Since I've been asked a million times what my car would do in the 1/4 mile I decided to take it to the local drag strip to find out. A buddy of mine brought his GT3 out to play too
It was pretty hot out, about 90-95* with high humidity. I set the rear shocks to full soft, dropped pressure in the 225/50 RA-1's to 20psi and headed out.
As predicted, getting off the line was a real challenge. The twin disc clutch is pretty hard to slip so I was getting a pretty good amount of spin in first gear on every run. I found that if I lifted just a tad and rolled back onto the throttle in 1st it was fine. Once I got it into 2nd gear I could just mash the gas without worrying about spinning. Car is ~2400lbs and with a 3.23 rear, 4th gear should be good for about 140.
I think with a pair of decent drag radials I could get a little closer to 10's.
I took about 10 runs for the night (didn't lose any
) all between 11.5 and 11.7. Here's a couple vids from my best run. Track Side Video In Car Video
