Rygen's 1/4 Track Results 4.2.2006

Well, it was a long day today, and I finally got the car to 1/4 track! The experience was interesting vs. what I am used to at SumerDuck (1/8 track). For the first time, I actually got a real tech inspection; they even checked the bottle for a blow down valve. LOL.

As usual I had a blast, and I learned a lot today. I was surrounded by mopars, cobras and professional drag cars. Everyone around me was ripping off 9’s up to 13’s. A lot of 13’s actually.

So some Chevy owners with trailers pulled up next to me and showed me the ropes of this track. They were very helpful. So TNT opens and off to the staging lanes. Details as follows:

1st Run

• RT: .449
• 60: 2.138
• 330: 5.835
• 1/8: 8.954
• MPH: 77.89
• 1000: 11.680
• 1/4: 14.117
• MPH: 87.52

On this first run, I made the classic newbie mistake! I thought I crossed the 1/4 mile marker when I really didn’t and let my foot off the gas!!!! Doh!!!!!! On this run I went up against a Chevy Jimmy on slicks. Interesting. He ran a 15.8.

The track was packed, and by the time I got to my 2nd run, they started with staging odd and even cars via a schedule. What a pain but fair is fair. So this time, I was much more prepared:

2nd Run

• RT: -.240
• 60: 2.039
• 330: 5.735
• 1/8: 8.866
• MPH: 77.43
• 1000: 11.611
• 1/4: 13.931
• MPH: 96.84

On this run, I was still getting used to the timing. I ran against a Chevy C10 truck I think, it was a dedicated track car. He ran a 12.086. My reaction time was off as I was a bit jumpy. But I did break into the 13’s!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And it is an improvement over my 1/8 time of 8.9, I got it down to 8.8! So I am very stoked, finally, a 13 second six!!!

Ok, so with the track being packed, and running on a schedule, I had to wait over 40 minutes just to stage. And the fact that I had to be home for the wife so she can go somewhere, I had to call it quits on my 3rd run! But it was my best run today!

3rd Run

• RT: .146
• 60: 2.064
• 330: 5.756
• 1/8: 8.878
• MPH: 77.79
• 1000: 11.601
• 1/4: 13.919
• MPH: 97.08

So I have finally joined the ranks of the 13 second 2005 V6’s. I am pumped. I also learned a bit today about my car, and what I need to do to get to the mid 13’s. First off I could tell my shift firmness was way tooo tooo soft. The car wasn’t jerking forward on shifts like it does on my street tune. That right there should be good for two 10’s, perhaps more. Scrming….can you chime in on this one? I’m gonna ask Excessive what they can do for me on my track tune on this one.

The second, I did this on GT take off stock pnero tires. I really need new tires!

Finally, there was another 2005 there, a black GT. The only other 05 there today! He was really cool, he was running upgraded brakes, MAC axle back mufflers, CAI, and a cool roush hood! It was a beautiful car. His times are as follows:

• 13.96
• 14.08

So that made me feel great, that I can hang with my 2005 GT brother. I wish I could have squared off against some rice. I was up against an Eclipse on my last run, but he jerked on the line then sat still while I took off. He had a .428 reaction time, but never finished the race. There were some low 12 and high 11 second supras and evo’s there. Definitely dangerous imports there!!!!!

My blood is still pumping from the adrenalin rush of racing and I can’t wait to go back. Before I do I will give Excessive a call on my shift pressure, and see what I can do about some better tires.

Of course, I will scan/post my slips tomorrow from work.

I didn’t get any cool pics of my car or vids as I went solo, but I got some other pics. Enjoy.

Welcome to the 13 second club!! :action-smiley-035:

Those are some very nice 60's on street tires!!!

Yes, you definitely need to get the shifts firmed up! Not only will it shave time off your ET it will make it easier on your tranny... the more HP you have the firmer the shifts need to be! Otherwise you end up with to much slip and burn up your bands...

Firming the shifts up could easily have .2 off... perhaps .3...

Great job!!!
