Default about time

Another long weekend, and finally a 9sec

Still not impressed, as basically the only reason its doing it, is I was using ET Streets ( 26x11.5x16" )

The car, while it does feel good, has performed better. Its just lost so much over the latter parts of the track compared to how it used to perform.

1/8...........6.41 @ 113.83mph
1/4...........9.85 @ 144.75mph

Also did 2 x 9.99s runs with lower mph. Would have got some more, but the boost pipe kept blowing off the supercharger.

Still pump fuel + 70/30 meth/water

http://]Another long weekend, and fi...or MT DR's

Car ran well all weekend.

At an event on Sunday at an airfield, I ran 181.9mph over a standing kilometer ( 1000m ) on road tyres ( Toyo 888's )
By comparison...best 1/4 at that event was 11.15s !!!!!!! Absolutely no traction at all, either on 888's, or MT DR's

I previously ran mulitple low 10's, at 148-149mph ( 10.04, 10.07, 10.2x etc etc on 255/50x16 DR's )

At 144mph traps, my car is a LOT slower in terms of power/acceleration that it has been in the past.
As I say, the only reason it was run a 9 these times, is due to using the ET Streets. The car is not performing as well as it should be.

If it was running as well as before, and getting the same launches the ET streets allow.....I'd say mid 9's would be do-able.

Then I might be impressed
