Dragging a 350
By user13334066 on Jan 27, 2005
right now the config is something like -
drag porting - nothing heavily fancy but, widened and raised exhaust and transfers
racing CDI - running a digital CDI from www.rddreams.com. has a varible curve, down side is that it needs a batt. but whole thing works like a charm
carbs - 34mm mikuni roundslides, bored out to 35mms. and with powerjets, size 80 swingarm - extended by 4''
pipes - pipes from stannakjak.com, skalman racing
sprocketing - bit of experimentaiton going on now, 14/42. yes its wierd i know. modded gearbox - with the dogs cut for better high-rpm shifts. no angle cuts though.
right now the whole thing is setup for high 12s @ 100+mph. software predictons show 55bhp@10500 rpm. powerband from 8k to 11.5k rpm.
if somebody out here can help, some questions -
o will stiffer springs on the clutch plates affect gear shifting?
o will sprocketing affect gear shifting?
