    Took the terminator to track.. Meh.. (videos inside)

    And I am not happy with the way the car performed. I mean, these are decent times, but I of course expected a little better due to my previous experience with these cars.

    Anyway, other than still slight hesitation while shifting, I have no other excuses. She did not move the way I expected I will give Tim a call see if he could do something else.

    I jinxed my ownself on shifting. I said that I never miss gear anymore now that I set the clutch up to my liking and I missed 4th twice :down:

    Maybe i will run a couple tenths faster next time I go.. I hope..

    3 runs, 1 clean 1/4 run, 3 clean 1/8 mile run

    1st 1/8 mile: 7.50@94mph w/ 1.69 60' ==> missed 4th, hit the brakes, let it go and still ran 12.1@90mph
    2nd 1/8 mile: 7.55@95mph w/ 1.74 60' didn't miss any gear and ran 11.6@120mph
    3rd 1/8 mile: 7.4@96mph w/ 1.71 60' ==> missed 4th, let it go and got on brakes and ran 12.1@89mph~

    I have videos of all 3 runs inside and outside of the car.

    Here is a view from inside the car:








    Here is a video outside of the car:

    What did you think it'd run?

    What does it make to the wheels?

    455 - 478 to the wheels.

    I ran 11.3@122 with the same mods with my previous 03 whic made 455 - 478, so it should run similar. I will try again.

    Probably the air.

    I can see how you missed 4th on the in car runs. Looks like the first two runs you were pulling the shifter towards you, which is very common to do. You end up getting caught in the neutral gate.
    The 3rd run you can clearly see you pulled the shifter straight back.

    4th gear is the gear I hate the most, as I find I really have to concentrate on pulling straight back, or I do the same thing. Especially if the shifter doesn't have much spring tension. I like a ton of spring tension on my shifters, but my wife hates to drive it like that.

    Could be that the computer is pulling timing it will pull timing starting in the 110 charge temp range and the higher you go above 110 even more timing will be pulled. This is also dependent on how your tuner has it tuned to pull timing. Mine is really noticeable but my buddy is not 2 different tuners though. No timing pulled Im at 102mph in the 1/8 when the computer is pulling timing its around 95/96 mph for me. Your second run is really close to what my car does when its pulling a good bit of timing you may want to look at your charge temps.
