So went to the track open day (test and tune) at YAS marina drag strip in Abu dhabi on the the 24th.
but I wasn't prepped at all, I didn't even know how much air I had in the tires and a little under half a tank full during my runs. the best run I had was 13.05, bit disappointed at first, Drove an hour and half to the track, cooled it down, but the temp was about 65 and 80% humid, not sure about the DA, but to give an idea of how wet the air was, it got so foggy that the track had to be closed early. I was the only WK2 owner there, and everybody was checking it out while I had the hood opened to cool it down which felt great
BUT, when I kept watching the other car's times, no one got a better time than me, well except for the CLSs,M5s and the GTRs and supra dragsters, apart from those, the second best which was a slightly tuned porsche cayenne turbo (as per owner's claim) made 13.1xx, I'm talking like six camaro SSs, supercharged Sierra truck, modded X5 twin turbo (not the M), mustangs GT 5.0, modded caprice SS, turbo Nissan patrol and lumina SS, there was a wk1 with exhaust and tune that only managed 13.66, so yea I didn't need to complain about anything. I have the slips with me but the prints are so bad they are almost not visible, I could try to post pics of them but it would be pointless, The guys with the modded supras and GTRs werent happy with their times either, it was just a bad day to go to the track.
Here are some vids, but they are not good quality I should warn.
In this run, my jeep just spun the tires like it was 2wd.
Getting a number, went nice with the plate number lol
And these are the track weather conditions
For those who don't know, my mods are a Johan tune (still being revised), carbon fiber bwoody CAI, a custom catback with x pipe using Borla S rear mufflers and a catch can. On much colder and dryer weather with low to negative DA, I would hit 4.1-8.0-12.6.
Also ran the EVIC timer while on track, it is ridiculously accurate.
Don't know if I would go tomorrow with better prep and also try out the tune file that I received today from Johan.
Thoughts and comment are always appreciated
