my day at the drag strip 1/8th mile
well today was the last day at winterport dragstrip , so i figured ive never done it before so what the hell.
the first 5 runs were time trials and the last run was a elimination bracket race for money and i lost to a 67 chevelle running 7.5s , i had about a 3.5 second headstart and he only beat me by a hair. track was 1/8th mile.
6th run , bracket race elimination
reaction: 1.113 ( asleep at the wheel )
finish: 10.884 ( figure that )
not too bad for a 05 2.0 with exhaust and intake , 105k miles and bald front tires. my main problem was no traction in first gear , track was very cold and slick at the begining. and on my last run i hit the rev limiter shifting from 2nd to third , so i couldve done a split second better. but for my first time i think i did alright. it was really fun and very addictive and ill be doing it all the time next year.
oh yea , there werent really anytuners , mostly gassers and v8's and trucks. there was a toyota paseo auto that was running 11.8's , and a turbo civic with dual fart cans that only did a few passes but the quickest one i saw was a 10.
'03 Focus LX 5-speed 2.0 SPI [clap]
R/T - .747
60' - 2.577
330 - 7.450
MPH - 78.04
How the hell did you get to 78MPH in a spi in 1/8 mile? That def isnt right.
It was 61.29 MPH on the 1/8 mile. My bad... [dunno]
ok that make a lot more sence.
i live in maine too and i've been there several times but never run. I'd love to try next year if the focus hasn't exploded by then.
Hey was that at the winterport drags?
