Something a little different to see the progress of the ND platform. I grew up drag racing, and old habits die hard. Sometimes, I just have to find a straightaway to exercise my demons.
Thanks to GWR’s exhaust, OVT’s tuning, and E85, 13s in the 1/4 are possible in an ND with bolt-ons. In mineshaft air, I was able to knock .3 off my previous best, as well as crack a 100MPH trap speed. With colder temps comes less traction though. The car has at least .2 more in it in these conditions with more practice on the launch. Straight line from a dig isn’t my priority, so I only do this once in a while so as not to tempt the fate of the transmission.
My backup run going the opposite direction on the road was the 14.01. I had a better launch, but my shift to third was off. That may have been a 13.8 run.
Here’s a video of a run right after I finished my timed ones to show the way that I’m driving. I’m not beating the car to death, so it shows that there’s more to be had. My video run isn’t as clean as the timed ones because I’m trying to hold the camera steady, watch the tach through the phone, and keep it between the ditches.https://youtu.be/WM2WWTuwW-8
