      I'll be hitting up the track tuesday night and doing everything I can to get down into the 14s.
      Figured out that I can lose around 170lbs. by removing the spare and foam with tools, entire rear seat, and the front passenger seat.
      If I can get ahold of some steelies I may run 2 in the back to get rid of some rotational weight but I'm goin to keep the goals with 225s up front so I can get a good launch still.
      Not really sure what to expect I just hope I can do alittle better than 15.1 atleast. I'll post up what happens when I get home tuesday night.

    10. 03-28-2010 11:18 PM #60
      This needs some jetta love. No jetta cars are up there. Is it just because of the extra weight or just no one with a jetta really mods/ takes it to the tracks?

      well considering u have more and maybe better mods than me you definitely have a better chance. I have no new mods since my last run so all I can do is drive better. Let the battle for the 14s begin

      Best I could pull out of 3 runs was a 15.2@92 tonight. Hopefully next Tuesday will be a little cooler and I'll have a 1/4 tank of gas instead of 3/4

      I think once I get my sub setup out next time along with all the seats and spare and throw some stealies on the rears I'll have done just about everything I can within reason.
      If I still can't get into the 14s it's time for another engine mod lol.

      Another note on my weight reduction
      Stock curb weight for an '08 manual 5 speed is 2975lbs.
      I've removed:
      Spare w/ tools ~35lbs.
      Entire rear seat ~70lbs.
      Front Passenger seat ~65lbs.
      Stock Mufflers ~25lbs.
      9.75 gal of gas ~58.5lbs.
      engine cover ~5lbs.
      Total = 258.5lbs. removed
      2975lbs - 285.5lbs = 2716.5lbs.
      add 22lbs for my skidplate and my car weighs in at about 2,738.5lbs.

      Sorry for the HUGE delay in updating work has been killing me with overtime. My car ran like #$@% and then I popped out the vagcom and did a scan....guess who needs to get his coils replaced under VW's program My R/T were nice got a few .1's and unfortunately red lit once with a -0.0012 but still got my trophy and a kill sticker. Best time was my 1st run (before the CEL popped up) and was a 16.18@85mph CEL popped up on the return lane. Threw the Jetta on the scales on the way back and realized I was pig heavy. Car was 3600lbs with me in it!
