Yeah you too! Already have some ideas on what I need to change to go faster....should probably hold off until the IFO or DriveNW events for that lol.
Been super busy with work so I havent had a chance to really go online very much to post the update. So I did get a new personal best on Sunday.
Right lane of course
Video of the pass
From the video you can hear how much quicker the car sounds during shifts (except for shifting out of 3rd, hit the limiter a little
) with the full throttle shift activated. Instead of shifting, hitting the gas, waiting for boost to build then going it is just a quick shift then straight into boost without the lag. It also feels much smoother on the car since you dont get quite the jerk forward of letting up on the gas while shifting. Pretty happy with it so far. I think having it set at 7k is just the right spot.
I am fairly certain I can get the car down to low 11s without spending anymore money. Just need some more seat time getting use to the slicks. Next timeout I will raising the launch control from 6500rpm (I think thats what its set to at least) up to 7000rpm. This should help with the car bogging down at launch and help with my 60ft. Just need to hope that the Duralast axles are up for it
. I was messing with tire pressures all day and was able to get a 1.760 60ft so that is in the right direction.
I do need to get a cage VERY soon. My best pass is 11.57 currently and at 11.49 I get booted from the track until I get at least a roll bar installed. I would rather just skip on just getting a roll bar and go straight for the cage so I wont have to worry about it for quite a while.
Pretty sure I will be removing my deck and speakers in the very near future. The car is mostly a track car anyways so might as well shed some pounds. I will be needing to get a DD civic for my job so the deck will be going into that when I get it. I will be getting the OEM block off plate to cover the opening.
Why I decided to do this:
