I've never used the virtual dyno. Are uou using the right gear in the calculations? The datalog shows a 3-4-5 run, not a 2-3-4 run.

That said, it does appear that a 6MT is a bit better suited for 60-130runs than the 6AT since it only needs to do one shift to hit 130mph while still being in the powerband. And with a 6MT+upgraded turbo you will be making good power all the way to redline AND require 1 less shift AND get a torque multiplying gearing advantage towards the end of the run (4th vs 5th gear). That said, I'd be curious to compare this run to Dzenno's from 60 to ~120mph (ie, just before sikh335 upshifts into 5th).

That aside, i think there this car is capable of high 8s with a bit more prep. Maybe some basic weight reduction and lighter wheels/tires would do the trick. Would even be worth going down to (or maybe under) sea level. I don't think the slight altitude here is having too much of an effect. But at this point, every hundredth of a second counts I suppose


ps. sihk335 is running the 10-18 Stg 3 Aggressive v5 maps at the default settings. Same map that I emailed out to you and several others earlier this week. I've been getting a lot of datalogs emailed to me from beta testers. I'll try to post a bunch up later today. Looks like they are working well across the board.
