That must be a pretty slippery track. All the 60 foot times are pretty poor. You'll see 15.9's with a decent 60 foot. I think the 2.3 will probably be 2-3 tenths out on that.

Slippery wouldn't begin to describe that track lol. But yeah my 60 foot times are garbage. That guy in the 2.3 should have been well into the 15's (his best time 16.0) and me 15.9 (my best time 16.2). My car seems to be running a lot smoother since taking out those bosch iridiums. I am going to return to the track once I get my tach cluster in (so I know where I am launching) and try again.

Even though the other guy had a 2.3, you probably have a decent weight advantage. Try to aim for a 2.2-2.3 60 foot time. I bet you'll get your 15.9.

I had a Civic without a tach and went to the drag strip with it. It took some, practice.

Yeah 60FT times are my main goal of improving, I wasn't happy with those at all. Car is feeling a lot stronger than it was when I had it at the track, ditching those bosch irdiums for autolite ar103s really ironed out a lot of bugs. It felt like a dog the day I brought it to the track, I was surprised I even got a 16.2. My tach cluster should be here any day so definitely hitting up the track real soon.
