IFO Montgomery, AL 3/5/2017

I know it's a long shot, but I thought I'd put it out there.

I'm going to be at IFO this Sunday to at least Test-n-Tune, if not race in the Forced Induction Sport class.

I'll have pics and ( hopefully ) vids after. Hope to see some members there.

A lot of fast cars out there, but alas, mine was not one of them.

On street tires, the car completely blew through 1st and 2nd as soon as I made any boost. At the top of 2nd, it would violently try to wheelhop. Turning the boost down to 13psi didn't help either.

My best passes were in the 15 second range. My wore out ass Nankang tires need to be replaced with something better for the street, and I won't be going back to the drag strip without some Hoosier QTPs.

I did trap 108.8mph on one pass, after spinning and short shifting through the 1/8th mile. Best gain from 1/8th to 1/4 was 36mph. The car has the power, but no traction under 80mph.

Apparently if you own a turbo Redline, sticky tires are not optional.

I did get to see a friend of mine go 8.82 @ 156mph in his 2JZ 240 though.
