Hello everyone.

Yesterday we rented Summit Motorsports Park in Norwalk, Ohio. This the first time we have taken a GTR out to a drag strip to record performance and data. Overall it was a good day. Our R1K package ran a best of 9.38 at 155.29 and a best trap speed of 156.44

First, a video from in the cockpit:


Video from starting line:


R1K timeslips:





There was a 10-15mph headwind all day and temps peaked at 65F, track temps struggled to get above 80F. This made for a very slick starting line, as you can see (and hear) the car spun the tires in first and second gear. The E900 GTR recorded the best 60' of the day, a 1.56.

I will add that our best 60-130mph for the R1K that day was a 3.96.

There is a massive amount of pictures and video from everyone and it is coming in today. As I cut together videos edit pictures they will be posted here.

Congrats!

A better 60' on R1k would have resulted in 9 flat!

MAn 60-130 in 3.9 is TT G territory!

Congrats once again!

9.8 on street tires is moving too!!!

Switzer cars are rocking!!

How accurate is the G meter on the Vbox? I guess a better question is how does 1 G of force feel on your face? That car sounds crazy. Good run though.
10hz sampling, so yes it is rather accurate. One of the early runs we saw had a spike close to 2g's when it hit 2nd gear.

Thanks everyone!

Attached is the verified graph of the 60-130 portion of this run. Max Long G's during this run were 1.27. Congrats, Switzer!

Vid is great. Looking forward to seeing more vids as you guys get time to edit. That 60-130 time is absolutely nuts
Tym did a really nice job getting the car out of the hole as well

Amazing work guys. I guess all those corn field didn't slow you down that much.

Can you give us a general idea of how much tranny work was done on this car? Was Shep involved?
