Ok... so doing some ricer math... Looking at my best time slip:



it took me 6.939 seconds to go from the 60' to the 1/8th.

But looking at your best run it took you 7.142. Difference between us .203

From the 1/8th to the 1/4 it took me 4.863

It took you 4.906 seconds for the 2nd half... Difference between us .043.

So yes, you made up some ground... but even with a good launch and better 60', I don't see a low 13... Perfect run puts you in the upper 13s... maybe mid-13s...

Did you check your DA corrections? You already knew it was cold which likely contributed to your 60-ft times being horrendous but when I looked it up you had a negative DA so it really didn't change much. How big of a burnout are you doing? If the tires were stock I'd stay away from the water-box and get as much heat in the tires anyway. Fronts up to 40psi and I have kept my rears down around 26-25psi on the street tires while drag radials go down to 20psi. I have tried a lot of different ways to launch and the best times I've gotten have really been from not slipping the clutch and instead get the rpm's to about 2500-3000 and when it's go time dump it and slip the tires instead.
It's a preference thing. I was only able to get a few good runs out of the clutch before it would heat up and start to stink before and that would drive me nuts to drop 3 to 4 tenths throughout the night.

Don't ever mistake my sarcasm for putting you down, Darkness. I would love to see your car do the number, there's just more to it than saying look at my mph, lighter tires will cut this much, and magical track(although I hear ATCO tends to be the places that pixie dust flies). The first time I ran a car down a strip was 1985 and the fastest car I've run('67 Camaro tube-chassis with a 509ci Rat and a powerglide with a 4800rpm stall had a 12-bolt that was 40" side to side, spool and 4.88 or 5.13 gears that crossed the scales at 2600lbs give or take depending on what I ate) wouldn't pass tech these days at a good track, but I still ran it. I have one in the works to re-create it only this one's getting the funny-car cage.

I kinda like the rocket-powered 5k pound grocery getter. Just can't wait for Tracy to get Gretchen worked out. Turbos on our cars are going to be incredible if the fuel issue's ever completely worked out.

Amen! I'm keeping the faith for now!
They also are working on a supercharger, apparently, which I am very interested in hearing about the results.

I hope some good news come up sooner than later...ive been considering getting a new R/T Challenger - a dealer had one down here asking $25,900, so it did cross my mind pretty heavily.

But all the v6 Camaros running high to mid 13's on N/A power is making me rekindle my love for this car.

Oh okay. regardless though I trapped 1.5 mph higher which is a big deal in 1/4 racing. I trapped 96 on my stock uncorrected 14.3 run. So the same time but I picked up 5 mph, WITH .4 seconds slower of a 60'.

With a better 60' Ill trap even higher.

Good discussion though but we'll know who is right in a few weeks when we hit up ATCO and I have some tires to use.

The facts are that I trapped WAY higher with a REALLY bad 60'. So the only 100% conclusion that can be drawn is that Im making much more power lol.

I MIGHT try power shifting too. Ive heard that can help your time a tenth or two, more so on a turbo car though.

Yeah I checked the DA as well, looks like the best I can run then is a 13.5ish but again we have to wait until ATCO. I was using goodyear eagle rsas. I didnt go through the water I just did the best burn out I could. It was really only street cars out on Sunday so no one was heating the track up. I talked to a few guys with radials and they werent hooking well so I had no chance. I tried everything I could. Slipping as low as 2,000 rpms and it STILL spun lol.

And indeed when I pulled my 2.0 60' on the pirellis I just dumped it at 2,800 and it just hooked. I probably should have tried that, ah well lol.

And hey you guys will learn quickly at ATCO, whoever meets me, Im a real laid back guy I take criticism well. I know I get it because Im really optimistic, thats just how I am. But trust me I take none of this personally lol Im just here to have fun and do my best to put out the best possible numbers for us "V6ers."

INDEED they are. But to recap. At the time I ran my PB, I had INJEN and MRT 2.0 and thats it. I have since added a couple more mods including the drag radials but cannot get back into the 13's. Mostly bad traction. Which is what I was hoping to cure with the drag radials, but not yet I haven't.
