Good luck mate I took my XD out on Sportsman Pros last week you'll have a blast. Just remember to knock the preasure down a few PSI I did my first run on 20 PSI & it was out of control.

Re: 1/4 mile times finally

Go for 17 & then adjust them down a psi or 2 for more traction or up for a little more stability to preference but at 26 they'll be scary

Re: 1/4 mile times finally

Good luck, you're probably on your way already, but I wanted to tell you the traction on Wednesday nights is lousy. The streets have better traction, seriously. The organisers scrimp on traction compound I was told for the Woop Ass Wednesday.

But they do re-apply the traction compound after an oil down, so it is good to hang back sometimes and run just after.

Re: 1/4 mile times finally

I'm not going to bed until you post the results! I have plenty of popcorn.

I'm guessing 11.6 @ 117

If it hooks up, take a second off that. I'll still guess at low 11's for now.
I know a dood here in Cairns that runs 11.6 in a XD Faimont Ghia, with 2v heads, F246, 3500stall and 3.9 gears. He put his car on the dyno and it made 310 rwhp. Realistically it should be more like 350 rwhp.

Re: 1/4 mile times finally

That 3500 stall is possibly sapping some power ??? The way dyno's calculate???

Re: 1/4 mile times finally

I was nearly going to go to the drags to check it out, but decided I'll wait on line instead.

Couldn't see me going there and not able to resist the temptation to run my car also... Because I'm not ready for it until I get some better fuel..

So my guess is really low 12's...

Hope you post tonight..
