Some links to runs on day 4...
« on: September 17, 2015, 09:59:44 PM »
Here's a few of the links available from the live feed replay. Unfortunately, a lot was lost due to live streaming issues, this is all I could find.

Alan's run. I think his car runs really darn well. It surprised me the ET's he consistently gets.

Luckily, they got all of Kevin's runs.
His first run.

Kevin's second run.

Kevin's third run.

Funny they mentioned how he cruises along at 35mph with his gearing :)  What size tires do you run on the cruise, Kevin?

Maybe I missed it somewhere, but what trans is in Kevin's Shelby?

Does anyone also know who's Cougar at 27:50 and what powerplant?

Kevin's GT500: Is that a 2x4V motor or a 4V?..........The looks of motor does not look to have carb "packed in" in front under air cleaner yet it has a two stud filter cover?
Love the car and how Kevin runs it.
Like to see all the specs?

I raided the LT 235/75R-15 tires from my old Bronco to use on the rear, 29" tall. Tallest I could fit. I'm running a C6, no overdrive and 4.56:1 gears with a spool. Not the brightest plan I admit, but I didn't want to give up any ET in hopes of making it into the top 32 and the run off.  The motor is not liking to be spun over 2500 down road for any length of time while running on pump premium, so I'm taking it easy. They haven't kicked me off the freeway yet  ;) Only need to make it from the hotel to the track now, crossing my fingers nothing stupid happens. The details of my car are in the drag strip results section. Main thing different is yes, I put the original C7ZX 2-4V intake and BJ/BK carbs back on last summer - yeah, another great idea just before Dragweek lol.

Kevin, what intake did you have on it before, and did it improve or hurt over the BJ/BK set-up?

That's the only way to do it.  I drive mine some and put 4.11s in it for that - but not enough really, so going back with 4.56s in the off season.  Leaving the DL in the car for the little bit of street.  My 302 doesn't mind 3200~3400 down the road, but it's the trans that starts to warm with my 4200 stall converter.

Previously I had the police interceptor manifold that came with the current 428 that I purchased from Steve P. who is riding along with Jay this year. It had been port matched. Before that I ran a HM medium riser 1-4v on my other 428. At this point there really isn't much different performance wise, car runs about the same, but I haven't had a chance to fine tune the carbs yet, although I wouldn't expect large gains. My opinion is at my relatively mild horsepower level I'm not taking advantage of the potential the medium riser 2-4v manifold has. If I had another 100 HP there'd probably start to show a difference. That pretty much agrees with what Jay found dyno testing intakes for the book, the good ones made similar power ( at my level ) it's the bad intakes you need to avoid.

I'd agree - I ran a tunnel ram on my mild 302 in the drag car last year for a while.  As opposed to the normal 650 DP/air gap setup.  Lost a little bit of 60' time (dual Edelbrock 600s on top) but picked up no MPH, nor lost any.  But it was fun to run it.  If the underside was a 347 or 363 with a roller cam instead of a bitty hydro flat tappet, then it'd make a big difference.
