Like an oven.
With the 4.875 rear end you'll be way way way under 60mph at the top of second. You'll be forced to use 3rd and shifting too often at an Autox sucks. Every shift is basically going to cost you 0.5seconds
Yet, they set TTOD with this setup. Funny how that works, huh?With the 4.875 rear end you'll be way way way under 60mph at the top of second. You'll be forced to use 3rd and shifting too often at an Autox sucks. Every shift is basically going to cost you 0.5seconds
Unless you can easily do the whole course in 3rd because it has so much power. We chose this gearing for the track, where it rocks. San Diego ax courses tend to be very fast. Note how deep I got into 4th, about 80mph.With the 4.875 rear end you'll be way way way under 60mph at the top of second. You'll be forced to use 3rd and shifting too often at an Autox sucks.

Our data shows our best syncro box (OEM trans) shifts are about 150ms. During that time the car is decelerating. So ones setup must have better ratios so the cars stays closer to peak power everytime the drive demands max torque. So yeah, lots of gears work just fine if you can shift quick and the ratios allow a high rpm engine to stay in a narrow powerband. If you have enough torque to over power the available traction at all RPM like a Corvette on street tires, one gear does just fine.Umm a slow shift might take 1/2 second. Decent ones are like 1/2 of that.
Having said that, they don't cost in course time, what it took to shift. Since you are still moving at the time.
Yup, not enough room further back.Nice work as always Emilio!
I'm curious about the t-stat placement-- I assume it's due to spacial restrictions for the ITBs? Did you drill more than a 1/16" hole in the t-stat since it's so far away?
I'm planning out an Mtuned kit on my NB1, had a non-Mtuned reroute on an NA prior and was curious about temp differences w it isolated from the engine. I have measured w an infrared (not sure how accurate compared to actual water temp within) the OEM upper rad hose and found it's pretty consistent with minimal variance from the water neck to rad inlet-- if anything the t-stat cover has a cooler surface temp.
You're assuming the power variable is a constant to make the generalization. That would be misleading to anyone reading this that does not have a full understanding yet.Still, saving say 0.2 seconds on a shift is a good thing, however it does not save you 0.2 seconds on overall course time.
Just run the motion equations for autocross speeds and distances.
Planned for tomorrow afternoon but it's too hot. Hit 101° here today. Dyno bay faces the sun and it would be around 97° when we strap the first car down. Three cars to do, Sonny's SuperMiata for a 140whp race map. Mental, Johns C30-94 Rotrex BP6D that should put down around 320whp on pump gas and Taxi. Anyway, too hot so we rescheduled to next Tues AM as we're in no particular hurry. Wunderground forecasts 67° Tues am which sounds much better.Do you guys have a date/time lined up for the dyno yet?
No race cars this year. Focusing on giving rides in our 3 cars. The ND project car, Taxi and Deviate the 250whp K20 powered car. SuperMiata next weekend at Buttonwillow and Sonnmy is second in points.Sounds good.
Sounds like Sonny will be SPM'n it at Laguna for mmrls?
Or are you not having a race on Sunday this year?
