Default 1/4 Mile - 12.046 @ 114.25MPH (Video)

Went back to the track Friday to (finally) start tuning my spark maps. Each run I bumped the map up 1 degree, ended the night with 5 degrees up over the base MSPnP map, didn't touch anything else other than adjusting the launch control slightly. 110oct, Toyo RA1s @ 20psi, roughly 16-17psi of boost, stock internals, yada yada.

First run - [email protected], 2.0 60ft

Second run [email protected], 2.0 60ft

Third run - Couldn't find 3rd..

Fourth run - [email protected], 1.749 60ft

Fifth run - [email protected], 1.711 60ft

Sixth run - [email protected], 1.763 60ft

I never realize how much I short shift until I watch the videos later. Hopefully with a few more tweaks and better driving I can hit 11.999.. *fingers crossed*

Damn. Nice passes. Looks like there's still something to be had in the launches from the videos, but jesus 1.7 What are you running for rear suspension? If I tried to launch like that I would break ****.

Those launches are definitely testing the limits of a Torsen. Suspension is JIC FLTA2, dampers are set about in the middle I think. It only wheel hops every now and then, but it usually goes hand in hand with a poor launch on my part. No hop on any of those 1.7 runs though.

Holy **** dude, this is very impressive. Have you considered going to a clutch-type rx7 lsd? Should make for better launches and (hopefully) wont break. Plus if you do it before you blow the torsen you can sell it to recoup costs.

Anyways, those times are awesome. Those launches are nasty, what are you launch control settings and how much boost do you make on launch control?

I'm impressed. I'd say there's some talent in the mix...no? And sub 2 second 60fts is amazing on the RA1s with stiff sidewalls.

Looking good, can't believe it's still in one piece
I don't drag and I don't know what your power curve looks like, but maybe it's time to shift to 5th at the end if power is dropping off more than a shift is going to cost you?

5 degrees over in spark. Cool.
With tmes like that you don't need a V8. Build your internals and go for 24psi. LOL

I gotta agree with the torsen sell. The rx7 lsds are selling for <$150 on eBay now.

Yea, I didnt think you could launch a miata successfully like that, I was really waiting for the violent wheel hop.

Very awesome ^_^b

I have been thinking about swapping to something else, but haven't really decided where I want to go with that one. The 7" RX7 swap was appealing, the TII swap looks like a PITA, but then again that new caddy swap seems nice too. If the diff is still alive come winter I may swap it then, but in reality I will probably procrastinate until I break it lol.

Launch control was set at fuel/spark, 0* timing, and 3800RPM, boost is about 6psi of the line.
