It's That Time, Again.

Well here we are Friday evening. I just left work and am once again trying my best to get to PBIR a.s.a.p. so I can go race my C5 against the same red C6 GS but with a lot more power. I expect to loose but can't wait to see what kind of times this 610/573 2011 GS does. I will post up pictures and time slips as soon as I get home tonight.

RACING...Because with baseball, football, basketball, tennis, and golf, you only need one ball

I used to think that I had learned patience as I got older. Then I realized that I just didn't give a shit

My mild mannered DD becomes a racecar when numbers are drawn on the glass like superman dawning his cape and taking off his glasses..





And I finally got a picture with our advertisement. It wasn't there the last time I went..

So when I got to the track they told me the place where we get our timeslips at the end of the track is not working and we have to come all the way back to the staging line to get our timeslips. While I was waiting in line they must have fixed this problem and long story short I didn't get my timeslip for my first pass. But it is ok, I didn't launch very hard and it wouldn't have been real good, anyways. Unfortunately there was a donk that blew the axle and dumped oil all over the track and I only got to make 2 passes. Here is the timeslip from the second pass..



The red C6 went also and I got my family to follow me up there in the new van so my wife and 3 minions were there, too..



They sat in the bleachers right at the tree. Here is where they sat..



And that is important because the wife brought her nice camera and got some nice pictures and video of my car and the red C6 GS. I will share that here as soon as I can.

Oh and my car also does this..



really good gas mileage on the highway. And surprisingly low temps. That's my 3.15 gear. better than the stock 2.73 but less than the Z06's 3.42. 3.15 is the standard diff used with the M6 cars.

It runs Ok.
Driving by you Ok.
It's pretty well tapped out the drivetrain combo.
B8 cam is meant for Boost.
Wallace Racing shows just 355 Hp Flywheel.
It's true 480 Hp I know.

The tall gears killing you and converter stall used.

Perfect for Sunday Bracket Racing for the money.
Might beat the station wagons....they are most consistent and often take home $10,000 cash running 14's -10's 1/4 mile.

Best thing to do is Cam swap and add Nitrous Oxide like Hardcore did.
Daily driver and you don't like Race diff gears 4 series and high stalls 4000-5500 rpm.
Those tricks knock off 2 seconds in Super Stock Drag world.

Nitrous Oxide is still the most cost effective power adder.
+250-750 Hp more bought kits.
Also the riskiest once past +250 Hp shots.

Race drag gears and High stall or stick dump the the clutch at 4k- 6k on launch. Dead Hook.

Otherwise need +250 -500 Hp more power adder.

There is a HARD TIRE Class also No Prep Racing .
What The Donk Master Runs in.
He is King of Florida Now.

Turbo Joe from Joliet IL is King here.

Can't include Street Outlaws need 4000 Hp now to even get in to race.

The Hip Hop 32 Gang.

Donk Master has that Z06.
It's Fast too.

That's all I tuned it to. And on 87 octane I might point out. This was before the last race:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_c...&v=MliLpEy6bSY

Now that the red C6 is radical I will retune my car and add maybe 2-6 degrees of timing to wide open throttle and back off from 11.5-12:1 to 12.6-13.5:1. Or somewhere in that area. I am pretty sure I can get to over 400 at the wheels from where I am without too much trouble just in tuning. Also if I spent more on better than the cheapest pump gas money can buy.

So I have more pictures and videos coming from last night. From the above quotes, someone really likes dealing with blown up shit and having to work at the track. And I have pictures and video coming of that, too. I mean, not me or anything I built, but of someone launching a donk at RPM and making a big mess and shutting down the track.
