Eugene-Taiwan Gpwr 60-130 in a 6MT

Hi Guys,

I am been stuck in RAIN and more RAIN in Taiwan its actually been raining for 8 days now and I felt like shit! But this morning when I woke up my praying worked. I saw sunshine finally SUN
so the first thing we did was I got my car washed then waiting until the pavement dried up well enough to go out and so some clean runs. I had my v-box and my Gopro(thanks Eric PYspeed) so I was set to go

Mind you my times are slower then all the reported DCT cars but my car is 6MT so I lost time there. I think the ESS car did it in 8.56 secs. and Sammy's car did it in 8.95 secs. The only think I felt made the big difference with the DCT cars is the Bigglare has 3.62DIFF (please correct me if I am wrong). So this will help with acceleration. I think I am the only one thus far in a 6MT who has done a 60-130 in an s/c kit. But I think Brian's car (Gintani) will be faster then mine. He has more HP and also lighter in curb weight as well which will really help out. getting off the rolling start.

I am currently using RE-11's Bridgestone which I think have enough grip to hold the pwr. On one of my runs which I started off 2nd I felt there was slip but good enough no skretching but felt a little slip (which I think is good) I am only running 275/30/19 on my car which I feel is a good size. So for all the people who want to go smaller but in bigger diameter I don't feel there is a need.

The Temp. was 66.2F which is a good temp. I think if I was in a colder environment I would have done better. I am getting a clutch set up in a couple of months don't know if that will make a difference. I don't think so but you never know when you have lots of HP

I thought I made a 9.0 sec flat run but I think I was mistaken or I am missing some v-box files. But the only one I could locate was 9.29 secs which also made me very happy. I thought I would end up to be around 9.95 secs. but 9.29 is very good. So I am happy with the result so far. I also tried to shift as fast as I could you guys can judge in the vids below tips on how to shift faster is always welcomed

Eugene, good work brother! glad to see you enjoying your kit...and getting out there and hitting some runs....im surprised you think your 275 tires are enough?!?! although im sure you RE-11s are much gripper than my 285 falkens...which i took a shot of a day after i did my vbox runs....9.29 seems good...im sure you will get faster times with more practice.
its good to have another party shooting for good 60-130...you gota rep for G-power!
here were my F*cked tires!

Quick question why are 60-130 times so important? Europe tests 0-200Kmh as the standard & 0-200-0 for performance benchmarks.

Ya, I think is very fun. But the 275 in my opinion is good just because of the grip of the tires is very good already I don't really want something too sticky just because of the noise it makes if you go R888 or Corsa tires. trust I have used them on my car and I just don't like the winey noise.

Sit in Vadim's car I saw the picture he got R888 .. to me exhaust should is nice but this winey sound I really can't stand.

I know I can make a better time I am sure of it. Its night time now and after just watching AVATAR in 3D I want to go driving real fast

I think the main reason is because of the fun for a normal driver with some heavier mods.

I mean if you where to so a 0-200km you really have to be skilled at the launch if you drive a 6MT to hit a good time.

And I think now with the DCT evolving sometimes is does put the 6MT at a disadvantage.

In TW its really popular as well just with 100km/h-200kn/h which is very similar.

Nice 60-130 run Eugene.

Get some more rubber under that car, and your 60-130 time will improve.

275's ain't gonna cut it anymore with 600Hp.


BTW: I saw a vid of a G-power kit car vs. a turbo Civic posted this morning...

Have you seen this clip on Youtube?

Thanks!

I think I will have to buy a PC for my vbox runs it seems on the parrallels software on the MAC it just doesn't download all the files but just parts.

maybe with a 1% or 1.5% decline I will hit high 8s

WoW! now that makes feel like going out and making some more runs.

I tried my tires this morning and still feel that 275/30/19 are good enough and the RE-11s last for a long time as well.

the Nitto NT05 are just as good BUT don't last. I have tried both.

for the next sets will be AD08 I have never tried them and thought of giving them a shot.
