    Thread: Naturally Aspirated Top 1/4 Mile List.

    1. 11-13-2008 02:39 PM #106
      lookin at this peaked my interest for the 12vs

      06. 12.83 @ 103.65mph - Bill Warburton - 1995 GTI - 2.8L VR6 - Street Car - 2346 lbs. - Retired

      08. 12.99 @ 103.00mph - Miguel Vinuela - 1988 GTI - 2.8L VR6 - Street Car - Retired

      09. 13.04 @ 101.00mph - Chris Palumbo - 1990 GTI - 2.8L VR6 - Street Car - 2230 lbs. - Retired

      10. 13.07 @ 102.77mph - R.J. Parker - 1996 GTI - 2.8L VR6 - Street Car - 2360 lbs. - Under Water!

      These times were run several years ago... the trap speeds are really nothing to gawk at 101 to mid 103...

      to most, a couple mph here and there doesnt seem like much, but i remember running the black car and could never squeeze over 103mph out of it, now we're talkin 106+ upwards of 107 with similiar mods and even MORE weight than we were running at the time. Air quality improve in the past couple years???

      07. 12.83 @ 105.48mph - Paul Kiernan - 1995 GTI - 2.8L VR6 - Street Car - 2450 lbs. - Active

      04. 12.69 @ 106.79mph - Matt Ivan - 1995 GTI - 2.8L VR6 - Street Car - 2380 lbs. - Active


      I really think about this mainly because i know how fast my black car was, and i know how fast my hatch is now, and it's night and day. depending on the pass, these guys are within 1mph of what my hatch is trapping, and that is impressive in my eyes
      *edit, i just remembered that paul is running a race-shop head, so there is something to be said about that, but i really havnt seen much info on Matt (vw1320s) setup

      Yes, it is night and day, and a lot has changed in the past years.
      I know your answer, but that best left for them to address.

      Just for conversation sake, I have trapped higher than the ET on this list, but never as high, and consistent as these guys have been doing.

      Here's the thing, when does MPH even matter?

      actuall my black car went 103 with the 276 cams. then a week later it sucked a valve. the compression was very low. around 120 across the board! i think with a fresh bottom end, that car would have went 105 on a good day. but hey, that car was thrown together in a weekend!!!

      The mph is because we've been around long enough we're not scared of breaking anything anymore. Got balls?

      you guys always talk about launchin on streets at 2800-3000... i could never make anything happen under 4500... go figure... s'all good though

    12. 11-15-2008 05:36 PM #117
      all depends on the clutch, stock clutch im leaving at 5200 on drag radials. with a good clutch i was at 5200 on the slicks 1.95 vrs 1.66, i dont think you will get past the 1.7s on a stock clutch, slips too much

      Yeah, 28/3000 on the radials just worked out well for me back then, a bit higher for the drag radials.

      I am not nice to clutches, and I bring the throttle out hard while still on the clutch.
      So who knows what kind of other launch that would even be equivalent to.

      There is a reason why I use the clutch I use, because I feel it works best with how I drive it.
      I think I would eat sh*t with an unsprung nasty puck set up.

      Well I went back out yesterday... got the MPH I wanted but still can't get out of the hole to save my life. Guess such is life peg legging with a stock diff and low track temp. Found a few more pounds to take out as well. I also put the stock intake back in (down to the Purolater filter) and it seemed to be better then the filter on a stick. I really want a 13.2 before I put the gears in... theres still a few track days left to find the driver mod

      On a stock diff? I can't even heat up both tires What pressure were you running? I messed around between 18 down to 12PSI.

      I tried messing around with launch RPM and slipping the clutch but I keep getting 2.0's best was a 2.001. Seems if I launch over 3k I get too much spin, under 2,500 and it doesn't go anywhere. So I've stuck with the 2,800ish.

      I will get to some updates later this week.

      I just put a feeler out to the 8v and 2.0 forum to try and cough up any cars that I may have overlooked, or was not aware of.

      If anyone on the current list/s has a recent update, a discrepancy with their information, etc., etc., please post here with time slips and details so I can all this tightened up soon.

      Thanks.

      Peloquin but with a 3.94 final I'll call that a wash. You need to ride the clutch out hard, just like on regular streets. I ran mine at 12psi cold.

      Thanks, I'll give it a try next outing. Be nice to drop ET with what I've got before throwing more money, time, and parts at it.

      Good times, what's the basics of your current setup?


    22. 11-17-2008 05:50 PM #127
      good times sky, like he said its a whole different ball game with the open diff on drag radials. i hear ya on that one legger, you cant tell what tire is spinning in the burnout. ive found the best on the bfgs around 12-15 psi and my new mts im running 18-20 psi, no need to go any lower

    23. 11-17-2008 06:00 PM #128
      as far as the burnout goes... ive always turned the wheel back and forth while the tires are spinning, it tends to help make both tires spin with the open diff.

      You can see it a little bit here (moreso on the second burnout, you can see how the power transfers)(this is on 22x8 slicks, but its the same technique)
      http://video.google.com/videos...ab=wv#


      The flip-side of that is that i've heard people say that will throw you diff out the side of the case, but it never happened to me

      I thought about that and didn't because I thought the same thing about my axles and diff...

      1st, I wouldn't even go as far as to call it a burnout.

      Well, the 8v's will go on when I get time this weekend.
      I found nothing that I already didn't know.

      This week I did come across another 12v banger.
      That car may be linked to a 16v that I was trying to track down in the old topic.

      Then that reminded me, I was still trying to nail down a time for the ABD drag truck.

      I have talked to ABD in the past, but I am still yet to see an exact time, time slip, or video. It's like there is this big cloud surrounding that truck. Some claim high 12's, then there is talk of deep 12's, while others mention it was always breaking, and never got out of the 13's. There was even a quote that the truck went "11's with 12 of the 16 valves bent" too.

      Anyone???
