Very nice times!!  Glad to know you have similar numbers to what I get with my BSR Tune.

Now where are you located?  Just curious about the air temp as the cool weather seems to bring out the best in these turbos.

Sol_man I live in Houston Tx. The air temp was about 70. You can go to Dragtimes.com and see all the Solstice time slips, the best is 12.02 ET. You can post yours also.

 DeepBlueGXP     You have the 6th best 1/4 mile on dragtime.com with a GXP. Get some drag radials and you will be 2-3 tens faster. Hope some of the other guys on the blog will post time slips too. The picture of your car looks great!

Here are my latest 1/4 times. Mods: GMPP Intake, GMPP Tune, SSR Type-C wheels. I know my 60' times are horrible. Any ideas on how to lower my 60' other then lowering tire pressure?

That is a pretty good improvement I think. How much were you launching at? I launched at about 2k-2200 and would get anywhere from 1.99-2.3 60 foot times. I think if you do a small burn out at the beginning and launch at a good # your 60 foot will improve.

I made two more passes today, here are the time. This time, I lowered my rear tire pressure to about 26lbs. I also realized the track was not prepped at all. People were spinning off the line all the time.

Lithium Lotus you look very consistent on launching even the surface is bad, for my point of view 13.9 with GMPP tune is a great time.

Just what did you do to that boy to give him the "need for speed?"

Got any embarrassing stories about Joe's younger years that might help keep Chuckdoc from talking so much heat here at KP?

I got some new runs in yesterday. I went to a different track then my previous runs.

Current set-up: GMPP Tune, GMPP Intake, Solo Mach Shorty, Solo high-flow cat, street tires

1/4 time / mph / 60ft

14.034 / 98.38 / 2.31
14.006 / 98.19 / 2.27
13.941 / 98.83 / 2.29
13.933 / 98.59 / 2.26
13.746 / 99.48 / 2.22

I'm not sure how I manage to run the 13.7. I actually hot lapped that run. The only thing I think I did was tach it up a little bit right before the lights started coming down.

Lithium LotusSo what you are saying is by replacing only your cat-back and the cat you gained 0.4s on your E/T?

Of course different situations like temp, alt, track surface can be accountable but even so looks like a huge difference to me.
