Sorry Newage. I thought you had an automatic. Yeah, def leave harder than 1300. No doubt that was bogging the car. Practice, practice, practice. You'll def be in the 11's. My car at 545 rwhp went 10.99 at 124.83. So you have room for improvement.


Good luck.

When you ran that 11.3 @ 127 what were your mods and rwhp? Thats pretty darn good. I just wonder how much not letting the car cool down was hurting me. I guess I'm wondering how much of a gain will be made on a cool day with letting the car sit for a while. I'm new to the supercharger thing and from what everyone is saying these things do not like heat. The 1/4 time is one thing, but I was expecting more than 119mph out of the car. I assume the heat has a lot to do with that though.

I was at Milan. I swore 10 years ago I would never go back to Lapeer and I did anyway. The way I look at that track (Lapeer) is if you want to feel good about your car and justify the money you spent on it… that's the place to run. If you REALLY want to know how fast your car is go to a real track like Milan. I know a lot of people do not like to hear that, but it is true. It’s close and convenient for some, but there is no comparison. That track has always been off one way or another. Milan is a true NHRA track that is prepped for drag racing. That is why I was so hesitant on my launch. I was not sure what RPM because I thought I would spin based off running at Lapeer with just headers. I needed to launch a lot harder. I just did not have the time. The track was so sticky I was actually bogging big time out of the hole. My brother was running on DR’s and hot happing 11.70’s with pretty much the same set up and 50 less RWHP on his Mustang. He was getting a best 60ft of 1.81 and could have still come out a lot harder. Whatever they did to prep the track that day I hope they do the next time I am there. We never had the time to cool the cars down. I am going to wait until we have some cooler weather and head back, but with some Nittos this time.

As for launching I am at least to try 2000 rpm’s and go from there. My mph seemed down probably because of the heat. Also, I was comparing it to Lapeer where it was doing 12.52 and a best mph of 115.2 with just headers, CAI, and tune.

i was running 560rwhp, with a kb, so you know my iats are high..i never ran under 124mph with the kb @ 560rwhp{approx a dozen runs} ...actually ran with 660rwhp and could not do any better then the time i posted with the 560rwhp, traction was a issue...more power makes it harder to get traction and not break loose shifting..at least that was what i found on dr,s..tried some 18in dr,s and ran twice on a set of bogarts with 17in drs, with same results..spinning tires..never did get to try some slicks, i,m sure that would of made a big difference with the higher hp..ran in florida , approx 75f when i made the best pass
