ffwturbo ^^^ Agreed, on street tires if you go thru the water box a little burn out after and out of the water box will help a little with traction. Dont go John force on your street tires. Just release your E brake when you feel the car pulling. Thats all you need.

focusmaniaczx3 ive found that a breif hazing does wonders for hooking on street tires at the track depending on what compound tire it is...

Buickboy the bog couldve been from traction control, ive read plenty of times it sucks and you cant get rid of it without pulling a fuse or a tune

TrueBlue02 Elevation, temp, track surface, tire compound... all of these make a huge difference in a drag race. You haven't mentioned them.

I assume stock tires and a crap track. If so then you will run slow, just physics.

There really was no way to go around it. It was in a dip in the pavement the whole width of the track before the start line...

Thanks for the info though!

focusmaniaczx3 elevation will play a factor. a trick i used to do was drive up to the mountains to pick up people and things. reset my ecu while im up there and let it re-learn all its mapping points and get used to the higher altitude. afterwards i would directly drive back down after it finished a drive cycle and go to the track. always seemed to make it go faster when i would directly take it back to low altitudes after coming from the mountains.

djo90 My friend jesse has a NA built celica GTS TRD. He ran 15.4 at that track and down in Arizona with more elevation, he ran 14.9. I think it's just our track
