Default Drag strip

Went to the drag strip today for the 1st time of the summer.

meh is what i'm feeling

R/T= .091
60'= 2.276 <-suxor
330= 6.083
1/8th= 9.1
MPH= 83.58
1000= 11.715
1/4= 13.8
MPH= 106.99

Today wasn't a regular day, it was "cruise night"- free entry, free car show, and a 1 free pass down the track.

I totally think if i got 2 or more passes i woulda broke 12's

What track did you do this at? I think you're right, with a few more passes and a way better 60', you should hit the 12.9 mark. Seems like you have a decent setup in your sig.

Good r/t. Get some practice on a test and tune night. If you break 13.3 at 106mph then you'll be faster than an Aston Martin.

Englishtown NJ, and they don't really prep the track on cruise nights cause its not a competitive night.

my set up is even better now tho:
14psi, COPS, absurdflow 3" dp. better tune.

my trans is on its way out (making bad noises lol) i don't have launch control set up in MS and flat foot shifting isn't set up either.

I really think flatshift helps out on the strip. If I can get a 12.9 with my setup, so can you.
