Great track conditions tonight. My previous best was a 13.02, so I was hoping I could hit (and be happy with) a 12.999. Well, I got it along with 2 other 12 second passes. I wasn't expecting what would be my best run of the night.
Check it out... Car #200 12.901 @ 108.14 So close to 12.8's
2005 GT 5spd with 18k on it. could go faster than 12.80, but that was my goal for the first modded day at the track. never messed with front tire pressures and still havetn gotten the rears perfect yet. i think it could go 12.70 with some more runs and some more tweaking. read the signature for the mods..
my next mods will be include but are not limited to:
stage3 clutch and flywheel
pro 5.0 shifter
engine torque limiters
hooker longtubes and x pipe
steeda charge motion delete plates
comp cams, springs, retainers
trip to dyno shop for some tunetime (most likely evolution motorsports)
hopefully that list has me in the window of 11.80 to 11.99
then NitrousOxideSystem 125 shot
to get down around 11.00-11.25
2005 GT 5spd - 12.80@108mph - More Mods than girlfriends...
First time out to a track and first time racing...ever. Elevation at 1220' and temp was around 77*. Reaction times weren't great but did have a .555 and .567, not bad for first time. Best ET was 13.6 @ 103.6 which was a hell of a lot better than I expected after hearing how crappy the track is there (black tarmac/flight line taxiway). My average times (15 runs) was about 13.6. Definitely need slicks as I'm burning through 1st and half of second and sucking at the 60'. Best 60' was 2.17. All in all not a bad day.
2006 Gt 5spd Bone stock 60ft-2.142 1/8-9.062 1/4 13.959@ 103.37
Whoa...I ran the '06 for the first time Thursday night and had about identical times. 60ft-2.138 330-5.935 email@example.com MPH. Only have 1/8 mi track close. I didn't even expect to run, but just decided to. Bone stock manual premium GT other than Steeda adj. 3rd link. Stock tire pressures also.
'07 GT Premium Auto - Alloy Gray
Recently I have thought about improving my 60' time while leaving the motor stock. I wanted to focus on traction and leaving harder. I've noticed many after market suspension parts and of course better tires(slicks). I wonder about clutch upgrades though. I think there is too much clutch slip. Of course when I dump the clutch the tires smoke up a storm, but I don't think the RPMs snap back as fast as it could. Maybe the stock clutch should be stiffer even for stock HP.
First, the "excuses"...Full tank of gas (so that I know exactly how much weight is in the car when as a reference if/when i start tuning the car), original tires (wich does not have the best grip!) and about 10 kg extra weight in the trunk (My camera equipment!).
The car is 100% original!
Well enough excuses!
60-foot: 2,080s (This I don't even know if it's good or not, please tell me!)
Speed 1/8 mile: 126,61 km/h (78.67 mph)
Time 1/8 mile: 9,010s
Speed 1/4 mile: 161,24 km/h (100.190 mph)
Time 1/4 mile: 13,959 sek
I never thought that I would get under 14 sec, but well, I did, so I'm satisfied...for now that is...
What track and what were the conditions:
Based on the fact you were 100% stock and had a full tank of gas
plus some additional weight in the car a
13.9 @ 100.1 isn't too bad, especially in the heat of summer.
I'd venture to say too, that your track is not at sea level either, since
