http://forums.evolutionm.net/showthread.ph...&threadid=19954I went to the Dragway today (family of 4) and now I believe I hold the record for 60', ET, and MPH . I broke in the car very very mildly as instructed by Mitsu, I've always used 93 Mobil/ Shell/ Amoco fuel, I have 1000 miles on the OD, and everything else was untouched as it came from the factory. I made 5 runs but I will only show 4 (missed second gear on my third run, totally my fault, not the trans). Also as a side note, I was trying different launch techniques and shift points to find the sweet spots, so they won't be too consistant.
3rd run: missed second but still ran a [email protected] 100.34mph
My day at the track.
Best shift points: 6800-6900 rpm
Leave the air filter in the factory air box, lost mph with it out. (possibly too much air)
I never power-shifted just shifted quick and I short shifted the 1-2 at 6400-6600 for best 60'
Spray was on auto (manual through 4th did not help)
Beat up on a modded WRX (13.28 @106, his best), Cobra (high 13's), modded Civic Si (mid 14's- 15's), SVT truck, Camaro's, modded 240SX, etc. but got ate up by a 500hp (stock looking) beautiful blue Cobra (mid 12's @ 116+) and a SVT truck (low 12's @117, claimed to run 11.97 best).
For a reference, I have been in the Drag Racing scene for almost 19 years so this is my thing. If I pull a half dozen 1/4 mile racing tricks out of my sleeve (keeping it stock and no bolt on's), I know I could pull a 12.99 at 106-107mph or better out of my EVO. Unfortunately, I'm not really interested in doing that anytime soon because I would like to try my luck at local Solo II autocross events.
I also want to mention that 5 runs isn't enough to test what the EVO (4G63) may like or dislike on a Dragstrip. From my track experience, I just had a little head start. Good luck EVO lovers.
Oh by the way, I'm no light-weight, 6'3", 205lbs.
nuff said.. fugk the bs.. fugk the critics.. not bad for a car highly questioned and doubted by people who dont know wassup wit 4G63 power.. and which Shiv supposedly only dynoed at 180HP @ the wheels
Pruven Performance already got their EVO to run 12.59 @ 107.59 with minor bolt ons..
they dynoed theirs stock SAE corrected 223hp. and 238ft lbs of torque (vid below)
