    Got back to the track yesterday. Switched from closed loop boost control to open to try to soften it up a little bit. I am pretty sure I was burning the clutch too much. Made some changes to the clutch tamer to slip the clutch less and was rewarded with a 1.68, 7.96 @ 87.01, 12.42 @ 111.88

    There might be a little more ET in taking more slip out. Or I could put some more boost in it. Not sure which one will make it faster with less likely hood of breaking something.

    I can't decide what I want to do for winter upgrades / maintenance. I think for upgrades I want to concentrate on data. I would like front wheel and drive shaft speed sensors, and an accelerometer.

    Made it to the 1/4 Sunday afternoon for TNT. First time I have been to the 1320 with the turbo. Same tune as last time but I bumped the boost cut and ignition cut up to more than I thought would be needed. I also bumped the main rev limiter up. After hearing a limiter was blamed for killing an engine not saving ok one.

    Pass one, on gate forgot to turn on controller was about a 13.3 @ 104. Second pass I missed second. 13.1 @ 109. Third pass it shook the tire and ran a 12.96 @ 109.38

    Great time at the track, it was kinda warm. 60 and 660 were off a little. Looking forward to going back on a cooler day. Glad to get into the 12's for the first time. Next time I hope to put it back on the 28's maybe I can get it to 60 better and get in the low 12's and a little more boost to get the 11.99 on pump 93?​ Click image for larger version  Name:	PXL_20221106_221536268_copy_768x1020.jpg Views:	11 Size:	140.8 KB ID:	1328595

    If self respect is valued on the color of my car my self respect can be bought for way less that $50k! I just thought the move the decimal was a clever counter offer. Car is already purple, what's the big deal about pink?
