Ok... went to one of the local tracks for opening day... so there was some good news and some bad news...
First the bad news... The place was packed! I should have known better but.... The track was also very slippery... Lots of guys with DR's were having a hard time hooking... including yours truly!!! It just plain sucked! LOL! My best 60' was a disappointing 2.1... best ET was a 13.5... was hoping for something a LOT better!
Now the postive points from today... First off.. the motor didn't mind the extra 25HP! The motor pulled hard and sounded great! I had noticed in the past that sometimes the car would stutter a bit when the N20 would first hit... I believe now I was probably getting some misfires... well I put in a set of iridium plugs last week and gapped them down to 35. No more stuttering!!
For the first time I got lined up against 2 cars that weren't 10 second cars!!! well to day was my lucky day!! 1st pass I was up against and older (pre 99) GT... 2nd pass I was up against a GMC Canyon... both of them went down... LOL! Kind of fun having a car in the mirror for a change!
I also got some cool video footage... My brother went with me.. He videoed the car from the stands... I've always taped my car from down by the starting line... but this time it's me driving... Interesting thing... by taping from the stands you can actually hear my car! Normally I've always ended up just hearing the cars behind mine doing a burnout... If you listen to the video you can hear my car roaring down the track! LOL! Of course you can also hear the BIG SQUEAL as my tire spin when the spray hits!! LOL!
And finally I broke my own rule... I tried spraying on the street... LOL! I had to show my brother how the Zex worked... so we found some back roads with no traffic... did a couple of launches... couple of sprays from a roll... The 1st one from roll the car jumped so hard my brother about dropped the camera! LOL! My brother was very impressed!!! His jaw dropped a couple of times... then he was trying to figure out how he could put N20 on his big V-10 Dodge Ram! LOL!
All in a great day... car is home in one piece!!
Ok.. this video was a bit bigger so I decided to put it on StreetFire...
