Car dialed in at 13.00 (Round 1), 13.00 (Round 2), 13.00 (Round 3)

Notes:

Was running Omega in 'DRIVE' with exhaust cutouts open.


The Accelerator Cable Grommet which holds the cable to the pedal broke, so we lost throttle.

Thankfully I just happened to have taken the Nova out too this weekend, and Dad was able to continue in 'Time Trial' passes in the 'Heavy Street' Class.

Fortunately I happened to be carrying a spare cable grommet. I broke one years ago and ordered a few to have around.

Despite quicking fixing up the Omega, Dad carried on the day using the Nova.


Ran the Nova in 'DRIVE' with FULL street trim and drag radials.

'Red Lite' in the 3rd round and thus eliminated.

Notes:

Since last weeks big win, we completely changed the fuel system in the car.

We changed over from the stock mechanical setup to a NOS/Holley Sniper electric setup and regulator. We also pulled the stock steel 5/16 line and replaced it with 3/8 steel-braided line from the back to the front.

6 Passes, Zero Issues!! Even tried bumping up the timing to 34, and running 91 Octane and car ran the same.

Changes made since last outing:

  • Electrical Fuel Pump - Holley/NOS Electric Fuel Pump, 110GPH w/Regulator set to 5psi
  • Setup carb, tuned and adjusted 4-corner idle
  • Set Fuel Pressure on regulator to 5.5 psi
  • Set Total Timing to 34 degrees

    Car dialed in at 14.10 (Round 1 & 2), 14.30 (Round 3)

    Notes:

    Ran car in 'DRIVE' with exhaust cutouts closed to keep the RPMs down and hope to keep the bowls from draining out in 3rd Gear due to Fuel Pump/Fuel Pressure related issues.

    Car ran well enough, and consistent enough for Dad to walk away winning the 'Heavy Street' class !!

    Notes:

    After the problems with RPMs at the high end of 3rd Gear, we went through the motor, ignition and fuel systems of the Omega.

    Despite all changes, the high-end miss still remains. With setting the floats higher in the primary cause to miss to start closer to 5000 than at 4500-4800.

    Changes made since last outing:

  • Installed NEW O2 sensor for AFR
  • Installed new rubber line from stock line to stock line under Passenger door
  • Installed new rubber line stock line in engine bay to Fuel Pump
  • Changed Jetting to 65 Primary, 71 Secondary
  • Changed PV to 6.5
  • Clean out Carb, Setup & Tuned, set A/F & Float levels

    Notes:

    Dad keeps up his pace of being eliminated in Round 1 of 'Eliminations'

    Issues in 3rd Gear still persistant, changing the jetting did nothing to help .. AFR leans right out.

    We have bigger problems, will need to look further into it.

    Notes:

    Watching cars of all classes making passes in the first round of eliminations and noted that alot were breaking out by 0.1 of a second, I advised Dad to change our 'Dial-In' time from 13.80 to 13.70 which resulted in him being eliminated in the 1st round.

    Omega seem to have be having some issues on the top end, wouldn't climb past 4500-4800 rpms in 3rd gear. AFR leaning right out.

  • Changed Secondary Jets to 80 from 78

    Notes:

    The plastic retainer which holds the throttle cable at the pedal broke. Using washers & bolts, managed to wedge a broke portion of the retainer with the cable to hold the cable to obtain WOT.

    Changes made since last outting:

  • Set timing to 30 degrees
  • Tuned carb for vacuum (14lbs)
  • Added spacers to throttle cable at the pedal end to obtain 'WIDE OPEN' throttle.
  • Installed AFR Gauge
  • Exhaust Cutouts installed and 'Opened'

    Notes:

    The car was SLOW today, we're getting wide-open throttle ... can't figure out why. Maybe the weather, it's VERY humide today.

    Car was left with exhaust hooked up and shifted automatically in drive. Still should of ran better then the slips show.

    A disappointing outing for the 'Slomega!'

    Notes:
    Car seems to be running good, however our times have dropped. Trying to figure out what's going wrong.

    Discovered after racing, that the thick edge of the floor mat was under the gas pedal, which may be part of our problem.

    Test pass at the end of the day shows it may be part of the problem, but even shifting the car ... I can't get a 13 second pass.

    Changes made since last outting:

  • Changed secondary squirters to .25 from .28 to try and fix a bogging/hesistation problem off the line.

    Notes:
    Dad decided to run the car in DRIVE, so that the shifts would be more consistant then as if he shifted it.

    Ran into some issues with the throttle sticking, ended up replacing throttle cable during lunch break. Discovered we are not getting wide-open throttle, but with time trials done, we will address this later.

    Ended up being a good day as Dad won 'Trophy Class' ...

    Notes:
    Track ran limited time trials, giving us only 1 pass due to weather and they where also trying to make up for a rain date on the last track outing.

    Wasn't really fair to only get 1 time trial, but that's the way it went.

    Notes:
    Got alot of time trials run in with Dad running the Omega in Drive, as well as shifting it manually a few times. Pulled much better times shifting it :)

    I seem to of misplaced some of the Eliminiation Time sheets after Round 1 ...

    Notes:
    Car was running REALLY good for us, not sure what happened in the 2nd round with the 60ft' ... maybe Dad spun off the line. On the plus side, Dad made it to the 2nd round of Eliminations.

  • Unbuttoned Headers at Lunch time - Notice HUGE DIFFERENCES thruout the passes

    Had some issues on Saturday with the car breaking up at the top end. Ruled out all ignition copoments.

    We believe it to be the fuel was getting too hot. Let the car cool down below 180, car seems to run good between 180-205, 210. Once around 210, we ran the risk of the car breaking up again at the top end.

    Changes made since last outting:

    The car was not running well for my Dad, whether it was bogging off the line, or spuddering at the top end. Checked the plugs at lunch tune and all of them had a green like deposit on them and were pretty fouled up. Replaced plugs with a new set, gapped at .45

    Sadly, it spuddered again at the top end and Dad was eliminated after the first round.

    Changes made since last outting:

    During the last week of July 2009, I decided the hell with the 305 and swapped in a new powertrain. Going into the Omega, is a fresh 355SBC, rebuilt TH350.

    In early April of this year, some new parts where ordered for the rear-end. We had Motion Performance installed a Detroit True-Trac Posi with Richmond 3.73 gears.

    During the month of May, I installed Competition Engineering Bolt-In Subframe Connectors (#3116), Lakewood Traction Bars & Lakewood Driveshaft Loop. A set of BFG g-Force tires were ordered (235/60/15) and mounted on steel rims.

    Took the Omega out to Gimli, to run it and give us a baseline of how the car ran, with it's current powertrain.

    Slomega was sporting a 305 SBC, TH350C and 2.73 Open rear. I was hoping to blow up the 305, giving me a reason to install the 355SBC powertain I had recently purchased.

    The 305 held up to the beating and ran beautifully ... altho slow, it lived up to the name of the car 'Slo-Mega'.
