10.85 pass, then current record for a stock Corvette on drag
acceleration from your car?
To beat the manufacturer's spec?
To trounce the times published by the car magazines?
To run faster times at the drag strip?
To win stop-light battles?
that's you... a
good place to start is
improving your skill as a driver.
And you've come to the right site for some help in doing
is what I'm called on the web, and I'm here to help you achieve
your acceleration goals by guiding you through
an amateur driver who's invested eight years and 700+ drag strip
passes focused on demystifying the techniques for max acceleration
by severely traction-limited cars with manual-transmissions.
And along the way I'veset web
records in three different cars.
My work began from the premise that fully harnessing the potential
of powerful cars demands improving the driver component, the driver
mod. Difficult cars to drive well include such models
• Infiniti G-Series
My research and development platform has been a succession of
Corvette Z06s, all daily-drivers. My chosen platform has much in
common with the other very fast cars; they are hard to launch and
shift well without overwhelming traction.
Following the principle of modding-the-driver-not-the-car, I run
stock everything. Just sometimes swap the stock rear tires for drag
radials. And on my first two Z06s I sometimes ran with a cold-air
intake on the engine.
Through it all, I've focused on developing and refining techniques
that owners can use to beat the car magazines and the
manufacturer’s acceleration spec for the car, without spending
money to modify the engine or incurring the warranty risk.
I’ve developed and documented the techniques for getting the most
power transferred to the pavement and keeping it there through the
shifts. And I've done this without committing driver errors that
break transmissions and drive line parts. It's
also important to understand that: •
The techniques for max acceleration can be learned.
• They're highly repeatable with practice.
• They work whether the driver is 16 or 76.
So if you have the inclination, go ahead and make a few or many
passes at the drag strip. But first, study the techniques involved
and then practice, practice, practice to embed the methods in your
routines and muscle memory.
