Title: Prince George Street Drags first weekend in June 2014

Joel/Jtin is planning to test his re-engine StrikerR headed Twin Turbo GTS at Prince George track June 6th.  Street leagal drags means that you can run wrinkle slicks that have the DOT logo,  :lol:

This sounds like a fun time.  Joel's TT ran 10.0 last year ... It may be possible to reach into the low 9s or perhaps 8 secs this time ... 

If your car can't make it come and watch.

Bummer, Joel smashed his tranny finally.  Scrambling to get a new one and install it before Fri to go test how his car works on low boost so he has an idea of how expensive a transmission he needs to buy ...

My Sapphire GTS is still planning to go to the PG drags on Friday.

Drew said he doesn't do straight lines well so he's not going to compete, but he'll probably be there.

Joel found a tranny in Vancouver and it's on its way to PG.  Probably won't get it tin time to make the drags ... but he does accomplish miracles once in a while

With your help should take more than 30 minutes, you're an expert on parking garage R&R's

Been there, done that.  Best ET was 11.7 and best mph was 127mph.  No traction until halfway through first gear. 

RSI SRT TT 1200whp ran beside me a couple times.  He beat me by 3 car lengths.  He ran a quickest of 11.3 (once) and he ran 131mph.

No, I didn't get the tune figured.  I think I removed 3 degrees of timing but progam wouldn't allow me acess to the computer after that.  Big clouds of Black/Blue smoke at the finish line.

Had tons of fun.  Fastest car was a Pro Mustang that was a second or so slow at mid 10s?   

My car was quite popular and a half dozen people said how much they love the sound.  I'll try to figure how to load a phone video to youtube and link it here.  I posted it on FB page  (thevipergarage.com)

Here's the link to the RSI 1500hp SRT that was detuned to 1200hp     http://www.aforwardmotion.com/keiths-rsi-performance-twin-turbo-dodge-viper/

Here's some pictures that Dave Morin shot and posted on my facebook.

Made the Friday night drags tonight again.

Joel had a good/bad day.  He ran from 130 - 140mph.  Went 11.3 to 10.5 (I think).  He ran good and bad runs.  One slipped sideways in third ... 

I ran 11.70 at 123 -126mph on my old PS2s.  No traction and was slidey going into second most of the time.  Tried lowering air pressure from 28 psi to 20 psi and slowed down about a tenth but gained 3mph because I lost traction. 

I ran a 2.1 and 2.2 sec sixty foot times.  I received a time slip that said I managed a 1.3 sixty foot ... but that was obviously a mistake and Joel received a 2.2 sixty foot time.

Had fun and Joel didn't break anything so it was a good night.

Best I could get with my TT GTS set at about 950whp and smoking R888s through 3rd was 10.4@ 149mph. This year the machine shop I paid to cut me an input shaft to bolt a Lenco and Gear Vendor to my dual disc clutch Never got it done and I asked (and received) my money back.  So this becomes the second winter project.

Joel Fortin got his 98 TT GTS running and with problems he ran 8.7@168mph.
