Track time

By woody2136

Filed under: 1980 Chevrolet Camaro (Z28)

I went to the track to get my suspension adjusted and the engine tuned just right to see what it will do. Due to rain and a guy grenading his engine I only got two runs in all day and neither were very good.

First run: No wheelspin. Quick burnout, 1.5/1 turns preload on the traction bars. Launched at 2000 rpm and it hooked hard... bogged down the engine down and then recovered halfway through first gear.

60ft............2.075
330ft..........5.805
1/8mi.........8.873
1/8mph......80.96
1000ft........11.503
1/4mi.........13.724
1/4mph......100.95

2nd run: Too much wheelspin. Quick burnout 1.5/1 preload. Launched at 3000 and didnt stop spinning until it got a little sideways and I lifted to get it back straight. Better top end MPH though.

60ft............2.942
330ft..........6.896
1/8mi.........10.006
1/8mph......80.19
1000ft........12.637
1/4mi.........14.867
1/4mph......101.61
