I went to the track yesterday for the first time on my new setup. On my first run, I ran a 12.2 @ 115mph spinning all the way through first gear. Blew the transmission on my 2nd run. I think I definitely could have pulled off at least an 11.9. Maybe next time.

Relevant Mods:
2.2L 5S-GTE w/ Wiseco 8:3:1 stroker pistons
HKS 264 cams
Greddy TD06 20G @ 20psi
E85 ethanol fuel

great times but you guys need more practice launching. very slow lights and the launch didn't seem hard enough (hard to tell from vid, could be wrong). sorry about the trans though vip. i have a 165 trans you can have mabye...

they were being inconsistent with the lights so i didnt want to sit there for 20 secs 2 stepping my alltrac. the turbo doesnt like that. it was also a pro 400 tree that doesnt drop lights one at a time. it drops all of them at once then green. both of us were on street tires and spinning through first gear. if i had more time i would have tried to get tire pressures right not to spin. overall i was disappointed with my car. i was expecting mid 12 times at least. ill have cams next time i run though i hope.

Like bugs said, I didn't want to sit there with the 2step at 6500 rpms for 10 seconds waiting for the lights. The reaction time doesn't factor into the 1/4 mile time, so I'm not worried about it. I wasn't bracket racing.

I have my 2-step set at 6500rpms. It builds 16psi of boost. I smoke all four tires on the launch. I would have let out more pressure from the tires or messed with the 2step settings if my transmission wouldn't have blown.

Not sure.. I think I bent a shift fork. I haven't touched the car since I got back.
