Only got 2 runs in one of which the timing gear messed up, only ran a 12.3 on the other run which I bogged down going to second gear, car felt really good though, 3rd gear just keeps going and going lol.
12.3 is fuckin shit i hate to say this but has to be said ye put a lot of money in the car at this satge and i like to see you hit yr goal like in all fairness sean ran 12.6 with 317bhp 1 wheel drive???? get to the pod the car is too much for irelands drag tracks
Car goes real well, in fairness I'll never run it at 570hp in this country, no point spinning the full length of the track. 12.3 was a great time when I was complety off the powerband a good half second in 2nd gear, that said I need to look into one thing though, the boost controller recorded a peak boost level of 0 yet it recorded all the vacum readings fine, 12.3 might be with no boost lol, 60fts where 0.2sec slower but I have a 2 inch hole in the left slick and a 1 inch hole in the right slick so the tyres have seen their day, seems they don't like dynos. Terminal was only 120mph, also an indicator of how low it was set, I was trapping 130 every run the last day out when I was giving it some stick.
Only wanted to see how it was running to cure any potential problem, not blow it up before I hit the pod. At this stage of the game I'd say its not a case of will something break, more like when will something break so it would need to be for a good reason.
Good stuff mate! Very cool seeing somebody push the boundaries. I hope when you did the gear ratios you tried to eliminate the huge torque hole between 1st and second gear? If not, make sure you're hitting your limiter in 1st. It's absolutely key to getting a good time out of these. I think I have a graph posted around the place to demonstrate why
any pics or vidsof those shakedown passes on this beast?? or spec sheet sounds very interesting also congrats on those power figures now its "hooking" time.. thats where im at the suspension tuning.. what 60ft times are you running?? what psi are your slicks at aswell...
you should also try to use a street tire with a good compound on those dyno passes for one you wont grenade your slicks and two keep in mind the sidewall flex and expansion also dictates some fluctuations on your dyno graph as it flexes it puts more load on the tire vs roller contact patch a street tire with a firmer side wall and less flex would give you a smoother graph a little more consistent for the tune fluctuations aswell.. you know..
