    Re: BadAss SRT-Z - 2.4L / A568 - Update!!!

    Did it break in the same place? Man, I can only imagine how frustrating it is on your own car....I'm frustrated at the issue and it's not even my car, funds, or time!!

    Has there been anyone else to push these cars to go this fast on a 5-speed with the race weight you have, JT? If not, then it may just be that the limit has been found for the design and material with this set-up.

    Maybe a change in launch strategy could help? I know a carbon/carbon clutch would be helpful, but $4000 isn't!! LOL

    Re: BadAss SRT-Z - 2.4L / A568 - Update!!!

    JT, how are you coming off the clutch pedal? (ie. Snapping it off or dumping it?)

    The only axle I sheared first time out on the solid hub disc I got exited and BTTW I dumped the clutch and Bam, instant hook and bye bye axle.

    Since then I have developed a very lazy left foot. I leave early on the last yellow and casually (not riding) release the clutch. Seems to make all the difference in the Charger.

    Same spot. failure sureface looks a little more coarse and not as smooth as the last few. One thing different on thsi one is that I moved the axle around trying to find if there was any play between the axle and tailshaft housing and did not see any there but notices a lot between the center bar and tripod joint so maybe this one went there first or at the same time

    I've never side-stepped or dumped a clutch in any car... but I do rather pull the clutch foot off the floor rather quickly. This is part so the clutch engages before the RPM go too much higher than the 5200RPM 2-step and hit even harder.

    Next trip out I'll play w/o the 2-step to see if it holds together longer

    Re: BadAss SRT-Z - 2.4L / A568 - Update!!!

    Runs fromlast weekend:

    Run #1. 2-step, spin

    R/T: 0.094
    60': 1.760
    330: 4.716
    1/8 ET: 7.022
    1/8 mph: 109.52
    1000': 8.972
    1/4 ET: 10.600
    1/4 mph:139.66

    Run #2. 2-step, SNAP

    Was a REALLY sticky track too... Decided to not put the backup axles in and to take a better look at home.

    The inner CV had some visible play so maybe the tripod joint on that axle has issues? Put in the other set and it seems tight.

    JT, isn't your best 330' 4.62? Damn, your right there if you can get a good hook and Not break an axle you would have a new PB before year end!

    Ya a 4.65 I think... from the only pass it made at SDAC this year 10.56 run

    Tomorrow looks like the last chance for 2012, cool air but prolly low traction so prolly not dead hook but maybe not break axle? *knocks on wood* LOL...

    Good luck bro! I think if you could put a good chunk of it together one one solid run you could see a 10.4X. (fingers x'd)

    Pretty nice MPH on that first run and you didn't break anything. That's a pretty good day compared to what's been the norm as of late. Nice work.

    Thanks man. Was fun to get it out with the rest of the gang one more time.

    Not sure why it's breaking up again, gotta tear into it this winter to check it all out.

    Was this at the same track? Bummer you couldn't get traction as there's not much to go on when that happens. Basically you know that the axles live when you don't cut 1.7x 60's

    Haved you watched some of the Busher Evo videos. I know quite a few of those high 8 low 9 evos look like they crawl the first few feet but still get wicket 60's. A lotta clutch slip taking up lash before fully letting things go.

    I am a fan of staging brakes even though they will make launching a whole new ballgame. That allows you to already be slipping the clutch so you don't have to "get it just right" each pass. Trying to get it just right leads to leaving too soft, too hard, etc.
