Default So my goal for this season was 11.999.. *Video*

And I hit it! Like, exactly haha. What are the odds?

11.999 @ 112.05 MPH, 1.785 60ft, and I missed 5th gear around 1000ft...



Unfortunately that may have been my last run for the season, the track closed right after that run and I am not sure if I can make it back before the track closes up for the winter. I really think that would have been a 11.8 run if I had stuck 5th but I am still damn happy that I hit 11.9, it was my only goal for this season.

Needless to say, I have pretty much abandoned the LSX swap plan in favor of a built BP for next season.

Have you done anything more with the car?

Congrats on the time. That's amazing. You just made hero for the day status.

Fanfuckingtastical. Congrats on 11's man, must be nice. Can you post your VE table and timing table? I'd like to see both as I'll be running a turbo similar to yours.

For some reason I didn't take any logs from that day.. I'll post up my tables when I get home.

Shooting for low 11s next year, but I think i'll secretly be shooting for 10.9 haha.

Congrats man.
Was it red? I know Racing Concepts LS1 Miata was on Pinks all out but I think it was running 11.8s at the time. I know it has nitrous now.

So I have to get door bars next year if I want to go past 11.5. Thats pretty weak.

Are you running a 99 head? If not, would you see a big difference swapping one in?

I'm just gonna throw this out there...
The FM gearing calculator shows that with the factory ratio'd 5-spd and 3.636 gears, you get at least 130mph in 4th with any 15" tire.

The ring&pinion+labor to install is probably gonna be in the $800... something to think about.

I'd love to see the actual performance results of somebody doing back to back to back 1/4 runs with a 4.1/4.3/3.6 on the exact same car to see the difference.

I've already got the 3.636 r&p for my NB build and know it's gonna be great on the street, but I'm really curious about the track.

Nope, stock head. I would imagine a noticable difference with a 99 head judging by a side by side comparison I saw somewhere. Maybe Paul would know?

Keeping it in 4th would definately be nice. I have never played with gearing before, but that is definately something I need to look into when I go with a different rear end this winter.
