Nitrous drags....no consistency?
Wondering if anyone else has eperienced the same thing with drag racing on the gas (bracket racing).
While running N/A, I always finished in the top 10 each wednesday (out of 150-200 imports). I took 2 first place and 3 second place trophies this summer, all n/a.
Once I got the juice on, my times have been jumping around wildly, and I always lost before the third round. I could run a 13.45, dial in @ 13.4, then run a 13.8...and then the next run would be a 13.49.....and the next a 13.9....
I know the inconsistency and lack of traction of the street tires have a lot to do with it (As well as no bottle heater), but at 100F ambient temperatures you would figure that both bottle pressure and traction would remain fairly constant.
Oh, and there were those days when no matter what I did, I couldn't dip below 13.8 :( - regardless of bottle pressure or traction. And then there were the days until I couldn't break into the 13s until the 4th or 5th run...
My last day with the nitrous my 3 runs were 13.9 @ 105, 14.1 @ 106.1, and 13.8 @ 105.....and then I got mad at the thing and I sold the kit :D
I wonder if different sources for N2O have slightly different mixture ratios for the gas...
I see James running consistent 14.6's and .5s, but his ATX gives him an advantage :thumbup:
Jeff? how were your days at the track?
