Well today saw the WSID drag day organised by Duncan from the xr6 turbo forums area. The day started off cool and but the sun came up and clouds left leaving a really warm day. I think it hit around mid 20 degrees or so.
The day turned out quite well. I finished up early and will explain why later
. The field consisted of mainly commodores, some xr6 turbos and other various cars.
I was pretty stoked that on my first ever virgin run I ran a 19.95 @ 92.75mph run. As the day went by I managed to improve on the 60ft times and at other times botch my 2nd to 3rd gear changes. Overall the car ran pretty consistantly and I finished up with a PB of 14.68 @ 94.63mph. This with an unopened engine with only exhaust and Unichip fitted. F'n awesome.
I think I still have some work to go with seeing if there's any better way of getting off the line - at the moment dumping the clutch at 2000rpm (or less) is all that I've been doing.......
.......and as such have also put one more final nail in the coffin to my already on-its-way-out clutch. Was it worth it ? Yep. Mental note: book car in for new clutch. Overall the day was quite worth it.
Oh and thanks to Soxx and bro and Jonbays for any tips and humour provided on the day.
