I have taken out some stuff I don't need. AC, radio, bumper beam, spare tire, etc. Weighs 3200lbs with me in it and a 1/4 tank of gas.

I doubt they'll be up tonight. Nights are busy...

I have made many passes.....



A few more 11.4's @ 122. Unfortunately none better than that though

Happy to say the car is still in one piece at this point! I hope it stays that way....

Event: 1/4 Mile at MAPerformance Proving Grounds 2014.1
Location: MN
Ambient Temp: 60-85F
Elevation: ~1200ft
Weather: Sunny and Clear
Tires: 235/45R17 Federal 595 RS-R Tires on Stock 2011 WRX Wheels

Car: 2002 WRX Sedan
Tuner: Nuke @ NF Performance
Transmission: 2012 STI 6 Speed
1/4 Mile ET: 11.42s
1/4 Mile Trap: 122.7mph
60': 1.88s
Target Boost: 26psi
Target AFR: 11's
Fuel: E85

11.42s @ 122.7mph with 1.88s 60'






The car ran great up at BIR. It did an 11.5 the first run on Friday. I did one other 11.5, but I battled with IC pipes popping off and the VSS/LC not working correctly. On Saturday it was trapping a little higher (in the 122's) and it did several 11.4's. I had trouble getting any decent 60' times or I think it could have gone a bit lower.

Overall did about 20 passes over Friday and Saturday. I was launching at 6k and did an 8k launch (can be seen in the video) when the VSS/LC was acting up. From what I could tell I had some of the lowest times in the SA (stock appearing) class. On Sunday I went to do a test run and snapped my rear driver's axle on the first pass.

I had brought to spare rear axles, but I had already given one to someone else who broke an axle, so I only had one left. I swapped it but decided not to run anymore because I had to drive it 2 hours back home. Overall I had a great time and the car was a blast! I think it felt great for how it was set up and I was happy with the power it was making.

Yes, it was the rear driver's side. Made about 20 passes! Almost all were 6k launches. I think I had one that I launched at 8k when LC wasn't working! I posted a speedo vid. Video from outside of the car coming soon.

Yep, pretty much the cheapest driveline item that can break.

I would rather have the axle be the weak link than it breaking farther up the line. Axles are the cheap fix option! Great passes.

Yep, for under $20 or so they are a great "fuse" in the driveline. Kind of a pain to replace, but not really that bad. Took about an hour I think.
