Post drag strip first timer - poor times
About the only thing good was my reaction times .. .052 and .125

60' were 2.637 and 2.395

ran a 15.809 @ 90.74
and 15.453 @ 91.89

im ok with it for my first 2 runs ever

but i know my car is good for high 14s so ill go back next week and try to improve

i think a 2 second 60' is the key

i get 1.9 with drag radials and slick many times

and the rare 1.8 60ft from time to time.. (for me i mean)

damn racecar honda's the 10 11 sec ones get 1.6 1.7 60ft dAMN HONDAS

invest in a set of drag radials best bang for the buck for bit better haul shots..

not bad for a V6 my best time all motor on my BP MX-3 was a 15.3@90

Well, more like what WAS done to it, it's kind of in pieces right now, lol, anyway...

There wasn't a whole lot done to be honest, 2.5" catback with high flow cat, make shift cold air intake with an apexi cone, gutted rear section of the car (seats, carpet, speakers, spare tire + jack etc), stage 1 Clutchmasters clutch, 2" drop and burning oil like a FIEND. Like I said, nothing special. It's allllllll about the 60ft though. I remember that night and I was hitting 2.2's and 2.3's all night long. Work on your launch, that is key. I believe Nd4SpdSe was there the night I pulled that 14.6 out of my a-- and he can testify to this :). The rest of the runs were 14.7's and a few 14.8's.
