Talking First time down 1/4 mile

Well finally done it, took a trip to the track to see what she'll do practically bone stock/un-tuned.

Didn't know what to expect but was hoping for under 16s! Was very windy there, could barely open the door was about 30mph cross wind.

So, after running 16.2 on my first run (don't ask ) I got to 15.6 sec. Then I thought I'd try power braking it, would move at 1500rpm so to play it safe with the lights/staging I done it up to 1300rpm and mashed it at the green. Still 15.6 secs just the same as mashing it.

Overall, done about 10 runs and since it was so consistent I called it a day and went round the corner to grab some photos at the airfield.


Timeslip:



Piccies!









The battle is on....

Re: First time down 1/4 mile

Awesome photos! Decent times too, I think lol, I've never taken mine to a track, I guess I just go by the butt dyno!

Now lets see what the tuning can do...

Re: First time down 1/4 mile

Yeah, I'm happy with the times given it was my first time and beat a couple of guys and kept up with a Lotus until 50mph which was fun.

Seems looking at wjjeeps 15.4 is the average stock time so running M+S tires on 20" reps I can dig that.

Re: First time down 1/4 mile

Thanks guys for the comments on the pics, I've been looking for an abandoned building forever just about and getting these shots was worth the entry fee alone!


Done a little more research and I think I could have got the time down some... I rocked up at the track and just hit it up after switching it off for 5 mins to get my ticket/inspection done after a 1 1/2hr drive. Temp gauge was hitting 210 mark halfway down the track and queuing sometimes...

Wish I let it cool down for 30-45 mins now and didn't have 5/8th of gas in the tank. :wall:


Hoping I can get the SCT tuner and a base tune for the next run on Jun 10th because after that its the wait until Aug 5th where she will be datalogged and ready to rock on the 19th.

This is going to become an addiction I can feel it....
