    We never had that issue..

      A mate builds burnout cars. His latest runs an ls3, glide and a 6.23 to 1 diff ratio. Apparently peeps are now going with silly ratios rather than revs

        Umm the wheel speed would be terribly low with a 6.23:1. I think some wires have been crossed somewhere in that story. Of if it where the case it would need way more revs.

          Wasn't Garry Myers "only" running a 289 with a 6/71 for all those years in his old Mustang before giving it to his son?
          A guy I worked with reckons he asked Gary the specs so he could copy it for his 33 3W Coupe and said it was a pretty basic set up.

            I too thought it was a 289 but according to the link below it is a 302.... and fairly basic.

              I cant see why you would go to a 6.23 in a skid car, if anything, 2.75 and lower if possible to get the wheel speed in top gear approaching warp speed.
              More smoke and vastly longer engine lifespan cause you dont have to turn it so fast.

              Skid engines are a bastard of speedway and marine, they dont need to make heaps of power for what they are but just need to work in a car on methanol and be able to sit on a really high rev limit for at years worth of shenanigans and skids, one minute at a time.
              I'm sure there are some guarded secrets to getting the lifespan out of them, I dont think there are any other applications where a blown motor is run at such high RPM's for an extended period of time.

                i think the idea is to get the tyres to last the full minute, with a tall diff they are gone too quickly

                  You can do it with 8500rpm and a 3.20
                  Or do it with 2.75 and 6500rpm

                  You will take the 6500rpm because the wear on parts goes up exponentially with engine speed.

                    I just msgd him, I got it wrong, apparently he's after 260kph wheel speed at 4500 rpm?

                      A couple of the wilder cars make well over 1000 but I'd put the average engine power in the Masters field at 6-700. Have seen engine dyno stuff from the outliers though and they pack enough hardware and have made north of 1500. At the other end of the scale, Lynchy's junkyard LS stuff makes about 4-450hp.

                        I'm not a burnout comp aficionado, but fuck Lynchy is entertaining to watch - and has a hell of a feel for it.
                        This is a post i wrote by mistake, which is nice...

                          Burnout comps are boring tbh.
                          My brother in law tells me that they're trying to reduce revs to keep the engines that much happier.

                          My other mate changed the ratio so he didn't rev as hard. He said after his VN catching fire last year he was more interested in smoke than revving the neck outta it then burning his quarters off.

                          x2 Lynchy is about the only one I'll watch go.

                          2rismo the internet is saying 50% entries filled?
                          Is there a 2k cap again and if so is that correct? Or is it a bit of a trick to get people to enter early. PM if it's sensitive info lol

                          This is obviously assuming all your AUX outputs are doing something. Ie idle control, and the other does water spray, and the other updates your Instagram automatically etc.

                            As of this second it's 56%. Yes, capped.
