Correct on both accounts

Rouge, I ran 42psi continental touring tires, my street shoes basically at IDD and cut a 2.12. At Lapeer i tried out some DR'* and got nowhere and lost MPH/ET. I'll be running my street tires again the next time out. The weight transfer is hard to deal with when launching, I'm going to pump up the backend next time out.

There is still something about these cars that isn't known because the powerplant in badssei is CRAZY powerful and is finally getting at it'* potential, but I know Scott ran 15.9 stock.

The car is ready for the PCM, I have a line on the case learn and I am currently reading up on the Security learn procedure.

I'll never be good at launching this car nor do I ever expect sub 2.0 sixties on my stock rubber, so I plan to just toss brute force at it I'll make up for it the rest of the 1260ft.

BadSSEi'* secret other than slicks is the wheelie bars. It moves the center of gravity of the car back so the weight transfer is not as fierce. The powerplant in that car would push a gp deep into the 10'* probably close to the turbo car. In fact after this year that may be just what happens as Scott is thinking of demodding and seeling it since he has the GXP.

Rogue, baby, Rogue

The more horsepower, the harder it is to launch, trust me on this one. The PCM itself is going to make it rough due to the added timing and fueling. Slicks are probably going to be a must to get the car mid-13s.

Someone here needs to pickup that blower....

Demod? That car is ALL MOD. I guess his GXP won't be a daily driver..

Those wheelie bars keep the weight transfer down the most, by not letting the car lift like normal.

The powerplant will go into a GP more than likely with a stock L67 going back into the SSEi.

It'll will be a sad, sad day when that happens, I bet that enging in a GP will defintily be in the 10'*. So todd working on any bolt on wheel bars for the track? If they were stealthy I'd give them a try.

Aren't the tradeoffs of running slicks more abuse on the tranny?

I tell you guys what: I've got the PCM for the 1998 SE with the 2.89 gears..... I love the Intense PCM to death! I put the car back on stock 15 inch rims with P/215R15-65'* yesterday and that thing floats fast as hell! It'* even faster than it was on the custom 17'* with P215R17-50'*. Chirping the tires has been a joy. At first I didn't realize it was me chirping the tires. Boy this thing is fun so far!

Yep smaller tires = less rotating mass and less contact on the road so quicker acceleration but harder to hook up.
