16.73@ 79.09

This was the first outing with this setup
My 60' time 2.40 I'm sure can be improved with a good set of tires. The ones on the car are realy bad. They don't hook up at all.
The one problem I have is I'm running 14" and the selection is limited. I would rather not have to buy anther set of rims just to go to the track every once and a while.

Doug I noticed in your profile that you were running Cooper Cobra tires. Are those the tires you are running in the 14's with?
They do make a 14" in the size I want and might be what I looking for. What you can tell me about them.

Gene,

Nope, I'm running MT E/T streets this year. I've ran Cooper Cobras on my Mustang for years and they are a great, long lasting street tire but on the track they dont hook up at all. When I 1st got my aluminum head and was running in the mid to low 15's I had to replace the Coopers with some BFG Radial T/A's which hooked up a LOT better! Then last year when I was running in the 14.70 range the traction went away and I had to upgrade to my current tires.

I'f your looking for a good street/strip tire I would go with the BFG's. I am running 15" tires on mine for the past 3 years though so I dont know what kind of selection they have on 14" tires.

Ran 16.01 at 85 mph today - August 1 , 2009 .. I can feel the car pulls harder with this direct mount 2 barrel Holley carb. I managed to cut a .115 light , most were in high .200 reaction times.

it was purty hot at the track today... the car should pick up more with cooler temps and more tune

Several problems came up in this tune and test session. The main failure being a broken throttle cable after a jet change in the pit. :mrgreen:

ah yes.. check list. Like buying gasoline for the Falcon and bring ALL the tools in the tool box.

We had a trailer tire blow out about 4 miles from the house... I just drove home at a slower pace.


The weekend did not go great but the car did pick up 3+ tenths

hi,

OK.. new best time is 15.808 at 86.2 mph

last weekend we had our problems, yet the car went faster.

This weekend I remembered gasoline for the Falcon, I had all the tools in my track box, I fixed the throttle cable, and 2 new tires on my car trailer.

I had my 1962 Falcon to Speedworld today. The car has run in the 15.7s twice today. 15.78 and 15.79

The rear gear was changed to a 4.62 from the previous 4.11

I tweaked on the Holley 2 barrel a little, that did not seem to help. The front plugs still look lean. I found the float level low, got that raised up. I jetted up the front jet of the carb ( sit sideways on engine) to a #80 from a #76. Rear jet is #76 now

Also raised the pressure into the carb a fuzz over 5 psi.. previously it was set at 4.5 psi

At the track I had trouble getting my timing lite to work on the timing marks. Previously it had worked fine, need to check that out at home

Since it was much warmer now, the car may really have picked up more than indicated

Well you are kind of sounding like one...a 250 street driven motor with the restrictive log head in a 2800 lb car with no power adders that runs in the 15's is pretty respectable in my book.

I owned a 302 V8 Grabber just like Genes. I added a 4-speed toploader trans and a 500 2V. It ran 16.1 at the strip.

One timeslip in the hand to me is worth a hundred future performance predictions.
Scratch that.
A thousand.

I'm sure someone on this forum will save and resurect this post at the appropriate time.

Good to see Gene try the larger carb. We chatted many months back about the 500 cfm Holley I run on my 200 cid engine. He was surprised by the larger carb and jets I run on the engine.

I do run my 200 a bit harder than Gene's 250 with my rear gear at 4.63 currently. I shift at 5600 RPM and run through the traps with the shift lite on

No, it wasn't. I found that any linkage mount points that I wanted to use had been cut off so I just decided to bite the bullet and buy a brand new carb. I still have the one I bought from you.

1970 ford mav grabber. swapped to a 302. 8.75-1 compression, headers, performer rpm intake, pro comp 180 cc heads ,lunati cam 270 ,edelbrock 600 cfm carb. ,3.55 rear gears, mini spool ,traction bars, c-4 tranny rebuilt myself with kevlar bands and red clutches and new servos ,stock shocks and suspension except 1" lowered front springs. best time was 14.70 at 78 mph lol ran 1/8 @ 75mph at 9.35. had oil pan leak and somewhere around the 1/8 mile looked in rear view mirror and saw nothing but smoke (scared me to death) let off gas coasted a while then maintained my speed. so really no clue.

That 9.35 equates to a 14.40 - 14.60 quarter mile e.t. if you had run it all the way out.

lmao yea according to the calculators! thats what they say but they dont take into account my tire size, rear gears, rpm range, transmission gears ,traction ,hp ,torque, stall converter,transbrake, turbo, supercharger or nitrouse! I know trust me I cant wait to try run again get a true time. But I ran the 1/8 mile at 75 mph and finished the 1/4 at 78 if that tells anything or not.Its been driving me crazy too by the way cus thats what everyone tells me! Iunderstand the doubt because thats what I would say honestly!lol my car runs a lot faster at higher rpm also lower gears as you can see.There is no way I could only gain 3 mph in a full 1/8 mile. it dont add up. I believe she should be closer to a 13.5 my opinion.

It takes into account the gross vehicle weight, the horsepower delivered to the rear wheels...

...and PHYSICS.
