Let me tell you about the track first ... The VHT sprayer didn't work , so no track prep ... Fog was rolling in and the car and track were getting dew on them ... Now as for me last 4 gear car I raced was 30 years ago so I was a bit rusty .. Didn't help that the car is brand new to me and I need a little more time to get the shifting down pat ... The car 2015 GT 6 speed ( no mods ) ..
All 4 passes I had to leave at 2000 and feather the clutch out and slowly feed power ..First pass I shifted for 2 right to 5th lol
Second pass same thing , right from 2 to 5th gear ..
Third pass same thing ..
Last pass they were going to call it a night because of the water on the track .. But I got one more pass in before they shut down for the night .. Track opened a 6:00 and closed at 7:00 ..
Last pass I did manage to find 3 gear .. I still had to leave very slow but it still was my best pass of the night ..
60 foot 2.25
1/8 mile ET and MPH 8.90 @ 85.48 ..
I know now the car has much much more in it , I just need to get it to hook and make sure I find 3 gear
And I did find the rev limiter in first gear ..I'm sure that didn't help my ETs bumping into the rev limiter ..
All in all I don't feel to bad about the numbers with the problems I was having .. Next time out I hope to have a good track prep and some M/T Drag radials on the car .. I did order that rear trans mount fix for the shifter problem that I have been reading about .. After feeling the power the car is making it should run low 8s in the 1/8 mile and that should put e in the high 12s ..
