I had no idea, I stopped caring about drag racing a long time ago :icon17:

Sounds good, let me know when you're planning on coming down. I should be at both of those events.

thats because you're slow :stirthepot:

let me know when you want me to take the keys to the vette and set you a time :tiphat:

but yes one of those 2 i plan to attend i think the MA motorsports is higher chance due to dates/schedules

Or because it's more fun to drive some twisty backroads than at a drag strip IMO.

I might be slow, but you're still not going to beat me now :stirthepot:

We shall see lol. If I wasnt working so much I'd probably have better times by now.

Shooting for 12.50's minimum on street tires.

Went to mason dixon dragway yesterday w some friends. Had a blast and didnt do so bad. Im running a fast intentions turbo kit w an ecutek tune on nt555rs 18x11 305/35/18.
These were my best runs. On lower boost settings i was averaging 12.1 with really bad 60ft times. With more practice and some better tires i think i can reach my goal of 10.999 lol
I was in the right lane on these runs.

Just took my '12 370z to the strip at Bradenton Motorsports Park last Thursday for the first time to see what I could get out of my Z. 13.61 was the best I did out of 5 runs (I didn't keep my time slips - I will in the future to get better feedback from you guys.).

I couldn't believe how much better the grip was compared to the street. I can floor it from a dead stop on the street and my back end will be all over the place, holding the brakes to build up RPM isn't even an option. However, on the drag strip, I found that I was actually able to build up RPM at my launch by holding the brakes, with little to no wheelspin. DRASTIC difference in grip as far as I can tell. Anyways, I've got a couple questions about this:

1 - Does it actually help to hold the brakes to build up RPM for a launch, or does it just feel that way? If so, do any of you 7AT guys have any insight on what RPM to launch at?

2 - Is it best to let the 7AT shift on it's own, or is it possible to out-shift the computer by going into 'semi-auto' mode on the 1/4 mile strip?

I'm trying to see what I can change to get a better time out of my 7AT than a 13.6. I have a Mesiterschaft CBE, and K&N Typhoon intake. Stock tires right now, but I have Continental Extreme Contacts coming in later this week, which I hear are lighter than the stock tires so maybe that will help. I removed the spare tire/tools as well for my day at the strip. I was shifting myself, and tried a couple of runs launching at 0 RPM, then I tried a few launching with a little RPM built up, and didn't notice much of a difference - but perhaps I just need to launch at an even higher RPM (like 4-5k maybe?). Thanks in advance for the answers and advice.

Barely launch off idle like around 1200 works best for me in my 7AT G37.

Yeah it was cold out like 50* the DA was like -1200. Which is free hp.

I still subscribe to this thread to see how it's going. I like the energy!

NOW you're talking! That MPH will drop you into the tens, BUT you need to get serious. Bold on some drag radials, PLEASE. You can beat me, I know you can. :)

Your OEM torque converter will limit howhigh your engine will rev. Did you pull a brake fuse to allow it to rev? If not you won't see the gain. I'd try to leave as hard as possible until you GET wheelspin.

Put it in drive and let the computer shift. You might be surprised. I gave up trying to out-think mine, and went quickest.

GREAT consistency. (6) runs within 35 mins, and that late at night?! You were doing laps. A rare privilege.

Keep it up!

Thanks for the encouragement @sharpbycoop ! Yeah the bug got me good, all i wanna do is run my car now lol. I have some nt05rs on standby, i was practicing on an old old pair of nt555rs, I wasnt too impressed with them, took extremely long to warm them up and i just couldnt get traction on launch. I've got a private track rental in two weeks and will bust out my nt05rs. Hopefully i can improve that 60ft time to 1.6-1.7 or better lol. What is the best rpm for launching on a 6mt?
