uneedmorethen10s i had the slicks, so i figured id try it, the slick is a littel taller and the car liked it, the motor is out of it now anyways for the new 555 going into it. and why waste my street tires, they only last mayb 20 passes, you have to bake'm to get them work...and your right the street tire and slick produced almost the same 60foots but if the slick is fasterthen use it, i cant use the transbrake with the slick either...

o we also put new spring and shock s on the rear, i have the new adjustable qa-1's in it and i havent really tuned with it yet, but i dont expect to see much out of it, the car is 3526 w/o driver and 3807 with driver, so its no fly weight

1BAD80 Nice picture of the car with the wrinkle wall street tires.
Dude you have something major wrong with that setup.
Your running on street tires,
Quote: -11.38 at 117.7 , and on slick's, 11.21 at 118.6 ,
the pic is with the street tires.

Why even use the slicks for the time gained since the motor can't turn the tire's into smoke.
Something's not right as I read into it.

4 Jaw Chuck Resize the photo or increase the JPEG compression.

troy-curt How about posting some pictures of your car.
I like to admire lots of good engineering

10-17-2003 07:34 AM
uneedmorethen10s sorry about the spelling, the car is prostreet, it has a 12bolt, with a strange spool, billet caps, richmond gears, moser 35splines, heavy duty yoke, and the TA adjustable cover, the tranny was a FB (th400 with the super rare screw for the center support to make it stronger) unit that me and my father went over again at our tranny shop, we put in blue line clutches, kevlar bands, reverse manual valve body, and we have a set of planetary gears for a box truck, they are straight cut and wine like a ***** and it also has our other special tricks with a superbell, it has a ladderbar(all fresh heiman joints and track locater) with qa1 coilovers, and the whole nine yards, the front and back are completely tied together and it has a 10point car to the Frame, the car and drivetrain wil handle it.

and for the motor it is a 555 10.5:1, Dart 360 with a heavy port and polish job, merlinII block Callie's magnum pro crank, crower buillet rods, JE pistons, gapless rings, and a comp cam solid roller, .270 @.50 duration and the lift is around .720 i dont have the cam card infront me, jesel shaft rocker, it has a ported and potmatched 4500series victor junor with a chuck nuytten dominator that is in the mail as i type this.

minesblown imho you might wanna save the money for tranmissions and rearends with that kind of hp and usage. just my .02
10-16-2003 11:28 PM
troy-curt That`s a lot of horses for a 10.5:1 engine. I`m running two different 502s using 454 radiators with no heating problems.

I have a 355 SB 12.0:1 that dinos 500+ with a griffin 4 core in a 69 camaro, with no heating problems.

190 is a normal operating temperature.

Griffin will make what ever you want.
And so will USA radiators also custom builds radiators.

uneed, please use the spell check, it will make reading your post easer, thanks.

uneedmorethen10s Yeah i know, i am cutting it close the motor is 10.5:1, but i am gunna have to try it, if not the becool is rted for another 100hp, if not i guess i will have to search around for a place that will make a custom monster one for me, or some other kidn of cooling trick.
10-16-2003 06:07 PM
lluciano77 You can never have too much radiator. That is like saying you have too much brakes. Keeping your temp down is very important if you are running higher compression. When you are above 10.5:1 compression and you are running too hot, you are opening the door to detonation.
10-16-2003 03:51 PM
uneedmorethen10s yeah i know this is going to be a street car...fri nite sat nite cruiser, sun race car i dont really go far with it, and i only take it out at night so the traffic dies down, las night it was prob 55-60 degress and the car hit 170 cruisn at a light it hit 190........o and to that first reply, no it oesnt have a built in cooler, we mouted a huge external one outside the radiator support.

poncho62 I don't see that the size of the rad has anything to do with anything.....
The cooling of the rad depends on how long you plan on running this motor. Top fuel dragsters (6000hp) have NO rad at all.
