ok here are three of my passes..I got to other 14.9's but the peeps did not gimme the printouts. I LOVE the nitto drags they are SUPER consistent, I got like 6 good passes, all almost identical. I had a blast and had a good race with a new mustang GT (he was close, got a 14.7 but he redlighted..hehe) and a civic hatch (90, with vtec dohc swap) BUT since the tires are lower overall dia. than stock I had to shift to 4th way before the 1/4 mile..




btw, I used nitto drags at 18psi. no seat and VP c12 (5gal.)

DAMN dude, a 9.6 1/8 mile!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I was gonna say you either had boost or juice cause my boy ran a 9.7 1/8 mile with a 4000 quattro with a 5000 Turbo motor in it, with a 13 flat 1/4 and judging by the 1/8 mile time you got I knew you had something nice done to that motor. Props to you and keep tinkering, gotta show them 5.0's whats up

Re: drag racing..take 2....timesplips posted (DubinBuffalo)

Thanks dude
,i was happy with the results although a 14.7 is possible if i get some more practice

but peeps here have ran much better with similar mods. I am in Puerto Rico where conditions are not that ideal although today was nice. (track prep is not that great but decent)
I have 268cams, giac chip, 3.94, conical k&n in there, no cat + tt exhaust 2.5" , I have stock suspension on, I removed the pass. seat/spare and rear backrest + used 5 gal. of c12 fuel

9.7 only because it's quatro and he coulnd't come outta the hole hard. I run 8.4 1/8th miles with a 13.1 @ 104mph..
Nice time though. You should be able to get 14.7's or so with a VR6. I acctually got a 14.57 and 14.69 with a stock car.. Practice makes perfect, good job!

Maybe you mean that your friend ran an 8.7 1/8th of a mile with a 13 flat 1/4?
I ran a 9.3 1/8th of a mile and 14.3 E.T. (on street tires, and without NOS), so I would think his 1/8th of a mile should be better!?!

Anton, great races! Maybe next time you'll kick the 'stang's butt! http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif
BTW that seems strange that you are in 4th at the end of the 1/4 mile but your speed is only 92 miles per hour?

It was salinas. Check fiebre.com. We post there when a bunch of us are going to the track.
VR6BOPER:
I have a 3.94 final drive. I shift to 4th bout 100ft before the end of the 1/4 I believe (with the nittos, 205-45-15) I use kumhos 205-55-15 on the street and I used them last time at the track and passed in third at 7100 rpms and sometimes i had to shift to 4th right before the end of the 1/4. I got milage from 92.9 to 93.6 that day and a best of 14.98 with a 2.29 60ft. SOme people here get 95+ mph with my setup in the USA, maybe I need to check something. But here on the island I havent seen a faster GLX.

Re: drag racing..take 2....timesplips posted (Anton73)

When I run without NOS I shift to 4th at about the same point as you (100' from end of track) . It's strange, because most N/A VR6 owners say they end the 1/4 mile in third gear?
Anyway, your times are great for a Jetta which would obviously weigh more than a GTI. Have you ever wighed your car?

I agree because when I ran my car, I got mph of 104.7 but that was shifting into 4th at around 96+ mph or something. I don't see why you would shift into 4th at 92 mph, you sould tach that car out in the quarter. Still a good run though.

Re: drag racing..take 2....timesplips posted (VR6BOPER)

he has 3.94 r&p , but i would say u should be shifting ALOT sooner , cause my friend with 3.67slc i shift it to 4th around the 1000ft mark. so 3.94 sould be a bit before that
but either way glad to see imporvemtn

what other mods does he have, 14.9 with 3.94? Shouldn't that be faster, I didn't see a break down of mods.

Re: drag racing..take 2....timesplips posted (TheDeer)

His car wasn't sorted right, it came all on at about halfway down the track, thats why his 1/8 wasn't good compared to what the 1/4 time was. Plus, were more into autocrossing than dragging, I mean we have more experience with that then dial ins and all that stuff. Oh yea, 80 is mad warm, in Buffalo NY it gets that warm in August for like 1 day, then it snows again the next week J/K Props on the good times everyone.

Re: drag racing..take 2....timesplips posted (86 VR666)

I was thinking the same thing. I've heard of stock VR6's running 14.9's. Maybe its just the weather? I've also heard you should be shifting around 6500rpm but you have 268's cams.
Anyway, I think your car can go faster.
Good luck. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif
