Got the 1/8th mile drags on tomorrow at Wilby. Hoping to get a flat 9 down the 1/8th but will settle for a 9.5. Running a set of M/T Drag slicks, and bringing spare axles this time... After breaking 1 on my second run at Heathcote. Are any other Fordmods members going?

Feel free to post up your 1/8th mile times, even from Heathcote.

ballizticbobo - heathcote 9.57@76mph - Wilby 9.75@???

Yup, took a spare set!
Pulled 5 runs and pulled the axles, both were twisted so I replaced both.
Next set pulled 10 runs, and they are rooted! So I put the first set back in!
Should be good for another 5 runs... fingers crossed!
Killed another clutch though. Should be fitting it on saturday. 10" 5 puck brass button sprung centre and a HD EF XR6 pressure plate.
So far i'm up for over $300+ and I still need to buy another flywheel...

Cam, what diameter in inches are your stockys? Cos I just found a set of 22" tall MT slicks that I might be changing to for the cortina. With these slicks, I can run a 3.23 diff instead of the 3.7 I'm currently running, and then I'll be able to cruise on the highway at 3300rpm instead of 4000rpm with the 3.7:1 gears! My current slicks are 26" tall. And my stockys are 23" tall.

Check out the calcs on the link below to work out the best diff gears to suit your car...
