15 auto VT back to running normal again. This is the daily driving tune in it now that does 240+ whp without the water/meth injection on.

Street car takeover is this Saturday with forecasted ambient 48-68°F. Pulling out the drag radials and skinnies to mount on the car to break them in to get ready for that event. Then end of October will be import Face-Off.

I feel a 12 second pass coming in October that'll set quite a few records..... :)

Well folks, I officially have a 12 second VT in the 1/4 mile on stock turbo, stock intercooler, stock engine. I'll wait to post slips until after this second pass I make in cool air here in a bit. :)

Well second pass last night in cool air on the same mild DD tune did not go well. Track went away and would not hold a hard launch. Also had fuel cut from possibly having an oem fuel pump in the car. On a sending unit from the 13 VT just to get the car running again.

Here are pictures of the car and time slip for the one pass I did get in. Easy launch and some fuel cut on this pass but not bad.

This is the automatic VT you're running at the strip?
Just curious as I'm in the process of running mine at either the eighth mile or 1320 next time I'm home. 🤞
I was going to go 12 days ago but it rained 4 out of 6 days I was home so it didnt work with my plans to run the car. 😞🤦‍♂️
Btw it'll be my first time at the strip with a manual transmission so....... 😳😜
Nice times for sure. 🤟

How hard are you launching? Any concern about breaking any driveline bits?

The 12.989 pass I was -.6 psi which was an easy launch. The pass I tried to make later was on 3.5 psi and it spun. I can launch it harder if the brakes will hold it. No worries on the driveline here. If I had a manual car launching on 2 step with a sticky tire then yes I'd be concerned
