New best 14.11

Mixed feelings on the evening, but overall I'm happy.
Best ET 14.11, best mph 100.92.
Previous best with IHI turbo and different tune 14.74 @ 95.97.
60' times were around 2.35.
This was full weight including spare tire and a few other things and 1/2 tank gas.

A gain of 5mph and breaking the 100mph mark is good to see, but I'd really like to see that 13.xx on a timeslip.

I don't think I can do any better on these all-season radials on this particular track.
I also need to do some work on the turbine side of the turbo to open it up a bit.
I had to shift at 6,200 RPM due to the turbo being choked and not producing more power.

I think it has 13.5 @ 103mph it in but will take drag radials and opening up that turbine area.

This is a slower track.
A stock Mazdaspeed 3 will trap around 99-100 mph here.

For sure. There were a few 11-second turbo Diesels there last night, and an 11-second SRT-8 Jeep!
The trucks put the cars to shame. Strange night.

drag radials will work wonders.

you should be running 13s, is there another track where you can get different times at. almost seems like the light system could be not up to par

Yeah there is a "faster" track about an hour further away in Hagerstown, MD.
It's a much nicer track too, but just a longer drive.
I'll probably try it this fall, and hopefully have some drag radials by then.
