    i know I could have done much better...

    also, my passenger side front strut is broken, it makes a horrible sound when I wheel-hop... I have to replace it this week if possible...


    Thanks !!

    Nice job, its cool to see that you are sub 16 now when a while you were struggling to get down there. What mods do you have between now and your last track runs? You gotta make a nice time line for us!

    when i went down the track the first time, it sounded like a machine gun when I left the hole all through the 60ft ... but when i hooked up it stopped.. it only does it when i'm wheel hopping & it only does it on the front passenger side... anyway.. new strut for me ! LOL




    CTele... I'll work on it soon

    When I first installed my springs I had a problem with that bolt on the struts because I never alighned the washer on the other side of the spring housing correctly and there was a gap between the top of the strut shaft... so everytime I hit a bump, it would make a " clunk " sound. .. so I just tightened the F_ck out of it and it went away.. apparently that was not the best thing to do. lol

    Anyway, I cant be sure if that caused the damage or if it just wore out quicker due to the lowering springs or if its just because of the nasty road conditions i've put the car through ...

    Either way, I just have to change it. LOL

    Ford....

    what recent change do you think helped the most in getting you up to this point? I know recently you added the ignition system and did the linkage mod. anything else... and what did you run the last time....

    the only mods that I did that added any power since my last 1/4 mile run of 15.8 & 87 mph was the tuning of the obx cam sprocket & the installation of a CAI .

    the MSD box is also part of this package but I have not dynoed the car with it so I have no data on its performance specs...

    by the way, on the time slip that shows two cars (on the right) , it was a new lightning.. the guy didnt know how to launch it or something, because i beat him out of the hole and to the 60 foot mark.. after that it was game over for me.. but it was fun as hell smoking him out of the hole !!!

    LOL
