Re: Mark's 1G Winter Projects

Thanks for asking. Results:

First goal achieved - trap speed over 170 MPH. The car ran 170.88MPH @ 9.33, super bad 1.89 60 foot.

I only got 4 passes in all weekend, 2 were aborted due to a poor launch in time trials and to me red lighting in the eliminations (Loosing).

Also, I broke a vibrant IC clamp at the top of third gear, on what would have been my personal best pass to date. I ran 5.7 second 1/8 mile time!

The best news is that the car went on the trailer running ready for the next event! I also figured out the anti lag so it is way better, the clutch is a new learning curve since I changed the engagement height. I learned a lot from my bad launches too.

Re: Mark's 1G Winter Projects

Last weekend didnt go well. I lifted the head on the first pass...due to driver error. I bounced off of the rev limiter in 3rd while watching my boost gauge -fail.

A couple of videos from my archive, including my first 8 second pass.

Good to see you as always Mark, sucks about the head lifting! Get that rev limiter raised now before you forget

Re: Mark's 1G Winter Projects

I scored a set of new 15" volk te37's recently. Present to myself this year! Super lucky to find them new as they are discontinued. I found a dealer that had them in inventory in the US, it took lots of messages to dealers and searching. They are 10lbs per wheel!






I also made a change to a new 90mm throttle body, 3.5" ic piping' and hd vanjen clamps.



I'm excited for the race season! More updates to come.

Re: Mark's 1G Winter Projects

10 lbs is crazy, how wide are they?

3.5" piping is nuts too, do you think 3" is holding you back?

I saw these new style clamps the other day too, they look promising!

Edit: Looks like Kiggly plans on running the linked product in 3.5" next season.

Re: Mark's 1G Winter Projects

Wow, nice score! Had 17" TE37's on my car a while back, I think they were 15#'s though.

I don't know if it'll free up power or not. The reason I did it is the throttle body I'm using has a 3.5" vanjen input. I did a boost leak check yesterday and the system has never been sealed up this well.

The clamps you listed look good too!

The wheels are 8" wide.

I can't be happier how the car has turned out, kind of a blend of show car and drag race machine!

Re: Mark's 1G Winter Projects

In January I started a new project on the talon. Decided to make a tubular rear subframe for the 3000GT rear end. This way I can put that rear end in an ideal location. When I used the OEM subframe I could not get the rear end mounted high enough. I should be able to save approximately 25 pounds. I used a little bit thicker wall chromoly 0.120" for additional strength. I also wanted to use urethane bushings that I had for the factory subframe. I still need to make tabs for the lower control arms. I'm excited that this is all coming together.

Dude you are so rediculous. Your fabrication skills are amazing to say the least. What bender are you using?
