Ride: The DEVEL XR6

Location: Perth
WA, Australia

Well ...I'm no longer a drag (or burnout) virgin :wink:

After paying 4 trips down to the Kwinana Motorplex ...I've gone from 15-16 sec times, to a PB of 14.73 which I pulled this past WED.

My 60ft times have dropped from 2.55 to 2.14 secs, terminal speed 153 Kph ...with room for more :wink:

What's worked for me:

Stock rims at 20 psi,
Stalled up to 3000 rpm on the line,
Slipped (not dropped) the clutch on launch,
Took revs out to 5500-5600 rpm between changes,
Hammered 3rd all the way to the line (easy enough with the DEV 5 cam)

I'm hoping for 14.5's on my next trip down :wink:

well done!

I take it you have an LSD?

My pb so far on stock set-up is a 15.852.

since putting an exhaust on the car and taking my traction aiding gas tank out, I can only get near 15.87 as I got clutch slippage last time :(
mines putting out 131.02 kw @ the wheels.



cheers Sambo

HAHA ...I think he was referring to himself mate ...an 'a**-miner' :P LOL

Yeah, that was my last run of the night ...and unfortunately I was up against an 11.38 sec charged Valiant, which took the shine off a little ...but far superior competition can sometimes pull the best out of you :wink:

That'll be the 1st and last season the DEVEL does with me :( ...but next season I may well be giving that Valiant a scare! :roll:

That's the one, owned and modded by the driver ...spent only $15,000 to hit 11's ...did the paintjob himself too 8-)

Could be a good match next season ...2 blown purple cars head-to-head :wink:
