first time at track tonight

best reaction time was .574, averaged about .8 throughout night. Best run was at 17.145 with a .9 reaction time. Could had broke into the 16's if i got the better start. All in all, i'm pretty disappointed. i have a catback and UDP and was expecting to ATLEAST average high 16's. I averaged 17.25's all night.

are u stock?? the gas and your system can easily cost .1 - .2 of a second. nothing to be dissapointed about and from the looks u arent good at launching yet... with a solid launch, and emptier tank, and no system ur look at a 16.7 or so, id work on your launch a bit no braking is necessary
