Re: Test-N-Tune, X half a dozen!

Couple more videos:





As a sidenote, I got my shifting issues worked out. Turns out my mph on my trans tables was off by about 5 mph and it was causing all hell to break loose at WOT. Its fixed now so next time the car should see some honest mid 11s cam only. Waiting for the heat to die down some.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Fast Forward: Went back to the track this past friday. Finally got the car off the limiter. Best run was still about 11.8x. Couldn't get it to go any faster. I had a new best 60ft of around 1.58 and a new best trap of 115. DA was about 1650 at the time of the runs. Couldn't seem to get the ETs down though. My only 2 vids from that night are ****ty but I will link one from someone else:


Car was filthy: Right lane






Left lane:

Re: Test-N-Tune, X half a dozen!

4th Trip out: Track altitude: about 250 ft, DA for the night: about 2250. Yeah it was muggy with about 80-90% humidity. But we ran anyway for fun. Car ran good for the weather I thought, and pulled the driver tire 6-8 inches every run. Felt awesome :drive:

Here's how the slips stacked up:
Time...7:14.....7:18.....9:08.....9:34.....9:40... ....9:49
60'.....1.591....1.602...1.581....1.590...1.596... ..1.608
1/8.....7.350....7.342...7.316....7.344...7.321..... 7.327
1/8.....92.48....92.66...92.76....92.47...92.91..... 93.06
1/4....11.573..11.539..11.525..11.568..11.526...11.5 17
1/4....116.82..117.13..117.14..116.55..117.08...117. 59

And a couple of vids:


Since the last run it has a Fast92, AI 243s, PA Racing K member, Midwest bumper supports F+R, Strange 12 bolt. I was running about 3/4 tank of gas and an ice chest in the back. I know the 12 bolt is slowing me down some (over the previous runs) but I drove home so it's worth it Car is also tuned by a rookie tuner (me) and is set to conservatively shift around 6400. It ran exactly how you would find it any day on the street. Nothing added or subtracted.

Re: Test-N-Tune, X half a dozen!

Have run recently about 10 more passes. Changes are: Lightweight battery, Midwest chassis drag bar, speed inc carpet, sjm abs delete, firecore50 wires.....ET streets are bald and it was acting funky coming out of the hole but I did get a new personal best, 1.56 60ft, 7.20@95. Track wasn't running 1/4 at the time but I'm predicting it was a legitimate 11.30 pass. New changes are removing inner fender supports, removing front sway bar, aluminum radiator, and a full 17"Racestar setup. Inching closer to 10s NA I hope.

Here's some eye candy:

Stock carpet ready to be pulled:



Pulled the gauges to delete the idiot lights:



Letting the new carpet breathe, it does still have some padding under it, but it is a little louder then stock:



Found under the stock carpet.....winning!!!



Lightweight battery getting its first charge:



Simple aluminum flat bar hold down:

Re: Test-N-Tune, X half a dozen!

Truth be told, the radiator swap and inner fender cutting was a kill two birds with one stone kind of deal. The last outing to the track I ripped a huge gash in the bumper. I installed a bracket to move my car ramps closer for when I load my ATVs on my car hauler....and I new it was close but had loaded successfully several times before. This time I wasn't so lucky.......

Ouch:


Did a quick patch and we raced anyway:


But I needed a fix...so I found a place called OnlinePartsBin (or something of the nature) and they did a VIN matched paint and then shipped the bumper for $250. So I took it apart while I waited....lead time was about 2 weeks.



I've always hated the China halo lights so I found a set of OEMs to go back on:



The busted bumper and china lights got hung for decoration:



And, 3 weeks later Fedex drops this beauty off:



Thanks EmblemPros:





Two more random tire pics:

Re: Test-N-Tune, X half a dozen!

Time....7:56......8:05.....8.35.....8.39
60'.......1.59......1.55.....1.67.....1.55
1/8.......7.24......7.19.....7.35.....7.18
MPH......94.18....94.37...93.97...94.24
1/4.......11.40....11.34...11.52...11.32
MPH......118.4....118.7...118.2...118.8

Wheel spin on the 3rd pass, 64/6500 shifts for 1 and 2, then 6700 for 3 and 4. Looks like I gained next to nothing by putting the shifts higher.

Time.....12:17.....12:35......12:46.......12:59
60ft........1.52......1.53.........1.53.........1. 54
1/8th......7.14......7.14..........7.13........7.16
MPH........94.2......94.4.........94.5.........94. 3
1/4........11.30....11.293....11.27......11.32

No changes.
