Re: 4 Link Dragster tuning

Bucky, looks like your IC is pretty long (ahead of the instant center) just by looking at the bars. And going by your description of shock movement the IC is also about the anti squat. One would think this would hit the tires less aggressively while also planting them later in the run (in comparison...

Re: Change converter or keep what I have?

I seen your results on another site and noticed the mph was low or worded a different way the et is very good for the mph. Do you think it is the spragless converter? What about the intake issue? That could certainly be hurting the mph. fwiw, in good air and track conditions my spragless converter r...

Re: Change converter or keep what I have?

I thought it was a different brand than a TS converter that you had went back on forth between a spragless and sprag? Or maybe it was a different company that did the change back to sprag? Was the internal clearances exactly the same before and after being cut apart? What stator was in it?

Re: Change converter or keep what I have?

Scott, if at any time during the run the stator wants to "unlock" and can't because it's spragless, it will cause drag in the converter. If the converter was designed so it didn't reach that point having a sprag would make no difference, but it would not slow it down either, and I would believe the...

Re: Change converter or keep what I have?

Is it possible to have a spragless converter that performs as well as its spragged counterpart?

I see so many claims of lost performance on the internet but that wasn't the case when I changed.
