The best stock time anyone has heard of is 15.39 seconds

I hit my tc button revved it up to 4500 cuz if u go above that u usually spin so i got up to 4500 and let it fly and i got 15.39 but my first run i took it up to 3500 and the engine bogged down a bit but still managed to run 15.4.

When did you apply the TC and when did you take it off during your run? SHould you keep it on for the rest of the run or diengage the TC after take off?

Seb656 03-02-2004 01:06 PM

T/C is what screws us so hard incase you never caught that if it weren't for T/C we would have a much better 0-60 and 1/4 time

I turned it off when i got on the track and since my car was left on it never turned back on till i left the track later that day i hit the button and turned it on..when ur about to make ur run just hit the button..i don't use the TC if im racing or at the track i just turn it off. TC Is definetly ur enemy when it comes to launching and on the track when it rains and its slippery its ur friend. If you want to permanetly disable it . Just pull the fuse its # 46.

would taking out the TC fuse affect anything on the car, or make it run improperly?

Nah the only thing happens is that the ABS light comes on but again id only do it when im on the track.

svt 1/4 times(Las Vegas strip)
 
A BUDDY AND I JUST PURCHASED 2003 SVTF'S, A YELLOW EURO EDITION AND A INFRA RED .BOTH ARE LOADED ALL THE UPGRADES. WE HAVE DONE A FEW MODS TO BOTH CARS
KINDA MAKING THEM A LITTLE DIFFERENT ALONG THE WAY. MIND BOTH CARS HAVE LESS THAN 5K MILES.
- MY BUDDIES HAS A FEW EARLY MODS LIKE THE, STEEDA SHORT RAM INTAKE (DONT WASTE YOUR $), 21/2" FLOWMASTER CATBACK. ABS BYPASS SWITCHES.
- MY CAR HAS SIMILIER MODS BUT HAVE, AEM CAI INSTEAD, VF ENGINE MOUNT,MAGNAFLOW 21/2"CATBACK, AND A RESCENT MOD, OFF-ROADPIPE.O;AND ABS SWITCH.
BOTH CARS WERE PRETTY CLOSE TO BEING NECK AND NECK STOCK,I USE TO PULL AWAY A TAD IN 3RD GEAR THOUGH.
WE BOTH RESCENTLY RAN THE CARS ON THE STRIP TO SEE WHAT THEY WERE CAPABLE OF.
AND WE WERE A LITTLE DISCURRAGED.
FIRST OFF THE ELEVATION HERE IS AROUND 2100FT ABOVE SEA. HEARD THAT THE CARS AVERAGE ABOUT 1/2 A SEC QUICKER AT LOWER ELEVATIONS. NEED SLICKS OR DRAG RADIALS FOR THOSE HARD LAUNCHES FROM THE LINE.I SEE ATLEAST A 1/2 -1 SEC LOSS OFF THE LINE DUE TO THE 1ST AND 2ND GEAR ONE LEGGERS.BOTH THESE TIME SLIPS ARE THE BEST OUT OF 6 RUNS, TRYING MANY DIFFERENT TIRE PRESSURES AND LAUNCHES WITH AND W/O THE ABS DISENGAGED. BEST TIMES WERE ACCOMPLISHED WITH TRACTION CONTROLS ON AND FRONT TIRES AT ABOUT 30PSI.
* MY TIME SLIP * BUDDIES SLIP
1/8 MILE @10.371 1/8@ 10.784
1/4 @16.034 1/4@ 17.019
WE BLAME MY BUDDIES CAR BEING SLOWER DUE TO THE STEEDA SHORT RAM INTAKE,I AT FIRST BLAMED HIM THINKING HE WAS A CRAPPY DRIVER BUT I EVEN TOOK THE CAR FOR ONE RUN AND SAW A MAJOR TOP END POWER LOSS AROUND 6- 7 THOUSAND RPMS. HE HAS SINCE REPLACED IT WITH A AEM CAI AND MAN WHAT A DIFFERENCE(DONT WASTE YOUR MONEY).I HAVN'T RAN WITH THE ORP YET BUT I DO SEE A BIG POWER DIFFERENCE AT AROUND 4-5 THOUSAND RPMS,WE SHALL SEE NEXT TEST AND TUNE IS ON THE 13 OF THIS MONTH. I WILL KEEP YOU POSTED.
----------------------------------- ITS ONLY ANOTHER PAYMENT----------
