Drag Results

I had another run at Willowbank Raceway last night. Once again, I came up short of breaking into the 10s. A 11.048s @ 127.97mph. A better 60' time would have got me there.

I will work on a few things over summer so hopefully, I can get a 10s run next winter. It is frustrating when you get 11.03s, 11.04s and 11.05s runs but just can't get that 1/2 a tenth quicker.

It would go better than did before at Roll racing. I may do that again sometime in the future. I want to fix up the outlets first so that I can adjust the steering wheel up higher. Also, I think there may be an issue with cylinder 5 that I need to assess.

Yes, they are Shane but I would love them to be consistently 1/2 a tenth less than 11s. It will happen one day I hope. How are your aluminium outlets going. That is my next project. I want to get my steering wheel up so I can raise my seat again and install a standard coolant expansion tank again. My modified tank is still going ok without any issues as yet but I am still concerned it may start to leak someday.

damn slow ken

popped into the shop the other day, this is a pic of the two piece outlet which mounts to the fmic.

Obviously you'd be best to get a set from n54transfr (?) in WA, since mine have been fabbed up to suit vtt GC series turbos which are clocked differently

Not yet Duck. It would cost more than the car is worth to install a sequential box.

Your outlets are getting there. I have removed my RB outlets today and will start looking at designing and fabricating an aluminium set. Easier said than done.

Why not buy a set from the guy in WA Ken? Do you think the RB outlets are a restriction?

I seen on facebook today there's a product out called a launchbox, some sort of two step launch control to help lower 60ft times. Unsure if it will be of use, or if indeed it lowers your 60ft/ET's etc but...

I have a spare one of those, called WOT box.

RB outlets not a restriction, just foul the 1m/m3 steering column. I can make you some outlets if you need ken, currently have a complete engine or two on the ground here so would be simple enough.

As Duck said the RB silicone outlets don't cause any restriction but the rear outlets fouling of the steering shaft prevents the steering wheel from being raised to a suitable position for me and the fouling of the coolant expansion tank really annoys me. The WA aluminium outlets wouldn't connect to the RB Evo turbos and there is no detail on the pipe diameters as yet.
