Dalke what do you have that'll run low 10's? I must have missed your build thread?

I think I've got a solid 6.1 car once it's lined out. My problem is I get the car running good then change it over the winter lol. I've switched to the china turbo, a better boost controller, and a converter change. My last visit to a no prep yielded some impressive results so I'm on the right track:p

I can neither confirm no deny anything. So what are you building - 6.1? Hemi? or you gonna run a 6.1 in the 1/8th? I think a turbocharged 6.1 might run a 6.1xx.... :D

I'm setting a goal of 6.1 in the 1/8 mile. I was at the track last weekend dialing in the new boost controller and on 13psi the car ran 6.9 100mph with a very soft 1.61 60'. I was impressed with how well it run on low boost. Engine load was in the 1.4-1.5 range. One major difference was I took the rpm out to 6900 (on accident) where I have been shifting it around 6000.

You need to get rid of that leaded crap. go with ms103 or ms109 whichever is easier to get for you.

I dont think the full manual body with trans lock was on there at the time there. Or the two step I have yet to install either.

Ken,

I'm not unstoppable, I got beat last year by an M90 with nitrous because I let him get in my head and jumped the start for a red light on the final round. Brian Oatway will be there, because like me he is one of the Shootout's main organizers. Looking forward to seeing you and your car this year.

Maybe so, but every time I shifted all I saw was the wall. And they were bad enough that Smitty convinced the wife that they were unsafe and not to let me use them. He'll tell you how bad they were.

Of course maybe it's because I was channeling John Force a little also :)

I thought they had lost a good bit of grippiness being as old as they apparently are, but after comparing to a brand new set, they're not that bad after all..lol.

Thanks Matt. Willing to accept any and all offers of assistance. I won't have any room in the car for extra tires or wheels or a jack or anything, so I am at the mercy of the good nature of others!

May I ask what size they are?

26"X11.5" (maybe 10.5") mounted on stock sc wheels

Great, thanks! I haven't run 26" tires in years. Be interesting to see how they perform. I really appreciate the offer.

That is the SC motto... if you need anything just ask and it will be there. That goes for you guys from NY as well. So if you need anything just let me know and I will have it ready for your needs.....Rich

Nice John. So how is the transmission working out?

It's,

The transmission is good. Shift beautiful everytime. It has a noise that it had since it was installed so i have a rebuild kit for it. I also ran it last year with only about 1.5 litres of oil and it took it though it was making noise until it was topped up. That is what happens when the trans is installed 1 year before it is driven. I though I had already topped it up. Oops!

Ira - I've got my old set of MT's you're welcome to try. I thought they had lost a good bit of grippiness being as old as they apparently are, but after comparing to a brand new set, they're not that bad after all..lol. As long as Danielle doesn't make me put them on the anniversary, I can bring them for you.

Matt are these my old ones, I can't remember who I sold them too. Early style SC wheels? MT ET Streets? If so I think they were 26 X 10.5 X 16

Just curious

I don't think so, Smitty...

I bought them from Kurt K at the 2009 Shootout and I'm pretty sure he bought them used too. I can't find the discussion we had about these particular slicks....David N knew the history prior to Kurt's and my ownership of them though....lol

Probably lost in the archives of Facebook. :rolleyes:

I think we had determined they were over 10 years old in 2014. :eek: But like I said, they're really not bad....I could spin them, so I figured they needed replaced, but I can spin the new 28" Hoosiers too...I now blame my launch rather than the actual tires after trying some different "moves". They're in good shape - not dried out....I've been saving them for Danielle to use.

For the record, I bought them new. I'm not sure if I can figure out when, but I will try. I do know that when I went to a 27" tall tire, my car responded well. The 26" tire was too short for the loose converter that I have--or at least that's what I thought the problem was.

edit: According to my old webpage, I first used the slicks on January 22, 2000.

That's funny. 17 year old slicks. If that doesn't fit the bill for this car nothing will. I wonder. If they're that old they may have already been on the car. It seems most of the car parts that came out of St Louis have been at one time or another lol

It is funny you mention this Ira. I assure you those slicks were already on that car. Chris came to my house shortly after I bought it and borrowed them. It took me several months to get them back, but not before Chris took them on an adventure documented with pictures. "Mick the Slick" was a classic on the original TBU and nobody has been able to come up with the pictures to resurrect it.

You're so right! So make sure you bring a set of 28" slicks for me so I won't have to beg Danielle to borrow hers :eek:

For the record I didn't tell you to toss them. I ran an 11.90 and broke your transmission and an axle last time they saw track time.

I understand all that, and you are confusing your comments from last winter/spring with what I said, circa right after the Shoot Out. So I was not ever talking about what you said, but of our friend from Tennessee, who was nice enough to pull the tires off the car at the end of the day at the Shoot Out. Now this was after I went sideways twice on my last run of the day, and at that time it was pretty obvious that there was no rubber left on the tires.
