Default Woodsman's new times

Well guy's I went back to the track and run a little better than before. I got to make one pass and it went 60' 1.52 1/8th 6.30 @ 114.81 so I have made a big improvement in my programing. I was going for my 2nd run and both floats stuck and flooded my engine out. So will have to work on my fuel system now. Also I am running a new Pro hat from Steve Morris and did not blow any gaskets. Anyway had a good time and feel alot better about it all now.

Always wondered how you ran 112 mph and only 7 something E.T.

Figured there was a ton left in there.

wow !! made up a full second and only 2 mph...yes lord yes ,that thing has a bunch in it.....if i would have to guess your pass went like this..you
left the line either spun or took it real easy,,,half way down the track you felt better about it and pressed the gas on down..the nova got to strolling and you either ran out of track or backed off.....either way your 330 mark it was pulling...i,'m i close ?


congrats..Brian

Well it went kinda like this. I was thinking all big till I got up to the stageing lanes and there was a oil down that had to be cleaned up.So the butterfly's got a little larger like the size of buzzards so I changed my plan to no converter on the trans brake and just took off from an idle and I think I let off a little before the 1/8th and coasted to a 11.07 @ 77 mph 1/4 mile. Well one thing is for sure I am bring the numbers down each time I get to the track.

Haven't you ever run the car in the 1/4?? Not trying to be smart,but I see alot of guys 1/8th miling it. I only ran my cars 1 time in the 1/8th. Felt rather strange as well. That was in fairmont WVa about 15 years ago. Matter of fact it was in my 73 Gran Sport,which I just put back on the street. I didn't do too well either..
