I am now the maintainer of the current Quarter Mile List.

I took over from forum member Blacktree, who retired from his Quarter Mile List duties after more than one decade of service.
This is the previous list: http://www.fiero.nl/forum/Forum1/HTML/070670.html

The rules will remain mostly as per the status quo; I like how Blacktree ran the list.

***************THE RULES***************

1) You must offer proof of your claim.
A copy of the timeslip, or a photo/video of the run (with your car and the display board clearly visible), are both acceptable forms of proof. But "so-and-so saw it and can vouch for it" or "I raced a 12-second Mustang and kept up with him" is not.

2) Post your submission in this thread. This is important to maintain transparency with the rest of the Fiero community. I'm on the forum regularly enough, so I shouldn't miss any submissions. In general, do not send me emails or PMs regarding submissions... unless the thread has moved off the 1st page of the forum; that means I missed it.

3) Please provide some info regarding your car. You don't need to go into great detail unless you want, but you should at least provide the engine and transmission type (for example: 3800SC / 4T65E-HD). It would also be nice if you could tell us the body style of your Fiero (for example: '85 GT, '88 Formula, etc).

****************************************

Entries compliant with the proof requirements of RULE 1) are written in green text.

Entries written in regular (light gray) text have been grandfathered; they predate the implementation of the present proof requirements.
I will only accept new entries that are compliant with RULE 1).

Not a lot of quarter mile activity lately!

However, when my Fiero runs, I'll be taking it to the dragstrip.

I was wondering about "test-and-tune" days... people still drive "hard" during those events.

For tuning my Fiero, I'll need to do a series of pulls from idle to redline, probable in 2nd or 3rd gear.
My plan is to datalog the engine acceleration as I vary the timing.

Not sure how people might feel about the poor entertainment value of seeing a car get off the line like a normal street start...

Anyway... I may also find a desolate stretch of road for this.

Who cares what they think? Get your car tuned.

It would be interesting to organize the results into various categories such as 2.8 V6 times, 3800 times, SBC times, Duke times, Quad 4 times, etc. For instance i see no Ecotec times listed.

Biology says there are coded genetic signals in every cell, but we KNOW that no intelligence created life.

Well that's because you haven't done your swap yet!

As far as data sorting goes, it won't be optimal since the data entry wasn't exactly done with a standardized format.

That said, I could re-write the information in comma-separated-values format, with some loose classifications; then the data could easily be imported in a spreadsheet program and sorted as you wish. I wouldn't want to impose a fixed sorting by engine, because some folks (like myself) will want to see the list ordered by E.T.

Is that something you want me to do?

Jon, now that we have two quarter mile lists, BOTH lists need updating (by you, and by me) if someone has a new entry. What happens if the lists don't agree with each other anymore?

This is not something I see as reasonable...

I see the following three options as "reasonable":
1. I modify my list in the initial post to be in CSV format so that it can be sorted per the viewer's desires (E.T, MPH, Engine, etc), and you remove your list from this thread.
2. You become the designated quarter mile list guardian, and you create a new thread where you sort the entries the way you want (e.g. per engine type).
3. I continue with the status quo, and you remove your list from this thread.

Let me know which one you prefer.

Rafe, you're in the list now!

I looked in your build thread and I figured what turbo and transmission you are running; I felt like the extra information would be helpful to readers.

OK thanks!
I blew up the first turbo with a bad oïl feed 3 years ago.
I'm running a GT 3582 now. It spools a bit quicker.
Thanks for the listing, I'm really proud to be on it!

Regards
Rafe

When did 427 small blocks become available? I thought they were only big block. If it's a small block why put it in the front?

Big Block 427's are 4.250 x 3.750.
Small Block 427's are 4.125 x 4.000.

Some witchcraft is necessary to squeeze a 4" stroke into a traditional small block, but LS blocks can take that just fine... in fact GM built an LS 427 in the C6 Corvette ZO6.

I could start adding in the supplemental data (1/8 mile ET, MPH, 60 foot, whatever) for new timeslips I receive, but the legacy entries will remain devoid of this information.

I would also need to format things a little bit differently to present the information in a uniform manner, despite the entries differing in content.

Do you only have a 1/8 strip near you?

And it S.U.C.K.S. to break an axle that far from home.

Here's some wheel hop + traction compound + trying for a 1.7x sixty time

 
quote
The Dark Side of Will








The track prep was very good. One of the first guys I talked to before I made my first run said that traction was good.

There were only a couple of other street cars there... Two Hondas running in the 10.2 range. I was the fastest real street car there, although a couple of the obviously dedicated drag cars that showed up on trailers had plates. I think the fastest time I saw on the board was 5.0xx, but I only watched a fraction of the passes that evening.

I was working on both my launch technique and my clean-off spin technique. I overdid the clean off spins and had some minor wheel hop. That may have contributed to the CV spline failure. I had the clean off spin perfected for the 4th pass..., just the right RPM and clutch slip to get 1-2 full revolutions of the tires with no wheel hop.

By the time I made my 4th run, both tires and pavement were nice and sticky. I was getting used to the clutch and felt that I had the RPM and slip figured out to cut at least a 1.8 short time if not a 1.7. Obviously, there were other circumstances of which I was not aware. If I'd done the 1.7, I definitely would have gotten a 7.9.

I went to Icar at the Mirabel Airport today. It was a hot day, 28 °C at race hour!

Overall, it's about where I expected to be.

I'm in the "PONT" in the right lane.


The 60' time was not much better than the 2.106 60' best time I did with a stock 2.8 Fiero...

Launching at 3k RPM resulted in massive wheelspin, so I launched at about 2k instead. Still, I had to modulate the throttle through all of 1st gear; not enough traction to really floor the gas pedal in 1st.

I didn't try launching off idle; down that low, the turbo is completely dead.

Honest Don: if you create a 1/8 mile list, I'll submit my entry to your list.

What are you using for tires? I’m not sure I’m the best choice for maintaining a list; my online presence is somewhat irregular.

I presently have 215/60R14 BFGoodrich Radial T/A tires at all four corners on stock wheels.

It is in the plans to get bigger more fancy wheels/tires for the car. This will have a similar effect as a slightly taller final drive.

On the street the car hooks OK, considering that I usually launch off-idle. Also most road surfaces stick better than the rubberized surface of the dragstrip.

Of course, my impressions regarding traction may change when I crank up the boost.

********************************************************************************

I wasn't interested enough to run a 1/8 mile list myself; I was just saying that if you really wanted to, I'd submit my timeslip as a contribution to your list.

Not a 1/4 but I may as well post for posterity. Left lane.


87 SE. 2.8/TH125c.

Stock crank, stock rods, stock pistons, turbo, stock block, stock heads, stock cam, stock converter, lotsa stock stuff.

I decided to converted your time/mph with this Wallace Racing converter:
http://www.wallaceracing.com/et-conversion.php

Screenshot:


I inserted it into the list.
Since this is an estimated time, and not a verified time per the current requirements, it is indicated as a white "B-grade" run.

How much boost pressure?

Thanks! Comparing to slips with similar numbers, I think the wallace calc errs on the side of caution but hey, I'll take it.

As for pressure, I think around 14-15? I haven't looked at the logs yet.

I just fed your estimated 1/4 mile stats into the inverse operation pane:


The original mph was exactly recovered. This leads me to believe that Wallace uses unbiased conversion functions for the trap speed.

However, the original ET was not recovered. This suggests a pessimistic conversion function, for at least one of the directions.

Log says 16. The tach spikes are a new occurrence; even set off the rev limiter. I guess it’s something to work out over winter.

I'd hope that there's some sort of plausibility check, if an edge arrives at an unexpected time, and then outputs shut off.

Before sorting out my crank sensor, I had sync loss issues, and the engine didn't blow up, so I'm guessing that it wasn't sparking at BDC or anything like that.

Probably wiring/bad contacts are going to be a suspect in this investigation?

It's just your basic 8-pin HEI, so it really can't get too out of whack; I just have to poke around at it. It made the 17 mile trip back home without a hiccup, so there's that...
