    Ponoma wrap up

    I know I have started several threads on somewhat the same subject but they are different enough I have not combined.

    I was out in SoCal for a bit of R & R and I found out the NMCA (http://www.nmcadigital.com) event at Ponoma was on the same weekend I was here. They have not allowed street cars there since the early 90's so I thought why not. There were 500 cars at the event and ultimately we had a lot of fun.

    Fri - test and tune
    This was exactly as the name implied. We made three runs and the car was got progressively faster as we started to dial it in. The temps were getting cooler (but still in the mid/high 90's) when we made our last run. As you can see in the video and time slips, the car was not hooking up and it was spinning in 1,2,3. Once the car hooked up however, everything was a different story. The top end of this car is absolutely amazing and whist there was only 2/10ths different in times, my car was closing at over 20mph on the guy in the next lane.

    Best result 10.212 at 144.61

    Sat - true street
    I registered the car in the 'true street' category. The format of this class is a 30 mile run followed by the cars going directly to the staging lanes. We waited for about 30 minutes and then we did 3 consecutive hot laps not going to the staging lanes but rather using the return road in the front of the grandstands. What this meant was no icing of the intercooler and the car ran how it would truly run on the street.

    3 run result (hot lapping)
    10.218 at 140.28 1st run
    11.104 at 132.00 2nd run
    10.672 at 138.78 3rd run

    You have to remember this was the first time racing with the 3.0 blower (the car has many months of SoCal driving with the same set up) so to use another members' words, we were 'testing'. As you can see by the mph, the issue I had was traction. The car performed incredibility well without ice and this shows you just how fast it is as a daily driver. The car weights 3,975 with me so is at full weight (it is 100% NHRA legal for racing and I will have to put a full cage shortly).

    I don't kiss a$$ but I can not thank the Weistec boys enough for the true LOW 10 second daily driver they have given me. The fact that someone like me could get into the car on Saturday and produce those results is a true testament to how strong of a platform this is.

    I have never made a prediction but I will say 'you haven't seen nothing yet'.

    so, your best run was 10.2@144, but hot lapped it was 10.2@140, or are you saying 10.2 best ET and 144 best mph?

    I don't think Weistec has any plans for meth on these motors. They prefer to do it on pump or race.

    Luke,

    Choices are kind of limited for longer road trips but as long as one keeps the foot lightly on the gas we are all good.

    Earl - I'm sure you know this already....but your loss of traction thru third gear could be greatly reduced with a better drag suspension. As much work as you have done with this car, I'm surprised you haven't done this as it can be easily switched back to stock in a couple hours for street driving.

    I hear ya man. And It's clear that you car is the fastest and quickest MB for sure. Messing with the suspension probably isn't worth it since I know you enjoy street and road courses. But I'm sure JRCart is going to nipping at your heels soon Click here to enlarge

    Hit me up in Sept and I'll show you a good time in LA. Maybe we can get a group together and rent Willow Springs out for a day.
