|Darwin||You need to datalog your passes to find out what you or the car is doing and how it effects the ET and MPH. No more guessing if you have the tools to look.|

I think the dyno is being generous...trap speed tells you how much power you are making. I personally do not think you are making the power that sheet says you are.
What dyno was it? What correction is it? Who dynoed it?
Trap speed is king when it comes to power.....

When your comparing yourself to other cars it's not an apples to apples comparison. Peak power numbers don't mean squat. Shape and size of your torque curve determines how much power you really have. That 345 hp is just a snapshot of your power curve. I can beat a 345 hp car with a peaky power curve, with a 300 hp car with a broad flat torque curve. it's all about usable torque within a certain rpm range that will determine how fast you are.

|BIGCHRISS197||I think he lacks the hp and mph to really benefit from a 28" and hes bringing the 4.10s down quite substantially. I say keep working with 26" but move to a bias ply tire.|

There you go. Run the MT's and watch your trap speed increase.

from other threads...
- remove as much weight as you can, every little bit helps with an N/A car (shaker sub/amps, pass seat, rear seat back/bottom, front sway bar, etc. it all adds up).
- those heavy wheels and low profile tires are doing you zero good at the drag strip
- what RPM do you launch at?
my first 1/4 mile pass back in the fall of 2013 (right lane in time slip pic) I had UCA/LCA,LCA relo brackets, cobra jet springs, strange single adj struts/shocks, 17" m/t bias ply rear tires on OEM wheels and a gutted trunk. K&N CAI, frpp shorty headers, OEM h-pipe with cats, steeda UDP, 93 dyno tune putting down 302rwhp/317rwtq on a dynojet

Have you thought about trying a bigger tire? I gained in my ET going to a smaller tire but I lost on my trap speed. Used to do 117-118 with the 29" tires. On my 28's I run 116-117 but like I said, my ET is quicker by a tenth or two.
And I don't see anything as far as suspension mods. What tire are you running?

Could just be the air, maybe a strong headwind, and the DA does make a big difference.
That said, most of the power is concentrated above 3500rpm so he may need to launch at higher rpm to get away quicker. Having 4.10s in the rear also means he has to shift into 4th before the 1/4 mile trap and that could also be slowing him down.

|BIGCHRISS197||Hmmmmm maybe the tune? Could be super conservative or cam timing retarded.|
|February 28th, 2016 10:58 PM|
82 mph 1/8
105 mph 1/4

|BIGCHRISS197||Heres an old slip on a 50 shot. compare to yours and see where youre losing time and mph.|
|February 28th, 2016 10:44 PM|
|4vGts||exactly makes no sense. Im getting super frustrated. I know its not my driving because that 99 cobra i drove today i went faster then my friend in his own car....|
|February 28th, 2016 10:39 PM|
|BIGCHRISS197||Hmmm idk man thats a pickle.|
|February 28th, 2016 10:24 PM|
i always run mine out to 6700 rpms
My peak power is 6300 dyno was 345whp on a dynojet. Im about to go back to stock cams. i was running 13.2 to 13.5 with just intake tune h pipe. lol
|February 28th, 2016 10:16 PM|
Take video of your next run inside the car. Before i did i didnt realize i was shifting too early and was coming out of my power band. Make sure youre running the rpms out to 6700 or higher. Heres my video for reference, you can hear the bog in 3rd.
