So you say your car can go past 6600RPM? what does it redline at...I hope you aren't going over redline.

Also, 190KPH in 3rd gear seems kinda steep, are you sure that's under redline???

uh 2KMAx, i'm juss sayin that i hate autos, not auto drivers. I'm sayin I'd never buy an auto cause it's so boring, and racing isn't fun at all in an auto, cause all you do is push the pedal.... take it easy buddy

oh, and i've never lost to an auto

Yeah I was having a bad day, not to mention something is real funny with the left lane. I don't know how it's possible to run a 15.2 at 80 MPH? Considering I was running a 15.3 at 91 earlier that day. Oh well, yeah the auto's were strong today.

You cheated by gutting your interior, I ran with box and all lol. My clutch is slipping bad in first gear after launching. My 14's will return one day and I'll prove it to you.

when i hit 140 i didnt even notice till my friend told me.."fool ur going 140!" i glimpsed down and saw my needle chillen right there, and saw my odometer spin like a mofo. anyway after 120mph it started creeping up to 140.
i didnt clock how long..i was too busy with my eyes on the road.

anyway.....how did the autos @ carlsbad?? anyone wanna clue me in???????

Wayne your killin me!!! You just need to quit jumping the light. I don't think I did bad for an auto on stock tires with full interior. With some practice I think I can drop 1-2/10ths off my time. 15.4@88mph. Wait a month and then we'll see whats up!!! Damn I miss my 96 5-speed.

The 4th gen auto's did well ranging from 15.4 to 15.6

5th gen 5spds were running 15.4-16.1 (Hoon's first run wasn't slick).

I ran with system, full interior, half tank of gas, tires at 25PSI.

I managed to get a best of a 15.20 @ 80 MPH?????????

I also got a 15.41 @ 79.5 MPH

and

15.3 @ 91.5 MPH

I've heard that Carlsbad timing equipment isn't very accurate, but I was getting horrible reads. My 15.2 run honestly felt faster than ANY other run I've done including my 14.7-14.9 runs. Oh well, the Carlsbad Rednecks, I mean ppl who ran the track didn't like us imports much, but all in all it was fun meeting everyone. By the way I was trying new stuff with my clutch, my launches were more aggressive than ever on this track. I slipped from 2500 and it went real well (the 15.2 run), but when I was running 14's I just dumped from 1500 and had better runs?

No matter what I did on this track all of my 60's were exactly the same 2.41 seconds which is high for how effective I thought my launches were.

thx....!!

well thx guys............now i gotta answer heep's question.....well the RPM is about 5600~5700 @ 178.5km/h..@ 3rd.....when i saw my speed again it was @ 189...and the RPM is around 6100~6200...@ 3rd still.....
.......and i also found out something pretty interesting about the auto max......if u like to go fast...
...use 1st gear in accleration until 6500RPM, 2nd gear till 6400RPM........let the O/D be on.......
....if u wanna go fast from under 100km/h....but faster than 70km/h use second gear and shift in to
D....when it almost reaches redline.....keep the O/D on so it could shift into 4th gear in time to reach
200km/h..... .....and last....ohh yeh...i didn't actually try to rev pass the red line, all i did was shift into 2nd gear a little late so it went about 6800RPM...i dunno how fast it could go though...it's maybe at its limit.....i was wondering if i could change my auto to a stick....can i do that?
...how much would it cost?...thx
