Drew, Congrats!

That is great! Looks like the tires are really putting the power down!

I need to get out and do some more runs myself! I think the .75% incline really hurt my last runs. I hope to get more in this coming weekend.

Thanks bud, these beefy RE11's, once warmed up, hook up really well. The incline does affect your time. I had a nice decline on these runs, I will go to my secret spot and do more on a almost flat road at sea level, in the past the two roads have had very similar results.

Good luck man, I know you'll do well.

If you are getting wheel spin, might try to change a less aggressive DCT mode to get a smoother gear change - say S3 or something like that?
I noticed that as well, no wheel spin from what I could detect.

No doubt he will, and I think his car is gonna fly with his new wheel setup, etc.

Interesting - I get some traction loss on the 2nd to 3rd change with S5 and S6. Being supercharged I would have expected major traction loss on this change and even some on the 3rd to 4th change...

You must have sticky tires

I hear you, even with just bolt on's, my PS2's would spin! When I ran Drag Radials on the street same thing, unless they were warmed up real good. If cold the RE-11' do spin, but when warmed up they just hook, at least for me they have.

done deal...i think the ad08's will work quite nicely, especially being 295 width

Agreed, those are supposed to be as good as the RE-11's.

Larry,

Got the vids of the Dinan, AWESOME, thank you so much for those Brotha!

Wow, unreal times. Congrats.

Have you considered the impact of prior debates and anecdotal evidence of a performance difference among various DCT drivelogic modes? What is your default mode for such runs?

Just FYI I have argued that modes with surge (i.e. S4->S6) must provide ever so slightly better performance since it is like power shifting a MT and the short duration of surge and slightly broken loose (or maybe on their way to breaking loose) tires will provide improved acceleration. Others have claimed that under repeated testing S2 outperforms S4->S6. I do think the shifts in S2 are faster than in S4->S6 but there is no helpful surge. Of course I think "repeated testing" was much more of a casual observation. Your data might help settle this small debate.
