      Thanks, I'll give it a try next outing. Be nice to drop ET with what I've got before throwing more money, time, and parts at it.

      Good times, what's the basics of your current setup?

      good times sky, like he said its a whole different ball game with the open diff on drag radials. i hear ya on that one legger, you cant tell what tire is spinning in the burnout. ive found the best on the bfgs around 12-15 psi and my new mts im running 18-20 psi, no need to go any lower

      as far as the burnout goes... ive always turned the wheel back and forth while the tires are spinning, it tends to help make both tires spin with the open diff.
      You can see it a little bit here (moreso on the second burnout, you can see how the power transfers)(this is on 22x8 slicks, but its the same technique)

      The flip-side of that is that i've heard people say that will throw you diff out the side of the case, but it never happened to me

      I thought about that and didn't because I thought the same thing about my axles and diff...

      1st, I wouldn't even go as far as to call it a burnout.

      I'm a bit weary of my stock trans... trying to keep it together.

      Well, the 8v's will go on when I get time this weekend.
      I found nothing that I already didn't know.
      This week I did come across another 12v banger.
      That car may be linked to a 16v that I was trying to track down in the old topic.
      Then that reminded me, I was still trying to nail down a time for the ABD drag truck.
      I have talked to ABD in the past, but I am still yet to see an exact time, time slip, or video. It's like there is this big cloud surrounding that truck. Some claim high 12's, then there is talk of deep 12's, while others mention it was always breaking, and never got out of the 13's. There was even a quote that the truck went "11's with 12 of the 16 valves bent" too.
      Anyone???

      Better make some room...Todd ran a 12.69 with the VR today. I'll let him post up the timeslip. And with no tach, no 2 step, and a broken shifter!

      Lots more video, but I shot it all in 1080p, and my computer is really old, haha. Took 30 minutes just to cut it down to a downloadable size.

      Good stuff, glad to see this finally happen.
      Like Joe said, 1.68 is getting out for sure.
      It will be interesting to see where you pick up ET from next.
      Did you get to roll it on the scales?
      I think that is the only thing I need to get from you.
