1st track outing for wicked boss

1 1

1st time at track in about 10 years. 1st run, asleep at light, and missed second


2nd run, still trying to get reaction time down, launched at @ 1800 rpm, small spin off the line, hit 2nd gear and bad wheel hop so i peddled and light wheel hop.



let car cool off and went for 3rd, same launch but hooked a little better wheel hop again on 2nd gear 3rd spun but no hop, crossed in 4th and it crossed with the car moving around some but not to bad.

last run, tried to launch at @ 2000 RPM and spun bad out the hole. but mph is good.

all runs where set with the front shocks set at 2 and the rear set at 4.

LCA's and an upper will help with the wheel hop. Time, practice and better tires than the stock Pirelli's will improve your ET's.

Good start though, saw a 12.66 and a 12.77 in there. Nothing wrong with that.

thanks, i do have the some bmr rear lowers, upper with mount, adj panhard, control arm relocation brackets ready to install, i wanted a base line before i put the upgrades in.

then after install plan to run it again before i put some drag radials on. trying to see what is the best time i can get on stock tires.

Save the dawn for your dishes!!!
pretty decent times for being stock. I just put on my steeda UCA and bracket a few days ago. it finally got rid of the wheel hop. I also have BBR billet LCAs.

Your third run was awesome! Looks like you were starting to get back into your groove after a few years.

thanks, rt was better on 4th but i tried to bump up launch rpm but it spun to much.

hope to have better times with new suspension and after that i plan on a one piece ds and drag radials.
