Default My first drag race!

Well, after two unsucessful tries at hitting the track I finally got my first real 1/8 run in last night.

RT - .341
60' - 2.208
330 - 6.044
MPH - 57.58
1/8 - 9.108
MPH - 82.83

I ended up running 6 races but only got a 9.1 again on the 6th. Beat 2 Mustangs, a PU with a V8, a Civic and an RX8. Got beat on the 6th race by another Civic. Desperately need some slicks on the rear. Couldn't get any traction at all.

should convert to a low 14 in the quarter. with your light weight and good rubber you should be able to get your 60' under 2 seconds, probably get you a mid 13

The times I ran last night were extremely close to what I ran on my one GTECH run that I made last year (got a ticket going 87 in a 55 so I only did one run). The GTECH showed 13.7 @ 107MPH in the quarter. My ticket came while I was coating in neutral after that run <G>.
