    Well after breaking 2 axles in a week, I finally got to make a couple of passes before
    getting kicked off the track. Like I said in the other post i knew it would be close but damn! I found out the car was heavier than i thought. 2220 with driver. Also a little hotter too. High 80's low 90's. Depending on what time of the night it was.
    As you can see the car hooks up well even with a open differential. (The 1.83 60 foot was with 12psi and the 1.75 60 foot was with 10 psi in the tires) Thanks to the slicks and solid radius rods. I am gonna have put the car back in the garage for a while, work has got me spread a little thin. By then it will have cooled down and I can hit my 12's. Hey Brian is that bet still on? Just Kidding. Anyways Just wanted to start a new thread as the old one kinda got out of hand.

    91 hatchback.
    LS/VTEC
    CTR pistons
    CTR cams
    JG valve springs and cam gears(You get what you pay for, the gears suck)
    Port match ITR manifold and throttle body.

    VAFC
    Custom cross member
    15x8x22 mickeys on 99 Si rims
    Pretty basic. Oh yea track elavation is aprox..1200 feet.


    No doubt, I may have to do the "Subway" diet. That and its crazy hot here right now. It was 104 on Monday. Crazy Arizona Weather.


    I would love too, but the whole idea was to prove you could go pretty fast, for not a whole bundle of cash. Maybe later. The Quaiffe couldnt hurt E.T.s either.




    Thanks bro.

    My best pull was 195.2 so I round up to 196. This was after the car was allowed to cool off due to the heat soak. But consistently 191 to the wheels with 137 foot pounds. I am using some B.S. EBAY Spoon chip. It really whacked out my timing. In order to make the power base timeing at idle is 0 degrees. Actually its less than that. but you cant read it. The car should not even run but it does. Because the timeing gun show aprox 2 to 3 degrees after TDC. Which would mean it fires on the exhuast stroke. WTF is that about? I need some Hondata or a standalone. But that a whole different story......

    that would mean it fires just after the power stroke right?, i.e. the piston is already on its way down.

    I understand that its fireing on the power stroke. So tell me how a car runs if you are trying to ignite after the compression stroke.. The car shouldnt even run.
    You know ---suck-squish-bang-blow. Again if you are trying to ingite on after bang which is whats happening.


    2 liter EG- I am sure your pretty heavy.. Cuz 13.01 at sea level is 12.84.
    What type of sixty foots do you get?



    The goal was 4 grand including the car, but i spent closer to 4500. But I didnt gut the car so i had to make more power and get better traction.



    Yea less weight is always better. Reaction time however have nothing to do with E.T. Besides i was messing with my home made 2 step.



    Sorry bro no, digital camera. I am stuck in the stone age. But i will try and scan a couple later.

    then did you mean 2 to 3 degrees BEFORE TDC? because if it is after TDC then it is power stroke.
    EDIT: now that i think about it, if it were before TDC, that would be compression stroke... ?? you have me confused now... lol

    Your numbers are 197whp and 150foot lbs? What is your set up?
    I looked like you are using crower cams.
