Only a MM and a drop-in? What kind of gas... 91+ Oct? I'm assuming you had a fair amount of wheel spin... 90 mph trap speed indicates that the car should be capable of mid to low 15's IIRC (It's been awhile since I've drag raced so I may be off... correct me if I'm wrong)
Yes, I am at 93 octane. Forgot to mention that. Not too much wheel spin cause they had a great track prep and I've learned to launch around 2000 rpms. Anything higher than that I got either wheel hop or no traction.

This, cause I'm wondering that myself. I'm still fairly new to drag racing (did it a bunch in the past in my 05' hatch, but never got too into it till now) and don't know how that fits either. I know I need to work on my reaction time for sure and know how to do that, but how can I improve my 60' time? If I do that, can I dip more into the 15.5 range? Maybe without other mods or stickier tires???

Here is the slip from when me and David (Streetfocus) raced...I'm on the left:

David is pwning me pretty good, but at the end it's like he just doesn't have the top end to keep the pace.

My ultimate goal is to break 14's now. Was to break 15's but, I did that lol I have my suspension coming in today and future mods will be sts, exhaust, headers and tune...That's probably going to be it on this car. Are 14's feasible with those mods in mind?
I has FiST
