    No 12's (yet) But New PB

    Went to the track today and had a good time.

    They had a few timing problems, no 1/8th on one slip no MPH on another.

    The car ran real well but I couldn't get a decent 60 ft time even with the DR's.

    It was also the first time its been WOT since the LT install and tune.

    First Run 11:06am RL
    60ft 2.009 1/8 N/A 13.209 at 106.33mph

    Second Run 11:15 LL
    60 ft 2.058 1/8 8.544 at 85.21mph 1/4 13.183 at 106.35mph

    Third Run 11:29 LL
    60ft 2.055 1/8 8.546 at 85.23mph 1/4 13.175 at 106.96mph

    Fourth Run 11:37 RL
    60ft 2.015 1/8 8.537 at 85.51 mph 1/4 13.161 at 106.33

    Fifth Run 11:43 LL (Best Run)
    60 ft 2.066 1/8 8.534 at 85.57 1/4 13.141 at 107.83

    Sixth Run 12.21pm RL
    60ft 2.013 1/8 8.579 at 84.96 1/4 13.231 MPH N/A

    Too many FWD cars driving right through the water box :x

    A lot of peoples 60ft were off as they were spinning.

    Drop your 60" and you have a 12. Just get some DR's or ET Streets and you should be good.

    I was on DR's by the 4th pass I had them at 18psi.

    The track was prepped badly and the FWD boys were rolling through the water box to the line dragging water everywhere.

    Well a converter would get you there as well. But if your trying for 12's as the car is running I would go to ET Streets. I do see the water all over the place comment. A low 1.9x or a 1.89 would get you a 12 IMO.. Gratz on the new PB!!!!

    Thanks in advance..
    Drag Racing on a sanctioned track.

    60 foot time is a measurement of how good a car launches off the start line.

    DR's are Drag Radials

    ET Streets are Mickey Thompson slicks.

    My 1/4 mile time is 13.14,I would like to go 12.xx.

    Google "Drag Racing" for more info.

    What DR's are you running? I assume you are trying to foot brake it? What RPM before you are rolling the tires?

    Hoosiers 255/50/16.

    I tried launching off idle,brought it up to 1000 RPM,tried 1200RPM.

    I think the 1200 RPM launch was pretty good it netted me my 2.066 60ft 13.141 at 107.83 slip.

    That 60 wasn't my best I got a 2.01 on another run.

    Next time I will do a medium burnout have the tires at 17-18psi and leave at what ever the brakes will hold.

    A friend of mine has the same tires and 3600 stall and gets 1.65 60fts.

    I would be happy with a 1.89-1.95 with the stock converter.

    I have pretty much the same mods as you, and I can't for the life of me get in the 12's. Best time was 13.00 @ 108 (FML) My Nitto 555's hook pretty good so I'm thinking the next step is definitely going to be a stall, probably a 3600. Seems to be the easiest way to get into 12's with just having Full intake and exhaust.

    The best time I was able to cut on Nitto 555r DR's was 1.906 launching at 3K. I'm a M6.

    You should definitely be able to cut one below me with those Hoosiers.

    On stock rubber I netted a 2.06.

    That would do it for sure.

    My 02 SS vert had only headers and an off road Y-pipe, (stock CME catback) and I stuck a little 3400 stall in there.

    I went 12.76 at 107.xx and did that on the stock rubber. Cut a 1.90 60 foot with it driving it easy. A 1.70 60 foot would have been cake walk with sticky tires, probably drop into the 12.40's or 50's easily.

    The funny thing is I got a 2.01 on my 275/40/17 Yoko's last fall and my 60's are the same now.

    I did all the free mods last week(FRA,PP TB,EGR mod,TBBP) so I am hoping its enough to get it there.

    I still need a nice day to do my RLCA's and PHB.

    I guess I have all summer

    I'm in the same boat...13.109 @108MPH.

    That trap MPH is screaming mid-12's

    Wow, how come you can only launch at 1100-1200 rpms? If I remember I was launching my A4 at about 1600-1700 or a little higher.

    I was with 2.73s at the time though, not sure what your gears are.

    My tires want to break loose when I load her up too much.

    What kind of 60 fts are you getting?

    With a 13 flat it could be as simple as running front skinnies or airing the fronts to 40psi to reduce rolling resistance.

    I am going back this weekend.

    Cross your fingers

    My 60's average around 2.0. Can't get much better than that without DR's or a stall, OR both, hehe =)
