Sorry Moss, long day at work. I'd say an 8.5 has you going in the right direction for sure. I'm thinking anywhere from 8.0-8.5 should be the goal. I think most of my older S class tunes are 8.4-8.5.

Im hoping that there wont be the 1 or 2 cars that are way faster than the rest.

Tried the syclone... Ran a 8.325 w it, mostly 8.358s though I think there are several cars capable of the 8.4 range.

Heading out of town for the weekend, won't be around the Xbone for a few days. I'll try to keep up on this thread and up date anything needing updated. Plenty of time to get your cars built and tuned up, as well as anyone still looking to join up. Still a few spots left!!

Today is deadline day so after building a few different cars I'm going to run with the Plymouth Prowler. The Dart I built had a significantly better 0-100 time but it didn't show up in my quarter mile times. I've no idea why!!!

Hey Moss. Thats cool with me if you wanna run with that. I think the deadline is just for people to sign up. Still a couple weeks for your car and tune. Up to you, I know there's alot of other comps going on. If you guys want to just start with the tune sharing as you get them done, I'll run them whenever there's a few to give a go.

The entry deadline date has passed, looks like we've got 7 signed up for this. I have the date for having your tune set for Aug 27th. If anybody gets something they're happy with before then, by all means post it up and we can start running them.

If theres anybody else that's still wants in, I don't see that being an issue as long as the tune is in by the 27th.

And as far as the Dart, for some reason forza has some weird thing where Dodges and Pontiacs are just slow. Makes no sense. 426 Hemi should be amazing.

Hey Zepp,

Well, with vacation coming up on Thursday (for a week in Hawaii...YEAH!!), I figured I'd need to get my first drag effort out there. Man, what a learning experience! I'm not expecting much, but it is a fun car. And I have to thank you for your drag tips in your Drag Tuning Walkthrough post. I'd have been totally lost without it!

My entry is a 1970 Buick GSX using the 5.9 V8. The original "bad to the bone" Buick!!! :-) At least it should be, but I don't know about my tune. :-)

Launch is at about 5,000 rpm...any higher and the tires are up in smoke! Let the tires chirp into a small wheelie, then get on the gas. I don't think it is quite at 8.5s though! But I love the car.

It is out there as "S Drag" with MSS Drag Comp in the description. I'll look forward to your feedback, Bud!

BTW: I tried an El Camino and a 2002 Corvette, both with the 5.9. I thought the Corvette would be my "secret weapon"! Hah! Neither of these were close to the Buick! It is funny, the Vette weighs less, with the same power, but just doesn't hook up like the Buick. Oh well! :-)

Thanks for hosting this!

Snowman

Regards,
Snowman

Have a great time, man!! And thank you for jumping in on this. I think its a good break from circuits. And I love drag racing, lol.

Anyway, I'm sure you'll do just fine. I'm very happy that there was at least a thing or 2 that has helped from my walkthrough thread. Again, thanks for signing up. Have a great vacation!

Not sure which one that is Zepp. If it comes with the Fast & Furious pack, that's the only pack I haven't bought.

I think it was a stand alone car for getting the fast not furious movie. Mine runs 8.3-8.4's, sounds cool. Like I said, no worries either way. Plenty of other rides to pick from.

It's all good man. I dont understand why, but I've found there's a few cars that historically were rockets but are complete dogs in this. I give you the Chevelle, '69 Camaro, '73 Super Duty T/A, well, tons of Dodges or Pontiacs. Haven't figured it out yet, but there's definitely a wall some cars hit with drag tuning.

As far as the comp goes, it's all in fun. Get ya away from runnin' in circles and chasin' ghosts, lol! Thanks for joining up man.

Well guys, we've got the rest of this week, August 27th, for finishing up our tunes. I believe we've got cars/tunes submitted by SnowmansDad1 - Buick GSX, Streethawk53 - Plymouth 'Cuda. Are you still running in the Prowler Moss?

Off topic sorta, have you guys got either a number you guys use on your "race" cars and or certain colors you prefer?

And still some time if anybody else wants to join up, 3 more will give us 10. Again, deadline for tune is August 27th.

What's going on fellas?! I guess it's getting to be that time. I say let's go for this coming Sunday at noon, eastern time (Ohio), have all tunes submitted along with any last minute entries. I still need to narrow down what I am going to run in this. Anyway, good luck in this and any other comps you're running.
