Re: Need blessing or advice from \"Gods of Drag Racing\"

please give me which track your running at and your shift pattern plz...and any other evaluations you notice during the run. b/c either the car is not in the best of tuned states or there's another issue b/c this car should go quicker for certain, some stock foci run that quick...however give me those details above, and we'll begin to break this down.

Re: Need blessing or advice from \"Gods of Drag Racing\"

I race at Dragway 42 in West Salem, Ohio. The elevation is about 1100ft. It was about 55 degrees the night I made this run.

The car is a power premium with power windows, power mirrors, power door locks, A/C and a power moonroof. The stock curb weight is 2773 lbs.

I launch by slowly dropping the clutch at about 2400 rpm
Shift to second at 6500 rpm
Shift to third at 6000 rpm
Shift to fourth at 6000 rpm
I only have the stock Ford Tach too.

I ran a 16.3 this weekend, I could'nt get my launches right and I know its capable of 15.8. Maybe its your launches?
How many passes did you make?

I made 10 passes. I'm going to check a few things out and start playing with my launch rpm and shift points.

I'm not running drag radials like some of you guys are though. And I know drag radials are good for a few tenths.

I'm street tire all the way.

drags are only worth a tenth at best, sometimes .15. where they really make it is that they are far more consistant than streets
