Yeah. Just got to figure out how to get them off the phone. Did you run any more after I left?

Ran 3 more times actually against the other Camaro we saw out there. That guy didn't skip a beat. He was racing the whole from the time he got there and raced me, and continued racing after I was done.

I can send you the pics to your e-mail at full resolution if you'd like.

How'd you do against the other Camaro? Who else did you line up against and results? Yeah send me the full resolution if you can. Thanks.

My ET's were quicker.
1st race, I barely fouled out and he didn't catch up.
2nd race, I ran a 8.7 and beat him straight up.
3rd race, I missed 2nd gear and he caught up.

I was trying to give him some tips, but I think his best run was a 9.3.

He had a muffler delete, sceptre intake, and predator tune. It was a 6 speed manual as well.

An 8.7?! Good run. I need someone to shoot some video of my launch so I cab see what the car is doing.

When I go back on the 16th I am going to prep a little better (air the tires down, less fuel in the tank, try some higher rpm launches to get the car moving more).

Talked to a lot of folks that say I should be in the 7's once I get the launch down.

Yeah, 8.7 was my best. I'm sure doing some more prepping will help. What RPM are you launching at?

I might go again on the 16th, but I don't think I'll be running again. I chewed up my tires pretty good I think.

Idle off the line. The one time I tried launching at 3000 was when you stomped me. Just sat there and spun. Going to need good clutch and better tires for that kind of launch.

Try launching at 1200-1500 RPM and feather it during the launch. should get much better traction. Ive seen people do that and got some pretty nice 60' times.

Going to experiment with a bunch of different launch techniques and try to find a happy medium. Problem is my power band doesn't really start until about 2500 so I really need to move the launch up quite a bit.

I would say to start experimenting with your launch just under 2000, maybe 1900.
Drop the clutch on your launch, if you try to feather the clutch out, you run a much higher risk of burning your clutch if you are on the throttle at the same time.
Keep the throttle at the same level as you did when you launched it until you start hooking up, then ease into WOT.
The rest is just quick, good timing shifts.

If you find that you are still having way too much wheelspin, try 1800rpm, then 1700, etc. until you find the highest rpm that you can launch at and still hook up.

Your reaction times weren't too bad either, but what I usually do, if I'm actually ready and don't get distracted, is start to go when I see the last yellow light turn on. By the time your body reacts, the green light will be on and you will have a good reaction time.

There's a couple of other fine tuning techniques I have, but these are the main things. I used to race almost every weekend, sometimes twice a week in my '99 SS and I learned a thing or two.

Hey Tim...I thought you were deployed out-of-town...glad to hear you are not. Hey, sorry to crash this thread, but I just posted a new thread for this year's 2012 San Diego International Auto Show (you did last years which I could not make due to just recently moving up to Escondido...I did not make it last year, did I? My mind is going...).


Here is a link to the new thread...

No crashing threads here. The point is to get the San Diego folks together and posting here is perfectly appropriate. I plan to go and several of us have talked about meeting up and cruising down together.

Travis: DET MSCL started another thread about the Auto show to see who is going. I plan on going early morning on the 31st Dec. Got to rest up for New Years Eve.

Armando,

How early on the 31st? I have a fight party the night before and don't want to be dead tired or late...

Also, to clarify in case I was not clear before to DET MSCL. What I meant is appreciate you posting a possible get together in the thread. Rob and I were talking the other day about how hard it is to get people together so anytime someone suggests something that's a good thing.

Travis

Contrary to Travis' belief, I won't be able to make it to the cruise this weekend.
There's a slight chance I can make it out to the drags the following weekend, but not sure yet.
I'll be back from my leave in El Paso on the 29th so I don't see why I can't make it to the auto show on the 31st. Count me in.



...thanks for the invite to the fight party too
