but hell it was fun
Well I took my new "project" car out for the 1st time at the track today.
THe car is .....may seem overkill and slow but it is definetly me as the driver that is slow.
331 Rblock w/ 8.5 je pistons
TW heads fully ported
17" front and rear tires w/ Nitto DR' 275/40/17 on the rears.
rear tire pres -32psi
Driven-clutch slipping (launch kinda awkward), tires were slipping until I got out of second, I think I even got out of the gas before the 1320
Damn thing is scarry to drive. NO front sway bar and full drag coil over set up withsoft springs. Way different than my old 03 cobra. Cobra felt like a Luxury car compared to this beast.
2nd pass (7min after the first).
Rear tire pres- same 32 psi
Driven - launched at 3000-3500 and floored it. Blew tires at 1st and 2nd. I think it went slower also because of how hot the motor was.
3rd pass (45 min break)
Rear tire pres- 22psi
Driven- launched 3000-3500 softer. Car didn't spin tires as bad but still felt like the rear end was still slidding left after 2nd. Shifted great and floored it the whole way.
Only 3 runs for this newbie. Conclusions- TKO600 doesn't shift as good as a T56. Lighter car and big power is hard to control. GOT TO LEARN HOW TO LAUNCH & DRIVE THIS THING.
Car dynoed at 464whp with 15# and 15deg timing supper conservative tune. I actually think this car is running too rich. I was running the car @ 11-13# of boost at the track (Didn't want to screw the motor since I was just learnig to drive this).
On the 3rd pass I went against another notch that had 100p less, supercharged running 8psi, with 3.90 gears, and slicks. He went 12.209 @113.815.
I will update on my next trip to he track
