Well, since its a new forum and all, I'll go ahead and post a new topic.

I'm going to the track tomorrow. Gotta see if I can match my prior best of 15.7. Things that have changed: No more CAI, just a POP charger, New tires. Kum Hoes instead of my walmart blue light special tires. What do you guys launch at with the 712's? I always revved up to 4k and dumped the clutch with the old tires. Don't know how these will do.. I'll see..


OH YEAH.. Storm.. did you go to the track last weekend like you said you were??

When at I launched at 4k all the other times, I'd get some spin up until redline, then it grabbed. That netted some 2.2x's with cheap tires. I also had VERY bad wheelhop doing that too. I forgot that I added ES motor mounts, so that should get rid of the wheel hop.

The Kumho 712s are AWESOME for straightline traction. With my old Toyo Proxy T1 tires with the turbo my tires would like light up in smoke. With these tires at 7psi I could launch HARD in 1st and keep traction ALL THE WAY TO REDLINE in first, unless I launched way to high and then they lit up in smoke. But a a 3500rpm launch with a TURBO and keeping traction? With those tires and my Quaife differential, who needs slicks!

Here's what a 5,200 rpm clutch drop, on Nitto drag radials @ 15psi, will do for you:



Of course, I did knock down a 1.98 and 1.99 60-foot time two weeks ago


If you wanna' see what the lauch is like, just click on over to my website (link below), and watch the 1/8 mile drag racing video, shot in-car.

Yes and the track sucked. No traction. 2.450 60' foots. Horrible. I ran a 15.5 with a 2.434 60 foot. Absolutely terrible. But it shows you what the car could do with say a 2.2 60'

Well.. nothing spectacular last night. [email protected] was the best time for the night. The track seemed kinda slippery. I'd launch low and the tires would spin, then I'd bog down. Launch high.. spin and spin. My best 60 was a 2.39. It was high 90's low 100's with humidity in the 20%. Nothing great, but I'm not surprised by these times either. Oh well.. just need my boost now.

Toddles and Jacen;

The 'thing' that ran the 12-second 1/8 mile was, alas, a 4-door Toyota Camry, four cylinder.
The very same one that beat me in the final round, winning 3x the money I did.
That's the thing about bracket racing...doesn't matter what you got, as long as you can drive it.
That .536 light of his is pretty standard for this guy: He beat me in the final round with a .532 light.
I'm taking my '97 Pathfinder next time: automatic, consistent.....slow. Perfect bracket car

WhiteSER did you feel a difference with the ES motor mounts. Let me know if you did because I am honestly thinking about getting them. I get real bad wheel hop when I run at the track. Thanks in advance!

Yeah, the ES mounts nearly eliminated the wheel hop. It only happened once, but that was when I launched WAY high. Normal launches it was solid. I say get them.

What was your trap speed on those runs, and what's your "race weight?"

By the way, I thought you had an SE-R? I just noticed that your ClubSi signature reads "SE-R" instead of "SE."

No offense taken. It happens all the time in bracket racing, unfortunately.
I *do* have an even funnier timeslip to post from last Saturday. I'm sure no one will be able to duplicate this:

60-ft: 2.04
1/8 ET: 22.xx seconds
1/8 speed: 17mph

That is what your timeslip looks like when the coil wire pops off at the 100-foot mark and you coast, in disgrace, to the end of the track. Then, you get towed off, thinking you blew an axle or fried the clutch or whatever.
*Then* you get back to your pit, and with everyone and their brother looking at your car to see what is wrong, and your heart sinking by the second, you open the hood and see the little coil wire, one that has NEVER popped off, nooooo, not in 149,000 miles, sitting there dangling, laughing its ass off at you all the while.
That's when you get a big 'ol zip-tie out and secure that wire like the little bitch it is.
NOW come off, little wire....
