11.55 @ 118.9, New PB
Dr. Carl sure is an inspiration, or maybe he just plain made my Scat Pack jealous because it ran like never before Saturday at Atlanta Dragway. Weather was great, approx. 300 DA, temp in the low 50's and a 10 mph headwind. The track was well prepped for a Wally race.
I had been running 18 - 19 PSI in the 305/45-18 MT Street R's but bumped them up 20 20.5 for this run based on the discussion in Carl's PB thread and saw a significant increase in MPH. No wheel spin at launch but log showed very small amount of spin at 2 and 3 shift. This was the first time using 90 octane pure gas bumped to 99 octane with TORCO. Saw 1 spike of 1.5* KR right after 4 to 5 shift, about normal for this car.
On previous logs I frequently saw a flat spot in RPM at about 3100 RPM in 1st gear. Sean gave me another race tune that increased idle rpm to 850 and shut off traction control (I was unaware TC could be turned of with the tuner and had been turning it off manually). I launched from idle on this run where previously I had been attempting to launch at 1800 (which resulted in actual launch anywhere from 1500 to 2200).
Just don't look at RT. We had a sleeping contest, fortunately the guy in the Mustang in the right lane won that. Unfortunately I only got 1 run Saturday. Rumor around Atlanta Dragway was Nuke posted new info on the Meat Thermometer Mod and I wanted to get home to see what that was all about or maybe it was to go to neighbors wedding. That was a couple of days ago, cant remember.
