Atco 1/4 mile Track Pass

It was extremely warm today but decided to attend a track rental anyway to get some seat time. I previously only made a single pass on the car when it went 10.46 on a day with -1500 DA.

Track temp was 91 degrees but heres my slip from today:





Sorry but videos were recorded with a potato. Talontsi97 on youtube should have some high def videos up shortly

It was only a matter of time before someone figured out that they can fit some actually slicks back there and start focusing on wrecking these 60ft times.

Well done mahfucker! That's fucking quick! I learned the hard lesson tires last September, never again will I do the strip with street tires.

Did you adjust the rear suspension at all? Full soft?

I don't know drag racing, but I know that's an awesome ET and trap speed for this platform. Well done sir!

I think you added the headers, and I didn't keep track of where you were before...so did they help the way you expected?

Yes, I've only tried on full soft.

DA was about +1960 today. I probably won't make another pass until fall.

Its very hard to make comparisons with the conditions being what they were today but I think they helped me! I will have to see what I can do when the temps drop.

I ran 10.46 @ 135 my first time out without the headers but the DA was -1500 at about 40 degrees. I was happy to be able to run a 10.49 in these conditions (DA +1960). I have a feeling the numbers will be where I want them when I make a pass in the fall

Holy crap! That's a great time.
Do you have any extra cooling for the DCT?
Did the DCT ever overheat during burnouts?
Congrats!

Great time! It was hot here in NJ yesterday with high humidity for this time of year. Very impressive to run that in the heat / DA.

With a set of skinnies up front you could be knocking on a low, low 10 sec. pass.

And a little 50 shot would push it over the edge.

OP, you have the Dodson clutch packs, correct?

Dave, I was thinking the same thing! I'll be ready this fall to drop the times considerably.

I'm on the factory transmission, on factory clutches. 40k miles on the car and no issues yet. It shifts insanely hard down the track.

No extra cooling but I do plan on doing some upgrades in that department.

Thanks Roman. I love the kit. Performs without any hiccups. I love the fact that I never have to fiddle with anything. Slap it on and drive the car.
