I went to Fomosa saturday cus the sheriff was sponsoring some night that provided free passes...I ran my car three times, keep in mind its my first time on a track...oh, and it was awesome, I had such a great time! I'm gonna try to go more often...

It was also hard for me to launch with my 6 puck...It seems like no matter how slow I feathered it it would still just grab it and give me HELLA wheel hop....my car is so hard to launch =\

anyway here ya go:

this was my best run

R/T: .821
60': 2.440
330: 6.576
1/8: 10.031
MPH: 71.09
1000: 12.990
1/4: 15.514
MPH: 89.09

The other two passes I ran 15.7's, in my opinion I was very dissapointed in my ability to launch the car...i will practice more and see if i cant get rid of that fuckin wheel hop...it was baddd

I am thinking about hitting the track for the first itme soon. I am very nervous and feel like I am going to look like an idiot, but what the hell, we have to learn sometime. I think those are good times, but I feel like with the mods you have you could do a little better. This is just how I feel, I could be wrong, but all I have is an I/E and I am hoping to pull at least a 15.6.

Peace:D and congrats.

thanks for the suggestions, i'll look into that when I talk to Patty at RaVers monday...


00BlackSI: running on a track is alot different than estimating times on the street....with I/E on an SI, wont really do much for you...it takes alot of money to even break into the 14's, and I know I coudlve done better but that wheel hop was terrible...i must have been losing a full second on the start...

GREAT RUNS!!!!

Congrats on your times :D

You can tell by your 60' time that you weren't getting traction. What were you launching at? My best run was a 15.538, and I launched at around 4-4500RPM. My 60' was a 2.3, but my trap speed was a 88.80. Judging by your higher trap speed, if you fix your launch, you'll be running low 15's.

Look at my slip, and compair it to yours. Its' all about the 60' times...

RT: 1.130 (Don't ask)
60': 2.376
330: 6.579
1/8: 10.046
MPH: 70.75
1000:13.006
1/4: 15.538
MPH: 88.80

All drag racers know wheel spin makes MPH You can take a car that at best can run a [email protected] then take it and jsut spin the wheels at the go and run a [email protected] the hookup eats power. For instance a buddy of mine has a Prelude best runs with a 2.2 60' consitently 14.1 but if he lights the tires for a 2.5 can run a [email protected]
