Default 1st track times from my 98 SSEI with light mods

It took me awhile to get around to posting this but it is the first time I raced my car since I have owned it, and my first opportunity to get the feel of an L67 powered ride at the track, This was at the Michigan Grudge match back on Oct 18th.

I was using a new set of mickey thompson sportsman pro'* that probably hurt me because the have not been used and only 3 runs on them they need to be "broken in"
These runs were with 1/2 tank of gas and just the spare and jack pulled, and headlight out. Also a splash of race gas mixed in, which I did not need, because I have no KR, but I figured it would not hurt.

1st run:

R/T .791
60 2.528
330 6.587
1/8 9.864
MPH 75.78
1000 12.646
1/4 15.011
MPH 95.89

2nd run

R/T .579
60 2.327
330 6.216
1/8 9.449
MPH 76.66
1000 12.209
1/4 14.568
MPH 94.93


3rd Run

R/T .600
60 2.102
330 5.986
1/8 9.221
MPH 76.56
1000 11.990
1/4 14.356
MPH 94.61

Since then I have added a Thrasher modular pulley system, With more than three runs, and some more time to work on my launches a high 13 was possible, every one of those runs I spun, so I actually think for next time I will leave my Potenza 950 street tires on and see what it does, I also have the 3.25 pulley to slap on and with race gas in it I should be golden at the track. I am actually building another motor for the quick times to come, it will have a nice cam and intercooler, 12'* of any sort are the final goal for next year.

great times!!!!!!!!!!
it got faster as you went due to the fact that your pcm was learning just how much timing it can give it. you may have been close to a 13 sec run with 1 or 2 more passes.
what fuel did you use?

Does anyone currently on the board run 12'*? I did not even think this an attainable time for the bonnie.

Scott Cook has run them in his turbo'ed engine. It'* pretty easy in GTP'*, but there seem to be more GTP'* with deep pockets, or a need to race. An SSEi in 12'* is no challenge. Gimme an MP112, intercooler, full intense tranny, and all the parts i want and i'll get ya in the 11'*....

Great times.
I was surprised at first with the big variation between runs but can see most of it was caused by traction....check the 60' times.
A limited slip differential will be needed to improve consistency.
