    So the other thread has gotten lengthy. Wanted to start a new one for any progress during Florida’s “winter” race season. PBIR (1/4mile) did not host TnT so I crossed to the west coast to Immokalee Regional Raceway, only 1/8th mile.
    DA was +1100, temp 70*F and 75% humidity. Car was very inconsistent with their prep and gliding around in 2nd and 3rd. Managed one half decent pass and got a new 1/8 PB and best MPH.

    60ft- 1.58 (being really easy on it)
    330- 4.23
    660- 6.43
    Mph- 113

    Car is a 2015 premium A6, Procharger P1sc stage 2, GT350 manifold, Mak inlet, full exhaust, Fore fuel system, Id1000, Lund racing E85 street tune, Brett Lasala built 6R80, circle D 2C converter, shaftmasters DS, Steeda Kmember, 3.55 gears, Forgestar F14 dragpack, Baer Brakes, full interior.

    I had some tools in trunk, 5gal of E85, spare tire and spare axles, 3/4 tank of gas. So still some improvement by leaving some of that crap out.

    Nice run. Congratulations! I haven't seen your other thread. Did your PB 1/4 mile with this setup just miss dipping into the 9s?

    I’ve been denied 9s for too long now. Lol

    Last November car ran 10.06 at 137 on stock converter, blower, and MS103 in -550 DA (crazy good in south Florida)

    In February I went after putting fuel system and ran 10.2 at 135 in +500 DA. Something felt wrong. Later found plastic T on vacuum signal to BOV and fuel regulator was cracked.

    Then beginning of March broke my stock converter, built the trans and got a 2C converter. That was it for “cold” weather

    Went to a daytime rental in June and it was 95* outside, couldn’t fill down car for shit, IATs were 110+ at the starting lines, ran 3 straight 10.10s at 138. DA +3500

    Finally weather cools this week to low 70s and track doesn’t host TnT. Lol so I went to this 1/8mile place 2hrs away and got this time. This coming Friday there will be TnT at local track. Da won’t be anywhere near negative

    Update!

    working dayshift this week and weekend I decided to take a gamble, load up car Thursday and take it to work on friday and head straight to the track when I got off of work. Track is prepping for Citrus Nationals and it was packed but hosted a DR/Slick on TnT night.

    after the 130mile drive and only cooldown being the 20minute that it took to put skinnies on the car delivered BIGLY (insert trump face). Car even though hot took the F off. Someone crashed soon after and had to be taken to hospital so I didn't want to get in like late in the night since I worked today at 6AM and still needed to swap tires. Below is the slip, pic of the car with some local On3 TT cars and weather conditions underlined for 7PM (run occurred at 6:45). I have a video of the car running with a Hellion TT S550 and was a badass race. Cant wait for cooler weather, still haven't seen log to know if theres any room for improvement on the shift rpm. 60ft is about 1 tenth from its previous best of 1.41

    Congrats, cars running very good. Looking at your slip from Immokalee I was predicting a [email protected] looks like I underestimated it a bit.

    Thanks. Same. But in my mind I felt like I was babying it because of their prep. And car was spinning enough on back end to make it shift early to 4th so I was hopeful for a 6.2x at PBIR. Basically identical weather as last week at immokalee so no change there.

    Tomorrow after work I’ll take some time and throw the a short video of the 2 angles I got. Feel kinda stupid for putting my GoPro in the hood perfectly angled for the race and then forgot to press record.

    Update: quest for a little more continues. Found an $80 Snow performance methanol kit on FB marketplace, pump works great. Bought a VMP breakaway harness to move the IAT sensor down street and a little more meth line. Hope it likes the cooling mist.

    Saw you guys there that night. I was in the grabber blue 2013 in lane 7&8. Curious why you guys were running N/T? Sounds like you're running the race BOV? It's loud af but sounds good during your burnout.

    I did see one of your runs. Good pass. I use a turbosmart 50mm, it’s a little more compact, takes less room than the red race valve.

    For the longest time I didn’t even know I could run 7-8, once I found I could run in the NT lane and avoid the longer lines I started timing it and get up to the NT lanes after the guys went so I was near the front next go around. That just turned into a habit. A lot of times the 7-8 lanes are longer or “artificially” longer because there’s a habit at that track where people let their cars cool down on the staging lanes instead of the parking lot.

    How you do?

    I hear ya. I've thought about running N/T just because they get 1st hit on the fresh prep but I know as a spectator it sucks watching N/T cars run and I want to give then something to look at LOL.

    I went 9.78 and 9.88... not terrible for the conditions

    My car is hitting the limiter on the 1-2 shift and made a loud bang in the rear after the 2nd gear shift on the 1st pass and I was pretty sure I broke something. Was gonna head straight home but figured if something was broke I'd know it if I tried to make another hit. Ran fine the 2nd pass so i'm not sure what it was but I did just install BMR lower control arms so im thinking it had something to do with those. Gonna reset my pinion angle and hopefully get a revision for the 1-2 shift and go back this Friday.

    Nice progression, Carlos! [email protected]! You're getting that bad boy nicely dialed in. So you're liking the methanol kit?
