That sounds good - I'll try that.

I'm also starting to feel like my 20x10 wheels out back are a limiting factor. I wonder if running my stock 18's would help any?...even if their grip is less and they are more narrow @ 245 compared to the 285 I currently have...

those 20x10s are going to be HEAVY! Could very well be better off with the 18s.

Then when you factor in Island's slower times you can take off about .2 so it was about two 13.4 runs but the launches kept me from "officially" getting those times. The numbers dont lie.

But like I said Ill post them up soon and let ya'll yell at me and tell me Im wrong some more LOLOL

YEP, NEVER that EASY.

If I was to use the darkness logic, which I have the last few times out, but then the track says otherwise.

My thinking was the Trifecta tune (cam phase) worth 13 hp at the wheels along with the ported throttle body another few hp, would have produced at least another .15 - .20 Then factor in the drag radials would be another at least .10. So in my mind I was thinking I could see a .25 - .30 off my best of 13.783. This in theory would get me down to a 13.483 to a 13.52 range.

GUESS WHAT..........didn't happen. Haven't been back into the 13's yet.

Track and weather dictate much of this theory.

Maybe next time?

See? 13.4 at 102. I bet you had a low 60'. 101-104 trap speeds are mid to low 13 second cars. The only reason you dont run a mid 13 is because of a bad 60'.

But you can't really compare anything off my timeslips... 1000 pounds heavier, incredibly NON-Aerodynamic and twin turbos.

Wind just kills me on the big end... Look at my 1/8th ET on this slip and then compare 1/4 stats to the previous slip...




The EASIEST and BEST thing is to relax and just go out and RUN your car at the track and stop sweating all the theoretical numbers!

Exactly, unless you want the theoretical "ricer-math" crown.
My fastest time had one of my slowest mph at the line of the night(rev-limiter or shift to fourth each run).

Let me see, since I did a 13.74, I replaced the Injen with a Vararam. That's worth .3, it says so on their site. .........................
Also added the pulley, VMaxx TB and a canned tune. That should be worth a tenth or two.

Look out scrming.........

Ok... so doing some ricer math... Looking at my best time slip:



it took me 6.939 seconds to go from the 60' to the 1/8th.

But looking at your best run it took you 7.142. Difference between us .203

From the 1/8th to the 1/4 it took me 4.863

It took you 4.906 seconds for the 2nd half... Difference between us .043.

So yes, you made up some ground... but even with a good launch and better 60', I don't see a low 13... Perfect run puts you in the upper 13s... maybe mid-13s...
