Oh, how annoyed and frustrated am I! /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/banghead.gif /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/banghead.gif /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/banghead.gif
12.398 @ 110.08 1.675 6250 launch boost 24 to 19psi. mid 11's AF. WAY early 1-2 shift, spinning.
12.079 @ 111.76 1.573 6250 launch spun through first gear. added 2* of timing, leaned out fuel little
12.067 @ 112.59 1.639 5750 launch. some spin. leaned out fuel, Boost up to 26psi spike settle to 20
12.168 @ 111.81 1.655 5500 launch. still spinning.
12.023 @ 113.02 1.700 5500 launch. spun hard, early 1-2 shift. hammered rest of gear changes out of frustration
12.156 @ 113.09 1.727 5250 launch. WTF! spun. I even tried doing a burnout, but I think I didn't get all the water off.
Let Utah drive the car for a couple runs, he goes:
12.342 @ 111.98 1.719 Utah is a little rusty and lets off in first gear..."who knows" 1-2 lift shift.
12.15X @ 108 1.6xx Utah has the slip. decent 60' and good 1/8 mile. missfiring in 4th gear...suspect we are out of gas
I make one more pass:
12.828 @ 83mph 1.611 I dropped the launch rpm to 5000 and slipped the clutch alot off the line and it came out smooth but kinda weak. started popping in 3rd, so I let out. Definatly out of gas.
So, as you can imagine, Im not happy with a 12.02 when I was really expecting to nail an 11. Wed night BBQ at Island just has absolutely no track prep and I think I was the only car on slicks after 8pm. I might be double cursed as well, with the Phil Beers 12.0 14b curse and jinxing myself with the comment above about that last 25lb from the stock drivers seat.
Seriously, I just couldn't put two and two together tonight. My best ET comes on nearly the worst 60'. Seemed lowering the launch rpm and tire pressure (had the tires at about 14psi on the first few runs and steadly airing down to 10psi on the last runs) wasn't helping enough as the track condition just went away. Overall, I feel like I was chasing my tail the whole time.
