically slower than the other tracks I go to so I will hopefully be posting some better times in the next couple of weeks.

Thanx to David Lott for all the great work, products, and effort and thanx to BBunting and Black Widow Diesel for giving me what I needed to get over the edge.

Awesome runs. I know you have played w/ stock tires but I can't imagine that works to well when you have 4:30 gears, have you tried something around a 35"??

Actually, the 12.89 was with the 37" tires.

I have 4.56 gears. I'm debating trying a different size tire though since I want a seperate set to trash at the track.

I'm not sure, but I think he is referring to a device to prevent excessive weight tranfer to the rear. Probably something like straps to limit the amount of rise in the front suspension at launch.

Correct. It's steel rods that connect the frame to the spring pack.
