CarTest has played an instrumental role in estimating how much power, and what gear ratios we would need to conquer the Mojave and Texas Mile. As we later found out through actual experience, CarTest was so accurate, it was predicting our times and speeds within 1% accuracy. Using our dyno charts from the Arizona ESS tuning, I input the values into CarTest to estimate how we would perform.
Here's an update on the projected results. There are three columns:
- RS-46 (N/A) with 3.15 Final Drive
- RS-46 (N/A) with 3.85 Final Drive
- ESS-46 (F/I) with 3.15 Final Drive
The Standing Mile prediction for this configuration is 185.78 MPH. So, anything near that speed will be a victory for Phase-1 of this project. The next goal is to complete Phase-2 in time for the October Texas Mile event.
