    lololol. Well I'll still be looking for 12's next year.

    Got 3 runs tonight (all 3 on video from both angles of the track) Thanks Tony.

    Nothing could really go right tonight. Started off stuck in traffic, got there late. Showed up, bolted the slicks on, laptop was dead.

    Line up, Im so nervous I can't find the linelock button to do my burnout (it's beside the SGS). I missed the water box, hit the SGS, do theeee worst burnout possible, almost overshoot the beams except I SLAM on the brakes and skid to a stop just in time and just in the beams LOL. Take off with SGS still on <<<<rookie move

    run a 13.5

    Next two runs aren't much better. Theyre both 13.4 runs (13.455 and 13.430)

    best and final timeslip was:

    60' ... 1.840
    330... 5.481
    1/8... 8.535
    MPH... 80.32
    1000... 11.188
    1/4... 13.430
    MPH... 100.77

    Now, I wasnt able to log on Hp tuners due to the laptop being dead. But I did notice the first two runs I was shifting early. I had my charger there, so I snuck over to a wall outlet and bumped the shifts up to 6300rpm from 5900rpm (didnt seem to matter)

    I did notice on my last run when I finally looked at my afr Gauge I was running LEAN, the top of second I was 14-15.2 afr which is nuts, most of 3rd I was 13.8

    Not sure why it leaned out on me as opposed to last week when I verified and adjusted the tune. When I saw it lean out I remained in it (probably dumb) but I didn't see any KR on the aeroforce gauge. Now, that is wayyyy too lean, and I'll definetly pick up some time richening that tune back out.

    What baffles me at this point (and is probably related to the above) is when I blew the motor back in 2010 I made 3 passes that day all with problems and having to lift off the throttle atleast once. ALL 3 passes I trapped 85mph in the 1/8th, yet tonight I could only trap 80mph. Not sure where that 5mph loss is coming from yet, but that is huge.

    I blame it on the heavy *** rims

    looks like I'll have to nab those 12's next year

    On the bright side, 13.4 is a new personal best, and I DIDN'T break anything

    Videos will be up as they become available

    no, but I am pretty damn impressed he nailed that right on the Head...

    Im happy and disappointed at the same time. Happy to be back, have made a new personal best, and not broke anything. Disappointed because the car isn't where its at and that this is dejavu for there are always bugs to have to work out.

    With a decent 1.84 short time and only a 100 mph trap speed thats about all its got in it even with a wheel change. Thats hauling ass for a N/A car but its gonna take more to hit the elusive 12's.

    Have you ever dynoed it? It would be interesting to see where the power peak is and if a higher stall converter would put it in the 12's. Plus if you could lock the converter and eliminate slippage on the top end, it would be a win/win situation. I dont recall if HP Tuners can manually lock the V6's TCC very reliably but what about hard wiring it? My old Buick GN would jump 2/10th's and 2 mph with the TCC locked in 2nd and 3rd gear. Huge difference in efficiency.

    1.84 is getting serious but it should go 1.6xxx id think and combined with the average 2/10 TCC benefit, your gonna be darn close to the 12 second zone by managing the power you currently have.

    My hot air 84 GN would do a 1.64 60 ft and ran a [email protected] just to give you an idea where your numbers land.

    Exactly. Improving short times will drastically lower ET's.

    I didn't mean a wheel swap will do it. Just mean he's on his way.
