I guess I tried to squeeze a little too much out of the lights when I red lit
First run in the 74 Dart Sport ever on Saturday and I was ready to give up going to the track anymore because it ran like crap for what it is, putting down a 14.2 @ 94.8
After that pass I pulled the hood and found one of the garbage Summit Racing plug wires had fallen off so I ended up tie wrapping it so it wouldn't fall of again. I should know by now not to try and cheap out on aftermarket parts.
Next pass was a little better 13.01 @101.10 followed by a 12.95 @106.39 on a qualifier for the 12.90 index.
I could hear the engine rattling it's brains out on the 89 octane fuel so I pulled 3 degrees of timing thinking it would probably slow down but pedaling it to stay a fender ahead of the other competitor during eliminations it ran too quick 12.77 @ 104 lifting. I'm still short shifting it so I think there is at least a 12.50 in it.
My next trip to TMP should be July 5th.
Nice job Keith
Considering it was your first time out with the car, I'd say that's pretty respectable times. Well once you had 8 cylinders working lol
That's a nice ride
I can't wait to finally get mine to the strip and get a baseline as well. Hopefully I get my new trans,scattershield,flex plate and torque converter in the car tomorrow and should have it ready to go in a couple weeks.
My driveshaft is supposed to be ready this week
, just have to hook up my line lock, install a monster tach, run new brake lines on the rear diff and bleed system. And I have to upgrade my alternator for my new rad with electric fans. I have all the parts, it's just finding the time to do the work lol
Really excited to drive mine this season, should be a different animal than it was last year lol
Thanks again Keith for running your truck. Look forward to having a few races with our old cars sometime this summer.
Hopefully you don't tree me so bad when I have a gas pedal that actually responds to input lmao
