15.8 not to shabby I think!

I went to the track today. heres what I ran



R/T .... .209
60'... 2.394
330... 6.630
1/8... 10.179
MPH... 69.44
1000... 13.255
1/4... 15.875
MPH... 85.44

It was my best run of the day and 2nd to the last run I made. I'm so happy w/ my times for what mods I have and how extremly hot it was today somewhere in the mid 90's so on a cooler day hahaha I know a few tenths can come off. My first run was was pretty good too 16.3 and my best reaction time of the day was .132 I was hopeing to run mid 15's but it was hot. I had to stick my head out the window after running down the track it was like a sonna in my car. Well tell me what you guys think about that time. Here is my mods Oh yeah my car weighed in at 2800 lb.s (there was a scale there cool huh!)

cone filter, 4-2-1 race header wrapped in header wrap, Magnaflow exhaust, FRPP plug wires, CF DF clutch, ported TB, SVT suspension kit, ES motor mount insert

Ok maybe I did'nt stress how hot the weather was it was hoT with a capital T not to mention the humidity too. I also need readjust the cam timeing too. Practice I got alot of practice in I ran over 25 times!. I was consistent too. 16.1's and 16.2's we started at 5:00 p.m. and did'nt stop till 7-7:30 ish there were'nt too many people so it was pretty much lap after lap of non stop car abuseing fun! my best time was made around 7 so it was starting to cool off though it was still hot.

Back in winter (Jan here in FL) I hit a 15.9 before my shorty shift, flex and new tires. I went back when the weather was warmer and hit 16.3s all night. FL sucks for racing between March and Sept.

Sure did it was my first time out there. I had a blast I want to go again but I'm going to wait to adjust my cams and also maybe some tires since I pretty much ate all the tread off the ones on the car lol.
