I went racing and didnt break anything!
Monday, September 03, 2007 4:09 PM
Took it to the local 384' bracket racing track and let the car have a lil juice....

best slip:
60': 1.779
330': 5.217
MPH: 73.49
384': 5.718

It went 6 passes on a 75 shot on 94 octane with a stock timing curve and 1-2* of knock retard on a couple passes. Plugs look semi-decent but the AFR's bounce like a mofo in 1st and I couldn't get rid of it even running practically no nitrous. I generally run a tenth or so faster at mission so 1.6 60s yeehaw.... yes, I should be able to go 12s with only a 75shot as I was running nearly 2 tenths faster in the 384 than my buddy with a 12-second Civic.

Now someone buy this thing... it's getting boring.

Too bad you're not gonna man up...

It just seems like such a waste to build such an animal when it looks like you probably won't even run it in the 1330...

Nice times though, I'm only critical because it's a bitchin car and you're a good driver that could take it where it wants to go.

I'm guessing he runs it at the closest track to his house........

Looking good Owen!

Yeah, the 384' track is only 10 miles from my house... to go to the 1/4 mile track means a ferry, 2 hour drive, and a visit to the parents for somewhere to sleep.

$180 for the ferry.
$150 in gas for the truck.
$150-200 in gas for the car.
$100 of nitrous.
$100 of food, drink, etc (gone for at least 2 days)

Total is $780-$830... where a trip the local track is only $200 or so... not a cheap car to run in its current state.

In the past I've made 5-7 or trips to the 1/4 mile every year but with work and travel I've only been able to make one and all I was able to do was melt spark plugs. I'm hoping to get out there but since I'm going back to school this week, we'll have to see how much time I can afford racing... not to mention the fact I wont make the trip without knowing the car can put down enough power to run bottom 12s, high 11s.

Congrats on the times, I'd really like to see this thing run 13's NA. Why are you parting out, gonna sell it?
