Here's a dupe of a post I rattled off on my local-region board detailing my weekly sojourn to the track:
Threw on Unichip - went slower - but Rexstang is still a pimp!
No long posts tonight. I'm beat from running 4 times in 4 hours (gosh the lines were long and slow-moving tonight! Chris may be a jerk sometimes, but at least he keeps the lines moving! and depressed cuz' my car is SLOWER after having spent $500 on it. :-(
I ran my historic (to me at least 13.8 last weekend... I then installed my TurboXS Stage 2 Unichip (I'm basically a stage 2 + uppipe) and expected to at least equal my times.
The mid-range of the car was VASTLY improved with the installation of the Unichip. The acceleration also really smoothed out, and the car felt WAY faster on the butt-accelerometer.
The e.t. clocks didn't agree and showed my butt-dyno to be GROSSLY mis-calibrated.
I couldn't manage better than a 14.19 tonight - and get this... That pass I trapped at 93.22mph!! :-( I've run 96.96mph before... Sigh. Oh well.
The car just felt "fat" on the top end, no real rev. While driving home the car felt GREAT again and did feel stronger than without the chip, BUT...
I pulled the chip out as soon as I got home and went for some on-ramp blitzes and the car lost a bit of mid-range but the top end charge is BACK in spades.
I e-mailed TurboXS about this but I don't know what they'll be able to do without me being able to send them info from a dyno run... I'm not sure what to do at this point.
I wanted to run again tomorrow night at HRP without the chip to see if that was my problem however I believe it's Pro Gas tomorrow night. Sigh, I guess I'll have to wait until next week! :-(
Anyway - like I said - no long post this time lol so I'll let Rexstang tell you about FINALLY being the fastest driver of his own car and how V-Rod has been pumping a MAAAAAAD 11 pounds of boost into his motor with reckless abandon.
Aloha and good night all... Hope to see you at the track day tomorrow! (I'll be a spectator)
