Who's going? I know we have a few guys here from cali.
Love to go but its too deep of a drive and I got too many irons in my fire right now lol
I grew up in Fresno - left in '89. Went to Famoso many times with uncle when growing up - great memories. Might hit Ennis (Dallas) for the Fall Nationals this year.
i'm leaving to go camping that day or i'd probably go
Damn, Well Ill be there grinding 3rd all night lol. Im aiming for mid to low 14's if 3rd catches (gm synchro already in there).
Ill post pics and vids If all goes well. too bad you guys arent going, would like too meet you guys.
Thats that guy you were talking about in my other thread right? Im planning on rebuilding my tranny and hitting this engine with a 100 wet shot.
Fresno is alright, lots of interesting people here. Nice, really want to start going to the track this year and get off the street lol.
Yeah.....thats my buddy that past away. We had my old stock front springs in the back of the CRX. It sat up so effing high in the back. Stupid now but tons of guys were doing that back then. 13.3 with a CRX Si D16 and my custom ram air made out of irrigation piping and two pantie hoses for filters! Little retardation of the timing and some colder plugs. That motor never blew! Sold it before that happened lol He must have had 40+ runs on a direct wet shot.
Little giggle juice for your teggy soon? Cool....
Are you rebuilding your trans yourself? If so...let me know how it goes
you plan on going out there again?? i'll go any other time but this weekend, plus its gonna be hot this weekend and i dont think i could stand out there.. lol
aww sorry to hear about your buddy.
ha ha thats funny, a lot of people did crazy things back then. aftermarket support wasnt all that great, had to make do.
Yeah my tuner said 100 wet shot wouldnt hurt it. do im gonna do it when I get some free cash.
Im no tranny expert but I have a buddy that offered me to do it for free. I need to get a LS 5th before i get it all done.
Yeah no kidding, Its hell of hot.
Probably next time arround Ill head out there. Never been to famoso. Any tips?
bring water... lol
i dont drag so no help from me.. lol..
I just remember the track being extra sticky (I was launching 300rpm higher)
lol yeah we will take water.
good thing its sticky, my tires suck and spin pretty easy.
If you're going to stay overnight via hotel, it's an armpit around the track, at least it used to be. North end of Bakersfield is ok, near hwy 58 and I-5 area. Ming exit.
best time was 15.2 at 92mph with zero launch. The track was rather slick. couldnt even get a 2k rpm launch in without it spinning the tires all of 1st and 2nd. Also chirped 3rd-4th.
I need sticky tires or LSD tranny lol
Im going back on the 23rd with my tri y's and no muffler Maybe Ill pick up better times.
Yeah....you should be in the mid-14's all day with that set up.
I have seen a dozen GSR's with 3-bolts hit 14.5-14.7 all day long and thats probably less whp than you have right now.
well took a closer look at the engine today and noticed that my cam timing might have been thrown off! FML I think my intake cam was set at +3 and now I see it at +6 or +7. It seemed like my top end was lagging on my second run and all after. Also noticed my header was smashed to shit (I wont let people borrow my car anymore).
when I install my Tri y's Ill have to redyno it for sure. Its only $40 but cash is hard to come by right now.
Ill have vids soon.
