  • March 11 2018, 09:17:27 PM Forzfed: When it comes to Buick parts there isn't too many cheap things in Canada!
  • March 11 2018, 11:24:34 PM Steve Wood: William sent me a time slip.  He went 9.58 at 141 mph.  Pretty good for a guy on stock springs and worn out shocks running one of them sorry MS 3 management systems.  Told me he installed some QA1 coilovers today.   That 350 tranny turned his life around last year.
  • March 12 2018, 12:32:13 PM nocooler: Damn he has it working!
  • March 12 2018, 01:11:49 PM Steve Wood: yeah, he never gave up.  I have a theory that really smart guys often don't go fast because they are looking for a scientific answer for everything and they have a hard time accepting that something works if they don't understand it.  That's the problem with some guys and programmable chips.  They would be better off just leaving it on defaults and concentrating on the  overall combination.
  • March 12 2018, 01:16:16 PM TexasT: that's what i do haha, defaults and hope it stays together. mine isnt really solid in the twelves though.
  • March 12 2018, 01:40:15 PM Steve Wood: Usually, we are talking less than a tenth when trying to fine tune it...the power comes from the synergy of the combo.
  • March 12 2018, 02:19:17 PM Forzfed: It's always fun to tune at the track and watch your ET go down!  I remember changing the alky flow to 100% and pulling fuel and watching my mph go from 109 to 116.6mph!
  • March 12 2018, 02:32:39 PM Steve Wood: That was with Eric's chip and Julio's Alky?
  • March 12 2018, 02:55:54 PM Steve Wood: The easiest car to tune should be one running E85
  • March 13 2018, 01:12:09 PM Forzfed: Steve, that was with the ME and SMC.
  • March 13 2018, 01:19:15 PM Steve Wood: ah, yep, that sounds right...Steve left it to you to dial it in.  I ran many a mile on the ME's.  he paved the way for modern chips
  • March 13 2018, 02:05:43 PM Forzfed: I loved my ME chip!
  • March 13 2018, 05:26:06 PM Steve Wood: With a little imagination, you could do some really trick tuning
  • March 14 2018, 04:42:14 PM Scoobum: Good drag radial info....[link]
  • March 14 2018, 05:56:40 PM nocooler: [link] -  looks like a good car to bastardize.
  • March 14 2018, 09:32:37 PM gusszgs: wish they would figure out why the things are so fukn hard to balance
  • March 15 2018, 08:53:48 AM TexasT: less expensive cores, slap the tread cap on, as fsst as they can
  • March 15 2018, 02:18:27 PM Forzfed: Good link Scooby!  Interesting 16-18psi and 60 plus runs are possible.  Can't wait to try my MT drag radial pro's out!
  • March 15 2018, 05:12:26 PM Scoobum: Jim, I had the same deal with the MT drag radials. Always seems to take a crapload of weights to balance them.
  • March 15 2018, 05:29:44 PM Scoobum: I bought a digital heat gun. Testing tells me track temp plays a key role on tire pressure. I walk up and take a reading between each round...and set my pressure depending on the track temp.
  • March 15 2018, 05:31:20 PM Scoobum: I throw a blanket over the slicks on a sunny day to keep the sun from altering the pressure. Doesn't take much.
  • March 15 2018, 07:05:50 PM Scoobum: Jimi Hendrix...Stev ie Ray Vaughn...and Jeff Healey. 3 of the greatest guitar players of all time taken from us way to early. We lost Jeff to cancer 10 years ago...seems like yesterday...[link]
  • March 16 2018, 08:36:00 PM nocooler: remember that 60 runs is on a car that goes sub 4.0 in the 1/8th. In your average 10-11 second car the life of the tire will be significantly better.
  • March 17 2018, 09:09:05 AM Forzfed: Oh yeah!  And I'm a cheap bastard so I will run them right down to the cords!  :icon_lol:
  • March 17 2018, 03:36:56 PM reality: Real music not that heavy metal shit lol       [link]
  • March 17 2018, 03:38:24 PM reality: [link]
  • March 18 2018, 07:21:43 AM gusszgs: Good cure for insomnia
  • March 18 2018, 12:44:09 PM nocooler: Tried it - doesn’t work.
  • March 18 2018, 02:50:13 PM reality: HOW ABOUT THIS  [link]
  • March 18 2018, 03:37:28 PM Forzfed: I accidently stabbed both ear drums with a knife!  Thank goodness I can still communicate via the key board!
