Friday Night Drag Racing Report

GOPR0025  Started with a hot day.    Initial runs were high tire pressure and spun a little.  As the clutch broke in and I kept lowering the tire pressure the 60ft came down nice to 1.70s on .5bar launching.   The mid track was quite poor.  Found a APC hose a little crimped and fixed some of it.  Still needs some work on the power curve.  Maybe with an expensive gearbox it would be plenty fast but again that not the point here to throw $$ at it.      BTW the shift light is 8750 in 1st and 8100 from there.

The Video ride along from the GOpro tells the rest of the story. GOPRO VIDEO

Obviously not running the midnight races tonight so have to tear it apart next week.   I am getting some miles in it this year.  Closing in on a dozen passes or so on the same axles!

    Is the gearing really that bad that you cant keep the 6262 spooled? I’ve never seen a car with that turbo die off so hard between gears!

    Try to use flatshift, then you get rid of the lag when shifting. I dont know wich kind of EMS you are using but if you have it use it.
    If not maybe a 50 shot of nitrous would be good after each gear

      We have flat shift with the Nira but this is a case of mismatched turbine A/R
