    Hey y'all. Meet our MS6 drag car.

    We have a couple goals with this car. This MS6 will be used for product development and testing, along with setting some records. We're after the fastest 1/4 mile time on the K04 first and foremost. Next year we plan on going full retard with it.

    Last night was this car's first debut at the strip... Hell, basically the first time the car has driven for more than pulls, since we picked it up. Best run was a 12.9 at 102mph. This was among many issues, but thanks to @Farhan@DM; it's in the 12's. The car doesn't have much done to it ATM powerwise, just a big ol' intake, DP and tune. Suspension has been tweaked more than anything.

    We've got a long road ahead of us, but after some passes we now have a baseline to improve upon. Few things to change out, and a bit to tweak.

    Stay tuned to this thread for more details on the car and our path into the 11's. Also post up your MS6 drag set-ups, and what you think we should do to reach our goals with this car.

    You have the 6062 now? You're going to pick on a little k04?

    You should come out next time. Get your car on the strip, too.

    This is me pushing you to meet your goals. Just like any good friend would; by belittling you till you man up.

    @alexwlwsn

    I can confirm this method. I've become slightly more of a man ever since I started talking to you guys.

    @alexwlwsn you still haven't hit the strip? At this rate, my 6 (with no engine) might be in the 11s before you...

    I've had a couple shakedown passes, nothing worth really advertising but I did write about it in my thread.

    TL;DR - Just wanted seat time even though it was a 90+ deg day. 12.1@124 first pass, and then serious signs of sticky death second pass so I packed up and went home, cleaned out my pump and we're running 100% again.

    Got the car sorted and getting the 60' times I wanted.

    These slips tell a story. Anybody else see why the slower launch and slower trap (breaking up at the end) made a quicker pass?

    And by the way, are these some sort of new, futuristic time slips? Technically by the date, you haven't even ran these times yet[emoji23]
