Question is, what do you consider mineshaft air? Here we consider anything below 8000' DA mineshaft air!!!

Wow, that’s insane. Here I would consider it to be adjusted density altitude under 500 feet to be mineshaft

Air specs at Bandimere

Air specs at SGMP

Take care. Tom Worthington


If it seems that bracket racing has gotten too expensive for you, maybe you are just doing it wrong.

I'm trying to talk MEAN GREEN car owner to getting down to one battery.

If you can have the lightest dragster in the parking lot, why not!!

If it were mine I'd cut ever essential tie wrap off it it doesn't need, why not!!.

It's only gonna make it better!!

If it won't spin the engine with 20 degrees lead out, one freshly charged battery, It needs a better lighter starter.

Hell, I'd be looking for a 8-10 lb lithium worth a damn hot lapped. If it were me - dragster.

Why not!!

I'd rather a 1700 lb 4.50's 4.60's dragster than a 4.60's 4.70's 1800 lb dragster, any day!

We won't see anything close to that kind of air during the racing season Tom. Early in the season we're sometimes blessed with air in the 7500 to 8000 DA range, but it doesn't stay there for long....

IIRC Joe told me Boo's car was 1910 going down the track


That's a tank for sure. I've talked to Boo a few times. He's ran this combo for a while. Like maybe not exact, but close for like 5 years maybe so he has data. Like all huge engine, huge power setups getting her down the track is the challenge.

Bones and Langdon have both been 4.2x with 615's, not flyweight either.

Enfinger went that years 7 plus years ago with a light car and a 615 sr20.

I've been 4.2x with a big head 582 American years ago.

Looks like he's shifting at 7500, 200rpm past peak. In the 1/8th, that would put him about the same rpm at the stripe, 7400-7500ish...possibly a little lower depending on his converter slippage....not buzzing it at all....very reasonable rpm...and a 4.11 gear with big bubbas....


None of the norms apply for this car. It damn sure hasn't a 1.80 low gear in it.

HP isn't falling off much either after peak hp, ringing it out wouldn't be detrimental. Not saying that is most likely even happening, but just bringing that to your attention.

It's getting time when people start talking in terms of starting line ratio's, rather than final ratio's.

7.31 or 7.39? If it's 7.39 it has a dump.


It absolutely has a 1.80 low gear and definitely no dumps or any of that goofy stuff. No carbon body and it is around 1900lbs with the wing on it. I’ve turned it higher rpm and it didn’t do anything, it just wants to get into high gear quickly so 7550 is where it’s shifted at. The 4.18 was with a nothing special get em’ 2.350 carb, but Joe has a 2.800 ready to stick on it to try out. Y’all can have those billet manifolds, I’ll stick with my cast junk.

Thanks. Hughes 7141C1 is the part number I believe, I still think it could’ve gone quicker with my 7SB1 in it but who knows. Joe back to backed a 2.350 to a 2.800 last week on a 9* 632 and the results were pretty good so I’d like to go at the beginning of next year in some good air and mess with it if I get a chance to.

The most impressive thing isn 't Boo going 4.teens at the Million, it's going 4.30's in Noble,OK. The slowest race track in the world except maybe Bandimere.

Before i knew who Boo was and the first time I heard them announce his dial I expected to hear a blower. Nope!

Noble was always a .100 slow for me in the bracket car. Using that thinking I unintentionally went 6.02@235 in TD at the last divisional Eek
