Re: Back into the big leagues: Project FRC

Went back to the track this weekend. Terrible weather for drag racing, but still productive.

Density Altitude was 3056.9
82.9 Degree air temp
13.8 mph cross wind
49.4% humidity
62 degree dew point.

Everyone I talked too was down 2-3mph from normal. Still set a personal best, but more to go on it.
1.939 60'
5.431 330'
8.262 1/8
87.33 1/8 mph
10.687 1000'
12.733 1/4
110.25 1/4 mph

Not setting the world on fire, but making progress. I'll upload a video with a graph later. Next step is renting the dyno for a few hours to validate the tune and then getting some drag radials on this beast. I think I can still get this car down to low 12's with tires and tuning.

Next run I got eliminated. Improved the 60' to 1.931 and ran a 12.831 @ 109.91mph. The rest of the day I ran 12.99 two times and 13.2 two times. It is all in the launch with these cars. I did break a 2.0 60' 3 times. (1.995, 1.939, 1.931).

Next time I get to go will be late October. Hoping for cooler weather and stickier tires for a final hurrah of 2017.

Some sticky tires you should be able to get into the low 12s. Street tires shows who can drive a car...... good times. You just barely beat my best time.

Healthy competition for "neighbors". Time for you to go back and best me.

I hope with a better DA and a stickier tire I can crack 12.3 or better. I REALLY want to leave it bolt on until I go 11.xx, and I am stubborn enough to probably just do that.

Launching on street tires is a PITA compared to the AWD grip it and rip it days. I've learned that for my car it likes a burnout, likes about 26psi in the rear, and I need to leave at 3k. A slip with a progressive clutch feed out and throttle feed in to keep the rear wheels rolling and the noise pointed is good.

I need to line up some tuning gigs to pay for a rear tire setup, otherwise I'll be back out there one last crack, if good weather, in October, on these tires.

Re: Back into the big leagues: Project FRC

Lol I might go again this year. Taking the bike on the 7th to rockfalls for a test day. Trying to get that thing ironed out for next year. If all goes good I will take the vette out next time I can. See if I can't beat your time. Would be one hell of a heads up race.......
