Lethal Performance 2010 Shelby GT500 10.09@140mph
We had a fun time at the track last night. Although we didn't do as well as we were hoping to we got a lot accomplished with the car and in reality did quite well. Just so there's no misunderstanding the car was making 21psi and was run on C16. No methanol was used. We dialed in the suspension a little better and was able to cut a 1.47 60ft on one of the runs. We also noticed that our stock diff is shot as we were only spinning one tire as we left the burnout box. So we'll be taking care of that this week. We also datalogged the car and Jon went over the logs with me this morning. The car was pulling 4 deg's of timing. So on our 10.09 run as we went through the traps we were only seeing 17deg of timing. He's not exactly sure why but we'll be looking into it this week. We didn't log IAT2's last night as Chris's computer was having issues logging a few parameters on our car. IAT2 being one of them. The other thing that was working against us was the weather. It was humid, muggy and we're still in the 70's. We kept scratching our heads trying to figure why we were going 2-3mph slower in the 1/8th than our last time at the track when we went 112+mph through the 1/8th. Between the crappy air the car pulling timing at least we know what was going on with the car. With that said we're going to keep on making adjustments, tweak the suspension and get the issues straightened out with why the car is pulling timing. As Derek mentioned above I believe we're going to put in a spool. To this date the car has seen 3 full passes. For us to being doing what we are especially with the weather and with the car pulling timing we're doing great. It's easy for someone to say that we should easily being running a certain time because of the power we're making but there's a lot more to it than that. It's easy to strap a car to a Dyno and make a number but taking that power and making it work for you at the track is completely different. Ask guys like Andy, Tony, Chris or any other person who runs fast times how many runs it took them to dial the car in. We can't expect to build a car, take it to the track for the first time and run the car to it's fullest potential. That's not how it works. We know that with how the car sits if we get the small issues ironed out and see some cool air we should see 9.60-9.70's. For now it's back to work and we'll be out at the track again soon. Jared
