Alright heres the scenario. The motor in my car is a stock bottom end, stock cam, unported E7s with GT40 valves and a valve job, 1.7 rockers, Cobra intake, 65mm TB, 75mm MAF, CAI, pulleys, Long tubes, x pipe, dumped spintechs, 3.73s, stock tranny, saleen springs on a stock suspension. Car dynoed a reasonable 258 rwhp 295 rwtq.
On 18" falken street radials its best was a 12.95 @ 106.0 mph. At the last race a few months ago the car was going low 13s but trapping 109 (best of 109.27). This past weekend I borrowed some Drag Radials to see what it would do.
First Pass: 18 psi, spun hard and in 2nd gear. 2.20 60' on the way to a 13.30 @ 107.4.
Second Pass: 18 psi, spun less but again in 2nd gear. 1.95 60' on the way to a 12.93 @ 107.6.
Last Pass: 16 psi, spun slightly less but again in 2nd gear. 1.93 60' on the way to a 12.87 @ 111.5.
Im wondering where that 111.5 came from. The car felt good, but nothing special in the SOTP department. It didnt feel stronger than my 109 mph passes, and even trapped a weaker 1/8th mph. I feel like this was just a fluke and the numbers all say it was. I hate knowing it was probably the timers at the track that messed up. The car weighed 3130 with me in it, no pass or back seat (sold them). 258 rwhp and 3130 do not come out to 111.5 mph any way you cut it. Even the 109 mph amazed me.
Any input, is the car a freak, or is the track in need of new timing equipment
