Road race, Auto X, or the Drag Strip

I didn't slam the gears, but there wasn't much slack. You can hear my BOV in the vid to see the shift points. (also the blown struts allow you to see the car lurch when I shift)

Man, that was no launch at all :twisted:
When in doubt - increase boost.

How many runs down the quarter did you do before the run in the video?? Is you clutch on the way out or was is just really hot cause you were slipping quite abit in second gear by the sound of things, thats probably why your 60 footers are all that flash either and thats probably where your lost time is. Smashing the gears abit harder would help ya alot. Just think if you can change .1 of a second quicker each gear... it all adds up to a better time.
A man who shoveled snow for an hour to clear a space for his car during a blizzard in Chicago returned with his vehicle to find a woman had taken the space. Understandably, he shot her.

Your 1/8 is a little high. I ran a 9.7 with only a exhaust.

even so man. all the stuff you have done to the car should more than make up for poor launches and blown struts. i average 15.4@89 in florida heat and humidity

r/t - .719
60' - 2.135
330 - 6.284
1/8 - 9.706
mph - 71.65
1000 - 12.648
1/4 - 15.123
mph - 91.11

this was my best run ever this past april with track temp at like 75 with high humidity. all i have is a gutted CAT, ghettofied 3" exhaust, MBC spiking 15 lbs running 11 constant, and a ACT street kits(ACT plate and OEM disc). that's also with the spare and various other crap that was in the car plus i weigh 300 lbs.

Judging by the cloud of gray smoke coming out the back, you're either running pig rich or nuking your clutch.

That's very slow for the level of modification. What kind of boost were you running?

Lots of fast, loud things.

I have an autozone stock clutch. My spec stage III grenaded itself.

I think it's a decent run... I mean I have a super restrictive exhaust (it is literally crushed next to the x member), and I run super rich on the top end. The g-force ecu is tuned for a T67 with 550cc injectors.

That'll do it. Fix those issues and you'll go a lot faster.

Try your next run with an open dp, and see what that gets you. If you really think you are losing that much power with the exaust problem, this should help. Then we can go from there.

Also on top of that a correct A/F ratio tuning would go far from there! I know André will get it all done right before it's all said and done.
