Post Re: a few questions about track times
I don't know exactly, but I wouldn't do it, if I were you. I would guess high 15s, to mid 16s. If you don't care what people think, and just want to do it for fun, go for it. There are a few things you can tweak, temporarily, to get better times, like raising the octane, and advancing the timing, just for that night.
There was a discussion about MX-3 vs. MX-6. It may take a little effort, but you should be able to find it in the search.

You'll probably be in the 17s with an automatic. My standard GS did mid 16s with the K8. Of course, the fun in drag racing comes when you are racing people very closely matched to you. Chances are there will be some sunfires or cavaliers.

If you do drag it, post your times, and tell Outlaw, in his thread. I'd really like to know what it is.
Check around this forum, and YouTube, for vs. races.
