been a while since i updated this but here goes. earlier this year with the same setup and mickey thompson drag radials i hit my best time to date. here's my story:
so for months and months i've been searching for 11's. are a few 12.1's and 12.2's i was gonna give up and wait til i take my piston only motor out and put my fully built motor in. well we had import faceoff and my lil bro talked me into goin. i couldnt get radials mounted in time so i was just gonna run on my **** street tires content to run subpar times. i got to the track and another friend was there with a set of mickey thompsons for me. my first 2 runs sucked @$s 12.5 and 12.4 with 2.0 60' , my next run i lowered tire pressure and ran 12.3. i went back and dropped pressure with a tire gauge this time and got it to 18psi. i went out and did my best john force impersonation and lit the tires up. staged came up on 2 step and bang you could hear and feel the difference in the mickeys. 1.8 60' 12.133 @114.3 mph. i was happy because i beat my previous best of 12.180 but still wondering what i had to do to get in the 11's. i noticed throughout the day that i was only running 15 psi instead of 18 so i turned it up a lil to get my full 18 psi. i also dropped tire pressure again to 16 psi.
now that i've accomplished my goal of an 11 sec daily driver its on to the next goal of 10.9's. i'll be adding a 100 wet shot of n2o to get the mph i need to do this. also the fully built top to bottom motor is going in before the next ifo (import faceoff) in october. wish me luck.
