Volvo Diesel D24T drag racing at GIR midnight madness
Second pass, racing an obviously much fasterMustang. This time I tried building some Boost but the lights dropped before I was ready, and only managed about 3lbs off the line. Its a big turd off the line but at least it wasn't spinning its ass off. Time was improved, 17.2@83mph. Still slow though. It really needs the manual trans!
Volvo Diesel D24T drag race at GIR midnight madness
Racing a worthless Neon, but there was so much torque off the line I was
burning the tires off! I had a 3.3 second 60' time! I was running him
down on the top end up I had to let up to get it to stop spinning at first.
Time was a crappy 18.9@80mph
1979 GMC Detroit 453T hauling a load
Pulling away from an intersection, twin stickin' it pulling an 18' flat bed
with whats left of an old wood deck. Probably 2500ish lbs between trailer
and load. Nothing major, but no problem for the ole' 453! Vid was taken
by a buddy from his truck so it isn't the greatest sound, hope to get some
better outside the truck footage soon.
1984 Volvo D24T burn out
Quick burn out with new D24 NA manifold... Makes much better off Boost torque. Listen closely when I let off
the throttle you can hear the turbo
"bark" it sounds kinda cool. Its bad for the turbo I know....
