10.2-3 is awfully fast. I'm adding the SC and going to run meth, I'm looking for 10.3-.4 with all the stuff i've got. I had nitrous (100 shot) and best i could do was 11.4 with a 1.73 60' @ 124. Granted my tune had a lot left in it, but a full second with a +50 on the shot seems to be a little to generous of an increase over what I experienced.

i ran 11.3 at 130's (cant remember the mph off the top of my head) with 1.9 60'. on a slowly progressed 125 shot on factory p zeros . the da that day was 1600 to 2000 what time i was there.
i am pretty sure i can cut off a big chunk of that with a dr. and skinneys thats gonna come down abit. thats with a very safe tune. plus was not spraying till i was in 3rd. clutch wouldnt hold.
im gonna hope for a good 10.5 to 10.7 once all is lined out. but on a good pass with weather it should go faster. i think with a 150 shot i can get 135 or so on mph.

Are you guys sniffing the nitrous or just spraying it?

You think you're gonna spray a 150, make what, 600 wheel, and go 135 mph? Ain't going to happen, sorry.

this is my fast n/a pass ill try to find slips for the nitrous passes or video.
factory tires , cam , full exhaust ,tune, rotofab. i got no reason to lie dude.
ive only been to a prepped track 3 times in my life. but im pretty sure its possible to pick up a quite a bit with a radial , skinnies , and more spray. i may be wrong but i think i can. guess we will see soon enuff.
135 or close i said.
i know on a 125 shot my best mph was 131.xx i figure with 80 lbs lighter wheels and more hp it should pick up a few mph. also better weathers gonna help me too . we see - da here sometimes.

but i mean i could be wrong but i dont see how it will go backwards.

The nitrous is not a big bottle of keyboard duster, you're not supposed to huff it

I don't think that you're lying, or that you would. I just don't think you'll go that fast. Maybe you will. Claims are claims, until you go and do it no one knows but the burden of proof falls on you.

lol, thats true. but as i said i think thats what it will do .

the car pulls hard on the bottle. i know i was running a 75 shot for a while and my first time at the track my n/a mph was 116-117 and on a 75 shot sprayin all the way almost was 124-125.

my 60' is where ill have to gain most of my time tho. i gonna shoot for a 1.6 . remember now this is my goals . im not gonna do no more power till i get the car where it can use what power its got. as u know alot of ppl (90% on here) just throw money at them and power and dont maximize what that got alrdy.

As I'm sure you know the faster you go the results are less with the increases in power. With a 55 shot I picked up 1-2 mph and about .2. And a bunch of other issues.

I'm convinced there's something to be in the tranny tunes on the autos. We see that rhinos car flat out works. I also know my car dropped 2 tenths on his tune. It's not lean or dangerous either. I let him pick the converter this time. I'm hoping for a Personal record with fall air. Early '14, it's on like DK. Cam/heads time. I'm not saying HE makes it fast all by himself...I'm just sayin he is a good mad scientist to have in your corner.

Jamie, I haven't gotten anything done with the suspension yet, but I am starting with the basic bolt in parts, subframe bushings and rear sway. Then Ill see how that goes. If I have to have coil overs, so be it. lol.

I just got done installing a Cometic progressive controller and ZL1 pump for the gas, and from here on out, track visits will be on MS109 fuel. All my posted dyno numbers for na and spray were on 92 oct.

It made 649.1/697 on pump gas and a 150 pill, and 7* timing out on the stock fuel pump.

like i said clutch and tires before it will do that but im gonna say 10.8 consistant. also my car is a m6 so mph should be better then a auto.

i got some local that just knows what it takes i guess.
fastest c6 m6 car and fast n/a c6.
the fastest g8 .
then another 5th gen that gonna be hard not to get the fastest m6 car when he takes it back out. he alrdy knocking at the door last outting. just waiting for our other buddies c6 to get done before he brings it out . had some engine problems .
so i got guys that know what it takes to do stuff. very experienced guys around me that dont care to help and know what it takes to get to the top of the fast list.

I'm sure they'll figure it out. No rush now. It's 90 freaking degrees. I backed out of a rental for tomorrow. I'm taking it off the track until the late fall. I'm done with the heat.
