MSR Houston

Oh no...I have a new obsession. Road racing. Who knew curves could be so fun too. These damn car obsessions are getting expensive. As now I need to rethink my brake Here is some video's from my event...bad thing about road racing is you get hours of footage, so I tried to cut down as much as possible. Still over 10 min.

So as a result of the mile, I did buy a custom RPM transmission. It started as their TR6060 level 6, but then they made 5th and 6th power gears for the mile (I think they are ZR1 gears). With the new transmission, I should not have to change out my driveline anymore. 1-4 are perfect for the 1/4 with my 3.73 rear. And 2-6 are perfect for the standing mile...6th gear will run out around 210mph (I just want 200).

I've also concluded on a wet nitrous kit. Between the new trans helping me get into gear and a little boost in power, I'm hoping to finally get to 200...then i'll be done with the standing mile and only have 2 obsessions...9s 1/4 with a manual trans (which I think is going to require a new motor, so may be a while) and never get passed on a road race .

Anyway here is a video from MSR. One good thing about my 1/4 mile obsession is I was the fastest car in my group...which was nice.



Here is just one lap where I was chasing down a C7 corvette:


And then here is one my friend took from the grand stands of the C7 going off track trying to keep up ...highlight of my day (no damage done):
http://youtu.be/aJNF6t6_tag

I'll definitely be back...

So Tracy at RX sent me a bigger chiller (30 plate vs 20 plate). I have not had time to change it out yet. I'm still little worries about the competition switch. Haven't had any luck with it. Going to try and fix it when I change out the chiller. I hope to do it next week. I'll post up results.

I definitely appreciate Tracy working with me on this. He gets a bad wrap, but I think he means well. Just hard for these performance shops to go from local to national overnight.

Road race at NOLA Motorsports park

I went road racing again Sunday. I'm really liking this. I have my StopTech rotors and cobalt friction brake pads on the way. Unfortunately I may have needed them Sunday...I ran off the track going into turn a little hot... There was minor damage...you can see in the video the back panel peeled off a bit. However, as I was trying to clean off the mud and grass from underneath...I wasn't paying attention and jack slid off and punctured my radiator... What a dumb ass...

Video of my fasted lap and when I slid off track (from rear and front):
http://youtu.be/eDSs2GJabEQ


I installed my custom RPM transmission last week...it worked fine, but I still can't shift to 5th over 6K rpm...wth?

I'll be working on my new nitrous kit, brake upgrades, and bigger chiller between now and my next drag race event on Jan 26th at Royal Purple raceway (Home of Camaro Fest 2014 ).

All the RX kits I removed had the wrong switch, he is still using my idea but an On/Off switch so if yours is wired the same you need to get an ON/ON switch. This gives the Freon solenoid ground in one position and the LED ground in the other. I could send you an old diagram or you could go to my new setup that has 2 relays primarily for ¼ mile. Let me know if I can hook you up, one of my wiring harnesses would not fit, things are in a different location but the diagram still applies.

Sure. Please send me the diagram and i'll check it out when I get around to testing it.

Thanks!

PMJ's 2SS/RS Whipped 416 M6 aka BlackWidow [COTW 6/10/13]

So I didn't get to install my Nitrous and brake upgrades over the holidays like I hoped, but I did get my RPM transmission installed and repaired my radiator from stupid incident at NOLA Motorsports park last Sunday.

Anyway, I made it out to RPR (hope of the next C5 Fest) Friday night and set a new personal best 10.72 @ 137. It was ridiculously busy...I was there 7 hours never got out of line and got 3 runs in. Here are some videos:

My first 2 runs...lots of angles:
http://youtu.be/MxYy2s7IUfE

Just my 10.72 run...
http://youtu.be/k8T2E-Mij2U

Here is the video of my 3rd run. I paired up with Jaime in BeaSSt...he took the hole shot, but he missed 3rd gear. It would have been a great finish. I ran a 10.8.

I raced last Sunday at Royal Purple again at the Texas Speed Syndicates Fast 30 event... I just got my nitrous system installed and was excited.

Turns out I brought a broken car...my whipple belt tensioner pin broke and I wasn't getting any boost. Made a new pin from a bolt. Drilled hole there the original pin was and was back in business.

Nitrous increased my trap 7 mph...to 144. And lowered my et .3. But I think there's more to be gained.

Looking good!
I see your getting your 60 foot times to 1.5's! that's not bad at all!
What gear are you running for the 1/4 mile, the 4.11's still?
I was thinking if I ran a 1.5 60 foot I'd be at 12.2's! Man I can't wait to I really dig in mine! Track opens in a couple months.
Can't wait to try my new twin disc clutch!
Have fun be safe.
George.

Thanks George! I'm running a ZL1 driveline with the 3.73 rear gear. I'm crossing the 1/4 at 6500 rpm in 4th. I think the slicks give me more confidence on my launches, so i'm launching harder. But i drove a friends car on drag radials and pulled a 1.6 60'...so i think it has more to improving technique then necessarily the tires. Although i'm still happy with the purchase of the slicks.

It was at an event last April that i was talking to a guy (friend now) describing his launch technique...i've been trying to master ever since. Definitely helped. He runs 9s in a manual (Corevette)! The first time i tried it that night, i broke a stock axel . Ironic thing is i had my ZL1 driveline at home...just didn't have time to install yet.

THe ZL1 seems to hold up (and my RXT clutch). THe technique is simply on the launch to slowly release the clutch as you slowly move to open throttle. Feathers the clutch and keeps the engine power up. My biggest problem is a mental block concerned with spinning the tires....i very rarely get to WOT in 1st gear. That's something i'm going to concentrate on my next trip to the track!

That's even better with 3.73's, did you try a 4.11 gear? I thought you did? My mistake if not.
I'm thinking of putting the 3.91's in my stock diff untill I can get the HammerHead, I already got the axles installed, just have to change the stubs that go into the diff to use my axles. I was going to go with the ZL1 diff, but I wanted to piece it together.
I broke a axle at the line too, I even got a video (in car) of it I will post when I get home from work.
I love the twin disc Monster clutch, I'm hoping I can slip it a little better then the single. I leave the line at only 2500 RPM, due to stock tires & gears, my average is about a 2.3 without killing it, wheel hop is violent if any better, with the stock low profile tires!
I'm used to an auto at the track so this is a learning experience with me too, but you got a whole lot more POWER then me, I'll get there soon enough!

Here's the video link when I broke an axle-


Here's one spinning 1st-


Here's one of my stock decent runs-

No I never had 4.11. I went from stock 3.45 to my current 3.73 and then to the auto 3.27 for the mile.

That 12.7 was stock? Wow. Best I did stock was low 13.4. Now that was 100 degree summer, but still. It took me long tube headers and drag radials to break 13...

Just bolt on's, LT headers, 3'' exhaust an a CAI, with a dyno tune & I think I had my trailing arms, toe links and sub-frame an diff bushings on it then?
Hardest part is getting my fat car a good 60' with stock gears and tires!
I love the way yours launches! If you did have 4.11's you would probably be spinning, but maybe not with your slicks, but should definitely lower your 60' times, but I know about the mental block of spinning the tires, I have the same problem! It ruins the whole run!.
It was also a cool night an I put 5 gallons of race fuel I think. It seems to get faster when hot lapping it, maybe the AIT's are lower since I'm not sitting in line to long for it to climb and have more timing = more power, I assume.
I'm just going into 4th gear before I pass the line @ 112 mph. Can't wait to get back to the track!

Been busy getting ready for the Texas Mile on March 21-23. Returned my RPM transmission back to RPM so correct my 6th gear. Its now a .71...5th is a .86...so the plan is to leave in my 3.73 rear end and run the mile 2nd - 6th...vs. swapping to the stock auto 3.27 and running 1-5. Hope it works...the ZL1 rear is so much stronger.

I dyno'd today at Fast Automotive...937 rwhp. Never got good numbers because kept spinning the tires...even with folks sitting in the trunk...so my torque numbers were low in the mid 800s, but previous torque was into the 900s. I was also around 17# of boost vs. the 18 I see on the track, so I'm guessing I'm around 950 hp & torque on the track...hoping that will get me to 200 mph!!!

I also installed my stoptech slotted rotors and cobalt friction pads. Primarily for road racing and autox, but should help me stop at the mile as well.

I also installed my larger RX chiller. This one is working much better than the original. My IATs are staying around 125 and actually drop with the Meth and Nos spraying through the whipple.

I got a new set of Goodyear Supercar G2 tires (since my ones from October took a beating in a few road race events).

So new wheel alignment and I should be ready to go.

If you live in Houston, check out the guys at Fast Automotive. Great group of guys.

So new wheel alignment and I should be ready to go.

If you live in Houston, check out the guys at Fast Automotive. Great group of guys.
Good luck on the Texas mile, looks like you got it together. With those numbers and upgrades you should get some really good times!

I been having some noise on the let side of engine on hard acceleration- found out my left motor mount went.
Do you still have the phadt motor mount's you removed?
Or I'd like to get the style you have now, the polyurethane mounts. I'd appreciate if you can you provide me where you got them and who makes them, thanks!

I do still have the pfadt motor mounts. I also have my stock mounts i'll give you...if you want. I bought the prothane mounts used. I did a quick search and looks like you can buy them here http://www.prothanesuspensionparts.com/. I also bet if you have a favorite sponsor on the forum, you can call them and they'd be able to get them for you.

Let me know if you want to buy the pfadt or if you want me to send you my stock mounts.

Thanks, I just read your post on the one I posted in the thread. I would definitely buy the pfadt mounts, however it is my daily driver, and I been reading that they do soften up after a little while, but I don't think I want that vibration on a daily driver, did you notice a big difference when changing from the pfadt to the prothane mounts? I like to give the engine some movement so it wont be to harsh on the drivetrain parts as well, but I don't want to deal with that kind of harshness until I get it into track condition, meaning after I do all my mods an it becomes a weekend a track driven car. I think the stock mount are way too cushy, but they do absorb vibration, there's liquid in the stock mounts, gives it that cushy ride. Not good for performance so I really want to stay away from the stock mounts.
I guess if you want to get rid of them for $160.00 I'd do it, but I may do the same thing you did! swap them out with the prothane mounts! so I may just go with them? confused!
