gpfarrell Posted May 15, 2013 Report Share Posted May 15, 2013 I'm in the 12s... just barely! 12.9713 @ 104.05 on the car's first run down the strip ever. It's got a LMS 4+ and Eibach springs. I removed the spare tire & trunk mat as well as the plastic engine cover to help it shed a little more heat. 19,000 mile Michelins. Track conditions were great for my combo... air temp was about 57 degrees and my AWD would spin lightly for 10-15 feet if left at about 2200 rpms. All the RWD stuff was struggling to hook. For me, it was fast, quiet, easy, simple. Slowing down was the most exciting part. Hate to say it... almost boring! But so what, because I'm in the 12s with a Lincoln! Nearly hot lapping it... maybe a 10-15 minute cool down max, I ran a 13.0903 @ 102.76 and a 13.0840 @ 102.69. My first run was about an 1800 rpm launch with just a chirp. My second was about 2000 with a little squeal, and my 3rd was the 2200 rpm with a bit of spin. 60s were 1.93, 1.90, and 1.89. So, a harder launch was helping... but the heat was slowing me down at the far end. The track was empty tonight; it was a test & tune for street cars only that was rescheduled from a week ago and only about 40 cars showed. Once I had my 12.9713 I was happy but figured I play a little while longer. If I left at 8:00ish I could make it home in time to say goodnight to the kids. I figured I'd have to cool for about an hour to match my first run... and with a 12 sec slip in my pocket I headed for home. Oh, the car had 2 children's booster seats in the back seat the whole time! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
