Ba Xr6T Ute

Recommended Posts

We tuned the Ute today and made 607rwks with 33psi running Methanol.. through a Turbo 400 with a big stall which was slipping heaps. Have a tighter 1 ordered.

Great to drive and hooked up well :3gears: considering the hot and hummid weather :crybaby: have to organize some rims/rubber and get it down the strip. If you would like to know anything about this rig feel free to ask :beerchug: or Prior info is in the 400/300 club, some links

f*ck the graph looks flat and smooth? Whats it like to drive? :beerchug:

Edit: do graphs look different (smoother) if power is mapped against wheel speed opposed to rpm?

Mate is still has good manors and just throws you into the back for the seat on about half throttle much more than that :3gears: , especially if taking off in 3rd.

Dave does know how to tune these things. Mick posted up a run on Utube here is the link -

Well done Chad that's getting pretty serious especially through that box and stall.

Two 800hp cars in consecutive days I think we know who the man is and more to come from both.

What an animal. Your fuel system is an unbelievable bit of gear.

Congrats Chad. It'd certainly be a sight seeing the 2 purple utes (yours and Kents) run side by side.

Are you both competing this weekend?

Cheers for that GENTS it's getting there hey... :turboboink: would of loved to of run it this weekend, especially with Kent's beast ready to smash some more records :buttrock: but it's not ready yet, At least the 5 point harness is going in on Friday.

Did have plans up untill this morning to take it down to Summer Nats but time is not on our side with the NEW Stall converter :w00t2: and more Tuning to be knocked over. The converter when under power is just flaring to the limiter :omg: ,with the box being a T400 the stall has to be hand made to half GM and Ford so we are going from a 9" converter to a 10.5", the existing one cannot be tightened up to what we want. Heres a few more Vid's Mick has put up.

Well Tray your power figure is sweet !! We should be right for more. You know what its like when you head up around these figures with everything having to be right on the day which was not the case with this round for tuning.. we are having a tinker then re-load time.

OK - Would like to see into 4 figures for HP.

Ran it for the first time with this set up in street trim/pump fuel and found a few issues which are being sorted. With the stall flaring on the dyno it was crappy on the track and wow was it a warm night up in Townsville. Changing from penrite sharp shift to Castrol Tranzmax z and the cooler/fan is going from behind the front bar to under the tray, might have to put another cooler in, see how it lines up on the 8th Jan when the track is rolling again. Still have another converter on order. No records were set on the night but fun was had with alot of unseen racers turning up for this meet which incorporated a show an shine and 30 mile cruise. :beerchug:

Doin it on street tyres with a flaring converter a 10 was never gonna happen especially on its maiden trip. You've got the right idea mate go & iron out any small annoying bugs & then when your comfortable & the utes perfect let it rip!!!

Who built the converter? Obviously not TCE, as they have done several for us and have been brilliant. If you have any more converter issues give us a call and I'll give you the part number to use, congrats on a weapon of a car :beerchug:

I didn't read they were running transmax Z, if so that is no good at all for a T400, Type F is the best fluid for them if you can get it, Transmax M is also good if you can't.

You got it totally right John, sort these small issues and roll it out again.

Had a good look into these oil's and with speaking with my Box/Converter builder he recommends the transmax Z, on the other oils application details they state with extreme use eg Drag Racing the Z is referred too. Hope this sounds right guys..

Wacked in another PWR cooler/fan and moved the existing 1, should do the job of getting the massive amount of heat out... :Doh:

How do the coolers work sitting back there? Do you have a trans temp guage if so what temps does it read? my c4 has one B&M cooler with thermo fan mounted where fog light use to sit hottest it gets is 180deg/f

The Tranz temps in any car will vary in heat mainly due to the power put through it, converter size and the oil used. What size stall you got and power, how hard to you drive it/Race. I'm a bit mad when it comes to racing, the Adlerian kicks in and run straight after run is normally done, 80% of the time there is no wait, straight into burnout and staging.

With 450rwks the now moved cooler which was in a very similar place to yours handled it, with the extra 150rwks that changed everything. The cooler got that hot the paint on the front bar started to go pear shaped. We stuck a fan in front of the front bar and there was strong air movement in this location and having them on a angle will increase surface area and the fans are just back up. Will have to get a temp gauge. The old oil was fried and stunk. :icon_ford:

Excellent, glad to hear the PW gear is going well Mate. :beerchug:

We want to tune it before the 8th of Jan, that's when Townsville re-opens and they are a lot more lenient that surrounding tracks if you get what I mean. :innocent:

Brought them off McDonald Bros Racing in Vic, they have heaps of great gear, have a gander at their site...which includes all prices too.

No clearance issues about 4 hours to install with some welding involved with the Ute hooking up at least 50% better. Well worth it if you have around or over 450+kws. Down side is the Ute creaks when turning into/out of driveways but hey with twin 3" exhaust and a heap of fuel pumps it's just another compromise.

Prior to the Caltracs going on there is another mod that can be done and it is well worth it for the small amount of time required. Use some plate, around 5mm and encase the leafs towards the front of the diff were 3 of them terminate, just have the Ute sitting normally or jack up at the diff and weld the now shaped plate around each leaf and this well madly reduce the leaf roll up. Not the best of photos but you can just see what's been done. :beerchug:
