I'm soooo jealous of anyone that can run at this time of year!!!!
How big of a tire are you running on the back?
Do yo get any weight transfer at all?
What kind of 60 foot times would be good for that car?

The mph speaks to much better times in the future just so long as the axle can hold a good launch.
Take the box next time, we want to see some times for that thing.

I forgot Volvo's are rear drivers. I guess you need some stickier tires. That 60' time is pretty bad. Trap speed is nice though. How much boost are running for those times? Are you running race gas?

I guess his lag got him. That turbo's mighty big. I wonder if a delay box would help spoolup?

Actually Mike, it just boils the living shit out of the tires (kuhmo 215/55/16's... had to beg borrow and steal a set off a buddies cars that had treads on them) or bogs. Its tricky as hell.

That being said, it bogs cause if I dont make an effort to get the turbo spinning at the line. I think next time, Im going to put a 2step on it, so I can bounce a (lower) rev limiter, that spools it like no tomorrow. Between that and drag radials it should launch hard as hell next time.

Oh... only 14psi... the next injectors I swap in should be good for 25 Twisted Evil

oh... I was running pure 100 octane VP and it was about 92* out. I only got to make 3 passes (dropped from a 16.0 @ 100) and Im really honestlynot a manual driver... I suck at it (off the line). I miss my TH400's lol.

Its on the "12.0 and faster" list. Trying to maximize what I have.

The lag really isn't an issue... only if I launch to easy. On DR's sidestep at 5500 and that sucker is instant spooled. I think DRs+ 2step (you wouldn't believe how a spark cut rev limiter spools a turbo Wink ) should do the trick.

Hell... I KNOW I could have squeezed another .3 -.5 out of it with a couple more passes. I knew it was going to be my last pass so I really just wanted to break 13's.

SWEET!! I'm a little disappointed that you had to go and take out one of my favorite year Camaro's though Sad Get some tires on that bad boy and I promise you'll see a big improvement.

Also, I just noticed your in California. Where abouts is Elk Grove?

I just might come up there. I know my friends would love to go since they're all Import Enthusiasts. They've already dragged me to a couple of shows like that. The shows were actually pretty impressive but I still felt alittle out of place Embarassed From the sound of it this show is going to be a big one. I'll talk to them and see we can arrange to get up there. I'll email you to let you know

Also since your going to be out here 7-11 then you should come down to Irwindale Speedway on Thursday night and check out the 1/8 mile action. It's alittle ways out from Santa Barbara but the racing is always good. I'm there almost every Thursday watching or racing. I probably won't be racing my car since I'm getting it ready to go to the dyno next month but their are alot of nice cars and good burnout contests. Maybe even race your car. We're pretty darn close to sea level (600ft ASL I believe) and since it's at night the airs always good. Again it's a ways out from SB but think about it.

I just might... but Ive promised myself not to:

touch
modify
race
abuse
fart
or otherwise do anything to my car untill after that show! lol

Its a euro only show so the attitudes are a bit better than your general import show (volvos always go over well there to though). Your MORE than welcome to come down and hang out, I'll be BBQ'ing so defiently have to have some burgers with us!
