    Question The best of bad track times???

    What could be wrong? Daily driving feels like it shifts multiple times in one gear, hesitates, delayed acceleration....
    Track is...
    Right side of track
    r/t .338
    60' 2.222
    330 6.330
    1/8 9.724
    MPH 70.26
    1000 12.834
    1/4 15.442
    MPH 87.23

    Left side
    r/t .413
    60' 2.131
    330 6.279
    1/8 9.719
    MPH 71.99
    1000 12.693
    1/4 15.226
    MPH 88.91

    Left side again
    r/t .240
    60' 2.371
    330 6.582

    tps/speed sensor? why would u run ur car if its running bad on the road?
    it sounds like u need to get the car on a scanner, get a code and see what ure working with, i dont think an SES will throw if any of those sensor are bad. go to a gm garage where they can pull out tranny codes *and know what they mean*... sounds like u need to get it checked out BEFORE you race it again, u dont want to cause yourself more headaches.

    I love it!!!!!!!!! thats usually what I do when a car pisses me off just floor it
    it does sound like a sensor is bad or disconnected just remember the most important thing " If it breaks it needed fixed anyway." good luck

    Make sure it still has the LS1 in it. I've heard rumors of how gangs dedicated to street racing will sneak into garages at night and steal performance engines for their Hondas. This occurs mostly before important race weekends.

    Gettin a whole motor under warranty is insane, I wonder how much they are going to sell the old one for. Or they might have had to send it back to GM for inspection.
