Nice job, Rob! Looks like Z-Max may be a regular deal for our area. I may even have to try it someday.....

Hmmm I have to learn to drive. I just went to Cayuga "Motorsport Park" in Ontario to see what my latest mods would do.
R/T ?
60' 2.334
1/4 : 14.072
mph : 100.92
tire pressure stock 32lbs
outside temp 35 degrees centigrade (about 86 farenheight?)
(will look for the slip for all info.
Mods BBK UDP, 91 Octane Tune from DaSilva HR Cams
Dyno 301.5 rwhp 309.1 rwtq

I really thought I would get in the 13's I am working on my power shifting not as easy as I thought it would be 1-2 seems to be tougher for me than 2-3. Would lowering my tire pressure help? I do realize the heat/humidity didn't help either major power drain there. I have been told Cayuga is not the best prepped track either. There is a track in London Ontario that is prepped much better will wait for cooler weather and update. Any tips for me? I hit the track once maybe twice a year so I know that more time at the track will help. Still shooting for 13's.

As Chris said, your 60' is keeping you from the 13's. On stock tires you should be able to get your 60' time in the 2.05-2.15 second range with a little practice. My best 60' time (2.09) was done at 32 psi. Others seem to do better at 28. What rpm are you shifting at? Anything less than 6500 is leaving something on the table. You should leave it in 3rd at the top end unless it's hitting the rev limiter before you get there. Are you switching off your traction control?

I know my 60' has to decrease, traction problems. I am walking it out T/C is off. I have been shifting at 60000 as my dyno shows the torque drop off at this point. I think track prep should help, so St.Thomas is where I should have an easier time. I was also told to drop my tire pressure. guess it can't hurt. Thanks for the responses. On a side note would LCA's help? I do plan on getting a set of tubular LCA's to help control the live axle. Not sure if it'll help straight line but was told it's night and day for track. Anyway cool weather and will report back. Cheers.

What rpm is your HP peak at? A good rule of thumb is to shift at about 10% higher rpm than where that peak occurs. It will feel like it's starting to fall on it's face, but it still ends up being faster. I can go deeper into that subject if you'd like, but for now I'll leave it at that.

LCA's will help at least slightly and should get rid of any wheelhop. They are a good first step. My eventual list of mods includes LCA's, a one-piece driveshaft and a driveshaft loop. That way I can comfortably run slicks if I want to.

HP peaks pretty much at 5700 and stays flat till it drops at 6100 so I guess shifting at 6300 should work. Rev limiter set at 6700 rpm

Many years ago (with another car), I managed my best time by launching around half throttle and once it hooked up, then nail it. People laughed when I told them that but my ticket proved it worked.

Play around with your launch to get the best time. Depending upon the track and weather conditions, sometime you need to leave softer. Other time you can come out the hole a lot harder. Use a couple test run to find "the sweet spot" at each track.

Talking Great Lakes Dragaway

My best time at Great Lakes Dragaway near Racine, WI was a 13.63 at 101. Just stock tires, CMDP, underdrive pulleys, and Tune. I was disappointed and so now have an intercooled Vortech SC. Hope to do some low 12's or so...

I found that LCAs alone didn't do it. I had to use UCA as well. You will get a bit more noise from the shifting, but I don't think there is any way around it.

I found that my best time was kind of riding the clutch and no wheel spin...
