    What do you have left to do for 2014 Shootout ?









    Its that time of year again!

    What do you guys have left to finish?

    Show off you're new mods!

    Talk smack !

    Last year my car performed like total dog crap! 205rwhp and 15.00ets , first thing I did when I got back was a custom fmic! This drasticly lowered my acts. But the best I could get out of the car was a 9.40 1/8th mile and it just never felt like it should. I replaced the blower injectors a few other things and nothing seemed to help plus if would always run hot 215/220f cruising no ac and it just got worse the faster you drove. Well I just parted out a 90 that had a very healthy rebuilt motor with a Morana B cam and some other goodies. With help from old_coot nmcnchief and Jeff_Bratton we yanked the motor and tranny out of my car and after some teardown made a discovery that explained a lot! My motor for reasons unknown has .035 of deck clearance which explains the huge lack of low-end tq! Also discovered cracks between the intake and exhaust valves on the front and rear driver side cylinders.

    So here is what I have in store.

    Tranny : rebuilt art Carr extreme
    Wide ratio
    Son ax a++ servo
    Mechanical diode
    Red alto clutches
    2" od band
    4r70w extension housing
    4r70w yoke
    31 spline billet input shaft
    Art Carr OD lockout valve ody
    Dirty dog billet 9" non lockup 2800 rpm coverter
    Lube mod

    Motor ?? Mile rebuild
    Morana B cam
    Ported heads
    Ported manifolds
    ARP head studs
    S port blower w/gtp rotors
    Mp inlet
    Mp springs
    Mp 10 rib 15% od pulley set
    3.5" intake
    76mm cl maf
    75mm polished pp tb
    #42 injectors
    Walboro 255lph pump
    31x12x4 fmic 2.75" pipes
    Quarter horse
    Wideband
    3.73s
    26x8.50x16 Mickey Thompson et drags

    Also new for this year 17x9 staggered offset cobra R's
    1.5" drop
    Rebuilt suspension

    I have a lot to do but it will be done! I hope to see a 13.XXX out of it this year and see no reason why I shouldn't! Anyway that's what I have going on what do you guys have left to do or have changed since last year?

    Wow....that's a big list.

    I've not yet taken my car to the track since installing the new rear end and ladder bars. I need to get a bunch of testing and seat time in before the shoot out. Hopefully everything works well and the testing doesn't lead to any major repairs. We'll see I guess........

    During the Power Tour, my inline booster fuel pump started sounding pretty sick, so I'm ditching it for a 340 lph intake pump. While I'm doing that, I'm replacing all of my braided stainless steel lines with Teflon lined braided stainless hose.


    Jacob, I hope Art Carr does a better job with their Extreme AODs today than they did when I had one. Didn't even last 4000 miles (actually less I think, but I'm not researching my old threads) and I hated the valve body. I think (check my old threads) it did actually lock out OD when accelerating from a stop, but otherwise it wasn't controllable like the Lentech with electronic lock-out.

    The only thing really art car is the valve body the rest of the tranny is all the best stuff you can use and its fresh. The only unknown is the vb and it has an od lockout solenoid so I hope its on par with the lintech. If not its not the end of the world since its easy to change. Everything else is top notch in this tranny. And it has got to be better than my slipping leaking wore out stock tranny was!

    All I need to do is fix a bad ground for my pillar pod gauges. Would also like to make a few test passes at the local track to make sure everything is working right.

    Tranny Rebuild

    Looks like I will have to rebuild my transmission this year. It is the same one I have been running since 2006, so I guess I have gotten my money's worth from this one. Hope to start on it next weekend! Fingers crossed!

    way too much to do here...

    I have so much to do around here that I have no idea as to what will get done. Some of it is out of my hands and some is just getting the time to work on it.. The one car is without a current heart and the builder said it should be done this next week if things go right... If that is a no go then it will be bring the back up car and hope it stays together... That one has been a bit of a pain of late... Oh well I just got done painting the headers and next it is blasting the engine bay and getting it ready to paint....Rich
    Too many cars,too little time to drive them. Anything less than 500 cubes is a small block. If you slow down in life you will get run over..

    I just have to fast forward a year to build up some vacation time at the new job. The honeymoon will be claiming every vacation day I'll earn this year. The car needs nothing more than a wash...was just beating on it yesterday as a matter of fact.

    The important part of them hitting is that they have to do it only at WOT otherwise it won't work right.... Now to do that you need those super rods that are adjustable. The new ones are radio control so you can adjust them when you are going down the track.... Matter of fact Dwayne has a set he is trying to see or give away at the next shoot out......Rich

    Yes, just take a guess at what class you will be running in when you register. After time trials and prior to qualifying pass you will have the opportunity to switch classes. All that will be covered in the Driver's meeting.
