Ended up having enough power to run 12s but not enough clutch even with the restrictor removed. After I started trying to get more aggressive it got hot and stopped releasing right and I started missing 2nd and I was done. Best of 13.1@106.6. Very happy with the mph for all stock hardware.

That's still good for your setup.

I ran 12.88@109.99 (so close to 110mph). Guess 110mph will have to wait till next year. That was with a 2.03 60', on Cobb Race Gas map, and right at 100 octane. I am happy with the time, though I thought I would be faster since on the stage2+aggressive on a hot day I pulled a 109.7mph.

I think your car didn't fully adjust to the race map. I almost think you need to change the map, drive down 470 for a couple miles and come back. When you think about it, you only really drove a couple miles at most after switching the map. When I switched from sport to aggressive and gained 4-5mph, I did the 470 drive...

Carl, nice meeting you and nice car (i'm jelous of the white). Sounds like time for a clutch and go for 12's.

It's mutual, but I will miss the mile high city... Easy trip to come back from time to time tho.

Woohoo, 12's baby! You need drag radials homeboy. You get those and you'll be top dog no doubt with those trap speeds! You get that 60' down even .1 or .2 and you'll knock off a good .2 to .4 off your overall ET.

Yeah, what I need to do is find a good station that has race gas and fill up the day before so I can get it fully adjusted and make sure my logs look good...then if I need to add some more octane, I can always pick up a couple gallons at Bandimere. Just the logistics to do it just for 5 runs at a TNT night are a hassle.

Nice meeting you (and the rest of you), too. I would have liked to run 12s on all stock hardware, but I'm not going to wait until spring to put my Helix on. So next year it will be with a clutch and an FMIC and with the DCI back on and I'll be looking for mid-12s at 110.

If you want to fool with ATR let me know. I have no interest in going into the tuning business but I'm happy to look at someone's logs and suggest map changes or even tweak a map for them if they are on I8AOS.

That's what makes running an E85 mix all the time during race season nice. You don't have to do much extra prep when you go to the track.

Very true, and E85 is a lot easier to come by....I am still hesitant though, mainly because this is a car I plan to keep for 100k+miles.

I plan to keep mine for a very long time. I put over 250k on my last car. At least 50k of that was on E85 mixes and it was a much older fuel system. I'm not worried about it. The only thing to watch for is fuel pressure dropping. Over the years you will probably have to replace fuel filters and fuel pump pickup "socks" (if we have one) more often that you would otherwise need to. As in "maybe once instead of ignoring it for the entire life of the car". The symptom in both cases is fuel pressure falling off when it shouldn't.
