Default 93 Thunderchicken SC kill coming soon

A guy that sits two spots over from me, and for some reason is big into Thunderchickens, is talking smack. He has a 97 V6 that was his Mom's and is now his, and he's buying a 93 SC Automatic today. He honestly thinks that a stock 93 SC with 210-215HP and an Automatic, weighing in at a minimum of 3500+ pounds will walk the dog on my car.Those cars with an automatic run high 15s to 16 flat! My best has been 14.7. He's a cool guy and a friend, but I may just have to school him on this one.He says he'll go to the track with me in a couple of weeks, so maybe I should go ahead and buy Stage 1 and make him feel even worse, hehe.



PT = Punishes Thunderchickens

Make sure there is a "friendly wager" on the race before you go. Perhaps enough to buy you Stage 1 maybe?[}]

Might want to check for Nitro Bottles if he's that confident.

What's your PT set up? Your running 14.7 1/4 miles w/o a stage 1, 5-Speed Manual?

Nah, he's just buying this car today and he's never even been in a car with Nitrous. He may try and pull a fast one between now and then and chip it or something, but it's all good.
When I ran 14.77 @ 95 (or was it 96?) I was basically stock. I had no rear seats, no spare, front tires at about 15PSI, no air filter, iced down the intake for about 40 minutes, and I reset the computer.My car's an Auto-Stick. The biggest problem I have is hooking up. I want to get something lightweight for a set of slicks, but I called my guy at Konig and the Helium wheels that weigh 10.8 pounds only come in 4 bolt patterns.Might have to break down and get a pair of Rota Slipstreams.

I might just have to sneak Stage 1 in on him before we run to make it a little more harsh, hehe.

Triplejack,
What launch technique did you use? My DC2 is basically stock with the exception of a K&N drop in right now. I am going to the track in a couple of weeks to see what it will run.
Did you try running with higher tire pressures and what were the results?
I'd be very pleased with 14.77 stock.

A set of Rota Slipstreams weigh about 12lbs in 15in and won't break the bank.

After trying many things, I found that the lower the PSI in the tires, the better it hooks, but only marginally.The stock Goodyears are just for S**** when it comes to racing, but I guess they aren't designed for that. I would like to get the Rotas and try some BGF G-Force Drag Radials on them.I preload the Torque Convertor to about 1200RPM at the tree, leave the Traction Control Off, and leave the tranny in AutoStick Mode. Some have said they do better with trac ON, but when I try it, it will brake the front tires when they start to spin, which has killed my 60' times even worse than what they are already. I think if I could hook up really good and get a sub-2 second 60' time I could make a 14.4-14.5 pass.

Yeah, you'd be in Stage 1 territory without Stage 1! When I go I'll be happy with anything in the sub 15 range on my first pass. Then I'll take it from there and make my adjustments.
Thanks for sharing.
