I use a mini-DV camera, and Adobe Premiere Pro for editing.

I don't think that would work out quite how you want it to. :grinno:
Remember, if I get down to sea level, that is around a 13.0 at 114.


And yes Hypsi, I am starting a new job tomorrow, and should be getting vacation sometime in September, I hope. I really hope. And if I do, the Trans Am will be coming out with me. Along with many tapes for the camera. :smokin:

Don't worry, he gets it.

You'll break into those 13's soon enough Luos. Considering the altitude even, that's awesome. Showed the old man your vid, he still loves your car. He actually requested that you get some racing vids of your car. Mano y Mano...ya know? I'd like to see that as well.

Like an entire vid dedicated to a one on one race with whoever you can get to do it. From a 25 mph roll, 40 mph roll, and a dig. The usual street racing shiz. Both my dad and I share the same interest when it comes to TA's. Your's especially. Not many people actually can show you a vid of their car in action with such great footage. Like yours for example. The entire idea of it was what made my day. I would hope to own one (WS6) but that's a long ways away for me. So, watching one in action is all that I really have.

Plus, you show off quite a bit of footage as well. Most TA's in action are only there for less than 30 seconds. Just a teaser is what they are to me. I really don't have too many suggestions, but just as I posted in the first paragraph.

Mr. Luos

if i was racing at mr luos' altitude i'd probably have trouble breaking 14s. if mr luos raced me on my track he'd rape me all night and then some in the mornin'. and i wont even talk about what a gentle launch that was. thats a 12 second car, easy. some of you guys on here really don't know anything about drag racing. such as mr2envy. my post said 'stock gt mustangs can run 13s'. as in the abilities there. my proof was a slip showing 14.3@98mph with a 2.2 60'. But, apparently it doesn't matter what your 60' is..you'll still always run your best time. :rolleyes: With a 2.0 60'...that run would have been a 13.9. Do you know why I said that? Because a run I made prior was a 13.9 with a 2.0 60'. Sorry for hijacking your thread, Mr Luos. Make sure you guys use the PM feature rather than ruining Mr Luos' thread!!! Or just make a new thread.

ok, you claim your car ran 13.9 well it did not, but who cares. What I do care about is the fact that you constantly call people out and try to make them look like a dumbass, you think you are the best thing for AF since sliced bread. You need a vacation. A week to be exact. I did not ban you because if your lack of proof, I banned you for your lack of respect towards other members. When you come back, clean up your act, if not, I can upgrade it to a permanate ban.

Well, he's telling the truth about his 60'. Gaining 2 or 3 tenths in the 60 would make huge differences in the 1/4. But still, if a bull frog had wings, it wouldn't bump its ass everytime it hopped. lol

With a 2.0 60'...that run would have been a 13.9.
I am thinking more like 13.4 or so. :evillol:

That run in the video was on a 2.423 60' time. On average, 0.1 on the 60' is 0.2 off the ET.
I had to baby it off the line. I went to the track that day hoping for anything in the 13's. Turns out, my clutch had other plans. Look at the trap speed. 105 MPH. That is crazy for an N/A car on this mountain. And I am running stock heads and stock tune. Man, I can't WAIT for this 402ci to be in. I decided on heads. AFR 225's. Now I just have to decide on what compression ratio I want. I would like to keep it about stock so I can add some boost later. I need a raise first though. :)

Anyways, glad you guys enjoyed the video!!!

ok, anyway. Mr. Luous, i would go for NA w/ high compression if i were you...just because NA iz da shiz....though i can see from your stand point where up on a mountian you can up the boost to compensate for altitude pressure loss...

14.053. That's pretty impressive at a mile up! I'd say you could get 1.9 60s if you could launch the car at a respectable RPM instead of off idle, lol, and that's at your mile up track! That woudl put you in the high side of mid 13s, and that's at your track!

I garuntee you would have a 12 second car, maybe high 12, but 12 second nonetheless at a track closer to sea level.

I seen a Camaro you'd be impressed with (hell, anybody would be impressed with it!) Saturday night! The guy drove it to the track, put skinnines and slicks on it (actually, I believe it already had skinnies on it LOL), and it ran a 4.95 in the 330 with like a 1.69 60ft! It was BAD ASS! And where I race is probably atleast a 1000 ft. above sea level, or really close to it anyways.

Mr. Luos
05-10-2005, 11:20 PM
Nice!!

If I could hook, and hook to the tune of a 1.9 60' at sea level, I should be below 12.5, or right at it. Probably trapping around 113.
Damn....I need off this mountain.

Lol. Man you need to take your car to a track closer to sea level just to see what it'll do! Even if it means pulling it on a trailer (if you have one).

But, 14.0hs is no doubt considered very fast at your track for a street car.

Mr. Luos
05-11-2005, 08:10 PM
But, 14.0hs is no doubt considered very fast at your track for a street car.
Most anything running in the 13's is either an extremely modded F-Body, or something with a large turbo. Of course there are the tubbed race cars and all, but those aren't street cars really.
Mine is pretty damn mean for N/A, even up here. Not many guys can trap 105 here without a power adder of some sort. Kinda makes me feel a little better about shitty launches.

But you have to realize that Luos is about a mile high as far as altitude goes. Had he been running at sea level, he easily would be able to pull of a low 13 high 12 second run. So a 14.1 that high is incredibly good, especially for a N/A car. Plus, his latest run was 14.1 at 105 mph!

05-14-2005, 07:34 PM
13.2-13.4 sounds about right for sea level.

Mr. Luos

NHRA correction factors put me at 12.95 at 113.

Remember.....2.428 60' also. Improve on that some and we start going MUCH deeper into the 12's.
