    Default 6.50!!!!!!!!!!

    An UNHEARD OF number in a TAF in Phoenix!!

    Jim Lange (One Sharp MFer) tuned and prepped CANYON driven by Don Bausher ripped off a 6.50 @163mph in the final round. I dont know if many of you can comprehend the magnitude of this pass. Congrats to Habit Forming!!!

    The record is 6.453 set in 2006 at Chowchilla Ca. Typically Phoenix is 1-2 tenths slower than Chowchilla. This could have easily been a .30 at any other track.

    Look at the blower set up its the moved forward version that the t/f dragsters use

    Very cool, what are the C.I. / blower size / other rules for this class?

    What would be the advantage of the blower placement on this boat? Getting some weight forward??? Im guessing that they dont care if one or two cyls are a tad lean and others a tad fat?

    The top fuel dragsters and funny-cars went to the offset blower so the cylinders would finally be THE SAME after decades of uneven holes! It was an effort to keep all of the compression heights the same by puting the same amount of boost to each cylinder.
    If you think blowers put out the same amount of air at the back as they do the front, you are sorely mistaken. Trying to offset these babies is all in an attempt to make all of the cylinders as even as they can. Cylinder pressures - and fat/lean.)

    So your saying that the G's are great enough to pack the back cyls with more than the front? Moving the blower forward leans the back cyls and fattens the front? I guess at the PSI these guys are running the charge is beginning to change from gas to solid where G's can have an effect? Hmmm

    Maybe they need a sliding manifold/telescopic blower drive for fine tuning...

    The new retro style cases have a small pie shaped opening (discharge) at the front of the super charger. This is so the rotors hang on to the air longer. Mounting the supercharger towards the back of the motor is to put the discharge opening more towards the center of the motor so it doesn't pick on the front couple of cylinders.

    The G's are taken more into effect in the N/A pro stock stuff.
    The major deal here is that blowers do not disperse air front to back equally. Standing still or moving. So they get a front discarge blower and center the discharge over the center of the eigine. Take a peek at John Forces stuff right now. The intake looks like a cast single plane intake for a carb. But the runners have individual burst panels. Alan Johnsons are very similar as well.
