WhippleCharged L99 Best and Worst runs from 10-19

Took the car out Friday night Low 60's temp 1500 Altitude.
Had 1 run where I actually got the launch right 1.88 60 ft
then started to loose it going into 3rd , decided to let out.

Best of the night was a 12.66 @ 117
with a pitiful 2.21 60Ft and hit the rev limiter on the 2-3 shift

Really wanted a low 12 @ 120 but I just wasn't able to get my act together.

If i could have held it straight on the 1.88 60 ft pass maybe a 12.2 ?

Car has Whipple at 8-9 lbs boost
1 7/8 headers iwth high flow cats
Cold Air intake

Corsa Axle Back
Stock tires at 27 PSI little burnput to clean them, just enough throttle/brake to take the slack out of the driveline maybe 1000 rpm, then roll into it.
TC and Stable Track off.

Didn't try with TC on.

Did a couple paddle shifts and a couple in M but auto shifting.
Biggest problem was trying to get enough throttle so it didn't shift premature, but still not spin.

I run a M6 and do a burnout with all tractions off, when I launch I go into competetive mode. Insurance policy....... I recommend it, seen a few people eat the wall. My 2 cents. Good luck next time!

Thanks for posting, I've wondered what I'd run if I just added a blower.
