Congrats Kalle! Way to go bro! I just read about the full report just now; next time, make a vid or have else tape your start. Must look awesome, a full stock looking street car doing a 10 second run  Grin

Thanks Trond, currently at the cabin hoping to catch some lobsters for dinner. I rarely (never) bring my PC here.

Walter, the race report earlier in this thread is from Kjula two weekends before Tierp. As a matter of fact I did decide that the season was over after the Kjula race but after looking at the logs and especially the boost functions I decided to attend the Tierp race. I'm happy I did! The brand new Tierp arena is a MUST see for every race fan and to attend a pro event like Night of Fire is a really interesting experience. Take the tech inspection for one thing... 30-45 minutes per car. To take a street car to such a inspection was... challenging, but it passed.

On the first two runs I messed things up with too much tire pressure and not a good enough burn out. Thanks to Jyrki and Niklas we quickly identified the problems and on the next start I got the 10 sec run I have been trying to get for so many years. The 60ft was 1.47 and the rest of the run was a walk in the park so to say. The car is stable and it feels safe at high speed and I have 6 starts this season with 1.42 - 1.47 60ft. I disconnected the boost control and changed to a 14psi spring in the wastegate at Tierp, I'm also hitting the rev limiter 3 times and I shift gear like a old lady....

Looking at the video now I regret not turning the radio on Smiley

Thanks for that!
That is such a smooth pass! well done!
No excuses necessary I think, shifting and rpm's seem well executed I think, maybe only a little more startline rpm as it seems to drop rpm a bit more then ideal?
< 1.5 60ft's pfft, I can still only dream about that!
