3.55 gears/posi made it come alive.
I pulled up to a stop light, in the left turn lane was a chevell.
Jacked up in the back w/ big tires. He was all over my car, giving me the thumbs up.
Racked his pipes, so I hit neutral and them new mufflers go.
He hit his clutch like he wanted to go.
So I jacked mine up against the foot brake.
He's a young kid with a shat eating grin, probably a 4 or 5 or 6 speed
and a big block. But he's jammed up in the left turn lane.
When the green hit I nailed it, she spun both tires about 4-5 feet
and hooked up. Woof, thats what I expected when I started this build.
It should launch harder than that at the track Sunday, I'm hoping to get under
2 second 60 ft. times. Pretty sure it will, and I can lower tire pressure if needed.
All the planning, reading, blood, sweat and tears but posi-traction and the right set of gears
woke it up. Now I'm thinking 4.56 are too low, haven't put that one together yet, see what happens this weekend.
Now I've got serious doubts about the 1.66 I got on that time slip.
pulled the 3.36 carrier out, pulled the posi
from that and put it in the 3.55, and back in car
tires on in am and test drive.
received 4.56 gears and posi, that should wake up my 60ft times.
Might be able to get that in before the track closes for winter.
Friday Took a trip over the pass, lost no coolant going over.
1 1/2 qt. low on the way back. Can't find the leak yet.
It didn't mix with the clear water in catch jug.
Sat got a stainless clamp on an exhaust joint that was loose.
Finally cleared up that rattle.
Got up early sun, headed for drag strip.
No one there, a guy on a street sweeper said they raced sat.
I called, sunday was cancelled, must not be getting big enough turn out.
So I took that time to cut out chery bombs and clamp in Thrush turbos.
Sound great, but can tell the back pressure. I'll put the cherry bombs on
for next sunday.
Car up on blocks today, going to put the posi on the 3.55 gears
3.36 too tall.
Did some reading and experimenting on upholstery cleaning.
The bench seat I put in is killing my back, got some buckets.
But some mug with greasy hands threw dirty parts in the wreck.
What I found to work, blast of brake cleaner, vacuum, blast of
resolve, steamer then vacuum.
Rear gears tomorrow when it's cooler.
