I had a Exciting night.

My car is running and running grate.

Seeing how the motor has 0 miles on it I convinced my self I was just going to make a few passes on it tonight at lo boost and feel it out. I repeated it to my self over and over on the way to the track, and that I was not going to crank it up at and just run wait gate boost this trip. lol well you know me.... lol



First pass

DSBC set to 0
Peek boost in the run 14.6psi
22 psi in the tires

60ft 1.54
1/8 mile ET 6.61
1/8 mile MPH 108.97
1/4 mile ET 10.12
1/4 mile MPH 141.99 mph

A/f was in the mid 10's all the way down the track

The tires spun BAD all the way threw 1st gear prity much

Shifting at 7500rpm

That’s right [email protected] at 14psi!!! I had race gas in the tank (VP unleaded) but that boost could easily be run on pump gas! and this was the cars 1ST pass!!!!! The funny thing was all week Bob and I had been making jokes that the car was going to run 9's at waist gate boost and it dang near did on it's 1st pass!!!


Pass # 2

DSBC set to 10% (so much for me only running WG boost lolol)
Leaned out the High on the ARC-2 2 clicks
Peek boost 16.8psi
Let down tires to 20psi

60FT 1.58
1/8 mile ET 6.42
1/8 mile MPH 114.16
1/4 mile ET 9.78
1/4 mile MPH 146.44

A/F was in the mid to high 11's on every glance on this pass

Shifting at 8000rpm

tires spun REALY bad, but still got a 1.58 got to love these quick time pros

Still well within what could be run on pump gas on a set-up like this. That’s right I fully beleave I now have a 9 second pump gas car! I'll need to test that out at some point.

The car felt REALY good, like a walk in the park.


Needless to say I was VERY excited, I hot lapped the car right back up to the staging lanes to runn again. Still trying to figure out how to launch the car on these DOT slicks I decided maybe I needed to heat them up. so before I staged I did a big dry hop burn out. (may have been a bad idea)

The car was running to good to keep the boost down, so I cranked the DSBC to 35% thinking this would get me around 20psi.

Staged

Lite goes Green

I launch...... POP, BANG!! front tires go totally up in smoke, bang the rev limiter.... SHIT! I think I broke the T-case..... But no grinding, car seems fine.... hmmm about 1/2 track I decide to punch it (why I have no idea) I'm in 2nd just idling, nail it boost comes on front tires erupt into smoke. WTF... Still no noise...

I drive it down the track and up the return line back to my trailer and start looking under the car no oil.... hmmm ooooo crap rear end look under the back the left rear Axle is GONE, totally missing. Crap it's on the Track, I start running over to the staging lanes to tell them when I see a guy walking towards me holding my Axle... " you loose this" lolol

Boost hit 21.3psi at some point either on the launch or when I punched it in 2nd.

Man I wish it would have made that pass full, I can only imagine how 5 more PSI on this set-up would have made it run!

Guess it's time to replace these 14 yr old well raced Axles... Does anybody make any stronger ones that I don’t know about?


But all and all I am VERY happy, I bet if I ran run a few more passes at WG boost I could have run a 9 second pass on 14psi!

9.7 @16psi is amasing, it took 30psi on the old set-up to run that!

Changes from last yr

~300lb lighter
DOT slicks
added .7L to the motor
DR-1200's VS DR-1000's (but with still running 720's kind of pointless)
Short runner intake with 90MM TB
Bigger Intercooler
Bigger Intercooler Piping (2.25")
3' o2 housings VS 2.5"
Power steering removed


Still running a ARC-2, DR- stage 3 heads, DR STREET cams, 720's.....


I LOVE IT, I could not be happier despite the Axle braking.... because I Know when the boost goes up this thing is going to be NUTS!!!

Very nice matt. I know all about turning things loose at the track when you just wanted to test things :p
That thing is a monster. Everything sorted out she should make 8 second passes no problem.
300 less pounds? Man, where did you find it? How much that beast weigh?

We have broken one axle, just last week. It was the rear pass side. No one makes a better one. But luckily ours are pretty stout.

Glad to hear this man, can wait to see the results at full boost...
also keep your eyes on the Oil pressure gauge...

You should try and speak to the guys at Fidanza or JIN and they usually can up grade axles...

Thats just sick!!!

Hey I wanted to know with the extra displacement I have heard that you run lower boost to make the same power. If thats the case you say that it took 30psi to get the same times, now what % (HP) gain would you say you can make per 1psi vs the stock 3L? I guess I am getting at is because of the extra .7 L displacement and the extra o2 per cyl or cfm, its the same as running twenty or thirty something psi on a stock block?

Anyway I have been waiting for this thread for a long time. Congrats Sir

Wow I didn't expect to see this thread when I woke up this morning. Congratulations Matt, that's definitely awesome. Cannot wait to see what happens when you turnt he boost up even more.

It's funny to see this car running an ARC-2 as well hah; any chances of you shifting over to the AEM EMS or is that really not in the budget at the current time? What about larger injectors, you said you're still "only" on 720's?

Congrats Matt! Amazing car, glad it was just an axle that enforced the self control that you don't have!
