appologise for the as usual far to lengthy post, just cbf writing it twice so i wrote the same for my car thread.

Went down tonight, took with me a shagged set of 235/15/60 MT ET streets and 225/15/50, didnt use the 235s because they were just too shagged and didnt want to risk it. from the outset i knew i wouldnt be breaking records as it was only my second trip down there, and my first with anything more than a stock driveline (previous outings netted a PB of 15.5 @~88mph). the tyres being a little too small and not wide enough i knew would let me down.


wasnt confident on the first burnout and only dropped 2nd, limitered it straight away and wasted my time and didnt heat the tyres right, launch was crap and i wasnt rough enough.

went 13.422 @ 109.89 mph (2.453 60')

2nd run did a much better burnout from 3rd, and took off hard enough, with some improvements to be made, but ****ed 2nd to 3rd and ended up loosing boost as i ****ed around with it, only ended up with

13.560 @ 111.24 mph (2.338 60')

3rd (and as it turned out final) run, another good quick burnout and staged, built up the revs expecting to get a green light (redline for a few secs) but the car next to me ****ed up and was being spoken to so i was told to stop for a sec (revving the **** out of the engine for 10seconds+ did me no good). eventually told it was ok and again revved the **** out of it and ended up doing a smoother pass of

12.688 @ 115.83 mph (2.245 60')

as i slowed at the end of the track i noticed the temp guage was on max (never happens) and the battery light was on... thoguht i must have shaken something loose but none the less carefully limped it back to the carpark. parked it, popped the hood to let it cool for a min, popped the hood to hear a hiss then POP, blew the coolant overflow lid off, i noticed the fan wasnt spinning so i quickly shut it off. turns out i somehow lost my water/alternator belt, not cool. hopefully no real damage, and hopefully be back at the track again to see if i can better myself on those baby MT's before i move up the correct size...

PB 12.549 @ 190.81 tonight

convinced i can do better, every single run i did was a high 12 or lower, and constant KPH above 180. even though i was okd to have a passenger and passed to run, first run was pulled aside and told i could keep racing tonight but not to come back again untill i had a 4point harness,then next run told no more passengers too.

far too hot and still convinced the ET streets are letting me down too much, 225 50 r15 is a size too small for me i think. given up trying to race in this weather, by the time we were having our last runs at about 9.30pm the ambient temp was still 28.7 degrees and 48% humidity. still too much wheel spin, 60' staying above 2.2s

will be back in late march/early april to see how much i can improve on the mid 12s.
