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.
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'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.
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.
