    New personal best in the Firehawk

    With a lid, cat back, tune and 4.11s I ran a 13.485 @ 105.67 on Saturday.

    Still driving on street tires and it was cold out. Weighed in at 3910. I know I can do better. I'm getting a feel for launching and can tell when it feels right or wrong. My RT is down to .3??

    The tune the car has now is set up for LT's and an LS6 intake. !AIR and !EGR. So it's probably not making the best power either.

    Can't wait to Get the LT's, LS6 and a TA in the car. Run it with DR's and see where that time goes. I'm confident it'll get me into the 12's

    I was at Street Wars at E-town and got a chance to line up against my friend and his 98 Cobra with an 03 Cobra motor.... minus the blower. I took him easy despite him having DRs. His best before the engine swap was 13.2

    My goal is to be faster than my buddies right hand drive twin turbo supra. his best is 12.3

    While watching other classes race i told a joke in the grandstand to the Supra owner:

    What's the difference between a 400hp supra and a 1200hp supra?
    Nothing.... they both run 12s

    FYI best 60ft was 2.065 I could feel a 1.9 in there with a better controlled launch. I'm learning how to slip the clutch right..... man is it an art.

    Sounds about right. Nice to have something to compare to and see what the upgrades do for you. Love the firehawks by the way.

    Sounds good man... You ever try droping the rear tire pressure by 5 psi or anything like that

    Nice job Dylan! Basically running the same setup, but with an A4, our Trans Am went 13.395 on street tires.

    Congrats on the new best... keep it up and you'll find your car's sweetspot. Just confused on how a twin turbo supra only runs 12.3s... either he needs a driver mod, or there is something wrong with the car.
