Default A little ls fun this weekend - daytime VIDS

Well I didn't end up doing all the races I hoped to do this weekend but got a couple fun runs in with some friends. All races on boost, no nitrous- tried using it against the goat but for some reason it didn't want to work. really considering selling the n2o as I just have horrible luck with it.

Anyways, quick 55ish roll to 140 against a '08 g8 gt, has longtubes, full exhaust, vararam, ported stock intake, stock heads, custom spec cam, 3200 converter, gearset/diff out of an m6 2010 camaro(dont remember gear ratio but it was better than his stock set. Made 432whp dynojet. Honked it off and I slowly pulled, ended maybe 1.5 cars ahead, nice and close run.


Second race was a '06 ls2 a4 gto. This car just got finished last week, 404 stroker 11:1, ported ls3 heads, ls3 intake, custom cam, stalled, built auto. He had 1 passenger, I had 3. did a 40ish roll, honked it off and I pull about a half car right away, then the ****ty 2-3 shift (been a loooong time since i've had to do a 2-3 and it shows!). He basically stopped my whole pull and started coming around me during the shift, and by the time I got in gear he was coming around me and I didn't have enough in the car to stop his pull. let off around 120-130 and he was 1.5-2 cars ahead. The auto was really doing work against me lack of driver mod lol.


I got passenger vids of the g8 race and gopro vids of the goat races, gotta wait for my buddies to get the video's up and I'll post some links.



Edit: got vids from the gopro on the gto. This has vids of his and mine races and he also raced the same g8. Dont pay attention to our first race lol.

There's a vid I just haven't got it yet. All my friends are slow at posting vids. I have no clue on the Gto hp numbers. On a dynojet I'd imagine he'd clear 500 with ease. He got tuned on a mustang dyno and couldn't keep his wheels from spinning.

I'm confused on why you had so many people in your car. Doesn't really show what your car is really capable of in that situation. But good runs nonetheless.

That Goat is stout, but without passengers it would be much closer. Looks like he was letting his car down shift itself, or was he manually holding a lower gear?

He let it downshift itself. Don't know why, I think he was nervous as our run was the first time he went wot in it. That's why I yanked his *** until the 2-3. Without the passengers and with a better shifting day I think it'd be closer, but I think he'd edge me out still.

I wish I could have made them all get out lol, but the Gto owner is a good friend so there will be more chances to race. If I can get a race with just the drivers in the car that'd prolly be a ~400 lb swing in my favor.

Holding a gear in an auto definitely makes a difference. From 30 mph, I hold mine in 1st gear at about 5k rpm. It jumps hard as *** like that.

Even if he'd still edge you out without passengers in your car, there's no shame in that loss. He has a lot tied up in that car, and a lot of NA power to contend with.

Yup, I have no shame in the loss. I just wish it was on better terms as far as the condition.

+1..if you want to spin the tires then letting it downshift is great... holding the gear keeps traction and removes the delay.

One other thing, letting the car downshift itself won't go into a low enough gear/high enough RPM every time either. If I hit mine from 30-35 mph, it won't kick down far enough to do what I need it too, even though it is tuned to do so...

Crank it on up to 4500-5k RPM when you hold it. With mine, I have to lift off the throttle for a split second when upshifting to get it to engage the next gear, but its worth it.

on my old auto gt it would have a huge delay when trying to manually shift, so when roll racing i'd usually just nail it on the second honk. then by the third honk the car would be downshifted and just start going.

Still can't get that crazy high starting RPM letting it downshift itself though. Mine won't automatically downshift unless its into a gear putting it no higher than 4k or so. Manually, I can hold it much higher and get a pretty good jump.
