AFD v's steel head 1/4 times.

One of my customers just put his XY over the 1/4 with his AFD 2v's heads. The old 2v steelies did 12.2 and with just a strait swap for the heads he is now doing 11.70. (i dont know mph yet) Oviously, the steel heads were quite stout to start with, and he picked up 1/2 a second.

351, with 302 rods, weiand manifold
F246 solid cam
750DP Silver Claw BG
C4, 3500 stall
3.9 diff gears.
4 into 1's
(he does me by 1 car )


10.70 @ 125.00 on the black fun top
408 Cube Cleveland.

Thats a good gain, sounds like you're car will go very well if you get it to a track Dion.

He might of got better traction,on that run or track conditions may of been better.I would be interested to see the 60 foot times on both runs and MPH difference too.

Yeah, last week we had a quick run. He runs 275 tyres on the street and gets awsome traction. He got a jump on me, then pulled about 1/2 car up top. We ran till i hit the limiter at 6900 in top gear and it was close. I will find out some more details on his 1/4 mile times. Apparently the track prep wasnt real good, as just a test n tune. I will get to the track shortly. Just have to organize slicks(and front runners apparently??? Are they mandatory with slicks??)

No, but highly recomended if you don't want to put your car into the wall, also if going to the track, a set of 90/10 shocks in the front and 30/70's in the rear is worthwhile to help with traction especially if your suspension setup is hard, it will be a long way to go only to find no traction.

Re: AFD v's steel head 1/4 times.

At WSID you must run front runners with slicks.I disagree about the 90/10's as plenty of cars hook without them.If it's a street car running 11's or 12's it will get traction on slicks easily (my mate runs 10.90's@124mph on slicks & a very stiff setup in his VK).

Which means that you be in the high 11's also!!!!!!!!!

Do you what chamber size his 2V AFD's are?

The cop said "Do you know why I pulled you over". I said " Well, that all depends on how long you have been following me!"

Re: AFD v's steel head 1/4 times.

1 car it loads of time. When I ran Simon "Team Kiwi" I ran a 12.95 and he ran a 13.5. I was ahead by 1 VX SS bonnet If 1 bonnet is over .5 of a sec you work it out I can produce timeslips if needed.

I can't believe that at 100mph, one bonnet = 0.55 sec.

Surely the difference in your time slips/finish relative to each other, would be due to when you each left the line

http://home.iprimus.com.au/bwill/timeslips.jpg <-- look for yourself.

[edit]I was hassled by a bloke with a VR thats got a 383/5500rpm stall/T400 and 4.5 gears to run on the street. He hassled me for 2 years! I never wasted my fuel. I could tell I'd eat him. I told him take it strip. Guess what! He ran 12.5@108 or 110mph with full drag suspension and slicks. I laughed As you'd guess he's never asked for a race again.
