Default *** I DID IT ! ! ! Smashed the 8-second barrier today ***

Mission accomplished ! 8.87 at 155Mph .

I got in on a last minute rental today and after 2 weeks of sh*t weather here in the Northeast , I was salivating at the chance to race today , everything fell into place , just like I needed it to .

The track was good , not great , and took some time to figure out , I had some promising runs in the beginning of the day , tried a few new things , had some traction problems and was under the gun by the end of the day , the rental closes at 430pm , it was 415pm and I still didn't have that 8-second slip , all day I kept leaving with less boost 2-3lbs and playing with tire pressures and finally ran ran a 9.08 at 156 , almost there , pulled a 1.47 60ft , I came back around , let the car cool down about 5 minutes and pulled in to the burnout box at 427pm , did a short burnout and staged , I got to the line and said f*ck it ! I knew I had to come out harder but wasn't sure if the track would hold because it wasn't earlier on , I came up on the transbrake saw 5lbs and let it rip , I honestly knew it was an 8-second pass by about the 1000ft mark , the car was dancing around and pulling harder than it ever has , no way I was lifting , I hit the rev limiter right at the finish line . As Julio gave me the slip he told me it was a 9.01 , I was still happy , when I read it and it said 8.87 I almost jumped through the roof .

I finally got my 3700+lb pig in the 8's and I did it like I wanted to on the same wheels and tires I drive on every day , the car was driven to and from the track ( 145 miles round trip ) on my radials .

Here's a breakdown of the slip .

60ft-1.373

1/8th-5.744

1/8th MpH-125.00

1/4-8.874
Mph-155.29


And there's more in it , no boost controller , I'm running off the spring in my Tial-60 wastegate , the largest spring combo is 15lbs , I'm running a 14lbs spring , car is making 18lbs of boost . When I get the right boost controller I should be able to run another 3-4lbs of boost .

I'm very impressed with my Cartek 402 , the motor is a mild combo , no exotic parts , I was dead broke when I had Cartek build it , so it was a budget build .

Stock bore LS-2 block ,

Cartek Turbo Grind Hydraulic-roller cam , stock rocker arms .

Stock LS-6 Intake manifold , stock ported throttle body .

ETP 255 LS-1 Heads with stock Z-06 Exhaust manifolds .

I wonder what it would run with some 6-bolt LS-7 style heads and intake and a solid-roller ?? .

Huge props to the whole Cartek crew for all you've done for me over the last 8 years , I never could have done this with out you guys . .

On to the driveline , my

RPM Built 4L80E Trans is a f*cking beast ! I hot lapped the car a few times today and it never skipped a beat , you guys are the kings of the C5/C6 driveline world



I've got some thinking to do over the winter , I may turn it up a notch , or I may just de-tune and enjoy it like I did most of this year .

I achieved my goal of running 8's in a true street driven IRS A4 transmission C5 , now I will have to set a new goal .
The timeslip and video will be up shortly .

Thanks guys , I have so much energy right now I don't think I'll be able to sleep tonight , I love setting a goal and finally achieving it . I can't wait to see the video , Max from Cartek said it pulled the front wheels pretty good on one of the runs .
