Yeah, I saw that too... :-/ maybe next week for me. Might have a small group going Tuesday.

I think I am going to try the factory launch control. See if it helps the turbos spool at all when launching.

oh i do too. I have DSS 1400hp axles installed already, so those arent going to be what goes.

It will either be the rear end again or the driveshaft. I have bent all the bolts on the driveshaft twice already. So Those are my current weak points.

well on the way up to the track, there were a few more clouds and the temperature dropped about 15-20 degrees. And as the night grew, it got cooler and cooler. Although the DA was through the roof, it still was a decent day. Here are my times in order as i went.

11.429 @ 125.80 - 1.951 60ft
11.313 @ 125.69 - 1.847 60ft
11.273 @ 126.81 - 1.971 60ft
11.184 @ 125.73 - 1.786 60ft <-- NEW PB
11.441 @ 126.76 - 1.916 60ft


i was launching more aggressively which seemed to do the trick. But i ended up over powering the tires a few times. On my new personal best, my back end actually kicked out pretty hard as i was spinning. So that was my 10 second pass if i didnt spin.

But overall it was fun and a good time. I really enjoyed tonight other then the fact that someone took my wheel lock :-/ so i had to drive home on my race wheels lol

LOL memorialized forever. On the best pass (12.54@111.99 1.93) I left off idle and still spun.

Now I feel like building a 9 second 4th gen for 10 grand (I could ya know).

Ahh time for different tires. Any L99'ers running 1.5-1.6's on Nitto 05R's

Your 18" Nitto 05's seemed to be working well congrats again. Did you find the wheel lock?

I think also the next time I run I'll start logging to check over the shift points. I'm not dissatisfied with the mph but always nice to check over stuff. I spun so bad that the car flew threw the gears.
