I went to my local track tonight. My first 2 runs were my fastest and after that the track must of been cold. My tires werent hooking for **** or it could of just been from the retards driving through the wet box. I was also trying to find the 'sweet' spot to launch the car...First I thought the car was hooking well enough for a flash 3500 rpms and spun bad. Next brake stall at 2400 spun almost as bad...next 2k stall no go...then i went back to launch off idle and still spun. I went home after that.
My first pass right off the street with tires at 28 psi:
8.00 1/8th at 88.00
12.43 1/4 at 110
This has been the fastest time I ran in my car!...
Than I dropped my pressure to 20 PSI and
7.9 1/8th at 88
12.37 at 110
Not bad for my slushmatic...The car chirped each shift and chattered a little on launch. Stupid nittos, oh well, I did muster a 1/7 out of them! My fastest MPH
of the night was 113.
My suspension consist of MM LCA, Steeda adjustable UCA's, Mach 1 struts and shocks, Eibach pro kit. I removed front and rear bumper supports and that is the only weight reduction I did. Next time out I should have the 15X8 Weld pro stars with M/T ET Drags and typical weight loss items...passenger seat, rear seat, spare, jack. I havent run the pro stars because my rear tire studs are too short.
