    Indy Airstrip Attack

    Hey - Anyone here plan on going to this?

    https://indyairstripattack.com/

    My buddy is running his Evo 8 and I grabbed my tickets today. Seems like fun times.

    This was actually pretty cool. Got to see a lot of incredibly fast cars run as fast as possible.
    Apparently a group called "shift sector" promote these runs around the US.
    Must have been about 10-12 GTR's present, ~8 of them in the 200's.
    Folks are going for AWD and RWD records.
    Watched a yellow lamborghini huracan startup, drive right off the trailer and lay down 257MPH.

    All kinds of cool cars. Vipers, R8's, 911 Turbos, MK3/MK4 supras.

    My buddy ran his Evo8 immediately after him @138. He was just there because its a chance to see what the car can do... but it really looked comical after just watching 257 go by.

    Dynojet@~425hp range. 140MPH was his best run of the day.
    OEM Evo Gearing is a big limiter when it comes to top speed.

    Evo8 is OEM limited @7500RPM = 155mph.
    EvoX is OEM limited @7500RPM = 161mph

    Just not a lot of punch left once you start getting to the end of 5th with such a tall final drive.

    yea, i wish there was a manual 6 speed we could swap in to these cars. That is the last thing keeping my evo x from being perfect. That 5th gear just blows. anyone ever seen a manual non dual clutch 6 speed swap from anything into an evo x using a custom adapter plate or something?

    You can stretch all of the gears out with a shorter final drive.

    Here is a nice little table from Jack's Transmissions:

    And here is a top speed vs RPM for each gear calc:
