Default 1990 c4 drag car new best et and win

I know this does not really have much to do with c4 tech but I had posted earlier this year about my 1990 c4 drag car and some people may be wondering how it did. Summer has finally departed and last night with a DA of 40 feet I ran my best et ever at 8.49 at 160 mph and I won the quick eight race. The time slip is from round 1 of eliminations where a broke out (not quick 8).



it was a good year, I finished in the top 10 in points and the car ran great all year.

..... … Congrats … 2 C4's in the winners circle too ! … I think that DA 40 helped a bit … I'm jealous ! , our track is 47' above sea level and our DA's are rarely under 1500' … usually closer to 2200' …..

All your arcane, race car, knowledge is a great help on the forum, BTW. There's stuff out there other people just can't answer because they haven't been there.

Glad you did well!

WOOT!

Pretty good progress over the early runs. I think it shows how consistent you are even when you fist got the car and set it up. Congrats!

How long before prostock heads??? LOL

I know you are not a fan of it, but hypothetically... what do you think the car would run using a 300+ shot? Just for giggles?

An educated guess based on current HP based on a mathimatical formula vs new hp shows 7.7 estimate.

Yeah, not too many on that track can run that! That thing can dominate.
