If your car is running hot you definitely need to remove the cross over pipe and have your computer reflashed by DC Performance. They lower your coolant temp to about 180. Makes a big difference. Plus you will not reach the temps that cause your car to retard your timing thus slowing you down.
Just got back in town from an extended business trip and wow, didn't mean to create a controversy.
As an earlier poster said, at the track growing up, stock meant minor bolt-ons. After reading this thread, in retrospect, I see twister’s intention was doing (100% completely stock).
I have always...
Capital has terrible prep. It's hard to remember any sort of traction at Capital. MIR is the best at least at private rentals but I am sure they are good most of the time and the facility is very nice and clean. :drive:
It was Monday 12/7. There were actually two private rentals going on at the same time. One in each lane. I do not know about Capital but I would be surprised if you could not do a private rental now. Most want the $$.
I was at the track on Monday and was having some issues with missing 3rd gear. Having never had that issue before I thought it was odd and chalked it up to a cold day. On the way home I noticed I could up shift thru all the gears but could not downshift from 6th to 5th. I ended up going from 6th...
I put the rear tires at 24 lbs to give better tire contact and to cushion the load snap. I launched at between 3000- 3500 depending on traction. I prefer 3500 for obvious reasons. I let the throttle out fairly quickly (basically while saying "one thousand").
The outside temperature was about...
I attended a private track rental last Monday that was hosted by Ranger who is famous for his record setting times in Z06s. The track was Maryland International Raceway in southern Maryland.
I have never had the car on a dyno.
Highest mph in the 1/4 was 123 but I am usually at 121...
Ranger picked a great day to set up the rental. It was cold and the track was sticky. If my trans hadn't started to act up I think I could have even done better. I hit a 1.7 60 ft time but 3rd gear would not cooperate.

Mine still hangs for a few seconds & I have over a 1000 miles on it. I wish I had the original cleaned up instead. I ended up taking it off. For the $300 plus I paid for the Xmetal, i do not think I would do it again.
-Lower pressure on the Runflats to 21-23 psi.
-Go around the water box, back in and then roll forward about a foot in front of the water.
-Warm up the tires. Don't torture them just heat them up.
-best way to launch is not racing someone else but leave when you are ready. Your clock starts...
