Montgomery, AL...Home of ******* racing :add_wegbr
Car was running rich and had traction problems. Traction was due to track prep and all the crap they allowed on the track.
Yep the 86 went a whooping [email protected]
I did have fun, Earl Brown road shotgun with a laptop, taking notes and making adjustments. I still need to research the temps, it was 80 deg on the way home at 2am. I didn't get home untill 4:30am and off to work at 6am. Earl was tuning for mph, we got it up to 93.30 mph on 17psi boost. Up pipe is leaking and couldn't get any more boost. I didn't even care about R/T, just testing launching psi's

1st) 60' 2.222, 330' 6.090, 1/8 9.388 @ 74.79, 1/4 14.650 @ 92.75, 5 psi launch..spun, very rich
2nd) 60' 2.372, 330' 6.258, 1/8 9.522 @ 75.35, 1/4 14.737 @ 93.04, 3 psi launch..spun alittle, still rich
3rd) 60' 2.403, 330' 6.276, 1/8 9.542 @ 75.28, 1/4 14.761 @ 93.30, 3 psi launch..road the brake
4th) 60' 2.321, 330' 6.179, 1/8 9.426 @ 75.70, 1/4 14.638 @ 92.98, 4 psi launch..spun
5th) 60' 2.285, 330' 6.172, 1/8 9.461 @ 74.91, 1/4 14.715 @ 92.09, 3 psi launch..

LOL.. the carbed is faster.. Not bad all in all .. I could not believe some of the junk they let on the track throwing oil and what-nots. 3 kids in a convertable top down no helmets, dude on bike with t-shirt shorts. I think I'll go to Reyonlds next time. Uppipe is leaking so that's all the boost I could get. I'll fix that this week.
