A VIS carbon fiber hood with vents would look nice on your white z!

I guy up here has a stillen SC on a G37 coupe 6 MT and he broke his back axile launching at 1800 rpm with toyo 888 on the car.
His best pass was a 13.3 !!!!!!
I felt bad for him.
you guys will just have to wait till i get the GTM stage 2 on my car for 11 second passes.

If i had RCY stillen SC in my car with my current set up it would go easy 11.5's the 4.08 gears and the rev matching on my 7 AT would keep it in the power band of the stillen.
his set up make great RWHP.
Its been raining here for 6 days staight and it going to rain all weekend including monday going to the track does not look good.

J nauat i hope that you go faster tonight. Goods luck, did you get my email on the my car with the data logging.

Ugh, terrible night at the track. One of my worst nights in a while.

First run ----- 13.5 @ 106 mph, 2.1 60ft. - didn't get on the throttle quick enough, wheeeeeeelhop

Second run-- 13.6 @ 106 mph, 2.3 60 ft. - tried to stomp the gas pedal sooner/harder, spun pretty badly at the launch

adjusted the tire pressure from 25 psi to 22 psi to help the car hook up better and then they cleaned up the track a bit too.

Third run ---- 13.5 @ 105 mph, 2.2 60ft. - BOGGED at the launch

so now the car is actually getting traction, decided to launch from 4400 rpm instead of the usual 4000 rpm.

Fourth run --- 13.6 @ 105 mph 2.2 60ft. - bogged slightly less, I think I didn't get on the throttle hard enough when the tires gripped / the rear squatted

Fifth run ---- 13.6 @ 104 mph 2.1 60 ft. - tried to launch a little harder this time with marginal result, lost 1 mph cuz I hotlapped.

Lined up for the final run of the night and then some car broke down. Said f*ck it and left... drove home a bit disappointed. :shakes head:

For those who care, the DA's were about 1700ft on average for the night. ~82 degrees on avg.

For those that are curious about what usually I do for each run:
Typical night for each run about 25 psi on the rears, inflate the fronts to 40 or 50 psi if i have time. The I'll flip the switch on the dash (wired to the brake light fuse) then do a quickie burnout to warm up the tires. Line up and rev up to 4,000 rpm, let out the clutch quickly and mash the gas pedal. Lift on every shift. Then I'll try to let the car cool off minimum 30 minutes between each run, 45 to 60 mins if the motor gets really hot (180+ degrees). And of course adjust from run to run to make things work.

Don't feel so bad Ray, Jay mentioned the track was terrible tonight.

For those who were curious. The fastest time for my car was a 12.2@116. However, that was with lots of wheel spin in second gear. The second run was a 12.4@121MPH.

Unfortunately the car isnt prepared for drag racing, but that 121MPH trap is good for mid 11's with better traction off the line. I'll let Jay add his thoughts, since I wasnt there!

tranceformer 05-18-2011 10:54 PM

I watched that 12.2 run from the pit lanes. Jay managed a 2.01 60ft but spun shifting into 2nd gear. I bet it would have been a high 11 pass if it weren't for that. Otherwise a solid run.

I wish i had a 1/4 mile track closer to me. All i have is a 1/8 mile track full of mustang owners that hate imports lol

Congrats on the time jnaut and RCZ! :tup:

Sucks that you had a bad night tranceformer, hopefully it will go better next time.

First of all, I'd like to thank Ray for making the thread and keeping this clean list. If you like, you can move over some of the times from the other thread. Then maybe I can "sticky" this thread and delete the other one?

About the whole AT vs MT thing, I was with a friend who had a 6 MT 370Z the day I went to the drag strip. His best time was like a 13.2. He told me that his 60 ft time was similar to mine on my best run, but it was later on that my car went ahead.

I'm sick and tired of seeing the manual vs. automatic debate on the forum. It seems like EVERYONE just get carried away with this debate. I'm at a stage where I'm going to close my eyes and start banning people (temp ban) anyone who tries to TROLL M6 vs. A7 topics. Just like oil cooler threads, I am done with this topic. Lets keep auto vs. manual debate out of the forum. In this modern age, it's simply a choice of transmission, nothing more.

Alberto MAY be best driver in the world but he still need to respect our forum rules and respect his colleagues here on the forum. I personally DO NOT care if he can out run Michael Schumacher but if he is going to be trolling on the forum, I have to take action. It doesn't take a scientist to figure out whether someone is trolling or no. I will NOT allow anyone troll on this forum. Anyone want to troll, he/she can go to other Z forums. They fit in perfectly there.

Congrats to all the drivers with their fantastic times. I know it'll only improve from here on. :tup:
