Bad Medicince first run 10-18-09 Fuel altered
AA/FA fuel altered Bad Medicine @ Barano 8th mile. Today is a test and tune day with newly replaced weakest link. We have replace the old school single disc clutch automatic with a new Lenco 3 disc clutch CS1 3 speed transmission able to handle up to 2500 HP. We can produce somewhere over 1000 hp con...sistently using the same dry 455 Pontiac big block engine over and over without tearing it down each and every time we race. Are challenge now is to get the science of our engine and transmission down pat so we can get the most horse power to the ground as possible. This was not the day, however we finally beat the best ET and speed at the 330ft mark that the old 68 GTO had with the same engine. All most there...
This run had us dropping the trans for a minor repair and adjusting the clutch.
Vince said it was the first time it set him back in the seat on the shift into second but we are still having a challenge getting it to hook up off the line.
