Maybe the boost air at hi speed going past the cracked area of the cooler, acts like a siphon and pulls the water out and into the intake manifold?

 Not much going on for 222 Camaro, we were ready to go for speedweek, then rain and intercooler leak. its not leaking from the sides which could be a bad weld but inside. It probably could be fixed like radiators but I'm worried about corrosion in other cores [just as we get to Bville next year] so new intercooler coming up.
 Also, after watching video of SpeedDemon crash. adding extra and beefed up mounts for intercooler, fire bottles, and water tank.
  Been busy getting settled in new house and landscaping smaller parts of yard.
  Going to Fresno fair and talking to Landscapers that advertise there for the big stuff.

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.

  Another year already shocked


  The second video shows the in car view of the 1st video, you can see the throttle on left of hood and how busy Troy's
hands are steering back and forth, saving a spin.
  Makes me think that faster steering would help.
 
  Hurry up EL NINO and flood the lakebed, so the 222 Camaro could make a full pass cool

I have been slacking on posting any picture lately.  So here are some from rebuilding our side plates and wicker plate. 







Some bracket that we made, and now primed







Slap some paint on them too.

  I was wondering where that black paint on my new concrete apron came from  angry

   Upping the spoiler angle plus the new wicker bill  should allow more petal to the metal grin

  In this video Troy gets to 6450 rpm, 165+mph in 13.25 sec in 2nd gear then .05 sec later at 13.3 sec rpm is 6600
tires break loose and car gets sideways.
 You can hear the revs go up just before Troy backs off throttle.

 Hi hp cars get blamed for tearing up the track from spinning tires but the 222 Camaro is hooked  up on a good run until it hits the loose track. Track is good at start then bad after 3rd gear,

  What I think happens is after reaching a certain speed the low pressure under and behind cars suck up the loose dirt
from the cracks and chunks that are not stuck together well.

  Years ago, I was on patrol duty when the 280 mph Swain Bros-Helash-Hoover AA/BFMR hit some cones, on a good run
until then.  Out on track were two tire tracks, visable for many ft, about the width of palm of hand, didn't look like tires were spinning, between tracks and to the sides, were pea sized dirt cast in a perfect pattern as if one were sowing seeds.

               JL222

  On our Bville 280 mph at the 21/4 and 294 1st mile time it took 29.4 sec or 16.35 sec longer in 2nd gear to reach 6450 rpm than the above run at El Mirage. 16.35 sec in third gear shows an increase of 55 mph in speed during the 294
run.

 Our spoiler mods and a good course should help us get some of this potential speed before the 1st clocks

  Clarifying why the longer time to speed at Bville. Its throttle position and better traction at El Mirage and less traction
  and gun shy about TPS and spinning out at Bville tongue

  Throttle position on the above runs. El Mirage 1st gear 44-67% 2nd 45-47%
                                                      Bville      1st gear 15-30% 2nd 30-36%

   Just a little more traction should allow more TPS and faster time at the 21/4
