Poor 60’
« on: July 09 2018, 03:53:04 PM »
So I had the Vega at a little track in Victoria wanted to test after my suspension changes.
It’s much straighter and seams to hook well.
I could not get it to 60’ best was a I did was a 1.75 I had the 2 step set at 3400 rpm and saw 10lbs of boost   
My suspicion is I flooded it with meth as it starts spraying at 7 psi
How safe am I to dial it back to 10 psi as a turn on point for the meth?

I almost always set the turn on at 10 psi...I think you will be fine

A lot of broken parts does not make you a racer; it makes you a slow learner.

I would want it at more boost than you are staging with or it is dumping it in while you sit at the line. Can't see that as a good.

PURPLE wire. I can look it up if you want but it interupts the turn on somehow.

My buddy Steve with the turbo'd Hayabusa had the same problem with alky. I tuned it one nite at the track a few years back. I kept having him launch it...and I kept turning the alky to come on later and later. I got it bang on when he wheelied it. Didn't expect it and he let out of it. Came down so hard he hit his chest on the tank, knocked the wind out of himself and bruised a couple ribs. Came back to the pits and said he'd  had enuf for the nite. Scoob called him a fukn girl and told him to get back out there.

Got mine to come in at around 12 psi from the original 7-8 psi on the controller.... ...seems to work reasonable.

You don't need it below 15 PSI.  You're OK.  YOu can hook the purple to the 2 step (but I don't remmber if the meth kit takes voltage or a ground to disable the injection)
