What have you changed on it that's makin it slower? I feel your pain, the last car Ihad that was even worthy of putting rubber on a track, I was constantly gettin hammered by cars with less hp and better drivers. I just kept at it and eventually started spankin everyone. Keep your chin up man, for some reason somebody decided it has to get worse before it gets better.

well i was running a best of 7.39 @98.7 mph but i havent been able to drive for 2 years and now im relearning everything. im real nervous on the tree. i know reaction time doesnt affect your ET but still i hate to lose to some guy in the other lane because he got a good jump on me. also i just put in a bigger cam and intake manifold so i should be picking up alot more high end power but it seems to die off at about 500ish rpm.


the worst thing is the last 2 times ive been to the track i have had SERP belt problems and was barely able to drive the thing home cuz the belt was squealing so bad.


hopefully tonite will be better, there are gunna be pro mods at the track so traction shouldnt be a problem. anybody got a driver mod for sale? mine has gone bad confused

My brother pulled a five hundred light once (back when that was good). He was sitting there bullshitting with my wife, and she saw the tree come down (he wasn't paying attention). She said, "Go!", and he did. .500.

Sounds like it's fuel related....do you have a fuel pressure guage on it? If so, what's your fuel pressure at when power starts falling off?
