Do you have the A/C type adjustment or the gas pedal? I have the new gas pedal adjustment and it works fine.

just got back, what a night, started off bad went from 12.2 @109 110oct last time out to a 12.7 @ 103, did some tunning went to a 12.6 @ 106 then more [email protected] 108.5 then a last run going for the 11s 12.2 @ 109 back to where i was on 110 oct now with alkey and 93. another 4-8 passes and i will have the 11's plus i am sure a 90+ day was not helping me. jay and carmelo came i will not even say what happened to carmelo but i was not happy to see it. jay had some tunning issiues and i think his tire and verter is most of the problem, maybe better times next week if it is cooler.

also found out no matter what i crank the wastegate to i can not get more then 25psi???

i have the newest tt chip, i have had 3 now and all have been fine, i got a pm from eric telling me to try some thing out and it worked. great chips.

Carmelo's luck

took the car to Billy (Wed) for tunin and he got it on the bulls eye, the car was runnin beautiful all day on the street so i decided to drive it to Atco to have some fun on the new DRs, fill it up with 9 gallons of 116, did a medium burnout, staged the car with 8 lbs on the brake and whoomp the left rear tires came off, again! well, i had it towed to Mikey in Waterford and it may need all new set of hardened studs (L & R) and possibly left drum. again with all those dramas i'm still one lucky bastard coz it could have been worst, can you imagine if i didn't let go and maintained it WOT?

Hopefully you didnt hurt the paint. Do you have 1/2 inch studs in it?
