Track Update

Made three runs at NE Dragway tonight - The car is very consistent at about 12.8 and 106 MPH - the issue is not power at this time it is traction off the line - We are putting BFG G force comps on Monday - It should allow us to launch at a higher RPM (i.e. 3000)- which will reduce the 60 FT time and get the ET lower - We will run again next Friday and hoping for about 12.6 or better - I really think that will be the best this car can do without some significant mods. But Lets be real in the 12 sec arena is pretty darn good company!!

2,000,000 RPM? That's intense!


Back on topic - glad to hear you're running consistently. Looking forward to seeing what this week brings. You're running Unleashed tunes, right?

I'm fortunate to have Maple Grove maybe 20 minutes away. Finally hope to run a few times this spring, but seeing what you guys are achieving with tunes is making it hard to stay stock.

Dave - if you are running A/S they do not grip near as well as a soft summer tire - Lets see what happens next week with the BFG G force -

Just a quick look at Discount Tire Direct, they only have 2!! options for our stock tire size.

Yokohama YK740 GTX
Continental ContiProContact

If you go with the 245/40/19 "plus zero" size, they have about 20 different options. Do you think you'll have any issues with rubbing with the 245's?

there are no issues with a 245 - couple of guys with stock 235 are running them - but that is as big as you can go

I think FastGal is right the A/S tire could hurt you, in addition to the shorter sidewall due to the dubs. A 245/40/19 summer tire would help I think.

Car & Driver actually found that the A/S gave them a tenth better to 60mph and in the 1/4 mile according to their test sheets. But, either way 1/10th you're only going to notice on a time slip.

Here are the Goodyear All-seasons (which I think most of us have the Conti A/S, so...weird?)

Here are the Conti "summer" tires (which again I feel is weird, I thought the "summer" tire option was Goodyear.)

Awesome! I also noticed that most if not all of the 245/40 tires had a 98Y load index, which is higher than the stock tires @ 96Y, by about 100lbs more carrying capacity @ each tire. I've noticed better handling in past cars when going to a higher load rating. I've only got 7 or 8 10ths left on my stock Contis, so it's time to start thinking about it...

Sorry, didn't mean to thread-jack. Love seeing what you are doing on the track. I'll get there someday!
