What's uP? Well, here are a few a my vids from my runs yesterday. Keep in mind, cars here on Guam run about .5 second slower then they would in the states. I think I didn t do too bad for my first time running on a track. My buddy ran it and his time was a [email protected] I ran--- 16.04(x2), 16.12, 16.3(x3). Wasnt able to get time slips do to problems with printer. Will be running again on Dec. 30! Let me know what you think! :cheesy:

Powershifting was something new to me, I learned it last night actually. My buddy told me to try it out so I did. one of my 16.04 runs I p/s only between 3rd and 4th. The 15.8, he did it between 2nd/3rd and 3rd/4th. It helped out alot. I will be trying it with drag radials or slicks, a friend of mine told me I can borrow which ever set I want from him next time.
I was talking to a local guy, he ran 16.7 in his tC with only the Injen SRI setup. We're trying to post the rest of the vids from last night, I will post them when ready.

Hey, Chengy, I just noticed that you said " I own a SSM tc too.." in your last post. My tC is Azure Pearl. I get that alot at night, people think its silver. There are only 4 tc's that color on Guam. Too many silver, black, and white here. Check this pic out!

OiC I guess I didnt notice it in the vids because they really look like you do own an SSm tC hehe...well about the rpms, what rpms do you launch at???...If your rpms u launch at are different form mine (2.2k-2.4k rpms) then Id sure like to try which rpms u launched at since u had pretty good launches...Oh yeah powershifting frmo 1st-2nd is great also, you should try it because I think it helps more then normal shifts...

why would being in guam effect the times?
A combination of air temperature and moisture, among other things.

That makes sense but wasn't aware it would make that much of a difference...
Makes an uberhuginormously massive and utterly clear and unarguable difference.

j/k It's definitely a measureable difference. It's part of the reason why many people will notice that in colder/drier weather, particularly winter time up in the snow belt, their car has more power.

Absolutely. When it goes from about 90 degree and 90% humidity to 50 degrees and 10% humidity around here this time of year, it makes a very noticeable difference in pep and low-end acceleration.

If only you could take a spin in my car here right now; 29F and bone dry. I feel like my car's putting down almost 150 to the ground lately from this great (no, really!
) weather.

I almost don't want summer back.

Well it makes sense since cold air is denser than hot air, and more air goes into the engine but... certain parts of the car also works better in warmer temperatures like the tires and engine oil so I always thought it would just compensate and even out.. now I know



Edit: Just to avoid confusion... I'm not saying that warm tires and warm engine oil is better than a cold engine...
