Default First time 1/4" mile pass. 98 Forester [email protected]

If all goes well, Saturday 11/5 should be first pass with the Forester. Nervous as **** though since im on my 280k mile stock 5mt after breaking 2nd and 3rd gears in my other one. I just want to get a number on it. I'm feeling the 11/12 second border but havent ever really launched it and its gonna be all in the launch.

Any tips? plans to go fuel cut 4500 and slip it out slow as i can without welding the feramic to the flywheel. 1st is gonna run out fast so making a timely shift to second is the next hurdle, besides keeping the teeth attached

update:

did the race, best time was 12.09 at 114. added boost, went for 11's and the clutch had other plans

My advice would be not to go out with the expectation of running a great ET. I assume it's your first time drag racing since you are asking for advice. I would launch about 1000-1500rpm above peak torque/boost, slip the clutch (don't dump it) and be ready for that 2nd gear shift. Once you have a trap speed you can better gauge the ET the car is capable of. What kind of tires do you have?

worn out falken 245/40/18's. I actually wanted to get a little wheel spin off the line. On the street anyway, when i get a line spin, it spools it up quicker and takes off when it hooks up.

Launching on the street and launching at the track are totally different. Best of luck with your trans!

Great advise for a starting point ^^^


I personally start with a run with out a true "launch" and go from there after seeing the trap and focusing on the shifts. Plus depending on how your clutch is mine always liked a little heat in it before a hard quick slip style launch.

Also If you really got that pig down to 2800lbs GREAT job!!!

So no "launch" first run. I'll try that. I should proabaly do another wot log anyway. Its not very often i get to wind out 4th gear. Which i suspect will be wound out to like 7k saturday. I think 4th goes to around 120 in my car by 7k

cockpit



under hood



interior before dash gutting



last 5mt lol, i drove it home like that. 1st and 4th. wouldnt have been as bad but the 4th gear synchro was shot too and would only let me in around 2k rpm

Yes a little wheel spin is good but excessive will add time to your 60ft. If you get excessive wheel spin I would drop the tire pressure a bit. If you start getting wheel hop you need to put a little pressure back in and try to find the happy median. Wheel hop = bad- things will break (been there, done that, got the t-shirt )

Better snag a box for it if you don't already have one. I had mine in the trunk strapped down and they made me put it in a box sense I didn't have a true firewall between me and the battery. Not sure your local rules I just know I had that issue once.

considered a box but i thought it was only needed for vented batteries. We'll see what happens, If all goes well, next year i need to come back with a roll bar too

Not sure the specifics of the rule, just know they gave me a hard time and its not a vented battery. Just figured I would give you a heads up as to my experience.

Haha, yeah color looks good! I will have to buy a can and check it out. I'm currently rockin a gold manifold and alternator, but the paint I used was discontinued by Duplicolor, so I've been looking for an alternative.

This is an older setup, but shows the manifold and alternator

Making it home without calling AAA made it a good day.

Leaving 11s on the table because of an under rated clutch makes me a sad banana
