Was that your best time? How many times did you run

If you want to improve your times you have to keep practicing. It's more than just bolting on parts and going faster. Getting off the line is the hardest part. I've seen cars lose so much time just launching out of the hole. Play around with tire pressure and different RPM's and see if you can improve!

well if you have a stock exhaust manifold thats hindering your exhaust and intake and even your tune from making the most of your engine... plus street tires dont get as good as grip on a track as slicks or drag radials...

plus wheel hop, engine mounts and/or track bar helps that... STS... lighter wheels... stripped interior... all of the fast cars have this stuff.. if you want your car to run fast thats the stuff you need to do...

yes... well I plan on getting a f2 header in a couple months. ( Paying for school sucks) hopefully that will put me in the 15's. 15's sound so much better. lol
