Tongue HOON's 1st and 2nd trip to Willowbank in the NITROUS XE! WARNING: Lots of pics!

Been a while since I've made a post, so I better make a BIG one. Ok, so some of you know, and some of you don't, my XE was fitted with a nitrous kit, amoung other things for the purpose of racing on the strip. Anyway, here's the 1st trip with times and info: (sorry to admins with my site URL on em, but I don't like to have twin copys of pics on my webspace!)


Here's the Ford getting ready for it's 1st run.


Yep, first run against a 10sec car. Thank christ this is only test n tune!


Staging up again.

Time Reaction 60ft K.P.H. E.T. Comments
5:44pm .813 2.451 129.83 16.993 No Nos, 3/4 throttle
5:53pm .829 2.260 130.98 15.578 50HP Nos, shutdown half track
6:01pm .793 2.236 135.49 15.512 50HP Nos, shutdown half track
6:21pm 1.108 2.299 133.96 15.741 50HP Nos used half track
6:28pm .832 2.270 128.36 15.378 50HP Nos. Fuel fluctuations.
7:12pm FOUL FOUL 134.91 FOUL Over staged. Shit.
7:45pm .820 2.219 146.27 15.115 Floored it through fluctuations
8:55pm .781 2.229 145.02 15.159 Still Over fuelling

Yep, so best run of the night was a 15.11. Not bad for a first timer. Here's some links to vids of the night: (No sound on these)

First Burnout. Don't be fooled..it's a LSD with rooted clutch packs...I ain't made of money!

Me taking on a mate in his VL. I hosed his ass!



Ok, now onto the 2nd night.
In between these events, my MSD unit fried, and took out some ignition wires with it. After I took out the MSD unit, the car ran better, and revved all the way though to redline. Looks like I didn't have fueling problems, but electrical! On with the show:


1st Burnout! Diff decided to twin up for once.


Staging up.


This is what happens to a sparkplug that can't handle the heat. Luckly, it didn't do any damage as I shut the engine off as soon as I heard a knocking sound. A Datsun sparkplug got me home! Word to the wise...always travel with spares! I know I will.

Time Reaction 60ft K.P.H. E.T. Comments
2:52pm .528 2.202 142.87 15.486 50HP Nos.
4:54pm .442 2.450 136.90 16.627 No Nos.
8:30pm .519 2.637 132.66 16.178 100HP Nos, 1/4 track burnout and ended up melting a plug along the way!

Looks like NOS turns into something else when left in the bottle for two weeks. I spent most my time waiting for Hardcore Performance to rock up with a spare bottle for me. Now for some vids: (These have sound!)

15 seconds is pretty damn respectable for a 1st timer!
