  1. I didn't get a chance to try any second gear launches this weekend just gone (fun day for the Night Speed Drag Wars series I competed in) but was able to get some pretty consistent times. Managed 3 back to back 11.5**'s all at around 121.**MPH. Best was 11.515 @ 121.46MPH with 60' of 1.786. Fastest MPH on the day was 122.22. Feels like the stock 122k old suspension might be letting me down on the launch - although the wheelspin is what probably what saves my driveline haha Had the Mrs drive my XR6T while I drove her XR8 - side by side - epic fun watching your car cruise
  2. Perfect. The LPG plugs are the same as the turbo ones, they just come pre-gapped at 0.7mm. Sent from my LYA-L09 using Tapatalk
  3. What gap are you running? I'm running OEM 0.7mm I think from an LPG motor. Sent from my LYA-L09 using Tapatalk
  4. And what is that above it!!?? FGX XR6T is almost 90KG lighter on the nose than the XR8!
  5. I wonder how accurate the roll a dyno's of 8 years ago are compared to today's? @JETURBO out of curiosity, were you able to do a comparison on the same vehicles between your roller Dyno and the hub Dyno? Sent from my LYA-L09 using Tapatalk
  6. Brilliant post - thanks! Haha love those sorts of meetings (sometimes). Very interesting seeing those slips and how the cars perform - especially the 11.29 @ 128.75 - the 60' was terrible @ 2.002 yet the MPH is getting up there! I wouldn't be surprised if that's a 10 second et if he can get that 60' down to a 1.7** That 10.88 must have struggled to get moving as well - that MPH should be a LOW 10! I know it's a different beast altogether, but there's a 2010 GT that runs low (10.3) to mid (10.6) 10's @ 128-130MPH at my track. So I'm surprised to see that the 10.88 above wa
  7. Lol I know who he is and well aware of his credentials. I am just yet to find a 300rwkw full trim falcon that can run times/mph similar to what he is suggesting. Happy to be corrected with slips! Sent from my LYA-L09 using Tapatalk
  8. Lovely. Perhaps a built driveline and full noise launch might get a 300rwkw Falcon down to a low 1.6, high 1.5 60' - but if we're talking about that sort of mods, they're generally more than 300rwkw so not very comparable. Again, feel free to share time slips. Sent from my LYA-L09 using Tapatalk
  9. Mate those are very happy figures and would love to see time slips with those claims! My pics attached. This is what a genuine 350rwkw (ok so 346.8rwkw) E85 burning, full weight FGX does. You're a bit off on your kW to mph figures from what I've seen an experienced. There's a few ~480kw full weight 8's over here that are running mid to low 10's and they're 130-133mph. I don't see how a Barra with ~80kw less could keep up? Sent from my LYA-L09 using Tapatalk
  10. What was the mph? With a terrible launch (spinning all through first) the best I could do with 350rwkw and running VERY cheap 235 tyres was a 12.2 with a 60' that I think started with a 2..... MPH was around the same as I get usually of 119. Good tyres would defo get the et down to high 11's. Sent from my LYA-L09 using Tapatalk
  11. Yeah I know. I was just making a point that I can leave the line on boost and don't generally have to wait for it to build or kick in Midway through their gear like stock. Sent from my LYA-L09 using Tapatalk
  12. I'm leaving on anything up to 10PSI as long as the track will hold it (well could go to I think about 16PSI but that's driveshaft twisting/input shaft breaking territory or it just does a burnout on the line....) - so I generally don't need to wait for boost once I've left. Usually leaving at about 2,800rpm and try and hold 2-4PSI. I feel like if I change early from 1st to 2nd early, the change is quite long and the decceleration jolt as it changes is quite severe.
  13. Genius! Why didn't I think of that! Will try your method on Sunday! Sent from my LYA-L09 using Tapatalk
