Test N' Tune Results

finally went to a Test and Tune day. $35 to race, but there were maybe 30 cars there total, and at most, there was a 2 car deep wait in the staging lanes.

we got 12 runs before getting bored. my buddy's Stage1 Neon SRT4 broke into 13's, with a 13.998@101.294. it was his night(last track day was mine with a 14.0 consistents). i dont think track prep was that great. i always spun if i tried going WOT in 1st, so i had to feather the throttle till 2nd gear. then going into 2nd resulted in lots of spin. 3rd barked every time, compared to last time which i was barely able to spin, so my 60ft's and 1/8mi sucked *** all night

Run 1 - 14.271@100.084 - .186 r/t - 2.318 60ft.

Run 2 - 14.279@100.445 - .243 r/t - 2.309 60ft.

Run 3 - 14.278@100.191 - .124 r/t - 2.273 60ft.

Run 4 - 14.309@99.243 - .239 r/t - 2.246 60ft.

Run 5 - 14.363@99.547 - .177 r/t - 2.269 60ft.

Run 6 - Missed 3rd

Run 7 - 14.421@99.891 - .176 r/t - 2.412 60ft.

Run 8 - 14.351@99.258 - .188 r/t - 2.291 60ft.

Run 9 - 14.303@98.066 - 1.277 r/t - 2.249 60ft - they still had the pro tree from the car before us(full top fueler), and i was second to the line, so as soon as i tripped the 2nd light it turned green. this was also the run where my buddy srt4 got into the 13's. i think its cause it was more like a streetrace.

Run 10 - 14.299@99.336 - .121 r/t - 2.310 60 ft.

Run 11 - Missed 3rd again - would have been a great finish, at the end of 2nd my buddy said his srt4 wasnt catching up as it usually does, then i missed 3rd and he won.

Run 12 - 14.488@98.754 - .147 r/t - 2.354 60ft.


oh well, it was well worth the $35 to see all the real drag cars come out(most were trailered big blocks and what not, the real streetable cars accounted for maybe 10% of the cars there). but next time i go, were bringing awnings or such, cause after a couple runs in a row, its nice to come back into the pits, chill for a bit with some drinks and food, let the cars cool, before going back out.

Re: Test N' Tune Results

Those are still good times for the heat. I want to go again, especially after I get my retune in about a week, but I will hold off until it gets colder again. Then I'll stick some DR's on the old 16" wheels.

Re: Test N' Tune Results

its in the valley, so its pretty much the same altitude wherever youre at.

my 1/8mi is 9.3@77-79mph on every slip that i didnt miss a gear.

im still pointing towards track prep. i can bark 2nd sometimes but have never barked 3rd, and at the track i was just ripping 2nd and would spin for quite some time, and would bark 3rd. oh well, i usually go cause its fun and i like to see all the other cars. i havent done enough to this car to be concerned with timeslips.

yeah our 15$ grudge fest days arent even worth the drive. you *might* get 3 or so runs in, and at least 2 hours between them. theres no ricers saturday night since theyre all out wrapping themselves around telephone poles. do the math. average ricer runs 15 seconds. 2 cars per run. at least 100 of them, plus 25 seconds between runs for prep/staging.

100(cars)/2(2 per run)x40(seconds per run+staging/prep)/60(seconds in a minute) = ~35 minutes.

and thats just the FWD class for under 1.8L, then theres FWD 1.8-2.0L. then AWD/RWD imports. then Stock-Lightly modded Street Domestics, Moderately Modded Street Domestics, then the big block guys, then another lane for Slick users. then Motorcycles. then sometimes theres a few Top Fuelers thatll go to show off.

it was well worth the extra 20 to do almost unlimited runs. there were 2 SRT4 guys just going at it all night back and back and back, no breaks at all, they ran 32 times and left at around 8ish(arrived at 5:30 when we got there). they only left cause they both were on empty.
