Default White Whale VS FBO C7GS

Buddy just picked up his super sweet C7 A8 GS from the shop today from doing full exhaust (sans axle back...has NPP), CAI and toon.

So naturally we head to the South part of Northern Mexico for a pull.

The cars:

Nice kill, no spray??
Sounded like someone upshifted a few seconds before it was honked off.

Both cars on pump gas toon. No nawz was burnt in the making of this vid.

I was in 2nd gear for the start, not sure what he picked for the 40 roll....I assure you that he wasn't in D for the hit.

Wow, I expected you to pull a lot harder on a pretty much stock NA Vette.

You know Dennis, that was a mean spirited race and unAmerican. One of these days I hope to return the favor to your white whale. I drove behind a GS on the way to work this morning. I didn't recognize it until he slowed and I passed him.

It looked like a c7z as I turned in behind him, and I didn't bother to give him a go.

I mention it because he made turns at lights the fastest and flattest I have ever seen a car turn on the street. It was totally insane the way it cornered. I saw the badge and looked it up today. I have the controller set at 10psi today. Might not have been a good result, but I would at least have tried.

Here in Huntsville there are folks with money and serious cars. I'm getting a little impatient to get the turbo where I want it's performance.



I goofed up and overwrote a good tune with a bad one. I think I'm going to just tune the advance to 16 degrees. Play it safe at 15 psi.
My iat's were 117 on a 91 degree day after a two gear run at 13psi. This vertical intercooler is NOT as good as the 4 5" core horizontal cooler I had on the last setup.

So exhaust and a tune is FBO now? And you Furd derps wonder why you're the laughing stock of automotives.

That Vette kinda looks like sex. Puts the gt100 to shame.
