Went to T&T tonight...only G8 there that I saw. Did see a new CTS-V...wanted to steal his wheels. Went with a few folks from here in Laramie...one with a '67 Firebird (also has a 2010 Camaro with 616whp, but that stayed home), one with a stock 2010 Camaro SS, and one with a JYD Fox body.
First run sucked...hot off the road, street tires spun bad...seriously, it was the first time in my life I literally did not move with the tires spinning without having a line lock. Trapped 101.x once it hooked (in second, short shifted).
Then I changed tires (and put the bottle in), hit 12.855 @ 115.17 with a 2.316 60ft and a 4185lb race weight including me.
By the end of the night, the Fox hit 11.38 @ 112ish, Camaro best was 14.2ish, and the Firebird hit 12.86 @ 115.
For me, every run was better than the one before, ending with an almost two hour break to cool and spectate before my last run at 8:19pm:
8.196 1/8th ET
92.21 1/8th MPH
12.464 1/4 ET
116.85 1/4 MPH
According to DragTimes (and using the correct 69º as the temp), DA for that run was 7803, and the middle correction factor for extensively modified engines brings the time to 11.491 @ 126.13...NHRA correction numbers for Bandi bring it to 11.562 @ 125.883. Either way, I am satisfied for now.
Next up, I need to get the more-dialed-in tune from Kirk and try again. And I need to get my converter installed, as the horrible 60ft times are due to not hitting nitrous until 3000 RPM (I will not go lower), and the converter only flashing to 1600. Having to go a full car length or more before getting into the spray (or even anywhere near the cam's power-band) hurts. If I can get the 60ft down to a low 1.8, high 1.7, I am sure I can crack 11's at altitude. If not, I got bigger pills
. Then comes cam and shooting for 10's (eventually).
