Entered my first No Bull event in the "True Street" class. This is a drag radial/street legal radial class and you can basically have anything done to the car. Man what a lot of fun and damn there were some BADAZZ rides out there. All fast as **** too. Surprisingly OSW was hooking. I couldn't believe it.
My car ran alright. The tune is way off, its running pig rich at idle and the hot start sucks. On the upper end it doesn't feel like its pulling as hard. I know I need a BAP. Need someone to tune this beast right! I tuned the suspension as best as I could but without seeing our timeslips I couldnt tell how hard i was coming out. I'm sure i had a high 1.58 run on one of them.
In the first round I ran a 78 malibu with what I think had a 500 hp 383 and a bottle on it. car sounded goooood. anyway i get up to the line and prestage. the malibu guy stages and then deep stages and then goes right thru the beams but for some reason they didn't redlight him. they let him back up and guess he wasn't ready or something and I was watching my light the whole time the guy sent us off and it looked like the malibu either wasn't ready or was sleeping cause i was gone and he was far far behind. couldn't believe i won my first round AND didn't break my tranny or rear.
I actually made it to the second round, then I had to run the infamous pink Mustang from Jacksonville. That fucken car put a fucken football field on me, it was hilarious.
I talked to the owner, this guy named Tony, he said the best time that car has gone was a 8.7 @ 158.
BTW the car has a 515 cu in motor with a 500 shot on it!!
I knew I was gonna worked, I just didn't know how badly LOL. Hey if I'm going to lose that's the way i want to lose!!
I hotlapped the car and ran it again this time to get a timeslip. My motor was totally heat soaked at this moment , I kept it running most of the time i was in the pits. I actually caught a 1.60 60 foot on my 17 in drag radials. Ahh well, the car runs good but damn it don't like the heat and humidity.
All in all it was good fun and look forward to doing it again..
It was insanely hot, I mean teetering between 85-90 degrees with nearly 90% humidity. I could not stop sweating. My car ran decent. Gotta lose the heavy 18 in wheels up front and run some skinnies and then put my 15 in wheels with the MT's on and get me som 10's! I know the car has some 10's in it with a fix up of the tune and maybe some not so humid weather.
It was good meeting all the ls1tech regulars out there including Paula and her husband, Jason, Tim, Eric and Dave.
We gotta get an ls1tech race down here!
i think I know what I want to throw on as my next mod.
