Red face I got killed...Videos inside...I should've known better

I jumped on the second race and still got caught...lol.
My mods are:
Street port
ALS seals
Greddy T78
Haltech E8 Pump gas
LS2 ignition coils.
Around 450-480rwhp.

The S10:
carburated small block
Spraying a small 150shot cause it might give me a chance.
E85


I got worked...again...

nice runs still. I'm not a big fan of Nitrous though. A 1.3l turbo vs a v8 with nitrous.. i think you did well.

He's a friend of mine so I knew what was coming.
He runs high 10s on motor and high 9s with the 150shot, so I had no chance either way.
I'm always down to race, whether I'm gonna win or not.
I don't get butt hurt, cause I know I'm one of the slower guys.

used to have a buddy around my area with a SBC in an old s10 with a 75 shot. he figured we were going to race so prematurely he upped his shot to a 150. he beat me by a car but rod knocked it in the end. nowhere near the built engine as your friend tho

That was awesome man. I applaud you for sharing a loss, with a video none the less.

Gotta admit that the bug inside you has probably been stirred up a little bit...ha

BTW, how much boost were you running and I bet that S10 is light as hell

Did you try to brake boost? He still would have pulled you eventually I think but might have made it more interesting. Nothing like being taken out back to the woodshed! Good runs and nice rides. G

Throw a turn or two into that race and run it again. I doubt he's done the suspension work needed to do anything other than a straight line.

20B is the other way to go if you want to just stay in a straight line. Speed costs money - how fast do you want to go?

I was running around 20psi and that s10 is a fully gutted race car.
It's built in every way to go straight, and done so very properly.
He's gonna beat me no matter what so I wasn't butt hurt at all.

Yeah I was brake boosting on both runs.
You'll notice on the first run that it nose dived while brake boosting,
my fuel map was a little too rich causing it to fall flat on it's face once i got to full boost at such a low rpm.

We all know stomping V8s with a stock 1.3 on straightlines is more gratifying.
I would just go the LSX route if I didn't want the challange.

Do you have a dyno sheet of the power your car is making? If he was spraying a 150 shot on a carbed stock cube 350 you should have beat him with almost 500 HP. I'm willing to bet you're not making as much power as your butt thinks you are.

He has run a best of 9.99sec @132mph with that small 150 shot.
And he also ran high 10s on motor alone so, I'm pretty sure he's got me.
My butt dyno is a little off calibration too, but my trap speed tells me I'm high 400hp.
Actually I think the track was downhill....for real...
