Went to the track with my SVT

Overall, not too shabby. I was hoping to get a 15.0-15.1, but i couldnt ditch the 2.3 60 ft's, that will make a big difference. Launching was pretty difficult. Got about 6 runs in...
Air was perfect, around 40 degrees and not humid. Perfect for racing. I have a CAI, tune, pulleys and rr motor mount.

60ft - 2.375
1/8 - 9.877
mph - 72.53
1/4 - 15.232
mph - 92.22

that run was against my friend with an Integra GSR, he pulled a 14.7 on that run

60ft - 2.382
1/8 - 9.922
mph - 71.67
1/4 - 15.286
mph - 91.49


60 ft - 2.458 ------poooooooor launch, that was when i just dumped the clutch. Doesnt work to well at all....
1/8 - 9.895
mph - 71.70
1/4 - 15.267
mph - 90.32


60ft - 2.43
1/8 - 9.968
mph -71.58
1/4 - 15.340
mph -91.40


there was a few other runs, but for some reason the clock didnt run so i never got a slip.

the thing that im happiest about is the trap speeds. Quite surprising. 92 mph is pretty high. when i crossed the line i was at the very very top of 3rd gear. i got the best times by not shifting.. just riding 3rd out and letting it get close to fuel cutoff

interesting...I might try that with the 5 speed...cuz I think the time it takes me shift to 4th is allowing me to lose a mph or 2. Good times tho bro

you could prolly flag a 14.7x or 14.8x with those mods if you get your r/t and 60's down

especially since the air is dry, it is cold out, and since he is on the east coast, his track is prolly below sea level or right at it.

Which track did you go to Spec3VR6? I usually go to Cecil County Dragway over in Rising Sun, MD.
