Drag Racing Tech - Whats the best a 10 bolt could handle
12-03-2010, 12:26 PM
Just curious where my limitation is gonna be..With a 6-speed car?
Ive gotta Detroit locker in it but its still only 7.5"
-What have you run 60' times?
-What do you launch at?

I have a 4K stall and built 4l60e and my 10 bolt has held up to a 1.51 60'
I know you have a 6 speed though and those are generally harder on ten bolts

yeah thats what im wondering.. I went 1.80 and 1.87 60ft. last night on 26x10x15 et drags..Never made a full pass the track seemed slick just after the launch area..Or it could have been me not being used to full slicks wobbling down the track..then 2nd gear went out on me.. time to upgrade all internals on the t-56...but the rear sounded good at that, Not completely dumping the clutch, Next time out it should go into the 1.7's..

If your a full weight car then it just a matter of time if your a light weight car then it will last a little longer...but it will break .Autos seem to have a better life span then 6 spd cars. On aside note a stock 10 bolts seem to last me about 2 race seasons running 1.48-1.51 60 fts. I'll be switching to a 12 bolt over the winter months .

Im mostly stock weight..minus a couple little things the previous owner pulled..Im starting to look into a 9" cause I know im on a limited time span with this rear.. but was just wondering how hard ppl abuse them an how long they've lasted?
Thanks for the input though.. Its all greatly appreciated.

I've done 60's and 70's here time and again

Ever since the converter I've been in the 1.6xs with my best being 1.60. We will see next year when it leaves on the gun.
