Re: Jim Mock Motorsport DEV_3HL Kit

The DEV3HL kit is excellent, and will transform you car from a average family car to a low 15 second beast. Change the diff ratio to 3.45:1 and you might break into the 14 second class.

What's that?..... Did I hear you say TQE power?

Re: Jim Mock Motorsport DEV_3HL Kit

Its worth the money. Whatever the rwkw or the 1/4 time it transforms the feel of the car totally.

I have done it and don't regret it but I think the unichip may be the next thing to try more to fix the idle ( I am a bit fussy on this) and economy. (its not bad I still get 380-420Km a tank in Sydney city driving.

I am not sure about Soxx's 1/4 times though as mine certainly doesn't feel that fast but maybe he means with a manual. I am running mine this weekend so will let you know how the AU auto dev3hl wagon goes. It will be interesting. I have only run it once when stock and it ran a best of 16.8 worst of 17.1 seconds. I know that seemed slow to me too so I have been modding it ever since.

I may have been a bit optimistic, though I don't think you'd be far off that.

Re: Jim Mock Motorsport DEV_3HL Kit

Well Soxx on my favourite 1/4 mile calc site tci I can calc from Croydens rwkw and a guess on our vehicle weights (3785lbs) that you should be doing 14.7 at 147Kmh and I should be doing 15.7 at 138kmh. I think you already have proved this is achievable. Interesting mine stock at 106rwkw should have only run 17.2 at 125kmh. But then the 3785lb weight is just a guess so thats not bad

Of course this ignores gearing and traction but it is a good reference figure and you can't ignore that it's really all just physics.

My ute weighs 1600kg, and I'm just under 70kg, so that comes in at approx 3680lbs at race weight.
That was weighed on a proper RTA bridge.
