8's baby!

Went to test and tune Friday night and ran a few times.

First was a disgusting 9.42.
Second was a 9.04.
And the third was a 8.85!!

Finaly got the 8 sec 1/8 mile, and well within.

I had to just about fire up my tires and was able to hold place at a little over 2k power braking for the launch. The 60 ft was still about 2.20 and the top speed was 83.35.

Woot!

Nice, I watched some races tonight, couldn't talk myself into hitting the track though, it was way too unorganized tonight.

Re: 8's baby!

I also know you had a good 60ft for an auto, still can do a bit better but thats not bad. If you have some 15 inch rims you can slap some skinnys on the front and some 235s in a good sticky tire out back and you will do a bit better~ they dont weigh as much.

If this is Huntsville...you need to go out on a Saturday night and run after the big boys. Unless they are running, they don't do **** for track prep. The difference between the two is huge. In my car, I can spin the tires off the line at 2500 rpm. With the track prepped for the big boys...I could hold a 5000 rpm launch on Mickey T's drag radials and never even hear a chirp out of the tires.

Re: 8's baby!

You're running right up there with me, now. I ran a 2.0196 and a 2.0838 in the 60' last time we went out there. My 1/8th miles were 8.69@83.69 and 8.79@83.61. I'll have drag radials on the back, next time we're out there...but it would make an interesting ME showdown.

Thanks.

The 60 ft wont get lower without a stall and tires (exact 60 was 2.17) and no there isn't a 1/4 track close by. If I'm not mistaken, the closest is in Nashville...

Press the brake with my left foot. Torque it up a little bit with my right. When it's time to go, let off the brake and ease the gas to the floor.

Re: 8's baby!

make sure the track is preped good to, that will help. They generally do a crappy job unless they are having some sort of race or the really really fast guys are running~

Durp! :p

I knew that part, you must have a higher stall than I do. I only go to about 1750 with the occassional 2000.

When I say a little bit, I mean a little bit. About 1000-1200rpm. Any more than that and I just spin. I'm hoping for 1.8s with the new tires.

Re: 8's baby!

Wow, it must be the crazy LS1 torque.

On the easing into the gas, I've wondered about that sometimes, because sometimes it seeems like I accelerate more quickly and smoothly if I ease into it rather than just floor it. There is a fine line but if you find it, it seems like that's better...has anyone ever proven if that "magic" point is really faster?
