Default New PB.

Went out with my bros to one of our local tracks. Historically I don't run very fast there but with DAs around -1000ft I said it was worth a shot to test out the new street tires and new tune to data log.

They wouldnt let us run for two hours until the track temps hit 50 degrees.

I did 4 hot lapped passes in 38min. Never shut the car down in between passes.


Tire pressure was at 35psi
60fts were 1.87-1.90 with 285/30-20 Hankook V12s. Amazing considering the sidewall on my tires is like two inches haha

After data logging my new tune I tried to load up my previous Pat G tune that was a MAF only tune as I had ran my previous PB's on that, but I couldn't get it to load with out an error. So I don't know if the car would have gone faster as my newest tune the fuel trims were rich. I honestly didn't want to beat the car up anymore as I new that I just wasn't going to touch anything lower than 12.1 at that track today so I called it quits. I have a track day setup for the road course on the Feb 10th so I need to save my tires.

I was happy with my times as my previous best at that track with the same setup was 12.48@112

In this first vid I was actually the first one of the day to make a pass. I was lined up against a little civic so I gave him a head start. I new I had to light up the tires to warm them up a tad. Probably had the smokiest burnout I've ever down. Hell the tires kept smoking well after I stopped. I though I was going to black out the sun I had a helluva time fighting traction after the 1-2 shift, and then my next shift just got wierd as I spinned a tad and banged the limiter. I just let off at that point...

Next pass was clean. Damn I love how my exhaust sounds.

My gopro is mounted right under the driver tail light. That way It doesn't pick up any wind noise but gets all the sweet exhaust note.

In this pic you can see the camera under my passenger tail light...




Great angle for roll racing too...

We may not make it to fastest color, but we just might get most consistently fast color haha

I just peeped your 1/4 mile time in your sig. That is one heluva stock time. At the track I was at there were two stock auto 5.0s and neither broke 12.95 today. One had drag radials. As a matter of fact I have never scene a stock 5.0 regardless of manual or automatic ever run faster than a 12.9 at any track I have been at. Congrats to you on that one!

My car is a beast from a roll. It is not setup for the 1/4 mile. But if we were doing a roll from 45mph I like my chances

Good runs, sounds good!. I think it runs very good for only a .500 lift cam. I would have never of guessed. It surprised me. The thing about a low-lift cam is it makes good power thru the middle of the rpm so it pulls good at the shifts which is what you need with a heavy car. That is why your et is so good but the mph is a tad lower compared to Troys. Once you get that drag-pack and stall it will be whole new animal....

Your second run was spot on, brilliant! I'm sure not many drivers want to line up against that monster, do you get many takers?

Troy's car is out of this world. I am really happy with where my car stands considering all the things it has going against it. Small cam, big rims, street tires, stock stall, and she moves out very nicely with fully functional dod. Between you and Pat I have had some great help and advise.

No one runs me anymore. The more mods I get, the less takers.

Congrats Yeti, she keeps going faster. I can only wish for a 1/4 mile track around, damn it, wtf is going on in Socal now days, one 1/8 mile track is all we have in like 250 miles range. This weekend was simply awesome temps and humidity wise, but the track is not open until the 17th. dang it.

Great runs Yeti and congrats on the PB. Sounds like traction was in short supply... great air though.

Going down the track was interesting to say the least.

Speaking of benchmarks, I am ready to run em again Todd!

Thanks yeah, I got my PB when Troy got his. It was our first runs of the day and we were racing eachother. I'm happy with it, especially considering that was with TC on with the Goodyear street tires. I want to go back again soon and try to get hopefully a 12.5. What's Morris run with his 5.0 now?

Also, I love the sound of your car, one mean ass ride.

I couldn't hook up well on that day and only got a 12.3 so my best is still a 12.2. I did how-ever trap at 117.

Once I get that stall in I'm hoping to distance myself and from you and your magical mustang aka the pegasus for a long time.
