Very dissapointing results at the Tucson Southwestern Int'l track:
Temperature: 74 F
Altitude: 3,100 ft.
ET... email@example.com mph
60' ...2,500 s.
Serious traction issues with all my launches, all within .1 sec. I tried everything, but I couldn't get a 60' under 2.5...this is a very demanding track as most of Subarus WRXs (some of them heavily modified) were in the mid-high 14's and low 15's. Raced a couple of them and they just destroy me on the first 60'...what saved the day was the fact that my MINI was faster than those Subarus on the last 1/8 mile.
Same WRXs were doing low mid 13s on the Phoenix track with no altitude/temperature/compound issues.
On top of that, my Gtech was showing some very optimistic results. On that firstname.lastname@example.org run showed a very optimistic 14.8@98 mph...
Next day I dynoed the car at APEX R Motorsports and I got a dissapointing 175.6 hp at the wheels. Yes, it was HOT, and the fan was blowing hot air at a room temperature of 90-95 degrees, but with the mods I have, I was expecting somewhere around 190hp at the wheels, wich translates to 215-220 at the flywheel. 175 whp should be around 200 fhp. I was mad.
Could the answer be that my DT 210 conversion was in fact a 190hp conversion? I'm pretty sure that my Madness CAI and my Borla race are giving no less than 10 whp altogether...
