nomoreavril i went yesterday, no new mods, ran crappy except for one run when i spun out, then wheel hopped a couple times , and for some reason ran my best in any car - 10.537

nomoreavril yeah you can, i do. the kids in the civics running 11s were on street tires spinning out in the box and i tried to help them by telling them to at least try to not do it..they wouldnt have any part of it. so i just continued beating them while going around the box.

Kicknzx3 depends on many things. his trap is about right, will increase a little bit with different tires. the cobalts gearing sucks too...

can u go around the waterpit at k-dale? been about a yr since i went there...dun remember.

nomoreavril well my focus ran 10.79 @ 64 mph

Ripped_06_ST Those aren't bad times... but those trap speeds were a little low weren't they???

I was told that the high trap speeds that my car was pulling in mean't that I had some decent ponies under the car... mievil (ryan) raced the ST Friday night and pulled in a 10.070 with HORRIBLE traction at a trap speed of like 74.05 MPH...

nomoreavril lol also, i think my tires get a little better after making a few runs, because the first few runs, whenever i shift into second, it would actually spin and i would jerk/slightly slide to the side a little. that felt like it was slowing me down. i think once it felt like it hopped going into second. i dont know if 'chirping' when switching gears is a bad thing or not, but it happens every time i shift into second(when racing)

nomoreavril not too much wheel hop actually. just for like a second. definately not as bad as my moms zx2.
09-24-2006 01:38 AM
Kicknzx3 you getting a lotta wheelhop?

don't need slicks... just some decent tires. i would mount and balance em for ya.

nomoreavril you know, i actually still have all of my steelies from my old cobalt in my garage. no tires for them though. possibly get some slicks or something? i probably wouldnt know how to use them properly lol.

i went to kennedale. i'll probably go again wednesday, try lowering the pressure in my tires a tad since i didnt do that last time, see if i can get my 60' down a smidge. i'm sure i could hit 10.4 at least. still new to 5 speeds.
