My best run of the day was on a 125 shot from the launch through the top of 2nd gear. A lack of fuel pressure caused me to complete the second half of the run off the nitrous button. I still managed a 12.35 @ 104.9mph. I made it to the track one last time for 2008 on Oct. 19th at Pacific Raceway and the "Special" really stepped up. I had recently upgraded from the factory 5/16 fuel line to a RobbMC 1/2" sending unit and 8AN stainless braided hose to the fuel pump. More fuel was definitely what the motor wanted.My first pass was on motor. I had some traction issues but still pulled down a 12.79@104. My second pass 2hrs later was on a 125 nitrous shot. Due to not having a bottle warmer and the cool temperature I could only get about 700lbs of bottle pressure. I made a clean pass... and was rewarded with an 11.98@111 time slip. I experimented with different timing advance and ended the day with an 11.97@111. What an awesome way to end the season! Here's the video of the 11.98 run... A couple of weeks after running my 11.97 I bought an adjustable pressure controlled bottle warmer. I need to stabilize my bottle pressure.My friend Mike Parker "66SSFan" on Team Chevelle and www.TCNWRacing.com has spent many years as crew member and even Crew Chief on National Modified and Unlimited Hydroplane teams. When I mentioned "Doc" of Berg Racing thought that a solid lifter cam would really wake up my motor, Mike said, "Really. I have a cam and lifter set that you can have... for free!" He gave me a test cam that was in Mike Webster's National Modified Season Champion hydroplane that he had sitting on a shelf in his shop. Pretty cool, huh?) It's Comp Cams custom ground solid flat tappet cam and lifters. Specs are 550/547 lift, 256/262 @ .050, and 285/300 Advertised duration, on a 106 LSA. All I need to do is pick up some one piece push rods, a gasket set, and then get to wrenching. Thanks again Mike! I can't wait for next season!!! Spring 20093-26-09 Registered online for "Pink's All Out" at Pacific Raceway on August 14, 15 2009. Pacific called the next day and confirmed my registration. At least 7 of my friends in Team Chevelle NW made it through registration and will be a part of the 464 cars competing for the chance to be in the 16 car field. Hopefully one of us will be lucky enough to make it into the final elimination.4-06-09 Started on "Project Solid Cam Upgrade" I'm also adding a DB Electrical gear reduction starter and installing the pressure controlled bottle heater I bought last fall. 4-18-09 Fired off the motor with the new cam. As previously mentioned it's a custom 550/547 lift, 256/262 @ .050, and 285/300 Advertised duration, on a 106 LSA.I also swapped from .039 to .028 head gaskets and now have static compression of 11:1.This tightened my quench to .044 instead of the .055 I had previously. Because of the increased duration of this bigger cam, I can now safely run on 92 octane pump premium.Here it is right after break-in.
