A Fanatic that went with us ran a 15.7* edit* in his ST stock on street tires with everything in it. I don't think he has subs though.

I am taking mine out next time though, I heard through the grapevine thats why I got crappy times even with my small mods. Intake, exhaust, tune.

I had a 1/2 tank of gas, my Infinity Basslink, which isn't too heavy, and still ran a 16.19 on street tires. I love these cars!

You should be in the 15's man with a 2.3....low 15's...I have seen it. His lowest time was 15.7, his highest was 16.1....he corrected me below.

ah,I thought you told me otherwise after your second run. Well, I'm not so depressed after all, ha....I went home early and sad for nothing. hahahahaha.

I'll take my crap out next time, and we should race, muwhahahaha.

I have lower/stiffer springs and struts and it won't be hot. Lets do it mr!!!!!!!!!!

Fun Ford Weekend, is it open racing or bracket?

I thought I did alright, but I know I could have shaved a few more tenths off. It was my first time pulling up to the tree, so I was a bit slow, .678 r/t with a .500 full tree using manual start (???) not sure what that means. My 60' time was 2.493, 1/8th mile at 10.446 @67.27 mph. I need a better reaction time, and a better launch, less weight (gas was 1/2 full) ahh, also, I was right at the end of third at the end of the 1/4, should I shift to fourth a bit early to finish in 4th? Gonna go up again soon and try to do better. Also, I have 40k miles and my clutch was a bit heated up going into 3rd and slipped a bit. Missed getting the power down a bit.

hahaha...sleepy r/t's

I got some wheel spin, but I launched at about 2000-2500 rpm.....chirped em' into 2nd though...

I'm going to give it a tune up, new plugs, wires, some other doo-dad's, then take it back on a night where I have more than 45 minutes to play. I just drove in, got inspected, then raced, got the time slip, and then staged and raced again, about 10 times....too bad I didn't show up until about 9, and the track closed at 10....

next time I'll fiddle with launch and shift rpms....stuff like that...
