Can you post the whole slip?

I personally shift way too slow (not enough track practice) and am wondering if you missed a shift or something? With my slow shifting, and 1.85 60' time I was running 12.5's at 110 so with that great 60' of yours and 110 mph traps I would expect a 12.4 or 12.3 out of your car.

Later,

Keith

Cool, the slips help a lot.

Your 1/8 mile MPH is way slow for your 1/4 mile trap speed. What RPM are you shifting at? Do you have lots of problems getting it into second gear so you are doing that shift really slow like I have in the past?

You are obviously making good power with that much mph gain in the second half of the track though

Thanks,

Keith

Best I have seen in that speed range is a 12.355 @ 108.60 (not me, someone else who is a much better driver) but it is possible to get low 12's with 110 mph traps and a great 60' time like you are getting.

people with that trap have run quicker. with a really good short time like that I can't say you'll get much quicker maybe a .1 or .2 at the most. your shifting is probably all thats holding you up. You got your launch down so thats good!
I found out, that with a quicker 60' your trap speed will go down but your overall time will be quicker. I wish I could explain why but thats what usually happens.

That's true. I don't know the explanation either.

Head to evolutionm.net for more posts. There's several people running low 11's. TurboTrix Racing, to my knowledge, has the fastest US EVO VIII - they're in the 9's. But it's stripped.

AMS in Chicago is running a full weight, street legal ride in the low 10's. I think 10.37 or so.

the fastest evo in the us is turbotrix. they ran 9.77 with NOS. not street legal.
Al Friedman I think has the second fastest street driven, street legal, no nitrous in the US at [email protected] there is someone out there that ran 10.53 without NOS
curt brown ran a 11.23 on a ported stock turbo, ported exhaust mani, buschur sheetmetal intake and aem ems. The fastest STOCK turbo, stock computer (piggyback acceptable) ran 11.6 i think

The better your ET the less time you have to spend accelerating, so the same car cutting a great 60' time will have less time to build up speed before the final trip beam at the end of the track.... so you end up with a better ET at a slower trap speed.
