View Full Version : Made a few passes

05-02-2013, 10:34 PM
Went to test n tune at Lebanon Valley last night for a few runs. Haven't changed anything on the car so no reason to expect anything different but what the heck. Yes I have the slowest 4th gen in the club. Eat shit. :p

First run: no burnout, dead hooked
60' - 2.018
ET - 13.801
MPH - 99.8

That was actually my best 60' ever by a hair. ET was just a few hundredths off my best time. Probably shouldn't have filled up the tank before I went.

Second run: no burnout, spun a little
60' - 2.194
ET - 13.888
MPH - 100.19

That is the car's best trap speed yet, and only the second time it trapped over 100 mph. The wheelspin probably actually helped.

Third run: burned out, still spun
60' - 2.201
ET - 13.958
MPH - 99.5

This run I not only spun on launch but it got a little loose on the 1-2 shift too. I decided to call it a night after that because I didn't want to put the car into the wall. 2nd and 3rd runs were in the right lane so I'm guessing it wasn't prepped as well or was just a little slick. Despite only having a 2.0 60' the car felt like it left great on that first pass. Every run was launching off idle. Nitto 555Rs at 25 psi.

Didn't want to put into the wall? On a 13 second pass? I did it and didn't even pass the 60' mark!! lol

Nice runs Alex.

Doesn't take much power to lose it on a slick track!

You could bracket race that thing.

It's perfect for brackets but I can't cut a good light consistently. Had an .020 but also a red light and a .1xx.

Yeah consistency is key. But you are getting the experience and having fun with it. That's all that matters man.

Very cool Alex!

I definitely see you bracket racing at some point.

pretty good numbers for your mods! play with the tire pressure to get just the right amount of spin, 1.9x 60 and bottom 13.70s

05-04-2013, 04:53 AM
I'm not sure it could do a 1.9 60' without more mods, possibly. Best ET was 13.76.

05-04-2013, 05:17 AM
youre already very close to 1.9. you might be surprised.

05-04-2013, 02:33 PM
STALLLL!!!!! NEEDS A STALLLLL!! haha great time. and like the guys sed. youd be the one getting chased! Easy bracket car!

I did bracket race a few times. One run was fun cause a guy with a faster car thought he was gonna sandbag me. Chases me down and fender races me to the end of the track. But I had a good light and ran within a few hundredths of my dial and he broke out. That was pretty cool :D
