N54 1/4 Time.



I was on used NT01's Cobb stage 2+ no meth. I am hooking my meth up putting NEW NT05's and getting a PTF eTune, and hoping to get 11's. I am just wondering how people break 117+ Speeds so easily :c


I was launching at 2500 RPMs in first gear and shifting at around 5k into second. I would spin in both first and second and shifting at 6kish on 2nd and 3rd gears.

Yeah I am Auto. I have launched at higher RPMs but I just spin... I try to tell myself to not engage the clutch so fast; then the green light drops and so does the clutch lol.

I've reached 2500 before when it was in 2nd gear. First gear yeah, might starting to spin. 2000rpm I've found to be good, 2500 I just spin all of 2nd gear

You need more power, some cold weather and more PSI to break those 117mph traps!

My car was dyno'd on a Dyno Dynamics roller at just under 300kW (400hp) on a quite warm day and I've trapped a best of 120mph with stock turbos. My best ETs were actually with only around 115-116 traps though.


Just out of curiosity, did you daily drive your NT01s? I'm really curious as to trying a set of daily driving as well as track duty as I only have 1 set of wheels but I'm curious as to the life. I don't care so much about noise etc.
