Made a few passes at the drag strip last night.
Like i said last time i went to the strip, this car is not built for straight line nonsense.
With that being said, it was holding it's own. I went with a few people i know. One being the guy with the cobra on the last page. He couldn't get his mustang into the 13's. It was kinda pathetic IMO.
Anyway, i beat an Audi R8.
And by beat, i mean i had a better ET and Trap speed.
I'm car 123.
That was my FTD. 13 flat @109.
I was reeling in that R8 like he was standing still, it was comical. I just ran out of real estate. Had plenty of gear left to go in 4th too, i raised my fuel cut to 8200. It seemed to benefit me.
I'm sure i could have cracked 12's easily if i did just a couple of many things different. Maybe just removing the jack and spare tire, taking a ****, launching better, shifting better, better tires, cooler temperatures. Ect. My FTD was my last run, i'm sure if i stayed till after the sun went down it would have gotten even better.
Somehow my 5 speed is still alive.
But i don't think i want much more power. I was already taking down pretty much every bolt on muscle car there. I was without a doubt the fastest car that a)has a 4 cylinder b)didn't get pushed back on a trailer at the end of the day and c)drove to work today.
This trip didn't come without bringing any problems though. Now the car won't idle... Well, it idles at like 1600rpm. Overrun is sometimes working. And it's popping a bit during shifts under hardish acceleration...
I didn't do any messing with the tune the entire time, it seemed pretty solid. Hopefully it's just a vacuum line, or something simple. If it's a tune issue i'm going to set fire to this MS.
