netdrgoon Bring it down here and you would eat me NA. It will be closer now. The drag radials arrived from Louisiana today.

I should pull a decent time at the track this saturday I think.

You still have room to improve your 60ft too.

I dunno how I did mine...but if you could get yours to do it...damn...I'll bet part of your 60ft is still the elevation. That would make sense.

My corrected (to elevation) time would be a 15.424@88.14mph.

Thx dude, finally some one understands elavation. on u.


firemanfrank: i have F2 intake, and i dont know what SVT's run up here.

... 16.50 with just an intake
= 15.41 Sea/Level

A 1/3 sec. improvement with an intake. Nice.

What intake do you use again?

zal you think thats bad? try driving a stock SPI at 7,000 ft, its SUCKS,

y2kpedo hey James, did u see that sohc turbo civic. if u didnít well he was only spinning the right wheel and he broke his tranny. hahaha. its funny cause when he was doing the little "burnout" he smoke the @#$% out of the right wheel. and then when it was time to launch, he was having so much wheel spin on only one tire. And the tranny just broke. He went up to 3rd gear with out even moving 20ft

I guess this is when a differential comes in handy

word. just so u guys know a friend of mine has a 97 mustang with 70mm TB, stage 2 clutch, stage 2 cams, exhaust, CAI, and his best was 14.8. there were also only like 1 or 2 10sec cars. most fast dragsters run 11-13.

for the NA 4cyl cars i was the one of fastes i think. but there was one rsx-s that runed a 15.51. spec v's, and GSR's were running like 16.1x


Oh and one more thing they called me the "Cosworth Focus!!!!!" this is due to two costum made stickers i have on my car.
