TC worked well for me too...

This is a question to Matt Tunetime, or anyone who might be able to answer. I saw he ran the fastest bone stock L99 run but is his/her car a 1ss or 2ss? and any options?

I turned the TC off but didn't use competitive mode either...basically just trying to launch the car myself and slip the clutch...I do want to make a run or two with competitive mode on to see what it can do and then I'll go back to no TC and keep learning.

You are 100% correct, nobody i mean nobody should race without drag radials or slicks imho

politely disagree... Car is a daily driver and I am incredibly lazy.. I like driving to the track..... making my runs... drive home... no tires changes here... and while I have driven in the rain with DRs, it's not some thing I want to do all the time! LOL

Speaking of trap speeds... Any one else have issues with the 20" not playing nice with the trap sensors? One local track has me trapping at 83 to 84 MPH... then went to a different track and it was trapping me at 83, then 94, than back at 83...

an no, i'm not lifting... LOL

Sounds like they have an equipment problem, I don't think the size of the rim could make any difference.

talked to the guy at the track... his theory is with the big wheel and the big gaps between the spokes the beam is some how shining through the wheels... I've had this happen at 2 different tracks.. Did not see this issue at the 3rd track... unfortunately i seem to run the slowest at the 3rd track! LOL!

I know that's right... I'll be dyno-tuning this week, if all things pan out. That'll bring me into some respectable times too.
