For what’s it worth (free advice) I’ll give you my specs on my M6 Narrow body Challenger when I run 1/2 Mile and Mile events.
FRONT 275 40R-20.
Hot Day- 45psi cold.
Cool Day- 47psi cold.
REAR 275 40R-20. 32-34psi cold.
REAR 315 50R-17 M/T Et Street R Drag Radial. 27psi cold.
Remember too that Shift Sector in conjunction with 1320 video will be broadcasting the event both days live on YouTube and other world wide channels. Last year they mentioned some of the countries that were checking in like Poland etc.
This was the Me at Texas Mile three years ago.
Stock 707hp, 275 40R-20 Pirelli all seasons, Manual 6 not even hitting the big hole on the top end…
Today, the You- 90 more hp, lightning fast Auto trans, wider tires…
pos for the Horsepower.
pos for the Gear changes..
pos for the better Traction..
neg for the Aerodynamic drag.
neg for the increased Rolling Resistance..
neg for the local winds…
Not bad at all- I’d be pretty happy with that! Chin up. Last year we had phenomenal tailwind action too. It’s never one thing, it’s the combination of a lot of well thought out parts, driving skill, conditions and luck along with chiseling away at it.
Once again, I’d be happy with that.
Big bowl of Capt. Crunch and load the car and I’m out the door and down the road early tomorrow!
Excellent fun weekend! If you ever get a chance to do this, don't pass it up!!
Wife rode with me on every run but one. She's hooked big time. Met my goal, got everything back home safe & sound & Redeye is sleeping in the garage again.
