    Super Street and Pro Street Fords

    I've had my head buried in Dodges for so long I have no idea what the other brands are doing anymore. Can you guys help me list active and recently active Ford Super and Pro Street drivers/trucks. I'm curious mostly in what they are doing with their transmissions and torque converters. This...

    Tractor Fluid? How about Compressor Oil?

    One of the long time racers stopped by our pit this weekend and suggested that we try using Compressor Oil in our transmission to help keep from burning up torque converter clutches. He mentioned that many of the high HP powerglide guys are running compressor oil. After talking to a few other...

    Common Rail Dodge fuel return - go big?

    Have you experienced or seen an application that needed an over stock fuel return line? I just installed a second raptor 150, which do not have a return line like the air dogs, and am considering tapping in an additional return line. Thoughts?

    Front sway bar - worth the weight?

    In the never ending analysis of all things race related, I have come to question the usefulness of my front swaybar in a 1/4 mile drag race. I have also been thinking about installing one in the rear as well. My thoughts are that I should keep the front one and add one to the rear. Any...

    Stall Speed data log illustration - should I run a higher stall?

    Attached is a data log I recorded during my best run last year. It illustrates flash stall and brake stall fairly well, or at least I think it does. (I'm no expert) The converter is an ATS 5 Star stock stall (1800) The engine is a stock 5.9 with a 66/484 setup, UDC tuning, and 65lpm injectors...

    Fitting an SRT10 bumper cover/bumper delete

    My stock bumper had a nice dent in it, and it was heavy (75lbs), so I bought a bumper cover. This is how I mounted it. All materials are Aluminum. Some 1x.125 angle, 3/8 bar stock, 1/4 bar stock, and some 3x.187 angle. I started out with the bare cover and bent up a length of 3/8 bar stock to...

    Pro Street 4 link for a daily driver?

    I've built many different styles of 4 link suspension, for front and rear suspensions, but never a "parallel" 4 link with a watts or panhard. I am trying to get into the high 10's without making any more HP, (ran an 11.04 backed up by and 11.06 this year) and traction and...

    Post race inspection/shakedown/check list

    I'm curious what people actually check out after a race weekend, or maybe even just one day of racing. Like mikmaze said, 11 second full size trucks are going to really put the whoop on themselves. I came up just a hair shy of running 10's this summer because I never re-torqued my exhaust...

    Launch Analysis

    A few small things could have put me in the 10's last weekend, the easiest for me to accomplish on my own would be traction bars/ladder bars/4 link. This video shows a series of launches from 18-25 psi on some Nitto 420S 305/50R20's at 30-25 ish psi in the front, and 18 in the rear. Shocks are...

    Getting slow - bringing her back to reality on the big end

    I had a very exciting run this weekend. I made one slow warm up pass, then one nice and easy 10 psi launch on a soft tune, ran 11.8 at 120 or so. Soon as I hit the brakes I got the most terrifying death wobble I've ever experienced. Bad enough that it blurred my vision! I had my Nitto 420's at...

    What liquids go in to your catch can?

    What fluids do you have going into your catch can? I put a 360* loop in both differential vents, so they aren't going into my catch can, and I haven't been busted yet. (fingers crossed) My power steering has an OEM cap - not vented into my catch can Brake reservoir - nope, not going into my...
