Actual times! Yay

Alright! I can contribute something besides benchtop racing even if it is underwhelming. (I need to work on my 60ft and launch settings big time) I was scared to break stuff mostly with how much reconstructive surgery I did on my trans...

Went out a bought a Dragy finally and got it setup. Initial impressions first day was wtf as it was dropping in and out every couple seconds. Could barely get a 0-60 pass in much less a 1/4 mi. This was attempted out in the flattest of Indiana corn fields with no trees or funky weather so idk what was going on with signal. Maybe the satellites were in a not-so-great position or something. I almost boxed it right back up but decided Id try again the next day in a different location.

Said results:





LOL, just kidding. First run was my 265,000 mile daily-driver. Shes still got the moves


and lastly...



This was with a roll-out take off and not a launch. I think I mightve let out a little early too and think it can trap higher. Tried a launch promptly after but settings were all wonky and it bogged or blew the front tires off. Need a better timing ramp and manual control of my C4 diff locks and 11s will be cake, esp on a prepped surface and not a dusty country road; I mean Mexico

I have thought about the 996TT, even with the prices a lil higher I think it is one of the best cars you can buy for the money.

But I honestly love the SC, do I wish it was a fire breathing monster sure, but I love so much about it. The 996TT is fast, but I like very little else about it.... the front end, the interior, the appliance nature of its performance delivery... Amazing car, just lacks the charm of the ol SC.

Also, I just kinda want a nasty V8 next to the Porsche. I think my SC with a 10.5:1 big cam rebuild would be a fun lil ride.

Geronimo, you are starting to suck, biggly, bro! It's about time for me to re-post my motivational masterpiece, I see!

Well, in the interest of keeping my driveline together and making repeatable launches, I'm thinking I'm going to place an order for a launch control valve/slipper valve. Already have an ECU that can put out a signal when launch is active and then when it's not, clutch slipper valve is open and regular snappy clutch action resumes.

https://www.maperformance.com/products/map-hydraulic-launch-control-device-for-manual-transmission-vehicles?variant=5331062275&gclid=CjwKCAjw5fzrBRASEiwAD2OSVxc8VAgFh4dLAne0TR7m vjYpJHyI_33bX6U8aOnnxOm8ks1FSH3_GBoCnF4QAvD_BwE

After that, the next bit is adding 2 very small, single circuit, master brake cylinders with adjusters within reach just like the 964 C4 lightweight so I can adjust center and rear diff clutch-pack preload. Factory ABS/4wd module is toasty toast Hence the front tire roasting on launches. The 993 viscous 90/10 torque split is much better than the 964 planetary 31/69. Too much front bias for the amount of weight transfer going on.

The dragy's are addicting. At first I wondered how the magazines got such good times, even comparing to the factory's times. Then I found out that they use a 1 ft rollout.

On another note, the girl and I took the 996 GT2 on a 220 mile drive over the weekend to Laguna Seca. She was PISSED that I was trying to hypermile like an old man in a Prius! I did get the mileage up to almost 21mpg though. Then it got the better of me and I returned to my wicked ways in the last 50 miles.

LOL Rawks,

I was wondering how long before you popped in to punch me.

I get it, but chasing power in a Porsche has a pain multiplier of X3 lol

As my so-cal raised gf says, "We took THE 680 to THE 101, then took THE 68 to the track."
