Re: BJB's Super Charged 426 - GDCARMA

Off to Milan Drag way tomorrow. Weather looks perfect. Jersey Boy should be able to get her dialed in after a few good runs.

Re: BJB's Super Charged 426 - GDCARMA

Made it to the track (Milan) yesterday. It was an event called "No E.T. Nationals". Street racing, but at the track... There were over 400 vehicles entered. They divided the cars via color groups, so it took a while to get the runs in. I was able to get 2 runs in via the color system. Then Mike (ScouterMike) and I went up for a early "grudge match" and that was run #3, but after 9:00 it went to grudge match's only. There was some serious money exchanging hands!! Like 300, 400, 500 bucks per race.

Joel (Jersey Boy) was with me as he wanted to get the calibration dialed in with some WOT runs at the the track. It was a long day, but he got her dialed in!

So here's the results...

1st run:
Street tires (Joel didn't like my idea of using street tires, LOL)
Shook the tires, limp mode (another LOL)
1/4 - 19.69 @ 85.52

2nd run:
Drag radials on all corners (Just like I suggested we do for run #1 )
This time all Joel wanted was a data log of an entire 1/4 mile run. So the plan was to walk it off the line (avoid limp) and get a usable log.
60' - 1.6931
1/4 - 11:08 @ 124.39 (Now that's getting better)

3rd run:
This was the run against Mike. Very cool seeing 2 GC SRT's together.
60' - 1.8848
1/4 - 10.933 @ 128.54 (better yet!)

4th run:
At this time the place was a zoo. It was 11:00pm every staging line was loaded with as many golf carts as race cars There were people standing in the water box, watching the car they just bet wads of cash on!! LOL It was a good ole fashion Motor City street race setting. But this lead to a new technique... As I couldn't avoid the water box (like I was doing previously) I drove through it and stopped. Nailed it and easily spun all 4, smoke and all. Now a little heat in the tires.

60' - 1.5050
1/4 - 10.4708 @ 129.37 (Now that's what I'm talking about!!)


So the funny part was to get the 4th run in we had to find a opponent that wasn't interested in betting. We came across a unsuspecting crew with a older trail Blazer. They just wanted to get another run in same as us. I overheard them asking Joel "so what does it run?" Joel says "we're still working on the cal, not sure what it will run"

In the staging lanes the other driver asked me the same question. I told him "it will either be the fastest time this truck has ever run or it will be another 19 second pass." The plan on this run was to go out and nail it!!

All runs were with full interior, laptop, box of spare blower belts in the back, fire extinguisher on the floor, pump gas and an incredibly large helmet to fit over my dome!!

Re: BJB's Super Charged 426 - GDCARMA

Last night was incredible. The fruition of 3 years worth of blood sweat and tears. I knew the truck had 10's in it, but I never expected this much, especially on pump gas at full weight. First run off the trailer was on a very conservative tune. Rich AFR and low timing just to be safe for the shakedown runs. After seeing the 11.08, I knew we had a 10 on the next run. I want to thank AJ(Hemituner) for guilting me into getting more aggressive with the tune. The plan was to walk it up conservatively but I trust his experience and expertise and it payed off. No changes were made after the 10.93 pass. We were just trying to see how it would launch before making more changes. Truck spun a little on the 4th pass but not too bad. I have video but I still need to download it. Milan already posted a link to the 10.93 run on another forum so I'll post a link to that in a bit.

Thanks to everyone who has been involved in this build over the years.

HHP/Bischoff for the stout 426 that has handled all the abuse like a champ
Bruce from HHP for his help designing and fabricating of the supercharger kit
Matfab for all his design and fabrication work on this project over the years.
DTS for the solid rear diff and driveshafts
Paramount for the trans, Tcase, Torque Converter and Dana 44 up front

There are many others who have helped over the years that I'm sure I'm missing. It's not intentional but I want to say thanks to all of you for your help with this endeavor. BJB was like a kid on Christmas last night. Finally a legit 10 second run with time slips, 2 back to back and no breakage at that. I'm very happy for him. Congrats Bri!

J
