im going to the track on thursday. anybody want to place some bets?
so you guys want to start placing your wages? not on what i run, on what the mpg will be for that tank!!
motor is a stock d16z6 from a civic ex with an ebay intake and a intake manifold spacer with the fitv blocked off. i dont know if ill be running open header or not, but i do have a completely stock civic cx exhaust, which is a pea shooter.
i will be driving up there with my normal rims tires, then swapping on the bfg drs while im there.
im looking to run a high 15... i know its not much but im also looking to get over 34.5mpg on the same tank. when i arrive at the track i will have a quarter tank of gas left in it since i will have traveled around 250 miles since the full tank fill up. anyway, those are my estimates and i could be totally off! keep in mind these will be quarter mile runs, probably 3-7 runs, NOT auto-x, auto-x consumes a lot more gas
don't waste your time or time will waste you
whell evrey time i race u didnt hear that i get bout 6-7 most 9 mpg less than fetherfooting. so for me that redline rev limmit shift point damn another slip. u didnt hear that eather i still get a respectable 20-21 mpg per tank. ok shuting up now b4 i spill any more droping clutch racing things. damnit not again.....:P
The best racing mileage I've ever seen was a VW Golf Diesel converted to Biodiesel, overboosted, and fuel-pumped like mad. The race was a series of Rally Races and transits which totalled about 100 miles. While racing -- RACING, mind you -- it averaged 35 MPG. The driver and co-drivers were the best guys to talk to. Their goal was to prove that SVO can race and keep up. They finished around the middle of the pack, but not bad for a front-drive Diesel. Man that thing sounded great taking off -- like a jet engine (but like the old 707s with the black smoke and everything). Check it out here:
