Default Latest track passes.

I know this isn't the right place but all my homies reside in SRK. And I killed everything I raced if that helps.

I don't have a lot of time to lay everything out like I usually do. I will try to do that tomorrow. I got a few runs in today but the clocks in each lane were acting up. You can tell by the slips. Rarely did I get both 1/8 and 1/4 mph on the same slip. I am sure my 99+mph 1/8 mile runs were well over 125 in the 1/4. DA was +200 and I was on 79-80% E. No BS or weight pulled or anything like that. I made one fuel adjustment and two trans adjustments. Tire pressure was 16.5-18. Stupid crappy "Race Cars" couldn't make a pass without crashing or oiling down the track. I am starting to hate TNT's and so called race cars. They ruin the entire day. Big shout out to Islander for giving me some well used advice.

That is damn quick for such a lightly modified car. What does your mod list look like now?

Thanks guys. Still the same mods. CAI, my ported IM/TB, Headers w/ cats, stock cat back, E85 running at E80. I went back into the IM and did some more work. I may hit a couple small things on the TB as well. I went back to the stock plugs (need to get an new set) I still haven't done the trans filter and flush I want to do.

Talking over my stuff with Islander I was running way to much air pressure. The car wasn't spinning but I was chasing MPH to prove my power gains. I was actually trying to get it to spin a little to surpass the stock converter lock up bogging it off the line. I was killing my 60ft in the process. I dropped the pressure back down to 18psi from 27psi. Not sure if it hurt mph but it doesn't look like it.

I still have some front half fueling vs. back half fueling to figure out to get my best 1/8 and 1/4 and I have to find a way to still hammer it off idle but stop it from rolling forward till it actually hits the converter. It is rolling forward as soon as I let off the brake right now. I was working on holding the brake for a second as I smashed the gas but didn't get enough passes to mess with it much. Brake stalling doesn't work at all on this stock converter. If I can get the car to front half like it used to then I am in the 10's in 0 DA all day. But I am putting my cut outs in soon and looking at getting a restalled stock converter. Leaving at 3,600 puts me right at the beginning of my power band and should drop .3 easy on this car. I am also finishing up my heads this week so I may pop those on as well.

Good job pray....and yea 27psi was to much. I've never seen much if any change in mph when i drop tire pressure.

Leave the heads off for a while. That thing has 10s written all over it.

Good runs mang! You should give Rockingham a try sometime. Unsure when their next T&T is though... would have to look on the schedule. Their prep was pretty decent this past Sunday considering the trucks were there tearing it up... they stayed on it all day.

Yeah, this thing will run 12+ passes in a row within a hundredth. That is with me making changes. I couldn't image how deadly consistent it would be with no changes. I guess I should start brackets with it and work on my RT. At least I could make some of my money back that way. LOL.

I'm looking at the slips like holy crap, man - that thing is super consistent.

I wish I was. This car has a wide range that it runs the same in. I have changed fuel a full point on the dyno and it doesn't matter (12.0-13.0), I have changed timing up to 5* on the dyno in certain places and it doesn't matter (22*-27*). I have changed shift points by 800rpm in some gears at the track and it doesn't matter. As long as I have the parameters dialed in for the weather there isn't much to be had. Basically when ever I run the first pass I can count on not running much better than .03 with a lot of work. To make any real gains at the track I have to be on point with launch technique, fueling, spark, and shift points. This may be because I do a ton of street tuning and I pretty much have the car dialed in now but it is what it is at the track.

That's crazy. You would think any one of those would make a noticeable change. Did you get it to go wot on launch yet?
