yea, the launch is where I suck the most unfortunately, haha.WBC said:Haha but then u could walk around with ur helmet and be proud. It's all gonna be in your launch. U should trap around 100~105. Good luck.
npwhite6s said:I'll probably say mid to low 14's. Just make sure and concentrate on your launch. Rev it to about 4500 rpm and feather it out. I drove my friend's 5th gen prelude a few times at the track and found this to be the best way to launch it. What kind of tires are you running?
hahaha, nope, not a good driver yet. I went last weekend, didn't have a good night at all. Couldn't get traction off the line to save myself. Best 60' was about 2.4 I think. I know I've done better than that. Best time in the end was 15.1, but my clutch was slipping most of second gear, and even shifting at 8000, I still dropped below vtec in third. Either way, it wasn't a good night. I couldn't get a good run in with or without spray.Nathan123 said:MANY tracks require helmets @13.99 or faster. But I wouldn't worry about that on your first time to the track.It's very likely you could run 13's in your car, but given your track experience, I'd say you run 14.2 or slower (w/ a 2.5 60'). But who knows.... maybe you are a good driver.
NO telling, thats what I thought when I went to KCIR to find out that all participants must have a helmet, even in my 17 second beastbob12345 said:for some reason I was thinking for anything 13.xx or faster you needed one, and 12.xx you needed a roll cage too, but I found out other wise.
Last summer when I ran in portland I ran a 14.9 on just a 55 shot and CAI. Then when I ran in phoenix a few weeks ago, I had everything in my sig, and could only pull out a 15.1. hmmmmm, sounds like a shitty night to me! haha, oh well, I've got the clutch in the garage, and I'm just waiting on the flywheel to come so I can put that in. I finally got some better tires, Ventus HR2s in 215. They're still not the greatest tires around, but they're a hell of a lot better than the shitty federals that were on there before.98Vtec said:i feel yah man, my car only ran 15.3 the time i took mine. I backed it up though at an eigth mile track running a 9.70 which calculates out to like a 15.0 or so. I'm a bad driver getting better lol..... I should be around like 14.6-7 with the power i am making.
Eh? Those aren't NHRA req's, but maybe more strict local track enforced rules. My car is legal to run 12's with only a helmet and a driveshaft loop (not something you guys need to worry about) according to NHRA.98Vtec said:under 13.00 you have to have helmet and 4 point roll cage
under 12.00 helmet and i think 9 point roll cage (might be too many points)
