bad times at the track

This is a discussion on bad times at the track within the General Help forums, part of the LSx Technical Help Section category; sounds about right with the mods done...

    My car has a 3200 multi-disc converter, 12 bolt w/3.73 gears and 10.5 wide Mickey's ET streets on my stock 16" rims. 60' times are about 1.7...and I launch at about 2k rpm...depending on track prep and breaking loose or not.

    I'm like ntimid8tr: Before the stall and with 555r's the best 60' was 1.9x and best et was 13.01. I so wanted to get a 12 second time slip. But it wasn't to be.

    I went with an adjustable TA cuz I had massive wheel hop problems. I dialed that out by changing the pinion angle.

    3400 stall and I needed better DR's cuz the Nittos would no longer stick. MT ET Street DR's to the rescue!

    See sig for my best times. All times are uncorrected. Corrected for DA it's about .2-.3 seconds faster..

    If your car is lowered Shady and you have the stock TA, your pinion angle is off, which is going to hurt your launch also.

    Torque arm length really doesn't matter just so long as it's not attached to the transmission. The arm is there to keep the rear from rotating...whether it's long or short. Oh and make sure it's adjustable as to dial in the pinion angle.

    I'm sure you'll go for the long one since you feel the need to compensate.

    A converter will do that for ya no problem. It's about what these auto LS1's need to come alive. They are a bit soft for bottom end.

    I did my changes one at a time just to record track times,,,,,tune, headers, converter,,,,in that order.

    (I had to go back and touch up the tune a bit with each change afterwards) But the converter hands down was the most advantageous, and those simple 3 changes dropped my vert into the 12's.
    Started out running 13.70's at 102 bone stock.

    I think your top end sucks.

    if that is the case..there is no torque arm on the market long enough to make you feel secure

    I'm running a BMR Torque Arm that attaches to the stock torque arm location on the tranny. A Torque Arm that attaches to a drive shaft loop might be better, but I cut 1.67s all day long.

    I'm not saying a torque arm that's attached to the trans is a bad torque arm....it's more of a bad design/idea to attach it to the trans. The trans tailshaft has enough to deal with let alone handle the force created by the rear end. Nice 60' times btw.

    Did you list your reaction times too? I didn't see them, but I may have missed them. But those times seem about right.
