    Not bad for stock power and minor fidling out back!!! Itll have to stay this way for a bit but when some mod money frees up Ide like to give it a little more motorvation down the track. Im killing much faster cars out of the hole and barely getting caught at the stripe. Would like to kill em on both ends! Im having fun tho thats for sure and am already looking forward to next week.

    Ah I see what your saying. I can try it next time out if I think about it! Im launching the same as I did on the 2015 GT and after looking at the runs I datalogged the last time I took it out I realized Im sitting at 5K but rpms spiked to close to 6500 rpm before the rpm dropped drastically (clutch engaging). Im sure Im doing what your saying without really thinking about it, just in the timing of it all. When I get to the point of getting a tuner for the car Ill datalog and see what is actually going on.

    Nope, in fact it was fresh on my mind on the twisty backroads leading to the track. With 50psi in the front tires and the rear bars in the middle hole...it was...interesting. BUT I got used to it and on the way home with the fronts down to normal pressure it wasnt bad enough to cause any unwanted issues. The gear whine is obnoxiously loud so thats literally my only complaint now. If we take the car out to cruise backroads or do a road trip any time soon Ill likely put the stock lowers back in and itll be just fine and would take maybe an hour to do tops. For DD status its fine and the gear whine is only from 60-80mph so around town its not noticeable. As for a WOT dump, Im pretty danged close at 5K as 6200ish is limiter. Ill bump it up a little at a time next time out and see if it helps or hurts...or breaks LOL Matt

    Thanks guys! Felt GREAT! Car hasnt felt this sorted off the line since I started running it and I was extremely glad to see it not only reflected on the time slip but consistently as well! If it keeps up over the next couple weeks then Ill start looking at minor bolt-ons and see if I can whittle away at the ET's! Matt

    FINALLY some results! The cooler air and better DA (roughly 2295 according to airdensityonline at the time) brought a TON of people so by the time I made it thru the traffic at the gates and got the car set up I was at the back of a very long line in the lanes and had missed out on the first round of TNT runs. In the end I got three runs before I was eliminated and packed up to head home. Run 1: 7.50 at 93.75 with a 1.63 60ft. NEW PB (ever)! Tires were at 15psi cold, about 16.5 after the run, launched at 5K and it HOOKED. Run 2: 7.56 at 92.95 with a 1.67 60ft. Dropped the tires back down to about 15.5psi and launched between 4700-5000 and it spun out of the hole. Sun was in my eyes and I couldnt see the tach so I hit limiter on 2-3 shift and got beat by a heads cam auto 5th gen ZL1 that trapped 99 mph by .0522. Run 3: 7.59 at 93.35 with a 1.65 60ft. Tires at 15psi, launched at 5K again and it bogged ever so slightly. I would have liked to get a couple more runs but all 3 runs were in the 1.6x 60 and 7.5x range so Im not complaining at all! I checked the tires after and neither one moved even in the slightest! Between that and dropping the lowers to the middle hole, Im where I want to be on the launch FINALLY!!!! Matt

    You will still have plenty of time to hotlap it during the slower (attendance wise) hotter nights and have enough seat time to be able to click off a hero pass when the air gets cooler and the DA gets lower! Oh wait...its an auto duh. Seat time wont be as helpful as a nice set of sticky tires! Matt

    No its stock height. It just squats so danged hard that I was hoping that maybe adjusting the rear arm angle would help. If not, I can move them back up and go back to dialing in my launch to get it consistent and then have fun from there. Matt

    Lowers are now in the middle hole and ready to go. On the test drive it felt like it had more forward bite for sure and adversely handles like complete ass in the turns as to be expected. If this works I'll keep it this way till the season is over OR I decide to take it to the Dragon or Blue ridge and I'll switch it back. Was really quick to do. Hopefully the weather holds out for Tues and it's a dry, slightly cooler evening! Matt
