8's on 18's in a full weight C7:
Ya we are trying to get him down to 10.9 but with rules. The car must stay on tires that grip well on the road in all conditions. We are weekend warriors with mostly street driven machines. He is coming back to the shop on Monday for a new diff, cooling fan upgrade, and the first round of tuning since the car was initially setup and delivered to him.But it looks like you're having a ball. Was that your buddy in the near lane? Way to go...….."Speedy".
Ya we are trying to get him down to 10.9 but with rules and if you do that I'll need to up my game. My [email protected] can't compete. I'll have to go twin turbo and the girlfriend will leave my crazy ass. I have a twin turbo now that I think will run in the low 13's and with a few boost mods, intakes and downpipes and tuning they've gotten into the low 11's. BMW 535i station wagon (3.0 6 cylinder 7200 RPM engine) for gods sake. Soccer mom hauler. Not a SUV. I've got the Tahoe for my SUV, didn't need two.The car must stay on tires that grip well on the road in all conditions
Brian, you need to listen to me and grow up just for a minute and ask around and understand what I am telling you. If I keep seeing you post up my name and my job's name bashing with lies, I am going to sick our lawyers on you. I think that anybody here can look at any of my posting and understand quickly I very much have the means to do this. The law is on my side right now. You need to stop bashing people and businesses you do not know on other forums or it is going to cost you. This is no threat but a warning because I do not want this. But you very much need to stop. We all must grow up sometime and you have gone too far. I will not come fight or race you. I will sue the hell out of you and when you can't pay I will end up with a lien on your precious farm. I don't think you want to do that to your kids. Stop being stupid. Please. For your own good, brother.
Ya man. I have been careful in my building to try not to upset the handling characteristics of the car. They should do good on a road course. I have to talk to my racing buddy. There is a road course at Palm Beach International Raceway and we need to lap it a few times. The cars run cool. They don't pack on temps. And they are on street tires. I gotta get some lap times on the road course to go with the timeslips from the drag strip for a better all around assessment of my car's performance capabilities.Don't forget to try these beasts out at some track days also. 2 Minutes around a road course will get you speed, your juices flowing better than a 11-12 second run. You might get out of the car shaking. They're Vettes for god's sake.....make 'em handle.
I think I need to fatten up. My racing buddy suggested sand bags or otherwise adding 100lbs to the rear of my car after spinning the tires so bad on launch.Now.....I don't talk about your handicap and there you go talking about mine.:laughing: I'm just a little "chunky".
