That's a cool car Ritchie.
 Cool

I've changed the colour of the steelies on my car so it doesn't look just like it! Hahaha!

Nice ride.


Thanks mate Smiley  I can put the gasburners back to save you the problem if you like?  Grin

Last pass, not often you get to leave a black strip S on a drag strip, on a road no problem but this is something not so common Shocked Cheesy Grin

After the street car shoot out cruise Saturday I fitted slicks and stinger and did 4 passes, 1st pass was aborted as nitrous fuel solenoid stuck open flooding engine as soon as I activated it, next pass was a nice straight 10.48@129mph, then I tried bring nitrous in quicker but it just wanted to go up, was fun but not as quick.
Here's one of those passes

Kalle I know you like a street car wheelie Wink enjoy Grin

Would have cost about £13k, was a bit less as I traded some work for stuff, here's what I wrote at time of running 1st 10s

 


Well done anyway, be nice to know how much the car worked out in the end.




Rough total is £11,430, that is with some wheeling and dealing, bought some stuff, didn't need/use it and sold it on, then selling most of the original car[engine, gearbox &axles, interior, front wing and bonnet, front bumper, wheels, stock disc brake spindles, rear shocks]   that I didn't need.
Also I traded some things for my time, so in reality to actually duplicate it would be nearer £13K maybe just over and that is with the cheaper wheels, another set of wheels with used slicks etc would add to it some more.


cheers Richie





Hope that helps, sorry about your eyesite Cheesy

If you had to chose between your three race cars, the one most fun to drive, wich one would it be?

That's a hard one, for my favourite I think it has to be the Old cabrio as it has such a special place in my mind having owned it just about 25 years now Shocked[next month], but on the road this 67 is probably easier to drive, mostly as I worry about it breaking less, and its so simple in comparison to the other 2.
They all provide a different challenge at the track which I enjoy equally so nothing to separate them that way

Tickets, nice 60ft on 2nd one, need to just smooth it out a little and should go 10.30 or even 10.20s as it is, then maybe a bigger nitrous jet Cool

Seeing the car in the flesh really shows how easy you make a 10 look. Open the bottle run a 10 and pop to tesco for the weekly. Really looks effortless and we all know it's the opposite. Ace work Richie.

Nice work Richie,
At almost 130mph 3rd and 4th are obviously tall gears, how do your 1st and second compare to a normally aspirated close ratio box? I guess what I'm asking is could you just change 3rd and 4th to run nitrous?

Thanks Smiley

It will go about 135mph crossing line with shift light on so got a little left still, yes in theory you can, depends on how short your 2nd gear is though ? don't want gap to be to big a drop in rpm when shift to 3rd, the torque of the gas will pull a taller gear no problem but still need to keep it on cam/in power band of engine in N/A form.

 Grin Thanks.

 I am making a lightweight muffler at moment for it to replace stinger, then I will try it on DOT treads, if that works it really will be just open bottle and go Cool

Will look up my current ratios. That box will end up in the notch but will possibly go for a refresh/ratio change as well. Sorry I couldn't make the weekend, house project and working all weekend made it impossible

 cant call it a 10 second car until I've got a framed timeslip.



Hi Gavin

good effort there, and nicely done on a small budget Smiley  as this is the internet you can call it what you want, hey I seen people claim 8 second cars even though it never ever went to track  Shocked  Wink

But in all seriousness you are right, getting it to live to 1/8th is a lot easier than to 1/4 so good luck getting that ticket, being a turbo car with that 1/8 it should go 10.50s I reckon if gearing is good

cheers Richie

Well, I got my 10 second pass last weekend but I was warned after my first 1/8 mile shutoff that they would show me the gate with an uncerted car.
Second pass I shut it off at about 850' and here was the result.
