oh wow, you could have dropped that psi A LOT lol.

IMO whatever your time slip says, that is what you ran. Which is why I'm jealous of those guys that run in negative or close to 0 DA..

I thought about it but I wouldn't have a way to bring it back up before I left the track, although I am pretty sure there is a gas station close that I could always fill it up at. Once I get some trailing arms and make a few passes with those I'll start messing with the tire pressure to see what gives me the best 60ft. I would invest in some DRs but i rarely go to the track.

You can drive around with low PSI for a bit its not a big deal, just dont hit any serious bumps or potholes.

Nice run though for a basically stock car.

Red light is not a big deal on test and tune runs. Clock still runs your time. The red light is for head to head racing. Your time is still goood to post.

And yes, BONE STOCK is just that........BONE STOCK.

the timer does not start timing 1/4 mile et till the car breaks the beams. he could redlight or sit there for a minute and it wouldn't affect his ET at all.

Didn't know that, I thought it applied to all of the "official" fast lists as the "unofficial" one said red light runs count... I'll have to pay closer attention to my red light slips now.

That's the rules when I took over the V8 fast lists, which has now been changed.

I just picked up a 3.27 diff from an '11 a6 v6 car... That would still count as "bone stock" right?

Haha... No really. I bought an auto v6 rear end... I'm still at a disadvantage to the LT trim, and 1LS guys...

Just kidding. It is an interesting question, that would put you backnon par with a 1LS and the LTs. Not my call though.

Yes, that would potentially put me on the same playing field... Although I'll never get to experience what Sport Mode feels like... I really wonder if it makes a difference in the 1/4 times?
