Hurt Motor=Quickest Run EVER !??
didn't get him in shape for friday at the track, but i took the Tinman out to Alaska Raceway Park saturday and sunday to air him out. remember: one cylinder is 28 psi low on compression test compared to the others. cylinder wall scoring confirmed, but no other damage visible via borescope. well, none that I visibled. don't know why my 60 foot times are so crappy, as i was launching with more revs than ever and i just went back to 16/46 sprockets.
i now believe that due to my nitrous nozzles being so far back from the intake ports, on the "wrong side" of the throttle plates, that nitrous jetting which would normally be a 65 shot are giving more like 35-40 horspower. after all the changes i've made, i just can't get more than 134 mph in the quarter, and that means i'm at my horsepower peak. believe me i can tell you all that between seat of the pants and looking at my plugs, whatever mix i'm running right now, and have been running other than the few runs that i got sloppy and melted spark plugs last month, is being "carbureted" as nicely as it can.
anywhoo, here's the time slips that i liked best this weekend.
