Default Greddy timeslip

Temperature was 62 degrees wth 70% humidity

Ran a 14.4 @ 98mph with a 2.15 60'. I couldn't quite get the launch right. I was either launching way too high and burning rubber or slightly bogging off the line. I found the best way was to rev to about 4000 and slip the clutch.

That said, my clutch did not like the experience. Seeing as it is probably an OEM clutch with god knows how many miles on it, this was inevitable.

My boost was fluctuating all over the place. I was running about 9 psi at some points and almost 13 at the top of 3rd. I think my wastegate needs a helper spring. :shrug:

well, i also found out that was with only ~140 hp. I'm at ~190 now, and i have a good clutch. I'll post a hopefully much lower time in a few weeks.
