  1. We made a run last year to try to figure out our tire growth and slippage. These were my results, your results may vary. The tire was a STU 1650x15 #2 on a 12" wheel. The run we did our computations on (according to GPS) was 133 mph. According to the Data Logger in High gear, WOT, and at the end of the run the engine was at 7684 rpm, which is equal to 132.7 mph according to gear ratios. The next data point after throttle was shut (200ms later), was 6571 rpm and holding (the tire was just rolling, not under power or braking), which is equal to 113.8 mph according to gear ratios. This calculates out to 16.6% tire spin or slippage. In this case the tire Slippage was 16.6%, but the GPS mile an hour and the gear ratio mile an hour were within .3 mph of each other According to the engine rpm after shut down the tire speed was 113.8 in actuality the car speed was 133 This calculates out to 16.8% tire growth At 133 mph the tire slippage and tire growth was very close to 1 to1

  4. So if I'm understanding you correctly, M1 uses roughly 50% more fuel than e85. M1 uses roughly 130% more fuel than C16. So a 8.73 gal tank of C16 would be equivalent to a 20 gal tank of M1??? Roughly speaking based off the numbers given. Guess its time for me to beat that chemistry book over my head again .... Your math is correct, but stoich is only one part of a larger equation. Compression ratio, timing, Etc. will all effect the final result, making the actual results lower. As a rule of thumb (results will vary!) -E10 will require about 3% more fuel to cover the same distance as gasoline -E85 will require about 33% more fuel to cover the same distance as gasoline -E100 will require about 40% more fuel to cover the same distance as gasoline -Alcohol will require about 100% more fuel to cover the same distance as gasoline I hope this helps
  5. M1 6.45 stoich E85 9.77 stoich C16 14.77 stoich Using Stoich numbers, worst case it takes 51% more fuel to run M1 than E85. The actual percentage will be lower so roughly a 13.3 gal tank of E85 will go the same distance as a 20 gal tank of M1.
  6. My thoughts exactly. That sounds like a dangerous cluster f*ck waiting to happen unless HPW are way early in the day before the drags get busy and chewed up. x3 It should be a closed coarse, or as close to a closed coarse as possible
  7. Will be on the Dyno on the 19th to see if we are going in the right direction with a new set up. Hope to make North of 850 rwhp. Count me in
  8. I am sorry, I am having trouble reading yore post... I also have trouble reading your post... but I do enjoy reading them!!! Pictures always help out when you are trying to explain something.

I like a lot of torque out in the sand. can't get enough HP at the drags
