Re: Crash at Sundays TNT 2/18/18

Broke suspension was one guess, but drag vehicles are not rated on a skid pad, but maybe should be. A low number, and the ET and MPH would be limited. Doggy rail. Rack and pinion steering, 4 link, and big spongy tires, with no anti sway bars, can result in a side to side bounce, a loss of control, a...

Re: 12 bolt

I have had, 3700lb 13.20 Mopar, break the 8 3/4 rear end every 4 passes. I now have lighter cars. The racers do things, to help the drive line last. Taller gears, loose conv, and bigger cam, for less low end torque. At 2,500 stall, with a 4,500 conv, the torque peak comes in, outside the stage beams...

Damper pulley bolts

What size bolts, are used on the 350 Chev Vortec crate motor, damper pulley? They seem to be 9x1.00 which are hard to find.
What is the size, and where can I buy them?

Helmet

I have had ear surgery, and it will take several months before the ear is healed.
The rules say, that a helmet is not required, if the dial, is less than 8.50 on the 8th. Does this still hold?

Re: NEED HELP GUYS

I talked to a racer at the Mopar meet, that had a problem with misfire, above 5k rpm, under load. Low gear, and poor traction on the street, is not much of a load. With the inductive type pickup, in the dist, one misfire, can lead to another, and another, so, just as long as the first one, does not ...

Re: NEED HELP GUYS

Ok, so much for plan a, now odds wise, it is b.
If the problem happened, out of the clear blue sky, and nobody messed with the motor, and the problem happens above a certain
rpm, it is an inner broken valve spring.
You would not want to know, about plan c.

Re: NEED HELP GUYS

It may not be fixed, and these type of problems can be hard to figure out. It is firing, good, but to the wrong cyl, bad. Plug wires can short out, one to another. Moisture in the cap, can carbon track, and cause the wrong cyl, that is not under comp, to fire. The gap, between the reluctor, and the ...
