You guys keep talking about front to rear weight distribution when the real issue is where the weight is in relation to the center of pressure. The further forward the center of gravity from the center of pressure, the more stable the car will be. If you have this correct and you spin the tires, it will not swap ends unless you make a quick move with the steering wheel which, because the goal is to go straight, should not be an issue.
The faster you go, the less relevant the mechanical traction of tire grip is and the more important aero stability is.
Btw, I like those big rear tires. I know of someone who tried a set a drag radials on the salt and he said they were awesome. Too bad they are not ready for primetime yet, relative to sustained periods of speed.

  The trouble is havimg enough weight on the rear tires to keep from spinning them. 222 has always felt glued in on a good course [in high gear] Last aug it felt terrible, which I believe was because of the high and low spots running with the course [imagine the same on a drag strip and a top fueler trying to hook up].

  We have been thinking about bigger spill plates and maybe one or two in the middle. + the gurrney flap for more downforce, hopefully that would help the center of pressure.

Yes, I would make the spill plates as big as rules will allow. This will allow bigger rear percentages while still maintaining aero stability.
This is also the plan for the 3838 Vette this year.

Every few pages I like to put up videos of our runs so if people want to find them they can locate them a little easier.  These are some of our better videos.

     These are in 2008





                 2009



                 2010





 More from the past

            JL222

  Rob...here's the videos. The 1st one is El Mirage, car hooks up and goes 152 mph in 10.2 sec. Then track turns bad which you can see from other video.

  Those times might go with the 09 video. I just remembering checking the FAST data log and coming up with those times for one of the runs.

  Bad news, blocks not ready, but the really bad news is we found a hairline crack in the head that goes up the
sparkplug threads and into the tube area, and sparkplug is very loose in threads, to many things wrong to take a chanch on fixing. New head time.
  These heads are real rough when I get them, no way to possibly run without porting and o-rings on cylinder head needs to be machined and installed.

Its a 500 mile round trip to Santa Barbara for us and we have the same Tax accountant as when we lived there, so killing to squirrles with one shot, I picked up the block from J@S  East Valley Garage yesterday and it looks great cheers Hunter even rubbed a little clutch dust on new welds to blend in grin

 Got to start ordering parts.

 cheers after 7+ months we finally  got our grading permit from Fresno County last Thursday.
 
 Our grading contractor delivered his equipment Sat and started grading today grin

 But some giant granite boulders got uncovered and need to be blasted apart cry [cost about 10 rods and pistons] tongue Still ordering them though grin

  Here's something weird. We have one last test for the building permit, [ testing our well for water flow], which I had done before buying property, but now they say well test are only good for 1 yr. Any how, the grading contractor gave me the name of a tester that was on his last job. MIKE WATERS and he's a fireman, what a coincidence.
 For those that don't know. Our Mike Waters and retired fireman, icon of SCTA and BNI, burial was today cry R.I.P. Mike.

  We won't make Bville this year, main reason is that we'll be right in the middle of construction on our new house and I don't want to leave an un-occupied property with a bunch of strangers coming and going.
 And a couple of our crew members will be recovering from operations.

 BUT still planing for next year.

 DICK'S SPORTING GOODS have a sale untill 5/25 on 12 x 12 shades for $139 and I bought two, + we had a
coupon for $20 off over $100 and the sales girl rang them up separatly for $119 + TAX = $129 each grin

  They are 6' 51/2'' to the crossbars with straight legs which should allow us to lower and take off canopy in a hurry.

 Troy and I set one up in the shop today and with no stakes or tiedowns, folded it up in 1 min and 5 sec  grin

  We also have started to use ratcheting tie down straps for the teathers. This will make setup, tear down and
canopy removal at night much easier than our old pipe style.

 Troy took a picture and will post when he can

 JL222 cheers

Here is the easy up that JL222 is referring to.



Even thou we are not racing in 2013, we will be slowing changing and rebuilding our car/engine.  This is a version of one change that needs to be addressed.
