After running the 11.90 on a much less than optimal pass on Tuesday, I had to get back to the track in some cooler (80 degree) weather to see what she could really do.
Short and sweet, I drove the hell out of the car. No complaints at all, the LC and No Lift were dialed in perfectly, and the car took all the abuse while asking for more.
I'm really happy, I've been trying to do this for years, in and out of other various turbo setups. I always felt while not fast, the stock turbo was the most fun in competition.
Just to assure everyone, with my 255lb self in the car, it weighs in right around 3075, 25lbs lighter than the last record holding STi with driver.
Next week I may try for low 11's on a 68, or high 10's on a green. My gut tells me to be easy with it until the fall where I can break out some 11.30's @ 119, but Im once again addicted to the tree
Thanks to everyone who has been a part of this project in the last few weeks
Junior offered me his Hoosiers for tuesday night, and Wiznaz and myself have a few more ideas just to inch into the 11.49 area. Not sure what Im going to do yet...
But I am sure there's more to come
