PostSubject: I went faster!   June 6th 2013, 11:50 pm

I ran a new best 1/4 of 12.352 @ 110.36, 1.849 60ft




Then 30 min later I ran a 12.133 @ 111.42, 1.762 60ft cheers

The track was empty, maybe 20 cars, but there were some quick ones. A GTR that was the smoothest 9.8 I've ever seen, a ZR1 that had major traction issues, but was running 14x mph, a fucking eclipse that broke and ran a 9.6 @ 100 mph! It was a good time.

I'm going to do a "stripped down" towards the end of the season as try to get everything I can. Right now I'm still trying to learn how to race consistantly. I'm still too anxious throughout the burnout/staging process. I habitually neglected to hit the record button on the data viewer, and most times forget to turn traction control off, but I'm making progress. I did have the bottom half of the back seats out, as it lets the seats fold forward farther to get my tires and equipment in easier.

Great numbers!

Does turning off traction control make a difference?? I can't remember if I turned my off or not when I was at GLD.

Hmmmmm

Nice times for sure. I'd be tempted to use a small shot to nab an 11 at the times your at. Lol.

Nice, Bill. I used to take out my interior at the track. Pass. seat and entire rear seats. You can pick up a good .1 - .15 by doing that. It's normal to forget or rush things at first. Soon you will just have a routine and go through a check list.

I'm tempted to put a kenne bell on it and try to nab an 11!

My lowest time was the last run of the night, kind of like a birdie on the 18th hole, really makes you want to go back.

for some reason, I seem to launch better with it turned off. Sometimes if I let off the throttle too quickly after my burnout the engine dies, then after I restart I always forget to turn off the traction control again.

Tim said he could fix it, but it doesn't bother me enough to take it all the way out there. It dies every once in a while when I go from reverse to drive too. Only happens maybe once a month.
