First time to the Track EVER!

Well I went to the track for the first time this past Friday. I only ran twice and my times were almost identical.

The times were:

17.047 @ 82.55 MPH 60' was 2.624

17.153 @ 82.93 MPH 60' was 2.610

I was a little disappointed, I really wanted to at least be in the 16's.

I think, however, I could definitely do better with some practice on the launch. I was really surprised with how much traction I had. I was launching at around 3k, and the car was still bogging.




Let me know what you guys think!
