1st time at the strip

Just putting up my times at the strip. 2012 auto with 275 Mt street comps, bmr upper and lower control arms with mounts, panhard, eibach springs, koni yellows set back full soft front almost full stiff. 1st pass all traction off next 2 sport then back to all off. Weather was high 80s then last runs was down to high 70s I believe. Left off of idle except on my 5th pass which I screwed up bad to begin with and let the car roll at the start then smoked my tires into 2nd and had to let off. Learned from my screw up so it won't happen again hopefully. My 60 time is slow Isn't it?

You could get a little better 60' out of it but not much with the stock converter.

I'm assuming you're tuned?

Your setup is backwards. You want the front loose and the rear stiff. Try and and watch the 60' drop. Get a tune and a converter and drop a second.

Agreed. The only thing you're adjusting on Konis is rebound and you want to slow the rebound in the back to keep the tire planted and speed it up front to get the weight transfer. So, thus, full stiff rear and full soft front.


....and yeah, the 60 is terrible, especially with a relatively soft tire like the street comps. The converter definitely isn't helping here. You need as much launch rpm as it'll give you and that ain't much with the stock one.

30 second was my buddy in his 370z, his launch control stuck so he hit 3k and didn't go any higher until halfway down the track when it finally let him go past. He ran a 14.2 with missing 4th gear at his fastest. Next time I'll switch the konis around to see if that makes any difference, thanks for letting me know I had it backwards. Next time should I leave off idle like I was or try to Rev it? When I did rev it some I smoked my tires in 2nd and had to let off so if I do that I definitely need more practice being smoother and learning that way

Good catch. Shame on me for missing that.
