Went to the track last night

Well I went to Atco speedway last night. It was my first time ever going to the track. My first run I ran a 15.3. I kept running 15.2's and 15.3's all night. Then I went up against my friends eclipse gst and ran my best time of 14.8@96.3mph. My mods are Essliner UDP, CAI, FC 65mmTB, FC ORP, SCT Tune and a STS.

my 60ft was 2.38. My friend also videotaped this run. My car sounds so mean and I chirped second and third gear. I think I can do better though possibly a 14.6, on the 14.8 run my tires spun a little bit off the line, and my 60ft wasnt that good.

Wow, sub 15sec, with just those bolt-on's? Not bad at all! Hopefully, I'll be right around there when I finish up with my SVT. I just ordered my VF Rear Mount, and hope to have the 65mmTB in a few months...

oh man, 2.3......theres definitely better times ahead. if you get them down to a 2.1-2.0, youll see some 14.5- 14.6's no problem. How are your tires? r u drop clutching or feathering it? that makes a difference too.
