Unfortunately I'm done drag racing until I get a new clutch. Clutch refused to hook up off the line at 5000rpm and full throttle last time.

85 at DIA, so I'm thinking mid 70s around 6pm in Morrison. I'm 98% sure I'll be there.

DA should be good today, probably below 8000' by 7pm (sad that <8000'DA is good, lol)

Acid did 13.1@104mph with tune and intake. Nice job man! One of us will hit 12's with tune only, I'm convinced.

Cool. I'm going to hit the dyno in a couple of weeks and go back to the stock intake while I'm on the dyno (I think the clutch will be fine for the dyno). If I don't lose much going back to the stock intake I'll try running it next year with a new clutch and nothing but a tune and E85.

Thanks! 13.196 @ 104.5 with a 1.808 60ft. I'm VERY impressed! I was gonna be happy with 13.6ish with just the tune and intake, but blew that out of the water.

On one run, i got to run the guy in the matte white e92 coupe, and was ahead until the 1000' mark where he was 11.259 and I was 11.269. The car stuttered on the 3-4 manual shift on my 6AT. He ended up at 13.398 @ 105.5 vs. my 13.506 @ 101.57.

I noticed it stutter just after the shift if I upshifted before 6K. I'll ping Terry and see what he says. Maybe there is a setting on the JB4 that could prevent it. He'd probably like a log. Time to go find some empty pavement and try to reproduce when I fill up on e85 again.

Wow, that's a great time, good job! 1.808 60ft is some good launching. DA was still like 8300ft it looks like at 7pm, so later this year with even cooler conditions one of you XI guys on E85 will probably be able hit the 12s.

I will be back out there at least once before the end of the season.

Nice times, I'm jealous! That was a fun run though for sure.

Aside from trying to launch on crap tires (best 60' was 2.0~), I was having fuel/boost problems. Still testing the Cobb E30 (e85 blend) maps. I peaked 13.4psi on my 13.3 run, and could feel the car coming in and out of boost.

Hoping to get it squared away before winter. I'm getting close to pulling the trigger on RB or Big Single...

~2.0 60' is probably about as good as it gets on non DR tires at Bandimere with RWD.

I peak about 17psi and quickly taper to 12psi on Cobb stage 2+FMIC...13.4psi is very low.

Yeah it is odd. I peak at 17-18 on stage 1 sport map, similar on aggressive.

I have some kinks to work out. Wasn't there someone running 100% e85? I'm not a big fan of mixing, but the car is a beast on the e30% map.

I ran 100% for a couple of tanks. Now I've run 50/50 again for a couple of tanks since the OTS E30 map came out.

E30 map? Which tune is this? I really need to do my homework about this e85. It sounds like a lot of people are making serious power with the e85. I'm kind of skeptical running e85 or mixed with my current procede map...suggestions?

Download the E30 map from the Cobb race section, put about 5 gallons of E85 in and top off with 91, load the map and drive. It will be educational.

I got the race gas map uploaded onto the Cobb AP, now just need to find some time to get some in and do some logging to make sure everything is kosher.

Oh also have the v401/v402 maps in now (stage 2+FMIC), they are very smoooooth.
