I’m your huckleberry
for rwd cars traction become the linear speed limiting factor- most half mile event s wont let you do a true burn out- and the surface is un- prepped- so a car that traps 150 at a 1/4 mile on a prep surface even with a not perfect 60 foot will have issues cracking 176 or so. The stocker the converter if a auto the better. stock converter I was running 139 in the 1/4 on a prepped surface and would go 170 in the half - added a converter and about 80 rwhp(cams and heads)car lost 100 lbs in weight) trapping 150 in the qtr. mile and only get 175's out of it in the half mile ( was very discouraging) It takes about a solid 925+ rwhp and good traction in a 3600 pound car to break 180.
Thanks man, that makes sense.
Do you lock the converter at the track of either 1/4 or 1/2?
I can see the auto car with a converter swap having more issues than a clutch car.
no it wasn't locking to the top of the lock up limit in 3rd gear- would of had less traction issues for sure but was running my standard 1/4mile set up tune- car didn't shift to 4th till around 156.
Well, next time you go let me know. Me and my crew go to Milan often and want to try 1/2 mile.
Been having meets at Meijer on Alexis Rd exit on Friday and Saturday nights too.
Are you interested in the new 2020?
Wind resistance increases exponentially above 150 MPH!!
90 degrees is like a cool day in Alaska LOL .
