Re: Calder Tonight
A little disappointed.... Best was a 14.23 @102.68MPH.
Traction being the huge issue!.. I ran with straight out extractors for 8 or so runs,and simply NO way could I get the power to the ground (wheelspin & sideways 1st, 2nd & 3rd).. Refitted the zorst & much more refined power resulting in 3 or 4 14.2's. Also had 1 day old tyres on, which I'm sure didn't help? Next step is smaller dia rears with some really sticky rubber... Another bugbear with the manual is the hopeless 2nd to 3rd hit & miss shift gate! Honestly, my toploader of 20yrs back leaves these tremecs for dead!.. Anyhow, all in all, a good night (pity there were no other BA's on deck!)
BTW.. Some super quick HSV Monaros around! Black one pulled 11.99, & a yellow one 12.0 dead.
