Good MPH for 36psi . Out of curiosity around how much timing has it got at 36? Understandable if you dont want to give away too much . Cheers

Well done, with that MPH to run an 8.97 its obvious by the vids its getting out of the whole straight as an arrow and to do it with stock suspension is killer although i'm sure there is some nice little tweaks under the rear end

Hey mate I spoke to you at Jamboree for a bit. Im building the same sort of setup as your car. Just wondering what diff/axles/centre you were running at Jamboree?

Cheers

Hey mate, I am using 31spine axles and an lsd centre from g&j diffs in Melbourne, with a t/a diff cover (that the braces were loose on). I don't have the diff out yet but I suspect it will be gears!

Cheers for the reply mate, so the housing is a VLturbo diff housing not a 9 inch?

New PB 8.81@157.9

So here's an update on ONO747, a fair bit has changed in the past month with a new head combo going on the car we ran back to back 8.91@155 a few weeks ago. After this we make the trip to sydney only to have the diff break 20ft off the start line on the very first qualifying run.

With another set of std gears in the car we headed to the track last night with the car exactly how we had it prepped for Jamboree. I think we were all surprised with a 8.81@157.9 off the trailer backing it up 30mins later with a 8.85@156.5

New Pb to half on the first run and a new 60ft pb on the second run of 1.362, Once again a massive congrats to Shermn89 it's been a long hard road but with results like this it makes it worth all the pain.

We will be taking a break from the track for a few months but keep an eye out for us with a new setup in the lead up to Brisbane Jamboree


Video from last night

Cheers John

Have had a small break due to driving gokarts/work/life but I will hopefully head to the track before Christmas with a few small changes!

Diff has broken once at WSID, broke the gears, other than that i run radials and dont leav

---------- Post added 30-11-14 at 08:11 ----------

I have been busy driving gokarts/working/living so until the last few weeks i have not had much spare time for the car but i plan on heading to the track before Christmas with a little more power!

I have broke diff gears once, other than that i have had a good run with the borg warner, has 31spline axles and one of those rear cover/brace things. Plus i run radials and dont try leaving the line at 40 psi and 6k rpm.
