Sup fellas, well it was my second time at the track first time was a few months ago it was hot and humid best i did that time was [email protected] these are my results from wednesday night.

RT: 0.422
60': 1.978
330': 5.797
1/8: 8.792
MPH: 82.27
1000': 11.354
1/4: 13.506
MPH: 105.06

can i get an assessment of these times, what do you think the car is capable of? i consider my self a decent driver and fast shifter, i do have a spinning problem in second sometimes, and the launch can use some work.. but with a 105mph trap i think she has more in her.

With a 105 trap I'd say you have about a 12.8 - 13.00 in her. I trap 101 - 102 with a 13.15 et. My 60's are low 1.7's though so that affects my traps.

Or drag radials. The 3.31's are going to hurt but there are people making good times with them.

Nice 60'

My best is 13.5 @ 107 with a 60' of 2.2 not sure what im doing wrong. It is on a night with no track prep and 90-100 degree temps but low humidity. I need some wider tires (275s dont cut it)

yea i need to grab some drag radials i am really killing the life of my daily tires... oh and as for the 60'ft i am pretty decent with launching i hold it at 3500 and slip the clutch fast i get like two chirps then i am off... i believe the worst issue i have is shifting into second without spinning the tires...

i do powershift 2nd to 3rd though i always do it perfect but that is about the only gear i can actually powershift successfully lol i tryed 1 to 2nd and end up missing completely. but then again i really don't want to powershift the car but that 2nd to 3rd is so easy for me. 4.10's going in next month hopefully i will see some low 13's with drag radials and 4.10's maybe even 12's!! gotta love the s197

question: i am going to have to shift into 4th with my 4.10's right? right now i leave it in 3rd at the end of the track which is good to like 110 with 3.31's

110 MPH with 3:31's and stock tires(235/50/18) would be 5950 RPM. With 4:10's you won't get past 95-100 MPH in 3rd, so yes you'll need to shift into 4th. What RPM do you shift at?

i been trying 6k and 6.5k, but shifting at 6500rpm runs best for me
