Well, this was my first time ever at the track. I learned a bunch and managed to get into the 7's which was my goal for my first time ever drag racing. I'm super happy with how its running and think I can get into the low 7's soon.

My mods are listed in my sig. I was on MT 275 drag radials on 17" rims. Tokico Stuts and eibach springs. I was launching somewhere between 4500 and 5000 rpms...I believe. I wasnt paying attention to much but just trying to concentrate. LOL. I had a blast and was impressed with how it ran.

I'm waiting to hear back from a friend to see if he has a video of my first pass, which was something like an 8.5 at 92 mph.

Yeah, I'm still waiting on the video too. I think its just of my very first pass like an 8.6 at 90mph or something like that. I'll get it posted up as soon as my buddy uploads it on the local forum.

It hooked pretty good on one side of the track. As long as I had a good burn out I was fine on the launch. I remember that a coupled times it seemed like when I hit 2nd gear I would loos traction. But that was more because the track wasnt prepped out past a certain point as much.

It was just a 3" back home made exhaust. It has an ebay trubo manifold, ebay DP and 3" back mandral bent exhaust with an ebay muffler.

Were you on any type of launch control? I can't view the videos with the computer i'm on so I can't tell :(. Great times though!

No launch control that time. I need to get it setup in the stinger for the next time. This engine setup is going into my MK4 I purchased a few months back. It'll be running a precision 6775 with E-85. I may start a new build thread soon. And of course after getting everyting tuned and setup I'll be back at the track. The goal is to be somewhere in the 750whp range and make a low 7 second 1/8 mile pass :)

When you make your build thread please link it back here so I get notice of it :). Are you running the 3.73 gear? Or did you upgrade to the 4.30?

OK, I sure will. In the MK3 I was running the 3.73 rear end. I purchased a MK4 TT auto diff with the 3.73 gearing so the gears will be the same in the MK4. I really like that gearing as I can hit about 105 to 110MPH in 3rd if needed. :)

I hope it'll be a beast.... The E-85 decision was made a lot on the hopes that it'll spool the 6775 quickly. So I hope it does the job.

No new updates. I wish I had some. :) I do plan on being back at the track this year with my MK4. I just upgraded the diff and drive shaft. It's all a 6 speed setup now with TRD LSD and DDS drive shaft. I need to tune it on E85 and get to the track. I will update with new time soon.
