any updates ?
Yes sorry, I have not updated this thread in awhile as I am still dialing in traction on the new R888Rs and the best ET I have been able to muster is 10.03 with a 1.698 60 foot. My best trap has been 148. Problem with my set-up is a hard BOTL and RPM launch with a better 60 foot time results in wheel spin through 1st and 2nd making a low rpm bogged launch the only way to avoid short shifting for wheel spin. I just had Procom add adjustable boost by gear and adjustable traction control (see screen shot below) and hope to be able to crack into the 9s now that I can dial down power in 1st and 2nd (I am thinking 18psi in 1st and 22 psi in 2nd, full boost in 3rd). Ambient air temps have also been in the 50s my few times out so now that it is getting warmer my tires may get a little stickier too.
I am heading to a private track rental on Monday and will report back. That being said I know these turbos won't win and drag strip contests and that is not really the point; I wanted a versatile turbo for fast street, drag strip, and road course that didn't take anything away from the GT-R ease of use and livability.
Going to try to get into the 9.6 to 9.7 et with the r888rs and then retire the Rs for the road course and summer streets and try move to a 4 wheel slick package for the strip later on in the season and see if i can get into the low 9s with this set up the way Piano did. I am wondering if the new Rs are not as good on the strip as the old Rs but I will reserve judgment until I am out on a warmer day.
In terms of fun on the street I love this set up and the tuning and mechanical work has been spot on. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
