you said it right in another thread the other day. Rick has G8's ripping it up from coast to coast, and that seems to be one of the common denominators between us.

Very nice Troy, what are you cam specs ? that trapping speed is awesome. I agree with Yeti, you won't see many G8's running at the track around here, much less now that we don't have a 1/4 mile track to race. Every other Mustang, Mopar, Camaros and my G8 are at Irwindale almost very Thursday, but is only 1/8 mile, half of the fun, but awesome when you're able to measure your car against others similar modded.

By March/April i'm expecting my car to be cammed, so in the meantime, i can only be jealous of you guys setups and track times. Hopefully our 1/4 mile track would be open by then as well.

Have fun, btw, if you want some very good tires for your car, without going through a DR setup, try the Nittos NT05's, the Z06 vette crowd in our local 1/8 mile track swear by them, they can launch, and corner very well according to their conversations.

Awesome, that should put you in the 11's, i have the GTO drag pack as well, GTO rears with Toyo DR's, and GTO spares wheels with the stock donut tires. I've only used the spares once, but didn't like the feeling when i was trying to stop the car at the end of our 1/8 mile track, Ran them at 40 PSI, so perhaps that's why they're feeling loose while breaking, i'll be buying a pair of M&H front runner tires, install them in the GTO spare wheels and call it a day. I want to run in the 7's before i do the cam, mostly cause i don't have the dove now, so i've set to get in the 7's first

Btw, is that FZ8 in the pic ?

I did, but that wasn't the problem, they ran straight and planted, but i felt them skidding when i was trying to slow down, i normally take the first exit past the beams at the end of the 1/8 file run, and normally slam the brakes and turn right, no way i was going to make it with the spares, lol, she was just locking and (unlocking because the ABS) and not slowing down that fast.

I think 40 psi is too much for the track, everybody else with real front runners run them between 28-32psi, i'm just to chicken to go that low on a damn donut tire.

I have plenty of slow down room and shouldn't have to get on the brakes hard. I feel like if I tried to take a turn at any speed they would explode under my fat girls weight LOL

Lol, in that case, you shouldn't have any problems, they would hold up, they hold more weight than a regular street tire, but i think you have to pump them up in order for them to do that. I'm not really sure, i asked several times from the guys who run them in here, and never got an answer on how much PSI is good for them, so i'll just get the real front runners for piece of mind. The wheels themselves won't have any issues.

Here is a view of what i did to make them "Tech" friendly, i didn't know if they were going to allow me to use this combo with all the Temporal usage, Spare only, etc, etc labels and tags in the wheels and tires.

"I did a little bit more grinding today because i was obssesed with the temp only use lettering, and removed those messages from the tires as well as the one that said convenient spare and the T before the 145/70/17 , i need to see if i can smooth out the finish in the rubber, but oh well, it's done, i also put some primer on the wheels first to make sure the temp only use letters were gone (english and french words), left the rest untouched "




Uploaded with ImageShack.us

after this i painted the wheels with primer and black gloss to match the stock color, and also painted the GTO rears as well so i have a matching drag pack , came out pretty good.

Good deal man. We will get up after the holidays and make some runs. In the meantime Me and Rick are working on getting a full 2.5"-4" exhaust installed, I'm thinking I'm highly restricted with hacked stock mid section. Hoping for at least another 10-15 ponies. I hate knowing I have power left on the table...

I hear you! I would love to get a run with temps in the 40-50s. We have a track out here that stays open in the winter, but they don't prep it at all so it is super dangerous. You end up aborting a 1/4 of your runs out of fear of spinning out. You have to roll into it real smooth, and lift just a tad in second when it gets loose. It is what it is though. I just wish they would stop messing around with the mpg measure ment. One week it will read one thing, then the next week it will read 2mph slower lol

Yea some tracks measure MPH different that's for sure.
For example last year when my G8 was just the blower no cam or anything i went to a outlaw 1/8th mile track and trapped 102 in the 1/8th, one week later i went to a 1/4 track where the mph was timed different and trapped 96 in the 1/8th.

MPH all depends on placement of sensors/wiring/Different timing companies.

NHRA tracks are supposed to use the 66 foot measuring rule.

We were using the drag times app that day, and that's the number it was spitting out. But you are right, pulling it up via track and time that day is 15'.

I still want that 50 deg day pass. I'm desperate for an 11s pass. Should see it with the drag radials and front runners; I will also be trying some different launching techniques.

We will find out the next Saturday hopefully!
