Answer, yes. Have hit 39'' with my 91 so far this summer. 2 very important factors are indeed the springs (run a full stack for max inches, I use 4 1/2 tons myself) and batteries. The higher the voltage, the bigger the inches. Am running 12 batts @ 72 volts in mine w/ #11 gears to the nose.

Keep in mind, with more inches comes more stress on the car. Dont try to push it too hard unless you have some major reinforcement done to that frame, or you will be asking for trouble.

Good luck! :biggrin:

you have way to much spring the car isnt heavy enough to compress the spring get 3 1/4 ton full stacks

ok homies

1) try a full stack hi-low blacks/prohopper 4 1/2

2)# 11 too much, is it single or double pump try #9less strain on your batts and eaiser on motors and good pressure

3)tire presure has alot 2 do with your performance what ever u have in the front u must have the same in the rear about 60 to 75 psi

4)batts 72 volts is ok but try 96 or more u will see a big differance but if u go to 96 or more u must do a wireing secret that is fool proof and will save u from going through motors !

hope u take my advice because i did it and hit 40s with 3 pumps to the nose but 1 active the other 2 i tried for pressure differences as atrial thing. :biggrin:

Ok. My car has a simple set up and im getting close to 30 stopped...
Mach 3 coils #9 gear and know how to hit the switch..
If you have big coils u need more pump power to colapse them MOre batts # 9 gear # 11 has more volume less pressure.. but it works for some pepeol I have better luck w/ #9's the dump is very important to at the very least it has to be an itialian dump..
