    Thanks! And another update for you guys...

    We both ran at the 1/8th yesterday. He added E85 in place of the 93 he was running in the video and had his 295/55/17 MT ET Street IIs on Weld Racing wheels and ran 7.65 on the redone track here (traction is a little tough so far)

    I went while still on my 3.6 pulley and 93 octane (no mods from our previous race) and ran a 7.75 on my 285/35/19 Continental DW street tires.
    Then I went back today with same mods still and ran a 7.62

    I have a 3.33 torque booster setup going on Monday. Also planning on buying 3.15 rear gears. They will allow me to go like 109 in the 1/8th on a 28" radial at 7k RPM. Is that a good idea or should I stick with 3.27s

    Running in to problems now though with my passenger side valve cover leaking oil from the bottom of the cover at all the bolt holes. Made a thread about it, hopefully I can get that solved. I don't want to run it hard again until I figure out why it's doing that.

    So he ran drag radials with a turbo and ran a 7.65?!? My NA times were better then that my first time at a track in the 1/8th. I can see your time on street tires but his times aren't adding up to me, is he blowing the tires off and spinning down the track?

    Could be because the paxton started in 3rd and the tvs car in 2nd :shrug:

    Could be the same paxton car that beat an on3 car. :burn:

    Hope these cars pick up a ton on the big end because these 1/8 times are not impressive

    Street tire on mine, I'm confident I'd be a high 6 with a slick. Less so with torque booster setup. It's also a freshly redone track and traction is horrible right now. It'll get better once more rubber gets down lol

    M6 problems. My auto with only a tune and DR, full weight and no other mods was going in the 7s it's first time out in the 1/8th lol.

    I expect your trap speed was wicked for a 7.7 though.
