lol my race weight would have been a few kilos more than that possibly, as i have to have enough fuel to get home from heathcote!
but the 3.9 does allright, it will be interesting to see what it can produce at heathcote on the 10th.
How heavy are you? My XH ute was 1600kg without me in it.
They are damn good times considering the cars weight, if our dyno results are comparable, my ute should run a low 14, if I drive it as good as you do.
if u have a lsd and some good rubber u should be fine. at calder with the 3.45lsd and 225's it had heaps of grip. different story with a 2.92 open wheeler.
im 85kg on a good day, maybe if my g/f drives it ill get a 13 second pass lol
I have a 9" LSD in the ute, but the clutches are stuffed. I'm rebuilding it over the next couple of weeks. It's also 3.5:1.
Rubber is 255/40/17, so there is plenty of meat, though it still lights them up far to easy.
I feel the suspension is too firm for decent launches, it's more setup for circuit racing.
Hmm, over 1.6tonne is kinda nasty, but also good.. the more it weighs, the more there is to remove If you can drop a couple hundred kg of creature comforts (seats are pretty useless, as are doors, if you think about it , you could run 13's
Does anyone actually know the rules with running with no door trims? If you really wanteed to go lightweight you could remove the trims, back seat, passenger seat, carpet, centre console, spare tire, make up some polucarbonate windows, remove both headlights, put some steelie tires on (if they were lighter). I guess if you had to run with something on the doors you could make something out of cardboard to keep them happy.
are you still using the gas? if not rip the bloody tank out! they weigh nearly 100kg when full!
you did a 14.6 with 135rwkw and 1620kg....im hoping to get my car a little lighter than that, supposedly EB fairmont I6s were 1550, the XR6 should be about or less than that. have a stezza, but no spare tyre, jack or wheel brace (22kg saving there) trying to rebuild the stereo to drop another 5-10kg (out of like 50 or 60!!!) and i only weigh 67kg dripping wet...and should have about the same rwkw as Soxx when the engine is done - maybe i can go play with the stock GenIIIs after all???? that would be bloody unbelievable, taking out a mighty GenIII with a six!!!
i try and put in as much gas as i need to get there, and 1/4 tank of petrol. i will be taking all other stuff out u mentioned though. whats a spare tyre weigh? i ran at calder with it and all my tools in the back!! cant trust dodgy western suburbs! haha
