Rock Falls, WI
« on: June 15, 2020, 12:37:34 PM »
Had a great time out at the track, even though I was killed by a Demon and dusted by a Duster, the car ran pretty consistent all day even though DA kept creeping up but that might have been me getting a little more familiar with the car.  My only win was against a G8 - it felt good to beat a v8.  It was actually my best run of the day, I put down a 12.59, although bracket racing she would've taken the win because I was trying to get a better reaction time and ended up red lighting.  Oh well, live and learn.

Oh, and if the nice guy in the red SHO is on here, my buddy took a great pic of us in our good ole fashion SHOdown.  Hopefully I'll keep up better once I get that tree down and the GH I/C and EPP intake installed!  In our pic you can see that I just had the chrome deleted too.  A few people gave the SHO compliments about it.

Good stuff.  Your car and mine would run literally neck and neck.  Plus the chrome delete makes these cars look so much better.

After you light up the first staging light, bump forward an inch at a time until you just barely light up the second staging light and stay there. Smash the gas pedal as soon as you see the last yellow light before the green.

Good runs! If you didn't do it this time, get a log next time you run down the track and send it to Matt. He's tweaked my tune a couple times based off track runs.

That's exactly what my buddy told me to do, then I red lighted, so I'm not sure if I was a little too quick on the gas or really have that quick of reflexes.  I would tend to lean toward, got a little too excited.  :)  I appreciate the feedback though, I pretty much went through the checklist that I've found on here... lower amount of fuel, lower tire pressure, etc...  Although, I was full weight, spare tire (the cars not mine) and all.  I found it interesting that it didn't really matter if I used D or S, or whether I turned traction control on or off, they were all very close.

Oh, and I thought about grabbing a log later in the day, so it will be interesting to see what it says since the DA had climbed since the start of racing.  I would love to hear Matt's thoughts on it.  Although, once the IC goes in it will be a new tune as well, back to the logging and tweaking.

Same here, last weekend I red lighted first round of the summer points series, then red lighted again after buying back in. Usually at the place I run you have to have an RT with a zero at the beginning or you are losing, so I tried a little too hard on the light. I wasn't shallow staging tho, I was a few inches past the second bulb being lit up.

Going to try following my own advice this weekend. I'd rather not lose on a red light this weekend.

I've had various results with dragy as far as D or S, and same with traction on and traction off. One week one way will produce faster results and then the next week it's backwards. Last couple trips to the track I've just gone with D and traction on since that leaves me less things to focus on when pulling up to the lights. My best runs ever have all been at 35 psi but that was a different size and brand of tires and different wheels.

HaHa, like Shakira, my hips don't lie!  :)


Ridered, that's interesting about the PSI, I went with 26 and was spinning a little leaving around 2k... but I figured it wasn't that bad.  Well, not as bad as the Demon that made it about 1000ft down the track and must've hit a new gear too hard and spun then slid into the wall.  OUCH!  I told my buddy, I think I'm spinning a bit but there isn't any wheel hop (thanks trans mounts!), he didn't think I was until he was right down next to me when I took off.  He said, yeah... I guess you are spinning a bit, although I'm sure it's tough to hear when you are going up against those big HP cars making all those loud noises.

Yes, they were really good about sending you around if they saw you had street tires, but someone didn't get the memo about not leaving your A/C on in staging and when the GTO before me took off he left two big puddles of water for them to clean up before I pulled up.  I figured that was common knowledge, just seeing condensation on the garage floor should tip you off, but I guess it might be something that you forget when trying to remember everything else.  Heck, I should make a checklist, I'm getting forgetful in my old age.

I get that with the list. 

I run my fronts at 26 psi and my rears at 40 psi when I go the track.  My SHO pulled a 1.77 sixty foot on the factory suspension and rims, and went 12.56. 

I have not been back to the track since I installed the TQ mounts, lighter and wider wheels, DP's with custom mid pipes, and MSD coils.  Hopefully I can squeeze out another coupe tenths and go 12.20.

Wow, that's a good 60', do you run 275/40r20? 

I'd like to get a summer setup in 275's, I've been keeping an eye out for someone selling their Flex wheels in black, then I'll look at some summer tires and keep the all seasons for the winter.

Edited to add:  I'd like to get into the low 12's with my next set of upgrades too.

I was on my Conti's that are on the car right now.  245's.  The drag strip I go to is a NHRA track that runs National Events, so it is prepped really good.  However if I can get that sixty down even more.....
