      when you can't pull your head out of the seat 1st and 2nd its a damn good feeling

      it feels awesome to not be at the bottom of the pack anymore

      hoping to get a couple things sorted this week and get back tehre next weekend to see if i can shave off some more time

      Good stuff, glad to see this finally happen.

      Like Joe said, 1.68 is getting out for sure.
      It will be interesting to see where you pick up ET from next.

      Did you get to roll it on the scales?
      I think that is the only thing I need to get from you.

      Well I skipped right over my goal of 13.2 and went 13.14@103.56 today! I'm happy with my car now, haha. Can still get a lot better on the 60' only got a 1.9 that pass.

      Edit: scatch that just went 13.07 w/ a 1.868 60'! Finally..

      nice keep it up. nobody has been 12s on a stock trans with no diff

    14. 11-23-2008 12:31 PM #154
      /\ 13.07, it must be the FASTEST POSSIBLE that a stock trans/diff can take a n/a VR j/k there's gonna be about 30 12 second VR's come next season, and maybe some lookin for 11s

      Does anyone else find it odd that Crazydub is BARELY pulling 4th before going through the traps with a 3.94? its scary how similar those passes sound to when i was running the stock r&p... once i put the 3.94 in, i was goin through the traps around 6000, having shifted into 4th right after the 1/8th.

      ill have to check it out. problem is i don't have a working tach (tach output from ECU is not set right) so i really have no idea what RPM my car is running through the traps at. plans for winter might be a 4.24.

      i will say though i did run a pass and stayed in 3rd topping out at 98.

      you have to remember i am shifting at 8k


    16. 11-23-2008 12:48 PM #156
      He has the new .5mm ply slicks that grow to 26" around 80mph.

      After looking at the numbers, he should be able to trap ~108 @8000rpm. Not sure how high he was turning it. That depends on him having a 1.31 3rd, and the slicks growing a little bit

      edit...damn you todd for ninja posts


    17. 11-23-2008 12:49 PM #157
      thats exactly was i was thinking, you are reving that thing up pretty high to get through the traps in 3rd with a 3.94, but at this point it looks like you will need a 5.30 gear like a honda or whatever they use

    18. 11-23-2008 12:54 PM #158
      how bout a 6.33 gear??? 6th gear, 8000rpms, 122mph

      So, i take back what i said before... i guess im just not used to revving these things as high as you are...it adds up. Not taking into consideration the expansion of the tires this is what I came up with.

      your car on 23s @ 7800 rpms (highlighted and red font) would definetly pass through the traps in 3rd no problem

      and 8000rpms for fun

      the only thing i cant (im lazy right now) is figure out how much RPM you are dropping between shifts and whether its falling out of the power band or not... might think about this a lil more later

      this is more the sound i was used to with 3.94

      ya it seems like my car is breaking into uncharted territory on the vr6 front. powerband wise etc. ill see if i can get the tach sorted out for next weekend. i was running 8.5psi in the tires and because if a faulty valve stem i was only running 20lbs in the rear skinnies. thats why you see the rear bouncing a bit on takeoff that will be resolved this week so i can get about 30-35psi in the rears to not lose so much momentum. hoping i get my solid alum motor mounts in before next weekend. still waiting for them to come in. you guys think the ass is squating too much? should i step up to a higher spring rate than 525lb GC's?

      as for the RPM drop, a 4.24 is definitely in the future but it feels like it is still pulling hard when i shift. granted with a powerband curve like a SCer i guess it would.

      all you would have to do is punch in at 103.5 in 4th where would you be. just get the RPM/speed breakdown graph and it should be fairly simple.

      hey Kris. did you get any pictures yesterday?

    23. 11-23-2008 03:27 PM #163
      I got one I think, forgot to take more. I'll get some next weekend if the weather is still good.

    24. 11-23-2008 03:27 PM #164
      i dont think anything is wrong with the suspension setup if you're pulling 1.6s with it... my skinnies dont have a max pressure rating on em, but i've always put em up to 50 psi or so... i dunno if that's a good or bad thing tho

      What did you do, drive it off the shift light with a 8K chip?

      haha. no actually i was trying to listen to where it was in the rpm range. hit the limiter a number of times though. it was a bit of a chore but it turned out ok. ill be talking with 034 this week and see what the problem could be.

      main problem si that i didn't know if i was under or over reving so who knows whether i was shifting where i should have been

      i was at 20 in the rear tires because of a faulty broken valve stem in the drivers side wheel. they will be up around 35psi next weekend. getting the valve stem replaced.

      just seems in getting a bit of bounce off the line so ill try the tire pressure then possibly up the rear spring rate. only at 400 now so. i could try soem 650's or somethign next

      Indeed, 2nd lite them right up! 4k launch was a bit high for me though 3500'ish seemed to work best. Probably because the track was cold.

      Yeah I was wondering if anyone had the good/bad/ugly on the WaveTrac diff. The Honda guys seem to like them and the price is right. Any word on the VW front?
