KA-T.org / GroundZero Motorsports S14 goes 10.9 @ 134

Post by Rick » Sun Aug 07, 2005 8:10 pm

Hey everyone, just a quick update on my car. Got it back out to the track on saturday night and got it into the 10's. On a decent launch with slight tire spin it went 10.9 @ 134. However, the stock tranny just flat out wont hold up to this kind of power for very long. Timeslip and video are soon to follow!

Drag radials. 245 55 17's to be exact.

Still working on the 60ft's though.

Also, duy was using a 100 or 150shot of nitrous, where as I am not using any nitrous. I will have the record very soon. I am thinking I can get this setup down to around mid 10's.

Nice!!! So what's the plans for the tranny? Automatic?? :D

Just that alone would probably get you in the mid-10's...

I still have some room left in 4th gear. If I start maxxing out 4th I will probably goto a taller set of tires again.

The car in the left lane is a shop car, our Supra actually. It usually goes mid 9's in the high 140's, however we are working with a new TC. I rev my car to 7800ish and shift around 7400.

With out question a very big understatment, I wouldn't even want that much power in my car being only a street car. Thats just silly amounts of power! Congrats rick your getting some amazing results for being this early in the stages of your tune. And about the tranny, try getting a hold of Sorel's Racing Transmitions. There out of Michigan but the owner is a cuz to the body shop I work for he does a ton of work for top fuel drags and touring cars.
