After losing a lot of HP from the the 9.5" and the 4L80 I was curious to see where we'd end up on the dyno. Owen hooked up the direct port (275 shot), and we ended up at 885 RWHP, and 814 RWTQ (even after spinning). I wasn't really looking for a dyno number, but that's pretty strong to me.

I was very excited to see how that power would translate on the track, so I couldn't wait for TCN2012 this past weekend. This was my first time on slicks, and with the extra power I was hoping for low 10s. Unfortunately we had some sort of electrical problem, that turned out to be a loose ground somewhere (Owen found it this morning). I did manage to get it started, but only had time to make one qualifying pass. I didn't have time to fill my bottle, so I was just going to make a blower run. It pulled crazy hard on the slicks, but about half way down I saw some white smoke coming from the hood and let out. I was playing it safe, but everything was fine. It was just a couple of drops of oil that had dripped from the valve cover breather. If my new hood didn't have the vents I probably wouldn't have even noticed it. Since I let out the time was obviously ridiculously low. I also found out the 16s were rubbing the brake calibers at launch, so I decided to call it a day. The weather was perfect, so I was a little disappointed, but things happen in racing.

I grabbed my camera and took pics the rest of the afternoon. I'll post a couple in here soon, and a lot of them on the TCN2012 thread.

I feel like I've been neglecting all my C5 friends, but the prodigal has returned.


So? ..... the pics.....

Owen was tweaking my tune last night for racing this weekend. He didn't get to heat up my nitrous bottle, but it still pulled 952lbs of torque!

Since this weekend will probably be one of the last good opportunities for drag racing this year, we're going to head up to Baytown this Saturday. Owen's gonna make a pass to feel her out, and see what kind of time he can get. Then I'll get in and go slower.

Hoping for some good times.

Went out to the NMCA races yesterday, and it was a blast! There were some crazy fast cars, and the track prep was amazing. None of us could really go to the races today, but since it was such be a perfect day we figured we'd just run qualifying passes.

I asked Owen to make a pass to test the new direct port, and really see what the car was capable of. We missed the 11:00am qualifying round, so we had to wait until 2:30pm. Unfortunately the race was running way behind, so we didn't get our opportunity until almost 5:00pm.

It was really interesting watching my car, because I'm usually the one driving it. The car launched hard out of the hole, and just pulled all the way down the track. Owen killed it with a 1.5 60 ft, and ended at a 9.84 @ 144!

I'm looking forward to getting behind the wheel and seeing what kind of number I can up. At least I have an awesome time to shoot for.

Here are some pics and the slip.

Thanks bro. I forgot to mention that we scaled the car at the track, and it's 4200 lbs without anyone in it!
