Tim, which wide band are you running so I can set up PL, and how tall are your tires so I can figure the speeds (I assume you have not changed the speedo gears)...thanks

A lot of broken parts does not make you a racer; it makes you a slow learner.

The mph is kinda strange.  It's only a couple percent off and it should be closer to 8%.  It reads like my car did with 28 inch tires and a 27 tooth speedometer gear instead of the stock 30 tooth gear.


The short time is slower than I would expect, but, it may simply be the track prep.  I don't know how sticky the track is and that makes all the difference.  Looks like the tires are breaking loose a little right after launch according to my look at the mph/rpm curve bump.


The top end mph is probably about right because you are not running very high boost and the car looks rich to me.  If it were me and I was looking for more performance, it would set it to 27 psi for a look.  The boost control is still a bit wonky at launch for some reason.  Kinda wonder if that comes from a bit of wheel spin that drops the load on the engine a little for a short time.


Given the above, I don't think I see anything really wrong with the run, or the car.  It's probably running about right for the boost level.


Not knowing anything about  your local area, is the humidity high?

one thing I just noticed (if I calculated right) zero slip in the drivetrain should have given you about 131 mph...  or about 11% slip.  I guess that is not that bad after thinking about it.  Probably cost a lot to get much less.  :cheers:

Thanks for your kind words
Speedometer is close 255 -60 tires and the radar speed limit sign is 1 or 2 mph off think I have a 27 tooth. Its a Turbo smart controller I can probably tune that spike out , might go away if i turn it up to 27.
Yes that pass wideband correction is 10.8 last pass 11.0 slip looked the same just 1 mph slower at1/4 and 1/2 mph at 1/8 mile
Hawaii is humid 60% today I think it was over 50 on Saturday track is close to sea level temperatures 85 88 max.

humidity never helps as it takes up some of the room that air molecules could be occupying but that is not too bad.  Long ago, you said Lonnie or someone said bump up the stall and that would help because it would probably like leaving at more boost and rpm, but, I would practice driving and being consistent since you are not contesting anyone in particular.  Enjoy the car for awhile  :cheers:
