      So, here is who I have on the hook for the Top 10 8v sub-section:
      Todd (crazydubman)
      Joe (race-shop joe)
      Allen (1badimport)
      Drew Foose (taken from the old VWsport list)
      Andrew Stauffer??
      Please post up if you know any 8v cars were cracking out low ET's.
      I gotta dig deep, the Brazil, SA and PR guys are nuts, so I need to revisit all areas.

      Shouldnt Kris's Scirocco be on that list? Think he's running 12.7's or so..

      Go back and read the Top 50 list, and then read the Top 10 8v sub-section.
      Then come back and tell us who should be where, and on what list. [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      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 [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]
      *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. [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]
      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

    17. 11-15-2008 04:36 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. [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      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.
