Went to dragstrip tonight
Wanted to get some trap speeds to guesstimate hp#'s. Right away I spotted a guy with an S2000, he was talking to some guys talking about how he had the head ported etc. I told him I had a turbo miata and asked him if he wanted to lineup with each other, he agee'd. Good thing cuz there were alot of very fast cars there and I hate to lineup against sub 10 sec ****.I only made two passes cuz it was very crowded. First time he missed 2nd and I smoked him by a huge amount. I have almost no experience doing this **** and the only time I did it was 2 years ago. here's the slip. I'm running a freshly transplanted 1.8L with the t28 sleeve bearing turbo from a FMII with BEGI's dp and small intercooler, 12psi link ecu Kumho ecsta mx tires with alot of rear camber full interior 28psi, basiclly drove it there and ran it.
Afterwards he was telling how he spun in first and missed 2nd but was catching me at the end, people he was so far behind me I don't know how he could say that he was closing on me so I asked if he wanted to try again, he bit. I saw on dll I had short shifted at 6500 the first pass so I ran it a little further the 2nd time and tried to shift quicker. I beat him by
.6293 I'll be posting video in a few days on youtube as soon as I can get my co-worker to help this old man with this computer ****. It's pretty funny as you can hear the peopl next to my wife laughing at the S200 after the anouncer had made like the miata didn't have a chance unless it had a bottle in it. Second pass he said something bout me having a supercharger
