    Seems like a lot of tire pressure for your power and FWD.

    Agreed. I run 8 psi hot on a sticky track and 6.5 psi hot on a normal track. That is 25 x 8.7 x 13 MH's HB11 compound.

    Also agree on the burnouts. Get them hot once, then just scrub them after that.....but with over an hour on some of your runs, I would have done another burnout as well. Plus it looks mad tyte yo!

    agreed... i too thnk with the M&H should drop the pressure down a bit... granted its a heavier car... but i think the too much air was causing a trampoline effect...

    we shall find out at 22!!!

    I tried 9.5 hot with the 24.5s and had to steer it quite a bit on the top end. I think a heavier car needs a bit more pressure.

    A heavier car may need a bit more pressure on the 24.5's but with the 26's he can drop it. 7.5-8psi is where my car is usually happiest.

    Just point of reference, I've found that 8 psi works great on my 24.5's. Consistent 1.6's.

    If you drop the pressure to 2 psi, the tire flattens out so much it sling shots off the line. Your 60 ft times will drop to .8 or less!

    Surely less than yours....The ScAries now weighs 2360 with me. The Shadow is about 2-300 more. 1.6's in both at 8 psi.

    Your waisting gear and getting No benefit from the 26's, your entire thinking is backasswards............

    Only reason I went 26's was so I could air them down Below 9psi on 15" rims and Not get warned by the track officials that my slick were flat and they wouldn't let me run them like that. The 26's sidewall at 8psi looks like the 24.5 at 12psi. At 9 psi the 24.5's looked flat.

    Now the added benefit was that I had no need for a hybrid trans as the 26's with 3:85 gears put me right in the sweet spot of my PB, all the way down the track!

    JT,

    Adjust your tire pressure another milli-PSI, and you'll be running 9's!

    You Need gear Because it weighs 3700 lbs! Your wanting to drop to 2.92 and that would be fine for a 2500lb car that traps 130mph in the 1/4 on 26's, but on a heavy A$$ van it's Killing you! (I'll take this to your build thread so's not to jack JT's thread any more)
