13.3 @ 101 mph, stock sti, critique please.
i ran my baby 7 times last night and got my best time on the 7th pass. oh wait car has a 50/50 hybrid recirc bov. that's it. that would affect performance (if it really does). oh first time i even launched my sti so all my practice on this car was at the track. ive done a little spirited driving but not launched until the track. here's how i did:
(notes) missed second and third and was nervous as hell
(notes) bogged launch
13.6 @99 mph
(notes) first pass with less than 2.0 60ft. it was 1.903
(notes) bogged launch
(notes) 1.85 60 ft and all passes up this point i have been redlining first, about 6500 second and the rest at about 6200 rpms.
(notes) printer wasn't working to get my slip but my friends said that was my time, and i missed 5th gear and redlined all the gears this time.
7th and final pass:
1000 et: n/a
(notes) i redlined all the gears.
other racing notes: it was 57-62 degress at night and it was 57degrees on my final pass. i put ice in the intercooler spray reservoir and sprayed the intercooler all the way back to the parking area and some more as i was lining up to race, let the car cool for about 20-30 minutes b/f each pass atleast. oh yea and i launched at 5000 rpms on every pass.
im curious if i could of ran faster ### my last 3 passes i improved by .1 and all were 1.8 60fts. i think if i didnt miss 5th gear on my 6th pass i might of gotten a 13.2 or so. i wanted to leave on a good note so i didnt race after that. curious as to what u guys think for my first time at the track with the sti. ive raced on the track in the past it's just been about a year and a half on my old wrx.
you should be able to get that thing in the 12's with no prob, my 03 wrx i got to run 12.86 at 106 mph on my stock turbo with a 1.67 60ft, keep up the good work though man
hopefully im 12's with stage 2. how did u get so good of a 60 ft time. what rpms did u launch at?
i launch around 6800rpm, i have a Exedy clutch, with ACT street lite flywheel, i run Red Line Shock Proof gear oil and i have had no probs at all with my car, i have made over 125 passes this year i have all the time tickets, i have also be drag racing drag cars for 7 years i preload my car then go so i have never just dropped the clutch in it, trust me you wil get down to 1.7's or so in your 60 ft
and may i add i raced my friend's evo 8, 6 out of the 7 passes and not once did he beat me, every bad pass i made his was worse, lol he could only get a 13.8. STI > EVO, he had an intake BTW. WRXKIDD i know u will see this so what kinda times u running with ## evo? oh and if there are any other sti drivers that have ran stock or with just stage 2 what times are u guys running, curious to see how im driving that thing in comparison to the rest.
