Drag racing the ng900

Tried to see what the new turbo would do on the track and it immediately took the clutch out. You can hear it let loose in second gear and then re-grab and spin the tires. 13.4 at 118mph

Check it:

i think that was mostley wheel spin. but if he got traction i bet 0-60 would be pretty quick.

It went from clutch spin to wheel spin" to hooked... I am going to have to make the move to slicks. Just need a 8" wide rim that is 15" so I can fit the 26x10.5x15 slicks I want to run. That with some lowered boost in first and second gear and I will gain a full second by most people's account of how much better you do when you swap from drag radials to slicks...

Spec stage 3 pressure plate, new 6 puck and new spec center flywheel piece.

I can only dream I sure wish I had, the vert was available at a good price when I started modding and now I have so much time and energy in it, its hard to squash all that to return to a hard top... Its heavy fo shoo....

I know, if the clutch would have held, that should have been a 12 second run, I am going to lower the boost in first and second and I have a spec pressure plate coming soon.

The next step is to find some 8" wide rims so I can get some 26x10.5x15 slicks on the car. I might have to go 14" rims to get room for the side-wall and so the slicks do not hit the fender wells...

The trap speed is good for 11's, but that dang traction issue.... The Honda guys were telling me the slicks would be good for a full second, that would put me right in the low 12's to high 11's... We shall see....

Swapping the motor and set-up to the 9k would be the smart move, no roll bar or cage needed until below 11.49, its just all the time and energy to make such a swap.

I have thought of doing a cheap run on my cse. Put in a holset and just see what it will take and then rebuild it, but I might just do the roll bar in the mean time because the car is so much closer to the end of my goals.

OT: is that a Greddy turbo timer I see there under the radio?

This was the gt3076 .86ar turbine. Clutch was second year on viggen pressure plate with spec stage 3 6-puck disk.

Will get new spec stage 3 6puck disk with spec pressure plate.
