Race 3 & 4 this weekend . Also added shifnoid and MSD window switch . The window switch can be adjusted in the lanes vs. being forced to use the laptop . I had to adjust the cable and make it was not bound up . I fire a S 55 relay with the msd digital window switch which fires the solinoid . The shifter is new and i carpeted it to mak it near invisible in the cab . I still have to have door panels made and paint the inside of the doors flat black . We will see how these changes work this weekend .

Window switch is always a good idea and will keep you from grenading the engine. Any plans for a solenoid shifter?

Quick update , got to 13 cars saturday and got tree'd and broke out , but got to 7 cars sunday and went .119 red in the quarters :crazy: So i got some of my money back . The left lane was tricky for some reason . Alot of .100 plus reds and 60' numbers would swing like .03 for most i talked to . The truck really was trying to print slips . 6.945-6.998 ( i chopped once on the 6.99)

Shift noid was working ok saturday when i got outrun . I had the solinoid tied into the hot side of my S55 relay for the nitrous and then the power daisy chained off the shift noid hot side . This caused a voltage drop when the shifnoid "hit" causing the window switch to drop out and restart . The window switch has a start sequence that shows on and off and cylinder count before it becomes armed . Once powered down it takes a while to be re-armed . I fixed this by tieing the power from the window switch ( low amp draw ) to the Nitrous S55 and running a new power wire to the starter solinoid . The starter solinoid and the Shift noid are non coencidental loads , meaning they wont be drawing amps at the same time . I also put a fresh S55 in for the shifter just to be safe . BAM ! hits everytime . The shifter set up made the truck a tenth quicker . The MSD digital window switch and the auto meter tach read different rpms . The tach is slow . I have been shifting late due to the tach/shift light . I set the shift light 100 above the shift point and use that for something else now . 7.0 index racing this Saturday and maybe 1/8th mile footbrake at sealy sunday for $1K purse .

Hey I appreciate you keeping me up on what's going on. Sounds like you have it dialed in. I'm going to try and be out there Saturday.

Well a quick update . rains have been bad . Any of ya'll that stay up with sportsman racing know they called off all the sportsman stuff at the national event . Well we got through that and we haven't really had a decent weekend to test . I have changed a few things since the last outing and i was looking forward to getting out this weekend , but rain on friday and so far today . They have cancelled friday and saturday . Looks like we are going to run mothers day . Track will be green im sure . Anyway , finally got one of these . Took it over and had a freshen up done . 7 clutch plate deal . Just a real nice sportsman glide . We opened up a few places in it and ran it on a trans dyno with a sportsman tree . Looks like it will pick up my reaction times over the 400 and use less power . Also the wheelies will be tames some , not that they were bad . Also bought a stock case glide with a brake for the S10 LS project .

Got the glide in and running . Went to Lonestar motorsports park in Sealy , Texas to run IHRA . So far the reaction times are alot better . The 2 speed is boring compared to the 400 as i was driving alot more .

Reaction times are as follows: .066,.060,.010,.010.-011( i anticipated),.023, ..015,.006,.025

Pretty happy with the swap so far . Shiftnoid setup just came in .

Thanks guys , I did pretty good . 60-70 car field and i got to 8 cars . I tree'd the guy , but it spun and was .04 slower in the 60' guess i got on the spray to late went 7.14 on a 7.12 dial and was out . Still a good night . Glide was a good move even though it slowed down .

Fianlly got one . I recently came across a deal on a Strange aluminum 9 inch center with 4.56 gears , daytona pinion support , 1350 billet yoke and 31 spline spool . I swapped it it and the truck just kinda moved to my spot on the tree . Lights are way better , Powerglide is consistant and i was focused . I had all hard races and every round was with someone higher than me in points .
