improve 60' times
 
i want to at least hit a 1.9 60' at the tracks. i currently hit 2.1. What mods would support me to where i want to be??

26" mickey tompson DR
3000 stall TC from edge racing

CAI airaid
muffler delete
underdrive pulley ATI
superchips 93 performance tune
mech fan delete.

Maybe some front runners?
thanks..

top 2 together will do it... altho it appears you have good transition during launch, you could also remove front sway bar which enhances transition..

sorry fred i forgot to mention that those mods i listed are my current mods i already have. So the next thing to do would be to removed the front sway bar?

That's a huge jump in 60ft times that you're looking for. I'm thinking the next step would be a power adder since the small slick you're running has already changed the gearing a bit. Just out of curiosity, are you staging shallow or deep?

Darkknight3829 12-18-2012 02:09 PM

ok i would probably be happy with a 2.0 60'. And i stage shallow. Last time was very shallow haha. I havent tried to deep stage yet. Last time at the track my best cut 60' was 2.110.

ah..I see. Do you spin at all? At this point, without adding anything else, do you track trim? remove weight? front sway, tailgate and spare removal? seats? haven't see what the pulley setup looks like but can you do a shortbelt?

chefred112 12-18-2012 03:22 PM

do you stall up at all? I found thru testing that leaving from a dig netted me better times than stalling up a little due to tq management..

Darkknight3829 12-18-2012 03:36 PM

I stall to about 2500 when I launch. I have not tried leaving from a dig, that means no stall right? I don't spin at all, I hook up pretty good, when i do spin is when I remove my tailgate and spare. That's when I will get a little spin. I haven't removed my front seats YET neither have I the front sway bar. YET. Yes the short belt mod is possible on my engine, it's something that I've looked into before. I just need to find the length I would need and find the belt.

chefred112 12-18-2012 03:59 PM

yea you want to start lightening up the load...the sway bar will help a little when you remove tailgate/spare...your leaving some on the table by not trimmin, you develop skills as you run at a lighter weight and try not to spin...

Darkknight3829 12-18-2012 04:44 PM

Alright, thanks that's something ill take into consideration, I plan a track trip in feb. on nitrous, ill hopefully have the short belt mod along with the removal of front sway bar, tailgate, &spare. Also passenger side seat. I can't wait. Any staging tips?
