Since our local track closed we are headed out 4 hours away to a 1000' track. I don't enjoy a 1000' quite as much but it will have to do until we go to the LSX Shootout in STL in a few weeks. I'm running a upper pulley and tune only on PS2's. Any tips on what these cars like. Thanks

I'm sure the same "things " that helped aburd post a new personal best will work equally well for you.

I was told they like to launch just off idle, around 1,000 rpm. Good luck getting traction on PS2s. You'll have to squeeze the egg. :) Have fun.

We had a good time. I made 4 passes in the V and spent most of the night tuning on customers cars. Now its time for more mods. The track wasnt working great for alot of cars but I'm happy with what the V did on PS2's.

60' - 1.767
1/8 - 7.64@93.87
1000'- 9.741@110.02

I could not get it to hook by flashing the converter and ended up doing the best stalling it around 1700rpms. I plan to run the 1/4 time in a few weeks and I will at least add a heat exchanger in the mean time. Pretty kick ass for a vehicle this heavy.
