ok so we run a couple of solid 11.58's last Friday. it's getting close to where I want her to be
Good times Flo Rida!
Congratulations. You reaction of the tree looks great.
Fantastic effort mate, making VF owners proud.. Good work!
Yes these are affordable fun cars I'm impressed with the quarter mile times of the w375 & it responds well to further basic mods
Are your diff gears 3.41?
1.699 60 footer on one of the 11.58 runs. I've run 1.660 best 60 to date
No diff gears are stock A6 3:27 but with the drag radials on being 26inch diameter it changes the ratio to reduce it to around 3:38. The semi slicks i was running at the time were 25.7 inch dia which equates to 3:41 without having to change the diff gears. For the best quarter mile times in an A6 you want to be changing into 5th gear about 20 meters before the finish line
The story thus far ..
Awesome story Flo. Great to watch and hear about the progression. 12.8 is quick for stock 1.8t car, on street tyres. The cam knocked 0.8sec off the ET! Huge! Excellent results for this car with an unopened N/A V8. She's quick Mate!
Hey, the voiceover bloke missed his calling in radio. Haha.
Yes good result, I was expecting some more detail TBH. @426Cuda you have to unzip a few things in order to shove your bump stick in!
Fair call Monstar. Bit subjective. I guess I have always considered heads off or bottom end out as meaning opened. Old school...Bit different with the LS's. Definately unzipped!
wow. nice result flo rida. can you tell me what size the hoosier's are on the 18". i went to my local tyre supplier and was told to hard to fit drag radials with the big brakes on my magnum? also is it worth going the semi slick tyre route or just go straight to hoosiers?
Good Questions! Go directly to the hoosiers. My Hoosiers are 245/40-18 however they're not the same size as an aussie tyre. A normal 245/40r18 here is 8.5 inches wide with an external rolling diameter of 25.4inches. These are about 9.25 inches wide on 18 x 8.5 inch rims and have an external dia of 26 inches. I've done 3 meets on thesechoosiers and they still have almost all of their rubber still on. If you get hoosier DOT radials make sure it's the DR2 compound. This is the newer compound. Better tyre wear and stickier than the previous models.
You don't have to open a LS3 to put a cam in. The heads stay on unlike the ls2
PS These will clear 2 pot rear brembos on 18s
Cool. I didn't know that.
Haha I remember where the cam is! An "unopened" engine is an engine with stock internals.
The camshaft is the defining internal component that determines whether our engine is 330 or 525 hp.
@426Cuda (say what you want casually in a forum but) strictly speaking is better described as "cam-only" in relation to internal modifications. Whether heads come off or no, a cam-in-block type motor that has undergone a cam swap procedure is not "unopened" as to infer a stock motor.
LS Cam Swap is internal
