Tomorrow my car goes under the knife to get the new ACT carbon-carbon clutch installed. I'm so busy this summer that I don't think I'll see her back until September. So before I take her in, I decided to go out for some 60-130 MPH runs. Nothing really spectacular, not trying to set any records -- just having a little fun to see the car's performance.
All runs were performed with very heavy 20-inch "Power Eating" wheels, and track-shredded bone stock Michelin PS2 rubber. No drag radials; no middle of the night runs in 40 degree weather, at sea level, with a negative density altitude. For me, it was just the following conditions:
|9:15 - 10:00 PM||82.7||38.3||29.45||172-302||2285|
The real performance zealots make fun of anybody running 20-inch "Power Eating" wheels and tires on the car. Just so I gave my car as little advantage as possible, I'm running wheels that weigh 1.5 pounds more than HRE P40's. (That comment should make the little mindless nazi's at SS-Post go a little crazy.) The tires are completely track-shredded bone stock Michelin PS2's. The rear wheels and tires weigh in at a whopping 54.5 pounds.
