Launch as hard as you can. I think the stock torque converter locks up at 1500 RPM? Can anyone confirm? If that's true, then that is the max RPM you can launch at.

No that's not the max, but I'm not sure what the max is exactly. Usually if I launch at higher than 1500, I get wheelspin at launch and my 60 ft times are crap. I guess since lowering the pressure will increase traction, I should be able to launch a bit higher.

so you still going to the track tonight blades?

Nope. Forgot about a wedding I have to go to tonight. I thought it was Saturday night, but I was wrong. Have other weddings to go to next Friday and Saturday nights. So now, I'm aiming for two weeks from tonight.

Tried my new trans. & it works perfect:) Going to Atco!
 
There should be massive crowds there this weekend. I'm sure 100 Hondas will be there. Will I be the only 350Z? It would be nice to have company, but when you're the only 350z, there's always a friendly crowd, checking you out/wishing you luck. The class I'll enter(no other choice available) is 11.5 & higher. That class should have by far the most cars. Why didn't they put a 13.0 & up class as well? Working trans. a big plus. Because of the number of cars in my class, I'll have to risk cutting the lights in every race. My attitude going in is NOT, (from forum wars) "representing with class". I'm going there to win!!!! I'm sorry, not being cocky. It's just that here, in 370z.com, many guys race & want to do better. At 350z.com, most prefer dyno racing...... Sorry, but that's how I think & talk....

:tup: Good luck! Hey i saw that forum wars vid with the 350z vs the mustang. Was that you? If so i kinda felt like you held back. No offense, i just wanted to see the Z do better.

andre12031948 07-15-2011 09:18 AM

If it was next weekend I'd be there Andre. Good luck !

I'm itching to get back there. But my oil cooler doesn't seem to Be functioning correctly , I need to figure it out. Car gets hot and stays hot. Pretty mch like I dont even have a cooler. And that will just be annoying at the track having to wait even longer.

You had your car tuned by Adam? He tuned my car. With your H.P. you should be in the low 12s. Wait till cool weather. I'll go with you. If you can catch & pass me in cool weather, you should be under 12.5.......

Here's a quick way to check if oil is flowing through the core:

Switch your display to view the outside temperature. If you did not relocate the sensor it should be somewhat behind the oil cooler, and it ends up reading higher temps than ambient. The size of the core will determine how much higher the temp sensor will read more than the [correct] ambient temperature.

Adam originally tuned my car but he left and drew retuned it. I agree with you on low 12s! And cant wait to get there again. Would be awesome if you were there too. I'll pm u soon.


And tranceforner I'm confused on ur temp sensor technique lol

All this track talk is depressing

andre12031948 07-16-2011 06:10 PM

just came back from Atco
 
What a hot, crowded, mess. Temp. at track must have been 130+. Bottom of my sneakers were melting. Over 300 cars entered(most were bracket 3-mine) jet cars, & tons of people. They changed their mind about elimination. Decided on practice runs only. I got only one at 1pm. When bracket racing in hot summer time, I take it easy on the car. Just want consisted times. For me 12.8s or 12.9s are perfect dial in times. My run was 12.92 @ 107.3 perfect. The new trans. was amazing. It feels so great not using 2 hand to shift into second:). Tomorrow they expect thosands of people. I don't want to go back. Heat, changing tires, waiting on line to get in, hours of traffic coming home, & competing against apx. 150? cars. I got to be crazy to go back to Atco tomorrow:eek::confused::crying::shakes head:
