took the Conti back to the strip just for fun
« on: September 04, 2019, 10:25:44 AM »
I have been drag racing my Mustang for the past couple of years and just using the Continental for a comfy daily driver.   Brainerd Raceway had their last "street legal drags" last week so I decided to run the Conti again just for fun.   There were 217 cars there so I had to wait in the staging lines for what seemed like an eternity.   Just running Brad's 93 octane tune, we got into the 12s in spite of 2400 DA and crazy high IAT.

Mustang runs 11.8s at around 119 in 2400 DA.  We have a couple of bracket racing events in October when the DA will be better.

If tuned:  Take note of the strategy code as you return to stock (including 3 bar MAP to 2 bar MAP) -> take car in & get it serviced -> check strategy code when you get car back -> have tuner update your tune if the strategy code has changed -> reload tune -> ENJOY!
