Carrera 4 1/4 times

Recommended Posts

2001 Carrera 4.

So yeah the 911 is definitely not geared for the 1/4 mile. And most of you are like "well duh, it's for a track". Right before you pass over the line you're basically topping out in 3rd so right at the last second you have to shift. I tried to keep it in third but it hit the fuel cutoff and I got a crappy et. I can't seem to get a decent 60' :(

Here are the runs I got, best one in bold:

60' 2.122

330 5.809

1/8 8.829

1000 11.422

1/4 13.592

MPH 101.61

60' 2.049

330 5.794

1/8 8.813

1000 11.400

1/4 13.565

MPH 101.61

60' 2.186

330 5.955

1/8 8.999

1000 11.617

1/4 13.774

MPH 103.36

Temp was about 80 degrees. Not sure of elevation, this was at MIR in Maryland. Pirelli P-Zero tires.

Not sure what I was launching at, the tree would go off as soon as you staged. I'd guess around 5500 rpms. Got severe wheel hop once. Then a guy walked up to me and said to launch at 2500. So I tried that but it bogged really bad and I got a 13.8

Couple runs down the track midway in 3rd gear I felt a slight hesitation, hard to explain but it was very slight, kinda like the traction control was kicking in.
