Good run! Just wait until sombody comes out with a loose torque converter. You will be running 10s with that 124 mph. A 4000 stall will give you .7 improvement. Maybe even more with this tight stock converter we have.

Great results! what's your RWHP? RWTO?:thumbsup:
My last dynojet was 450hp and 408tq but since than i had my intake and throttle body ported and a new tune removing most of my TM with the new latest HP beta software.I am getting my car redynoed soon on a dynojet and should be around 460 or so imo.Where you really notice the TM removal is the shifts are much firmer and the car just spins the tires alot after the shifts. The only gripe i have is that the car still leaves the line with no power for about the first 30 ft. and than the power just comes on like crazy. I feel TM is responsible for my slow take offs from a dead stop and this is still the only remaining TM issue i have with my car.

Nice run...what area of the country are you in? We have just about the same rwhp and tq. I can't wait to get back to the track and hopefully see some numbers like that.

[email protected]+ on a soft 1.9 60':surprised

That is GREAT!

You have put together a very nice combination there:thumbsup:

It took a 1.68 60' to get my Viper GTS to run 11.6s, and my mph was only in the 120s.

Thanks:cheers:

I really like my setup i have on my car right now should be at least 460rwhp through a A6 which is a stout number.Your right about a soft 1.9 that is a good way to describe the first 30ft. from a launch. TM is killing our cars from a launch keeping any auto modded or stock from getting better than a 1.90 60ft. other than converter cars which is what we need to get these cars moving off the line.

:agree:
i went a 12.022 at 113.91 with a 1.764 60 ft stock converter and stock gears
1 went a 12.062 at 116.72 with a 1.866 60ft stock converter and stock gears
no spin on either runthe better 60 ft should have netted me 2/10s but TM said no

Dennis seeing that you have run some really good 60ft. times with your car and stock converter compared to myself and everyone else that i have seen posted with auto cars can you give me a few launching techniques to try and help get my car to 60ft. better. I am on drag radials that i heat up until i see a few seconds of good smoke than roll out to the start line. My tires do not spin on the launch,the car is just very slow the first 30ft. or so.I know the TM is always gonna be there from a dead stop launch but any tips you can give me and anyone else who tracks there car would be much appreciated.Thanks!

Thanks Dennis for the PM:thumbsup:
