It's the internet.

I rode in this car before it was set up for "Kill" and it was capable of breaking into the 12s then with a tire. It hauls the mail pretty good.

So you're hitting 5th in the quarter???

Sounds to me like there is only one way to settle this. How about a meet at an undisclosed location?

Nevermind, i now see you're almost at the top of 5th at the end of the quarter... 4.30 gears kinda suck for this.

Actually it is not. The correct gearing would put you near redline in the gear that is 1:1. He has a 6 speed, so he should be near the top of 5th to get the best ET.

The problem is the fact that his first gear is too low. I would like to see someone with some drag race skills try launching the car in 2nd with a 6 speed. I have a hunch it will work better.

I'd rather drag race with 4th gear being 1:1 than 5th. Shifting takes time.

Launching the car in 2nd will definitely be faster. He may have already done this, though.

I mean, i was dead hooking with 4.10's and a 5 speed with a 195 tire.

I believe that more time spent between gears will lower not only trap speeds but ET by two tenths or so. I have the ability to flatshift, but have been to afraid with the 5 speed and more power. Maybe this is something he can take advantage of.

Yup, well into 5th on the 6 speed with the 4.3 ring and pinion. I have the 3.636 ring and pinion sitting in my shop next to a spare torsen rear end... just need to take them to a gear shop for assembly

It would if my clutch would take it. I currently have a ACT HD with street disk in the car, and it is overwhelmed even with the skinny tires I was running this year... I have a Flyin' Miata stage 2 sitting in my shop that will go in at the same time as the 3.636 ring and pinion. At that point I will not need to launch in 2nd for a good time, and avoiding the 4 to 5 shift where I push too far to the right when amped up will help

Flat shifting is surprisingly very smooth. I have mine set to 5degrees at 5k between shift and only cut spark and it is silky smooth. Very very gentle on the syncros too

Are you saying its gentle on the synchros cause you're not grinding gears? Or do you actually know that somehow?

To avoid this I end up making some inverted retarded claw with my hand. Swift 5-6 shifts all day

He's talking about the 4-5 shift, which does suck donkey *****.

Sure, easy on the syncros if you're not hammering it into the gate. Not so easy on everything else when you dump the clutch in 3rd @ 6000rpm.
