**** Sorry if I am a bit excited, it'* been a lot of work without putting a lot of money in the car.. it'* not perfect yet but it isn't easy to get these tubs into the 13'*, so I am quite thrilled.. anyway...*****
**** I discuss a POTENTIAL problem about my pcm in here, I removed it from the subject as if it is NOT the pcm, I don't wish to cost INTENSE any sales.****
Well I set out to run a 13.... results below:
Went to Milan Dragway in Michigan today. 65 degrees, 71% humidity, 30 baro, 10mph headwind.
I only got to take three runs today, but I'm overall happy with the results CONSIDERING *I will explain below*
Track prep included simply removing the crap from my car, cloths, clubs, and the spare. Seats, and everything else still in the car, no load leveler adjustments made, headlight still in, etc.
Run numbah 1:
35psi in the fronts.
60ft - 2.129
330 - 5.87
1/8et - 8.976
1/8mph - 79.05
1000' - 11.637
1/4et - 13.877
1/4mph - 99.75
Run numbah 2:
33psi in fronts.
BLEW THE LAUNCH just before the 60' was done
She was haulin after I finally got some grip!
Run numbah 3:
60' - 2.172
1/8et - 9.017
1/8mph - 79.63
1/4et - 13.885
1/4mph - 100.66
A solid #3 spot overall.
Stock tires, rims, breaks were used.
Now for the CONSIDERING
There is a BIG problem with the INTENSE PCM'* for these cars. Reports have come out of hitting a 'wall' at the top of two, I never hit it before until today. I was hitting 102mph BEFORE the last set of timing lights!!!!
. At 102 it was like having the car in gear but totally letting off the gas, the car would nose dive down and slow down to 98mph then wake up and pull again at full speed. It never shifted into third WOT, I couldn't get it to. So basically, I hit 102mph, drop to 98, accelerate and finish at the listed traps above. I am not one to make excuses so I am not, my times are my times and I am happy. However, this slowdown happend a good distance before the finish, easily costing me some hundreths if not tenths, and for sure some trap speed. I'm going to contact Scott as this is not too cool.
It isn't valve float, I know what that is like and I would have it in first gear too. Something is funky with these pcm'*. I don't know if Rogue had the same issue or not.
So anyway, there ya have it.. I had fun, I'm happily in a solid third on a 3.25 and have some room for improvement on the current setup with some PCM work, then it'* on to the 3.0
Anyway, thanks for listening, take it easy.
