Good job on your new best short time, the ET is all in the 60'. What is your car's setup?

Hahaha, just messin' with you man.


BTW, that was on full interior, pump gas, street tires (not even DRs!), 2.5" exhaust, and a 200k mile motor.


being i ran a 14.6 w/ a 2.3 60foot with the 13c .. so a 2.0 would put me just where you were. and nah i trapped 96mph with the 13c so i made a wee bit more power than you....

and bring that booger out here if ya wanna run my car now ... 14.0@100 running into the 13's afr wise w/ a 2.3 60ft(when it was 100+deg out)... little tuning and a launch or hell just from a roll and it wouldn't be all that close


haha there is a local 13c car w/ IPD turbo cam, 3" full exhaust, NPR IC, both chips from fred and from a 40 roll(him going 40 and me dead stopped and me starting right as he hits my rear bumper) by 65mph i am pulling away from him

Haha, I was gonna ask which car you had. My sig will tell you all about my biggest "mod". 6psi .42/63 turbo, B-cam, 3" exhaust, MSnS. Next week I should be running a lot more boost.

Mike, that last paragraph of yours is priceless.

I was going off your time posted in this competition. Maybe you should post some better slips?

i already pm'd him my 14.0 one and it has yet to be updated ... nevermind the car ran 13.8@100 with a LOT hp than the car has now. its just a matter of waiting for winter to come around as i'm only 2 tenths behind my old time and i'm still working out all of the new mods tuning issues were as before i just got done fixing all of the tuning issues ... and that posted time was @ 14psi with fuel cut everytime i hit 5200rpm .. which is about 3 times

i'll top rennys time for quickest TD04HL time(off the bottle) .. as soon as i can get my **** figured out




this is what i love about drag racing .. brings out competition which is GOOD .. makes people try harder and get pumped up around racing. and to the slip .. notice the 14.3@100 mph w/ a 2.7 60 foot .. SO if one was to drop say 7 tenths off the 60 foot .. that's equal to about 1 full sec if not MORE off the final time ... and this was again only @ 16psi in 100deg weather. also notice on the 14.0 run he had the same 1/8 mile time as me which is showing the good points about the 13c with its quick spool and loads of low end torque .. but again he has a 3 tenth lead on me in the 60 ft are which as most say 1 tenth in the 60 ft is equal to about 1.5 tenths in the 1/4 SO .. he has 3 tenths better than me which means IF i could launch my car as well as him that should put me about 4tenths faster in the 1/4 mile. this is also apparent in the trap speed. where as he is only @ 75mph in the 1/8 i'm @ 80.. and in the 1/4 he is almost a full 8 mph behind me. see i get a kick out of this because there are so many places to win and lose races .. numbers are fun because it is proof that bench racing works

you know more about these cars than i do .. and you know how good and how bad then can run with one or two things just a little off tune wise ... but when they run right ... they run gooooooood

Yeah that will be nice. It's still 75° out right now and it's almost 10:30pm. How long are the tracks open down in AZ? We have until the end of October up here.

Yeah, dropping 7 tenths off your short time should definitely be worth more than a second off your ET. Generally, a tenth in your 60' is worth 1.5 - 2 tenths on the top end. So if you can make you car hook better you should pick up a lot of ET. Seems likes too many people are concerned about their mph. It's really not that important to me since the ET is what wins races.

ET wins drag races, trap speed wins street races .. this is the reason supra's are big street racers ... 12sec slip @ 150mph haha, ET is driver .. mph is car. like the 700+hp porsche guy @ the local track ... 13 sec slip @ 138mph .. he rolls off the line slow and then takes off HARD as he doesn't want to be kicked off for running to fast(its a low 10 sec car)


and in AZ tracks are open ALL year ... EVERY friday there are races ... sans for maybe 10-15 fridays throughout the year when its closed for speical events but then there is another track 1 hour north west of here open ALL year

If by street races you mean racing from a roll, then I agree it's all about mph. When drag racing on the street though, short times become even more important since traction is limited. ET does have a lot to do w/ the driver, but there is also a lot of ET to be found in suspension, tires, pinion angle, etc..

Technically you guys should be moving this talk to the smacktalking thread to keep this thread clean-ish, actually I'll go there now and continue my conversation with Mike...

possibly, though I'd like to be the quickest volvo here. Which i think with the next round of modsi might do pretty well in that respect. . . .
