First track outing

Today I took my GC out for my first pass in it. All stock down to the tires with the exception of a CAI and tune. Made four passes with a best of 13.24@102 and DA was 1200'. I must say it did better then I thought it would as I only expected 13.6s. Unfortunately I also had a half a tank of gas I was lugging around. For this pass it was simply placed in drive and mashed the gas. BTW I tried pulling the ABS fuse on my next pass but lost .2 in my 60' And killing any hope of a 12.XX pass. So is a 13.24 sound about right for my rig and mods? I also did not have time to help the adaptive a following the toona load.

I will load the slip after I eat.

Also got some great data logs to send back to Johan.

Way to go and things will just get better as you go along just dont over do it on the mods unless you really want to get to the low 12s. PM SENT. IMO any jeep with a cai and tune should be in the 12.90s in good DA with water grains below 50. Its a start but your times are what bone stock jeep turn in but after Johan gives you some revisions you will pick up.

Thanks all. I was hoping/wishong I would eak out a 12.99 or better, but not that day. Maybe in the spring after some logs and revisions.

I was looking at my logs from yesterday and it keeps pulling timing out in 3rd gear. 3 degrees retard at one point. I can't help but feel that is this wonderful 91 pump gas we have here in Oklahoma. I would like to find something better and try some logs with that just to see if it takes care of the timing issue.

Here are my slips. All passes were done with just placing the gear selector in drive and flooring the pedal. DA just over 1200', front tire pressure was 40 and rears were at 36 with the exception of the last pass and I dropped the rears down to 26 to see what would happen.

1st pass left lane, was just drive and go after a 45 minute cool down. (against a Mustang GT)

2nd pass left lane, was the same as 1st pass after waiting about an hour in between runs. (Against a Mustang C/S)

3rd pass right lane, I pulled the ABS fuse other wise the same as above with about an hour cool down. (Against EVO)

4th pass right lane, ABS fuse back in and lowered rear tire pressure to 26lbs only about 20 minutes cool down. (Against Firebird)
