    I might be going to PBIR track rental this Sunday. Haven't decided yet. Also depends if I get my new tires in by tomorrow. Front tires have some damage and aren't really safe to drive on currently.

    Got coil overs installed with springs setup slightly towards dragging, so hopefully it offers a little more traction at the strip.
    I'll see you in the desert next month. Be ready to have your ass handed to you

    I'm signed up to go to this rental, so post up if you're going to make it and I'll keep an eye out for you. Looks like we finally may have some good weather.

    I will be going. Hopefully I can wake up early enough to not get there late. Have about a 2.5 hour drive.

    Sounds good, bud. I'll keep an eye out for you. I have the Space Gray coupe. I'm going to try and get there early as the track prep and weather will likely be the best it will be for the day at that time.

    I keep coming back like a buster in hopes of seeing some 130+mph trap speeds.

    So track wasn't what I had hoped for. I had a couple issues (timing would zero out in 4th if I used NLS or if I shifted too quickly). Ran a little bit of race gas so I could hot lap (got there late, 1:30), but left the boost level at what I daily drive at ~23-24psi to get a feel of what it could do in the street setup.

    Bottom line:
    I ran 12.0x at 124.89 mph.

    Needless to say I was disappointed. I think a big factor in this is my gearing. 4th gear is just too long. At 125mph, 4th gear is under 6000rpm. I think I see a 3.46 rear end with LSD in the very near future.

    My drag radials are very, very bald so that made it tough to get out the hole. I have new ones coming in Thursday. I'm also going to get a dedicated wheel setup for the strip eventually.

    I'm not sure how others were running. My friend who has a 730whp 2013 GT500 was trapping around ~129mph. He was happy he finally broke 10s though.

    Last, my VBOX was reading usually 0.3s slower than my slip. On one of my 12.0x runs, it read 12.2. MPH was just about always 1mph faster (expected). I really think the timing blocks at PBIR are not setup correctly. My 60' times seem a lot better than how they feel from experience...and I have done probably 400 passes in this car. I datalogged all my runs, I'll post up some of those as well as the slips. I wrote the VBOX time and mph on each slip as well so I wouldn't forget the discrepancy. Unfortunately, I couldn't confirm with someone else who had a VBOX if there's was showing the same discrepancies as mine. Maybe my VBOX could be wrong? I don't know, but if I had to guess I'd say it wasn't and that PBIR has inflated times (or deflated? cause they are lower?).

    Thanks for the update. Disappointing track days always suck. Drag racing this car is difficult on its own super difficult with 6MT.

    Your friend needs new tires or a driver mod, especially if that's just ~5 MPH over stock with an additional ~150 WHP

    He just put a meatier drag radial on it, but probably needs to go to a smaller rim. He has a lot of drag experience in many, many different and very, very fast cars. UG Twin Turbo Gallardo, Dodge Viper with twin 78mm turbos to name a couple.

    It's REALLY odd because majority of the ST N54's are in CA, which has sun year round & it should be the best track weather right now (low ambiant temps). Def hoping winter passes quickly & we get cool 50s in March so I can hit the track & see where my ProTune's got me.

    Yeah. Unfortunately, the weather wasn't so great and it was a lot hotter than I thought it was going to be at this time of the year. Best weather conditions were in the morning and were long gone by the time you got there.

    Anyway, I know you're frustrated and, quite frankly, who wouldn't be? Hope you're able to get everything straightened out with the car so you can finally start enjoying it, bud.

    You got flat line? Maybe Terry can help you out. I know he was waiting to tune an ST. Not sure if he has it done yet.
