Nice Run. What converter are you running?

The Northern twin is down for the turbo and engine upgrade right now. I had a few slightly bend rods on the little 4.8.
Plus it was 12 degrees here this morning so I wont be joining the fun till spring.

a revmax stage 5 "tight stall" tripple disc (mostly for towing, I'll have to look but I don't think I locked the converter going down the track). I honestly don't know where it stalls, by the time I've got my foot to the floor it's doing a massive burnout. (just looked, no, not locking going down the track)

When I get some better tires, I'll do the sloppy brake and see if I can figure out where the stall speed really is.

For the price it looks like the rev max stuff is worth a look. Currently looking for a converter for the 4L80 going on the 2JZ. Expecting it to be trial and error, trying not to break the bank.

they did the converter for the gold car as well, with a brake it'd be perfect. I will probably have the v8's converter re-stalled when the trans comes out.. whenever that is. (I fear.. the pump may not be in the best of shape)

Added G$s runs. Nice work, 100mph is moving pretty good for a daily driver 8v car.

Now I'm even more anxious to get the big valved 531 on there, see what it'll do when not choked up. I've had 102mph before, on the 531 and 15G, but didn't have the wheelspin I was fighting last night. Next time I run will be with the 531, and maybe I'll leave some of the extra's in the back at home to drop 50lbs. This run was in full street trim, only difference was airing down to 24lbs.

think I forgot to turn the camera on for the run (wouldn't have seen the timing tower anyway), but yeah west coast can sit on this and spin:

goldie went 12.318 @ 124.56mph

no traction control to save my ass on that car.

the full rundown:
60' - 2.098
330' - 5.688
1/8 - 8.345
1/8 mph - 94.00 (how does that even happen?!)
1/4 - 12.318
1/4 mph - 124.56

that would be on 225/50/16 all seasons, no spray (wouldn't have helped if I had it, **** was all over the track until 3rd anyway)

Dang! Way to go. You come out of retirement with Goldie and immediately run 125mph. So it was really broken all this time? Just waiting to lay the smack down if needed??

it was just parked, not broken.
in case there's questions as to which car did what


I haven't worked the bugs out, but I'm going to have to put a tire on it to do much beyond tuning 3rd gear at the track. I'm a little concerned that it'll start spinning in 3rd if I put much more to it (tho, the 940 hasn't, so.... ). I may get it back out to the track at the end of the month, but there are some gremlins that need to be addressed first.

Your timeslip has been recorded in the history books.

What kind of gremlins is Goldie facing? With traction is she ready to dip into the 10s?

yeah it should be back in the 10s in race trim (slicks and spray), if not faster.. the mph is only 3 or so off from what it mph'd last year on slicks and spray (the et is about a second or so behind from what I recall). It's got a timing drift problem that I hope someone can help me with or that my spare cas can solve.

Still beat your 60' though, and I'm only on 225/45 S04's on a track with a 15 year history of piss-poor track prep.

Oh, yeah, and on mostly pump, 8v, and living in Cali.

So yeah, suck on that.

a little, it's missing abs (in the way, not for weight), ps and ac. inside it's missing the stereo and I think tell rubberized under carpet stuff. ps went because the pump started leaking ando throwing belts off.

Let's see.. no prep 225/50 pepboys specials. E85 is pump gas, 8v and cali are both your choices, sooooo

All I'm hearing is excuses for coming up 24mph short

Eh, straight E85 would have helped, 531 will help down the road, plus I was running full street trim, spare tire, tools, jug of water, a/c and p/s, the full setup, even down to LH. Hopefully late spring/early summer I'll get that MS box sent back to you for an update.

Cali, well, yeah, the yob still pays the bills.

I'm hoping for mid-12's from mine once the trans swap happens. Don't need or want anything much faster...already too risky driving it since it's too much fun. lol
