    Hopefully more bleeding issues with their system? Were they on pure 93 or some e85 or race mix? I wonder how aggressive their "pump" file will be with timing since no file switching

    It's becoming clearly evident a CPS is needed with a DP set up. I'm a little leery though of recent IAT issues even with people who have them. My set up is being installed as I type this. I was overly expressive to the my friend about it installing everything.

    100mph at the 1/8th, and a 1.5x 60ft. That's a serious pass. Well deserved Loe!

    Mike, great runs. I know this may seem like backwards methodology, but if you can get your 60ft's down more (I know you have been struggling with wheelspin), I think you'll hit close (or surpass) that 120 mph marker due to a better front-half. I'll get you added

    no spare/jack (if those 40lbs even makes a diff?), less fuel as I'm always over fueled due to my range anxieties post-track, revised file with better / consistent shift points, different hardware (HFC, Kevlar belt that I feel stopped some belt slip that contributed to more boost over the long haul, despite likely not making more boost).

    Previously, my car would short-shift the 1-2 around 6,500-6,700 rpm (or in the case of a few of my 11.2 second runs, at 5800 rpm, which IMHO costs me .08-.10 overall so they never represented the best performance), now with the revision, it consistently rings out to at least 7,200 rpm (hence my faster 60ft & 1/8 mile et/trap times) + a few more items on the file.

    Hard to pin point exactly, but it was definitely a combination of items

    Thanks moogas.


    Loe, I had spent some time looking at our slips and a similar thing jumps out at me. I'm not so sure Friday was necessarily just my 60 foot (it was 1.619 and the track prep allowed me to hook) but there is something in the first 1/8th where I am not getting there fast.

    You were at 7.026 in the 1/8 at 99.97mph. Then you go on to pick up 25mph in the back half.

    In my 1/8 I am at 7.351 at 94.6mph. I then go on to pick up over 24mph in the back half. I'm fully .3 tenth behind you in the first 1/8th mile to end up around 5 tenth behind you in the last 1/8th.


    I'm losing time up front. I also do wonder if a set of re71 or similar more extreme performance summers will help me and also maybe getting that first gear to not short shift at 6200rpm? It doesnt seem like IAT management (no more than any of us that all struggle with that) bc I am at least picking up 24mph in the last 1/8th on probably a little less aggressive timing than you. I think sitting in the staging lanes and not being able to hot pass the car or get the IATs down lower than 48c is hurting me compared to you in the first 1/8th but my IATs seem to be rising at a much lower delta than yours so i'm not losing as much in the last 1/18th since we are both ending at similar IATs. I'll work on that 60 foot as well to get in the 1.5x range to but thats tough man. I need better tires and a good track prep day i think.

    Anyways thanks for the advice and it gives me stuff to think about. Feel free to point out anything you can think of I might be doing wrong or need to do to get better.

    Great runs bhvrdr! That is killer ET. I hit 93mph in the 1/8th for I think the 1st time yesterday. I was hoping to better my best MPH of 119 but 15mph headwind had other ideas! I don't know how you guys are getting 94+ mph on 93 tune. What kind be of timing did you see? These cars just keep getting quicker/faster.

    In my experience, short-shifting may not impact my 60ft times (i've landed 1.57 with it short-shifting at 5,700-5,800rpm), but has affected my 330ft and any increment data afterwards as you are basically carrying out 2nd gear low in the RPM band (manifold pressures likely showed lower in 2nd gears too with those short-shifts). Overall, the impact of the short shift has been in the .08-.10 second range, and 1-1.5 mph overall. If you did short-shift, then there is more in your file that your 60ft doesn't allude to IMHO.

    Honestly, I'm not 100% convinced my RE71's made too much of a difference, but the difference is likely in consistency of my 60ft time over the course of the tire life. My old PSS's were great, but then turned slightly slippery for traction when acceleration is needed around the 6/32nd mark. If anything, the RE71r's goes against weight savings as they are 2-3 lbs heavier and at the worse spot in rotational mass to be at

    Previously, my car would short-shift the 1-2 around 6,500-6,700 rpm, now with the revision, it consistently rings out to 7,100 rpm (hence my faster 60ft time).



    Maybe its an S5 thing? I'm not sure if I believe my FL registration weight is correct, maybe S5's are truly lighter?

    Belt - something custom - what were you running gates rpm?

    So - now that you have your +6500 rpm issue worked out, you going to trying going big again? or something else?

    Loe, congrats.

    Also, imagine how fast that car could be on 260GT Plus....

    What is the best way to cool the car quickly between runs? I've never been able to hot lap as there is always a line. Is it better to let the car sit and idle for a while after a pass and then shut it off to cool? That's what I've been doing, but it seems IAT skyrocket once you shut the car off. After a run the SC is actually a little cool to the touch, however once you shut it off even with the hood up, the SC it almost too hot to touch in just a few minutes. If I let the car sit for an hour before next run I generally start it every so often to let the coolant circulate. I think I read where Loe used to let the car idle with ice on the SC?

    Hood up with heater on full blast, leave the car on or rotate it off every so often but leave heater on
    Worked for me

    You can put a bag of ice if you want
