2004 440a Roush Stage 3. First time ive ever been on a strip. I had lots of fun, and didn't do TOO bad, i spun way way WAY too much...need to control the beast :P Any tips are much appreciated. Im thinking with a tune, and if i hook up good, i can squeeze a high 12 out... i know .5 seconds is a lot to milk... but it should be doable in my opinion...Oh and feel free to make fun of me for forgetting to turn traction control off
Even with the awful spinning ran
60' ... 2.131
1/8 ... 8.839 @ 84.44
1/4 ... 13.517 @ 105.11
Heres a video as well.. Enjoy- For the record, that was a 2013 Camaro in the right lane. SHE ran a firstname.lastname@example.org
Vehicle: 2001 grand prix gtp - had to sell the slow stang
Location: alberta, canada
.096 reaction ? First time on a strip? Wow, My first run I think I had a 1.2 REaction time and ran over my cooler accidentally..lol. Doing well. Mr Roush sometimes goes to Bradenton and if you ask nice, he'll autograph your airbag cover. Roush products only.
As far as performance....two words.....drag radials
PS. if you are just running test and tune, leave your traction control on. If you spin the run is basically over anyways and if you hit some oil or something it could save you and your car. When actually racing, traction control is off. Just a bit of advice. But keep your a/c off at all times, even in the staging lanes. It drops water on the track.
um, it's red.....hey I just got it, gimme a chance
Thatd be awesome, mine is already autographed, however, its fading. As far as my reaction time, my first run was a .470 or something like that...I guess im a quick learner...and i blame video games...I can't complain TOO much for what i was on...i was on continental extreme contact dws tires. 295's in the rear.
Not bad... I pulled this off a few years ago... the RT was great...the time itself was HORRIBLE..(iirc this was the same day I went 12.8 @ 110 on a 2.060ft... I messed this run up bad just after the launch) If only I could get an RT like that on a great slip. haha
Congrats on a solid first outing. Get some drag radials and turn that 2.1 sixty into a 1.7! That'll put you in the 12's no problem.
