 we can load the car into the trailer and then lower the car down onto the chasis support in the trailer.

Cheers, Jon

for chassis support, do you use a bladder or something else?

Thanks for the reply, I was thinking of like a 6' bar between the digger and cart, I just wasn't sure how good it works or if there becomes any binding issues where it hooks to the dragster or if there would be to much movement with heim joints on both ends that could cause problems

From what I have seen the his are 90 def from each other.  One goes vertical and the other horizontal.  So on the digger it would be horizontal. I'm gonna see where I can do this on mine.

great question, im debating both myself.  as mentioned the fast door car crowd likes the push bar setup.  i like the idea of smooth starts versus getting jerked etc. also, you dont have those blind people in staging lanes trippin over the tow strap.

From my experience with EFI and Meth, you have to look at the sensor and the controller and see what the minimum lambda they will read.  most 02 controllers will read down to about .70 lambda or 4.5 meth scale. reason why i bring this up is i talked to Moran one time when i had issues with his injectors and we were discussing 02's.  he told me that on his PM they are  about 3.9 meth scale.   he has been using the Big Stuff efi units for years and i guess BS has 02 add-on that will read that low.  they use the NTK sensors, i think they are the medical grade?  (guessing).. all i know is they are SPENDY...

my point in mentioning this is, i dont know what teh afr would be for meth on something like your going to run.  but, if it will be lower then 4.5 then need to look at the sensor AND the controller as not all controllers will automatically read lower then 4.5 afr on meth scale even if the sensor will.

im gonna guess that if your only make say 1500-2k hp then i doubt your AFR wont go below 4.5 meth scale. 

might look at AEM, Innovate, Altronics

Dean, i'm 45 miles from Sacramento. You're always welcome to leave your trailer, etc, at my place (secure 3 acres) if you wanna run back to back weekends @ sac, or whatever.

THanks Greg for the offer. will keep it in mind.

well, were going one anyways (cant miss MM :D ).  i just stated that as an option even if it is/was possible.  it would be Wednesday tnt only.  if worst came to worst, tow down the weekend before and do couple hits and leave the car there on-sight and come back Tuesday afternoon.. who knows.. maybe tow down weeks before if sac isnt open or rained out. its months out and will be here tomorrow.  we would test at sac anyways and id imagine could get the three in easy before then.

if its close, ill call.  i dont see if an issue if all i needed was one run.. just hypothicating options.

Drag Racing / 7.0 license category
« on: November 03, 2018, 02:47:19 PM »
what nhra license category would be for 7.0 pro?  would that be cat 3? and how many runs to go from sportsman to cat 3.  reading it, it seams like two full runs faster then 7.49.  i thought it was one full, one half, one 60? 

also, what category would i select of the ones listed in cat 3?

thank you

Dan Dishon's Transmission Den / sfi sticker on trans
« on: October 22, 2018, 06:03:23 PM »
does the sfi sticker have to be physically on the trans and bell housing?  when i got my trans, they just left them loose on a tag.  if so, whats a good way to ensure they will attach to the rough finish?


Roo Man's Room / Re: hole size versus width of material min/max ??
« on: October 21, 2018, 06:52:00 PM »
not sure it applies here,but most things read 1.5 times diameter of bolt from center. I think thats exact wording. Meaning if using 7/16 you have to have 7/16 material remaining after hole. So I took it anyway.

thank you,   i found some 3/16 x 2" strap in my stash ill use.

im adding weight bar straps to the chassis.  i think your supposed to use 1/2" bolts for securement.  i was planning on using some 1" x 1/8" strap.  this would leave 1/4" at edges.  what is legal or what would be recommend to safely do this.

thank you

Its basically STP...  an oil additive.  I am unfamiliar with the brand so i couldnt say how good it is..

Ages ago, when gas was 14 cents a gallon...  oil was oil and gas was gas (period).

People started adding stuff (STUFF) being everything we take for granted today. Like multi weight high temp detergent etc etc.

Sometimes people think their oil or fuel needs more stuff, and you can buy more stuff... most isnt snake oil.  The stuff really does work. Caveat: stuff is often a little goes a long way and afterwards returns diminish or make things worse.

Example. 1 can of stuff to 7 qts oil are fine.

12 cans to a half quart of oil... boom.  Well boom or call it full synthetic and charge triple for it. 😁

I worked for a place that did custom oil and fuel blending for a while. They had giant steam heated vats for heating the oil prior to adding stuff.

They would blend and ship in tank trucks or package qts or gallons and private label. Box truck ship.

They were in business over a 100 years. Could longer compete with big box corp stuff.

thank you for your reply, STP i understand.. that makes sense to me when you said that. I just did not think of it in that fashion.

It's blown mechanical 426 kb block with those heads and littlefield 871.  The Edelbrock head is a good head for what we are doing. Just need to make prob 1200 or so for 7.0 guessing.  We figured if  my cast head vw could take/make 5.x lbs/cube hp that these could handle 3-3.5lb cube easily as they are far better then any vw cast head we've seen.

Thank you for all inputs. Keep em coming
