Well, I took the 'bird to KCIR last night for the first time(and hopefully not the last). Unfortunatly, I didn't run quick enough to get in the top 25(but I wasn't expecting to, either). Track was very grippy, wasn't expecting it so first lauch was at about 2500-3000. Hooked hard and bogged instantly. Ran a 15.6 at 92.xx mph. Let the car cool down for about an hour and staged again. This time I lauched around 5000 and dead hooked. Powershifted second and tried to powershift third but missed(stock shifter is pretty worn). Got it back in third and finished the run. Expecting a horrible run, my timeslip said [email protected] Seeing I ran better than my first run and had a missed shift, I was stoked that I could get a pretty good run. I hot lapped it and launched around 5000 again. Powershifted second but just did a quick shift to third and powershifted to fourth. I got what I was looking for: a 14 second timeslip. [email protected] to be exact. Obviously my car was heatsoaked on that run making me think if I could have pulled off a good shift on my second run I might have run a couple of tenths quicker and a mile or two faster. All runs were at 19 psi and worn out 225/60 street tires and mods listed in my sig. I went with my friend and his supercharged 2000 Mustant GT. He videorecorded my runs (actually just the first and last) so as soon as he gets them up on YouTube I'll put a link up. Overall was a good time and met some cool people there. I don't think there are a lot of T'Coupe owners around me but if there are, hit me up 'cause I'd love to go again especially with another 'bird. BTW, temp was mid 60's.

My timeslips are at home(I'm at work right now) but they were in the 2.1x range. I haven' heard from you in awhile. I was kind of following your progress. Here is a YouTube link to my 14sec run.

I want to get a fmic, skinnies and drag radials and see if I can break into the mid to low 14's. What size and brand of skinny wheels and tires were you using?

Nice video! I'm using center line 3.5inch on the front and basic 10 holes with 26x9 hoosier slicks on back.If you plan on using your drag radial only at the track, i would suggest using full slick instead.
right now i'm porting my big valve head and upper and lower intake. Im also on Stinger's list for the pimp.I have alot of work ahead but very confident that this will be one of the fastest tc next year (i hope).

Sounds good! I was originally on Stingers pimp list but I asked him to hold off on me. I wanted to see how well that system was going to work. I plan on getting one in the spring (if the waiting list ever goes down). I'm curios to see how well your A4LD holds up. I honestly think a turbo car with an auto would be faster than a stick car all things being equal. Especially a 4 speed auto. I know you suggested full slicks but launching a manual is harder on the rear end then with an auto. For my 8.8's sake, I'll probably stick with a drag radial. If I can get 1.9x 60' I'll be overjoyed.

A4ld is still running good! i am changing it to a c4 this winter.I wouldn't be scared to use a stock diff with manual (one of my friend ran mid ten's with a stock t5 and 8.8 on is mustang) plus if you want concistency. If you haven't played with your suspension, drag radial might not be good for you as they have tendency to spin with manual trans. If you really plan on using them, get a adjustable pinion snubber or do like i did, lower it as close to the differential as possible (1 to 1.5 inch) it works.You are right when your saying that auto is faster than manual,as manual have tendency to get your turbo to lose it's boost as soon as you step on the clutch, but auto suck as it's no fun to drive.
