recently went to e-town and i only got 2 passes before i got kicked out.

1st pass 2nd pass

60' 1.997 1.700
330 5.219 4.842
1/8 7.785 7.436
mph 95.95 95.05
1000 9.997 9.669
1/4 11.876 11.569
mph 120.44 118.43

on the first run i got my highest mph's ever. on my second run i got my best 1/4 mile time ever. on the second run i didnt even stall it up all the way either. i only stalled it up to 3000 rpm's because the lights dropped so fast. it was the eliminations and i was going to try to stay in it so i had to go as soon as the lights dropped. but i went all out on that run any way. next time ill stall it up to 3800 rpm's like i should have.

sometimes i wish that i didnt mold my body kit on and get such heavy 19' rims. without all the extra weight i would have probably been doing better times.

Bill, it was fun racing with you. let me know if your going anywhere racing this weekend. 570-510-1106.

Amar...as long as the tires are really hot its better when i stall it up higher.

Very nice numbers Rick! You'll get there just keep trying! Make sure to update that sig with your dyno #'s they are really good for an auto/high stall!

on that 11.5 run i did my best burnout ever only because i finally found out how to properly do it. i could have done a longer one to make the tires even more sticky but i let off as i saw the smoke. and i only stalled the converter up to 3000.

next time at the track im going to take my time and burn the hell out of the tires and stall the car up as high as it can go. this should give me my better 60 foot time im looking for.

and if i had extra money saved up i would really consider locking up the converter so i can give it all the car has. i just dont have the money for the tranny if anything would happen to break because of locking it up.

What would we do without women? :D

My GF gave me my TC last year. She also wanted to wait but I whined like a little girl until she gave in. You might want to take a page out of my book. :lol:

Good luck this week.

Rick, the last piece of advise I can give you and driftTT is to shim the wastegate or do the hpf mod, but only if you don't care about blowing your stock twins. At this point I doubt either of you has quite enough hp to do it. Wingless Tony went 126mph when he set the record and seems to be a good driver. His 60' wasn't bad either. You can make up some ground on the 60' but the rest has to come from hp at the tires. I always wondered what would have happened if I tried that and some race gas. My twins could only hold 18 psi and I know of some that can hold 21-22 psi to redline. On race gas that would have given me a great chance. Oh well, atleast I was able to get $400.00 out of them when I sold them.

Do you not think this "feat" can be achieved with peak hold boost not exceeding 16psi with boost dropping below something like 15 towards redline? With a good 60', I think they have the mph. Running 126mph wouldn't be too tough with a nitrous bottle in the back of the car that you're not using of course. *just kidding*

i really dont think that ill ever run an 11.2. im just trying to get the closest i can. i know that with my current setup i can get an 11.3 or 11.4, as long as my 60' time gets better and i lean it out a little more. im also going to be getting a vpc soon so that might help me a little bit also. im just having fun running consistent 11.5's and 11.6's all the time.
