First 10 Second Saab in America !

Finally got the job done, the car was on fire and we ran two 10 second runs last night, best run was 10.61 at 139.54mph. We did this a mile high too boot

We ran in Street wars, kind of weird, no tree, they had a real stop light and it would be red and then go green, grudge racing, win or lose, no dial in times. They gave us the time slips, so that part was the same. 7.0 in 1/8th mile.

Cannot post the picture of the slip on this site, server error, but its on my facebook page and on the other forums too.

Yes, all done on the stock ecu The biggest problem was the rpm limit, once they figured out how to raise the hard code so I could run a 8k rev limit, it was all good. The big thing Nira has over trionic is the ALS, the launch control and the flat shift feature. It also allows you to scale everything to 10k and trionic is out at 7500rpm.

It was a lot of work, but all seems worth it now

The LSD does not help all that much in a straight line, but the slicks make a huge difference, you go from having a fine line between bogging and blowing the tires off with drag radials to only bogging with slicks You either bog or go !
