Tomorrow at T & T, we will make a baseline pass with no changes from last week. Then we will lower the air pressure in the slicks, 1/4 psi., from 8 psi to 7.75 psi, to see how that effects 60′ times. The last thing, we will try is to raise the wheelie bars, from 7.5″ to 8.5″, to see how that effects 60′ times.
The real purpose of going to T&T tomorrow is to practice on the .400 Pro Tree. I have been practicing at home, but there is nothing like the real thing!
I don’t care to have the front end way up in the air, but if that’s what the car likes, I may have to be satisfied.
Van had me read the R-M web site in the “Tech Talk” section, article #45, on engine RPM. I will do some variation of engine RPM, after the March 5-6th race, to see if it will help get the ET down. Right now I am very, very happy with the engine, transmission and converter.
