*In car video* Banging gears in the '83 GT at the local Dragway

I never really got my car to hook this past Saturday mostly because of really poor track conditions. Almost everyone was expieriencing the same thing as me and some even packed up early and left. The track temps most of the day were 130F and I even seen it in the 140s and they weren't prepping the track at all! I was also expieriencing a lot of wheel hop while trying to put heat in the DR's...I seriously need to invest in some upper and lower control arms before I go back again. I was also having some carb issues from it being so hot and humid here...

This video below is from my best run of the day and was a 13.3 @ 108mph and that was with a 2.39 second 60 foot time. Other guys there saturday that normally run in the low 12's were unable to break the 13's.



Im planning to go back at least one more time this year and see If I can get some better results with a combination of cooler temps a line lock and some new upper and lower control arms so I can eliminate the dreaded wheel hop I was expieriencing on saturday. Im certain that once I have my wheel hop issues taken care of I can finally get some heat in those M/T's and I will blast off some low 12's....Keeping my fingers crossed!

Re: *In car video* Banging gears in the '83 GT at the local Dragway

sounded real nice. you need to practice your shifting. you will pick up time there. when my car was a stick car, i had NEVER lifted off the gas to shift. i used to practice by smoking the tires in first, and then slamn into second. then look at the tire marks on the ground. the closer the 2 sets of tracks are, the better your shifting. i think i have a vid somewhere, ill look.

Nice run,@108 should put you well into the 12s with some sticky tires.You should try a plastic carb spacer if you have room for it,my old carbd notch ran alot better on the hot/humid days with it.

Hahaha....That's a good one Brian! Lol

As for my shifting, I was kind of trying to go easy on the new tranny untill I'm a little more comfortable banging on it. Also had to make a couple of adjustments that day at the track on the firewall adjuster so it wouldnt grind going into 2nd. As Brian stated in his thread it was a test and tune weekend more or less.

BTW...I picked up my new line lock kit on the way home from work today
