welcome back! how was your trip?

the club is coming along. a lot slower than i expected, but we are nearly there.

so she goes good now eh? get her on the dyno at all? i bet you are getting some remarkable figures! cant wait to see your 1/4 mile times!

i wont be attending, my gearbox **** itself... wach out for that wont ya... these gearboes arent built to push tripple the standard power... it would pay to treat it with a little mechanical sympathy. looks like you got a good'un tho.

btw know of anyone selling a gearbox off an accent?

HI guys , didn't see any one at the creek tonight , i ran a 13.74 and 14.06 the other times i stuffed up . The engine has a lot done so it can rev that hard but 7,500 was to much so i set the shift light to 6.800 and it was better , i know redline on the original tacho is 6,500 but i've got a 5'' tacho which goes to 11,000 not that i'll even get close to that , any way thats it for now

cool! a 13 sec run is amazing imo!

redline isnt just a line on the tach. its a point where the valves start to bounce [aka float](when the valve springs cant keep up with the cams, because the springs cant bounce back fast enough, so they stay open when they are meant to be closed). also when the manufacturer thinks stuff will start to break.

normally the ems cuts spark at redline to stop rev's going higher. you have an aftermarket ems, so you can allow it to go higher, but you cant stop valve float unless you upgrade the head, so above 6800rpm may be no use anyway.

so, 7300, thats a lot of revs... i wasnt thinking engine damage, i was thinking valve float. when you get valve float you get a big drop in power.

titanium springs would fix that8D

congrats on the awsome no's! cant wait to see whats next!

12's would be good , Rocco's the company who did the work have a guy in Korea getting me a LSD , not sure what cams i'm not that much into brand names , i leave that to Rocco's , i've got a new set of shocks coming to stop balance the front to give more grip under boost and then we have a little surprise for it , maybe then 12's would be a reality , stay tuned.
