I've never been there but it's really sad to see another historical dragstrip shutting down.

Drag racing is at risk of becoming an endangered sport. It's boring to watch, and to a point, boring to race.

That these drift events are continuing while drag racing is shutting down is an interesting gauge of the state of motorsports in America in 2018.

Isn't ironic that as drag racing practically eliminated tire smoke, the popular sport of the day is clouded with tire smoke? I'm for one totally against track treatment. In my opinion, it doesn't matter how fast you go, what matters (for driver and audience satisfaction), is how you go.

I get more chills watching this short video clip more than watching any modern Top Fuel doing a pass:

Those a  band clamps in the 4 size are difficult to find also, or at least they are for less than $100 ea.
R.G. Ray clamps (top tier manufacturer) can be found on eBay for much less than that.

Yes you will see pulsing, but that can be even out by inputting the correct frequency that the sensor is designed for. I don't know about other systems, but we use an early version of the Edelbrock QuikData (Serial #0014) which allows you to adjust the frequency.

While I am comfortable using this system, I would recommend an RPM Performance Data Logger because it is cost effective and the after sales service is outstanding.
What would cause the fuel pressure pulses? Pump impeller?

We drilled and tapped the plug on the distribution block at the back of the Enderle Hat for the same reason 32bantum did.

i talked to guy this weekend and asked about FP sensor location.  i asked about the distribution block. he said that his data log showed a lot of fluctuation here.  i think they do as 32bantam does. 

do you see any fluctuations on your logs if you have a logger?   im guessing it might be pulses from cylinder fill.  idk, just a guess.  you would think there would be consistent pressure there but that distribution block is feeding 8 cyl so could be some pulsing maybe


Mechanical constant flow fuel injection... I expect no pressure pulsing.

Cool beans Bill, thanks for sharing the results. I guess you need to update your Your Best Time in your avatar  8)

It'll take self control to stop at 12%... another prospective candidate joining the Nitroalcoholics Anonymous group soon...  ;D

Did the engine get to sound a little different with the 12% nitro blend?
