Okay, just a quick question for you guys, it may have been answered already so forgive me if it has... I'm noticing that all of the top times, have relatively the exact same performance parts installed... Injen CAI/ ARH longs/trifecta tune standing out atm, and the catback.... is there something drastically different about these parts performance-wise that set them apart from the others? especially the injen cold air... i know it's one of the only long tube intakes, but is it really so much better? And why are there no standard transmissions anywhere at the top? is just no one posting with different parts and transmissions? or is the automatic with these ^ parts that much more superior? That would be sad if us V6 owners were limited with such "cookie cutter" options just to compete.

the vast majority of cars sold are autos .the trifecta tune does wonders for that tranny from what members report. totally worth it for that alone. the long tubes give a lot more gains than stock or shorties. as for the injen it is proven to make a bit more power than some of the others. but overall we are somewhat limited in the parts available right now so yes everyone is pretty much using the same stuff as there is only so much to choose from. in time maybe there will be more options.

Again nice job guys.

Corrected DA. For whatever it is worth. (now that I have it easy to update).

I just found the pics thanks to HDRS. And yes, rtcatman it's a great way to remember that day! It was COLD! lol

Great photos! I feel like I'm on sesame street. You know...one of these things is not like the other skit? LOL!

Once again, it was a shock and an honor for those guys to ask me to be in a photo with them. I'm humbled by the Camaro guys! Go figure?


Your friend,
Tony

I have read every page of this and it sounds like you all are having a BLAST!! I need to get in on this. Just wondering that Trifecta Tune to the Tranny does it seem to help in the launch, later part of run, or do you seem notice it through out the entire run guys? I notice a lot of you seem to have it.

Also Gretchin you are the first I have seen with the Turbo. I will be real interested to see how your times work as you go, especially if you increase the boost. Very nice that is my dream someday to add the Turbo

The car shifts a bit harder... doesn't do much for the launch. As always, that part is (mostly) in the driver's hands!

HMM I have a pretty hard shift in sport mode with the '11. I wonder if they adjusted at GM or if could possibly be harder with this tune. IDK but any improvement is welcome improvement no matter right. LOL

Maybe take a trip to St. Louis and GAteway International Raceway. Hmmmm.

Just run the track twice and then add up the times.

I am too lazy to search through all the pages, so are all the times corrected under "Bolt ons"?

Also, I went to Zmaxx in Charlotte today and the dragtimes website does not have the track in their database...atleast I couldn't find it in the dropdown.

Not bad. Need a 60' closer to 2.00. Our cars run much better in cooler temps, 40-50*. DA is high.

All my best runs were with the DA on the minus side.

You may see good temps and DA at Fayetteville.

Blade, got to get those 60' times down, but then again you knew this already. Heat up those tires. Another choice would be to drop some of the unsprung weight from those 20" wheels you are using.

Blade, doesnt make sense you are .6 tenths slower than someone with just intake + catback. Are you using those paddle shifter buttons?

Blade..........few more things to make sure of.

1. Run 93 octane. Anything less and timing can be pulled from the engine. This as you know has been proven countless times by a few of our V6 experts.

2. Run you front tires at around 42 PSI or even a little more.

3. Run your rear tires at around 30 PSI. Need to experiment with this one.



good luck.

Yea.....The DA is horrendous at this track. 695 ft above sea level and you could feel the heat soak creep in around 1:30 PM.

Fayetteville is only 100 ft above, so crossing my fingers. I am also hoping to get a good idea next weekend because there will be a bigger sample of stock v6 and bolt on modified v6s.

I also had a full tank of gas on these runs.

Yea my cousin said the same thing, work on the 60' times and the rest of it will work out.

Nope using the sport mode tuned by Vince.

1. Would I need to retune for 93 octane?
2 & 3 My cousin suggested the same thing, my tires were at 34 PSI all around. I am also going to try power braking higher than 1500, maybe around 2000.

Ok here is another timeslip



Car #88 was another members car, who has the RS package as well thus the same wheels and tires. He ran a couple laps yesterday and last week, and he was getting 15.5 secs runs both weekends. The DA conditions were similar.

You guys can see in the slip that I am a .789 secs faster than him. On his next run we were side by side, but 1 car apart and same numbers popped up. So I am guessing that my car has had some serious improvements over a stock v6. But the conditions here at Zmax are kicking the Quarter mile times' ass.

I've found that heating up the tires real good makes a difference. I used to do a little burnout until I met up with HDRS who does a massive burnout before hitting the tree.

I was with HD when he nailed a 1.961 60' NA on the stock 20" Perelli's. I don't think he even let any air out of the tires.

He brake stands with t/c off and anywhere from 22-25k or just before the wheels break loose.

I've tried many different ways, t/c on and off, with DR's, 22psi, just off idle and up to 2k.

My best 60' (1.980) was with Goodyear summer street tires at 26psi, a good burnout, t/c on and just off idle.

Sometimes it comes down to the condition of the track.

Careful comparing the two. There's more to the car than just the engine mods. How much did Rod drop off his time just by slapping on the skinnys? In the two you're comparing one had great DA/weather compared to the other and these cars are affected a lot by weather.

So says the guy who saw 20mph headwinds and 87 degrees already Friday.
I'm not asking for a tailwind, just get rid of the headwinds, please.
