Default TopSpeed continues its winning streak: Dominating the "NC/SC DSM/SUBY SHOOTOUT"

November 15th, 2009


It all started with an early road trip leaving at 5am Sunday morning. Cicio and I loaded up in the TopSpeed GT2 and headed east. With a fresh cup of coffee our destination was Fayetteville Motorsports Park for the NC/SC DSM/EVO/SUBY Shootout.

We had set in plan three Goals for this days event.

1. Baseline our new Shop GT2 at the drag strip
2. Data log and tweak the tune on the 2g Eclipse to finally break into the 8's
3. Dominate and win the entire event.

The road trip there went off without one issue... except for the unexpected Z06 that we ran into on the way. Arriving at the track we found a long line of cars waiting to get in, and weather that was picture perfect. After a brief unpack... and by brief I mean the two back packs that will fit in the GT2 we went for a quick walk around the pits to check out the competition.

Some big names were there in Attendance so we knew the competition was going to fierce.







With our guns loaded we decided it was time to work on our goals for the day.

First up was to establish a baseline for TopSpeed's new GT2 Porsche. We made three passes, with each one getting faster and faster as we dialed in the tire pressure and launch.

Best pass of the day for the TopSpeed GT2 breaks down like this:

60ft -- 1.800
330ft -- 5.127
1/8et -- 7.790
1/8mph -- 93.42mph
1/4et -- 11.887
1/4mph -- 120.02mph

With the TopSpeed GT2 baseline out of the way I buckled down an got to work on getting Mike's Eclipse down the track. Mike made 3 passes of the day with the final pass being an 8.86 @ 165mph. This pass however was not without its own beautifull story... as mid way through 4th gear he boost went a bit to high and hit the boost cut that was set. Pulling the data log from the 8.86 run shows that boost had fell off in 4th for about .5 seconds meaning this pass would have been mid 8's and almost 170mph.

With time running out we decided it would be best if we just packed it up and shoot for low 8's another day, since we had already secured the overall win and Mikes 8's pass. Thus killing two birds with one stone.

Here is the video from Mike's 8.86 @ 165mph run.. TopSpeed Tuned FTW!!

Enjoy

Congrats, thats a great time and i would love to see a pass without the boost falling off. What size turbo and do you have a dyno plot of the car?


What is done to the GT2, it is a nice car but the 996 just doesnt do it for me. 993 or 997 FTMFW!

And dont get me wrong, i still really like the 996 GT2 and would abuse the crap out of one any day of the week but the headlights just bother me.

The GT2 is bone stock, we just wanted to get a baseline before we start developing/modding it.


1.80 sixty on 305/30/19 PS2's

Nice, i am sure that thing will turn into a rocket. I am all for butchering up a 996 and turning into a full blown race car but a 993 would be sacrilegious... lol

His best pass was high 10's I think 10.7 if I remember right. He was having problems hooking, and with some tuning. Crazy car though
