Track time

Finally went to the track with my car. It's been 11 years since i've actually raced at the track. I was only able to make one full pass. The other 4 passes, the trans wouldn't shift from 2nd to 3rd. Hopefully we get the issues figured out pretty soon. My one good run was a decent pass. It was 85 out and the track was completely in the sun. My last run of the night I cut a 1.60 60 ft but had to lift and went 13.32 at 82 mph coasting the last 300 feet.

12.17 at 109 with a 1.67 60 ft time.

Re: Track time

Ran a new best today. Went 12.04, then 12.03. Had some issues after that. A few runs later I went 12.01 at 110 mph. The 80 degree heat didn't help, nothing you can do about it though.

Before long you will be in the 11's easily.

Re: Track time

I should be there the next time i'm out. Still trying to get the tune dialed in. The car is shifting at 5400 from 1-2 instead of 6300. My air intake is choking down the motor, and the torque converter is holding me back. I could probably pick up .2 just buy switching to a new converter.

Re: Track time

New best time last night. Finally had a little better air. Everything else is still the same including the tune.

11.96 at 110 mph. Also ran a 12.03 and 11.98 the next two passes.
