    Default Went to the track

    I took my 83 out to the track tonight in hopes of getting some better times. I left it just like it was last time i went that it ran the 14.3 other than a fresh tuneup. Everything was the same, and still on green top injectors and i have not touched the boost valve. It was screamin hot out and really humid. I put the Hoosiers at 18psi launched around 5K and it went a 14.08@93.81mph with a 1.86 60'. That was the best of three passes and was backed up by an 14.1.It was shifting it at 5200rpms. I was happy with what it did, I am just really pushing for the 13.99 second slip now If only the weather was nice I may need updated on the list too
    Stay tuned!!

    ...I am having issues with my scan of the slip. i will mess around with that tomorrow...

    Yeah, I'm there every week for points. Broke the shaft on another T3turbo. Car launched good, just about the 330 mark it sputtered a little, then I got rid of every mosquito for about a square mile as I smoked the place out. Ate a wheel and my compressor housing. Someone here got a picture of it in my pit (sorry, didnt catch your user name on here, but it was nice meeting you and your Dad!).

    Moved my number over to my truck, only got one time trial with it, ended up breaking out by .01 on the brakes at the stripe. That was a perfect ending to a misreable day for me.

    it was sweet meeting you both there! Im home from pa, and i have a pic of the turbo ill get up later. That capri was sweet till you got to the end and all we saw was SMOKE.
    Frank did awesome, and thanks for the tips we can use on my dads car. Loved your car, and it makes me want a four eye turbo coupe so much more!
