    1.59 60' on street tires.

    [ame]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RLQ83nCjABc[/ame]
    car has 424 to the wheel, 4l60e with 3600 stall. I had to lauch it in 2nd gear because 1st was blowing off the tires. My previous passes were. 11.3 with a 1.64' 11.2 with a 1.62 60' and my first wass was a 11.4 with a 1.7 60'

    no the timers weren't flawed, I normally run 1.50 60's leaving in first with mt tires on.

    This pass the track, and car just happened to work. Tires on this pass were 245/50-16 riken raptor all season normal street tires.

    Yeah, I would not recommend you do what I did. I do have a big cooler, and my car is on the light side with my weight redution witch helps. I did not hot lap it either.

    The reason I left in second was because my sprag was going out and on the 1-2 shit it would pop into nuetral resulting in a mid 12 run after it caught again. Tranny is now fixed.

    Oh I do run john deer hygaurd in my tranny, all ot of drag racers are now doing this. They claim cooler temps by near 40 degrees and it has different additives in it for better clutch grip. My buddies jeep tranny was slipping, did a flush wit hthis stuff and it now shifts firm again, enough to get him by for the time being.

    This may turn into a tranny fluid THIS THAT, but I will only run john deer hygaurd in all my autos. If you don't want to try it don't, but it seems to be working for me.

    It is a 10w vs normal tranny fluid whitch is near 5w. Maybe this is the reason why it cools so much better. Also there is a different smell to it, kinda like brake fluid, that additive may be the one that helps the clutches bit harder.

    Everyday tranny fluid is designed to help with smooth shifts, not firm.

    I would think a thicker weight oil would smooth the shifts more. It's more resistant to motion because it's thicker. Although the blend of friction modifiers used in the hyguard fluid may be more agressive than normal tranny fluid. Another thought would be that the shifts are firmer because the fluid is indeed TOO thick. I doubt this would be the case in a tranny, especially one with any mileage on it, but putting too heavy of a weight of oil in a modern engine that calls for 5w oils can actually cause a poor lubrication condition because the tolerances are SO tight that the oil simply doesn't flow everywhere it should. causing hot spots, increased friction and ultimately early part failures.

    Again I'm not claiming to know everything about trannys but I know that this is true for engines and I DO know that, especially with auto tranny's, the blend of friction modifiers used with the clutches in there is very important.

    I agree on the motor oil. But on the tranny oil, the reason I tried this is because my tranny was starting to go out, slipping in od, now it isn't with the hygaurd, actually I have several passes on this same tranny now after the flush with hyguard. Also no smooth shifts here. It shifts firm and accurate, there are also good parts in the tranny, not stock,. I found a thread on a web site called yellowbullet, it is a forum of drag racers who near all of them have 8 and 9 sec. cars, many do their own work. there was an entire thread on changing to this hyguard fluid, figured I give it a try. It worked for me, and it worked for my buddies jeep whos tranny WAS slipping, On his we didn't even do an entire flush, just drop the pan, and add about a gallon and a half and 2 days later the tranny was holding again.

    I'm not telling anyone to put this stuff in their tranny, but I will say I've had all good results with it so far, and if you compare it to B and M trickshift...it smells the same. only trickshift is $6 a quart... this stuff you can only get it in 5 gallon tub, but its for $70, divide that up and you are at about $3.50 per quart for some stuff that may be the new racing tranny fluid.

    http://yellowbullet.com/forum/showthread.php?t=122500

    ^^^ just read and make of it what you will, but I'm a beleiver after my results.. my 727 in my 440 dodge ram is getting this stuff here soon as well.

    Many guys are mixing hygard with reqular tranny fluid 50/50 and still seeing reduction in temps.

    Why would you know that? A 3600 stalled auto would most likley be faster than your m6.

    Wow, that's awesome. If you ran some 555 r's for a street tire that thing would be insane from a dig. Of course the street isn't the same as the track though.

    this guy said his car has seen 9's and that there was not way a high 10 sec. car could run with it. but then again i only won the last race. first race i would have won, but I accidently clicked nuetral at 70 mph, got back in it and he pulled a car on me.

    1.59 on true streets I would be excited with 1.8's I don't know what I would do with myself with 1.5's.
    Granted I have a lot left to mod.

    Great launch & run on the street tires, with my M6 I had trouble getting 1.5x with DRs unless I abused the clutch.
