      Another video and timeslips

      I'm B441. Pretty satisfied with the reaction times i was getting. Looking at the ET's makes me miss the lower altitude in Julesburg.

      Hey JD, ever have trouble with your NX nitrous solenoid? This is the second time I've had a problem with the Solenoid not firing. The fuel solenoid is working but my nitrous one ain't

      Currently at the track and without a multimeter. Grounds looks good visually. I find it strange that the fuel is working but not the nitrous. Ran an 18.46 with spraying just fuel

      Those are supposed to be really good solenoid too. I haven't heard of many problems with it

      Interesting. I remember back when i first got the kit i went to a speed shop to fill the bottle. The guys there said customers had complained about NX's solenoids. I guess tonight i will run without it.

      The air really cooled down tonight with rain. Would've been a great night run with the nitrous :banghead:

      Theses are different than the older nx ones.. they came out with a new set of solenoids the smaller ones that in this kit and the big boys.. they changed the fuel solenoids also to be ethanol safe

      Great night of racing last night. After the rain stopped I ran my best ET and MPH at Bandimere with a 16.21 @ 84 mph. Then went on to win 2 rounds of bracket racing. Here are the timeslips and some videos.

      I checked all the grounds and they all looked good. One of the connectors on the WOT switch was loose. I think that might have been the problem.

      New best ET in first round of qualifying. Getting closer to my goal of 15.99. Broke out first round, dialed a 16.24 and ran a 16.21

      Going to the track on Wednesday. Need some way to heat the nitrous bottle at the track to get it to ideal pressure. Not going to use a torch, and I've tried hand warmers with no luck. Any suggestions?

      The "heater blanket" made for the bottles are very similar to the heating pads for your back. You could use one of those on a power inverter.

      12V electric blanket would keep in warm.

      Only problem with anything using the trucks power and being a heater will drain the battery pretty fast if not running. .

      Never seen a 12v electric blanket but could work,wouldnt be as concentrated as say a 110v heating pad..both would take a bit of time to heat a bottle,unless left heating constantly. .

      For such a small shot i doubt pressure effects it ""drastically"",if you was running a 150-250 shot it would but a 75 doesnt drop pressure ""that much""..dont get me wrong,you want to be in that psi range no matter what but if your on the low side and small shot,i wouldn't stress that much..

      Personally id be pretty happy with what you got going on and looking towards more power motorwise or gears..i would've had 4.10s in her LONG ago

      O also you got a filter put on it yet?? You cant trust fill up stations and with such small jets and solenoids they can get clogged pretty easy,especially with ethanol gas..i like to pull jets and clean them every now and then.ill purge both solenoids then for couple seconds also,without jets and lines zip tied to a bucket or facing ground (key on,motor off and pump primed)

      Interesting. I'll look into getting one. As for engine upgrades i would absolutely love the 422 cam and 95tm heads. Having that extra power always would be sweet. Also the idle the cam makes would never get old

      If you drive to the track with the warmer on and leave it on unless your truck sits for more than 30 mins. It will stay warm and hold heat. Honestly if your battery is good you could probably run it a few hours before having to fire up the truck. Most inverters have low voltage protection too that will beep or shut off if it goes below 12v so your truck will always start.

      I ran the same setup like 10 years ago in my Mountaineer. Had the bottle on the floor heat until I had the warmer setup. After 10 passes I would be down to 600 psi with no heat but when I had it heated up I could usually get about 20 passes in before it got down to 600 psi. Heating the bottle is key, you'll get into the 15s I feel with just that. Also big props to getting some darn good r/t's. My best ever was a .003 and I've gone down the track probably 100 times

      What size shot were you using when you could get 20 passes in a night? I do think that a 15.99 is possible with my current setup. A bottle heater is for sure gonna be something I get this winter.

      I only got to do 2 passes at the track the other night, it was packed. The nitrous solenoid was acting up again first ran an 18.5 then starting working again later and ran a 16.27, I'm beginning to wonder if the solenoid is clogged with something.
