A day at the drag

Postby Mavrik » Sun May 14, 2006 11:52 am

Alaska Raceway had their Test n Tune at the drag strip today so I took the Vibe out there and the wife of course ran her Legacy GT. I was suppose to meet my friend JC there with his Matrix and he was suppose to run against me. He never showed lol Well that had me teamed up against trucks and subarus. I did a total of 8 runs. 2 I did as solo runs as no one was staging up beside me. I raced my friend Alex with his 1997 Subaru Impreza Outback Sport with WRX engine/turbo swap. I didn't beat him obviously.

Here are my best times

2004 base Vibe 5spd with catback magnaflow exhaust and Injen cold air intake.

R/T .3209
60 ft 2.9020
330ft 7.5967
594ft 10.6498
1/8 ET 11.3326
1/8 MPH 65.90
1/4 ET 17.2359
1/4 MPH 82.72

Which was better then I was thinking I would do. I need to stop being lazy and get my unichip retuned and installed. I'm sure it would put me in the 15s easy... all the low end torque.

Of course a ton of Subarus and hondas out there. And those big old muscle beasts.

Pics to follow when they get uploaded. Also got some videos.

still did well. at least you drove down in style. that fusion vibe was dead SEXAY! lol

it's really a shame you didn't get to square up with the neon or some of the hondas, or your buddy's S-10. I think you'd have either beat them or it'd have been a very very close race!

Phil's Time slips (Base 5 spd, Injen CAI, Magnaflow exhaust). The first one they put the wrong #. He's #8457:

I'm working on uploading pics. there are a lot b/w both our cameras. i had a great time, finally got to beat Phil racing! lol. even if it was on a straight course vs twists and turns on a road course.

I ran A LOT today (car #8458), so i could work on my launch and try and figure out the whole timing thing. my best run was 13.9082 and the next after that was against a red WRX stg 2 and then some. last run of the day, i thought i'd lost, but i just squeaked by him (see second slip). This is a MAJOR improvement over last year's (car #8144) stock runs, my best at 15.0391 sec vs a Mustang.

Last Year (stock with gutted OEM uppipe):

Best run (gutted OEM uppipe, midpipe, downpipes and TDC protuned Stg 2):

Last run of the day (I JUST beat him. check out my reaction time. my best ever):

the vibe. too bad JC chickened out! would have been a great race! unfortunately, phil usually ran the same time i was also running so i couldn't get a lot of pics. i did get some vids, but i'll have to figure out how to d/l them and capture some pics from there too.

You two and your mountainous scenery

So if a GT with MT runs 16s/17s, my base auto would probably be upwords of 18 I'm thinking

phil has a base MT w/ CAI and magnaflow exhaust. running low 17.2's. auto i'd say probably high 17's to low 18's stock. with some mods, probably mid-high 17's. stock GT runs in the mid-high 16's i believe, but with a few mods, mid-high 15's. but vibegtcouple posted their time slips and they ran low 15's in their GT. only had cai and exhaust i think. i wish i had run my VGT before i got rid of it just to see. but once we get the unichip retuned and installed (if phil ever gets around to it) then i think he'll be high 16's in the base MT. he'd still whoop up on the trucks (most of them) and the little neons and the po-po car that was out there running mid 16's.

whats been done to your car? I bet you'd be in the 17s like I was.

I think the GTs would run 16s...

Paul (i believe) has cai, exhaust and some other add ons. basicly same as yours but AT. i'm sure he'd be in the 17's too.

Drunken, atleast you can do cool tricks in the snow and stuff The only tricks I can do is run into fire hydrants backwards.

NO, i had a GT and he had a base. that's why he never would race me in my VGT much less now. lol. too bad he'll race his buddy's WRX swap but not me. not that it would matter really, but still... not the point.

PHOTO OPP!!!! so next time, we're gonna race so i can get some pics of BOTH of us at the same time!!!!

don't worry mav, (no offense hope) but i like the way your car looks much better! also, when you need to haul a washer or something, you could have it home before she could call a friend with a truck to come help out!


so, when is the STI in the plans?

I had a base Vibe Auto with CAI and Exhaust and I was running a super slow 18's! Thats when I knew I needed new car!

Here are my 3 runs! one low 18 the rest high 18's.... close to 17 on 1st run...

Hey Trdvibe, I have not taken the G6 to the track.. Im waiting to get a CAI for it but only 1 out so far http://www.doctorspeed.com/pon....html I sent Injen an e-mail and they replied back asking if I was interested in letting them use my car to make one. Not sure cause they are about 2 hours away I would like to take it as soon as I get that. Maybe I could get my friends together to go soon for a before and after.

OUCH! they sure want a lot for that!

what kinda increases are they talking about?? i can't imagine it being all that much on the G6, not like on the vibes. i'm sure it'd sound cool though! lol

i want (WANT is the operative word here) to get a full TBE, intercooler, and lightweight racing rims and possibly better tires. however, i doubt that will happen any time soon unless i get some kind of SCREAMING deal (like practically free or i trade someone for them...)

Well according to Mr. Speed the stage 3 intake that he sells for $170 is the same as far as performance as the stage 4 that is $300.. He said its more for looks than performance to get the whole tubing. I believe the gains where around 10hp or 7 but not sure.
