Default 1st time at the track since boost

so I went to my local track (englishtown NJ) because tongiht was "cruise night" I normally don't go cause its all muscle cars and classics( which are cool dont get me wrong. but its the same thing every month lol) And they give you 1 free 1/4 mile pass. So i figured what the hell, i'll give it a shot. So here's my times

R/T=.381
60'=2.4
1/4=14.5
MPH=101

now that was with spinning most all of 1st and a little of 2nd gear. Lazy bastards didn't prep the track with a burnout box, or with the stickie launch pad.

My car is a 1.6 begi-s gt2560, 12psi, 4.10 torsen(installed yesterday)balled (balled?! You mean bald. Brain 8/13/08) *** tires, and the rest is in the sig. Not making excuses(well kinda) but i def. think i could do much better since that was my 1st pass since boost.

for ***** and giggles heres my stock time sheet.

R/T=.309
60'=2.7
1/4=17.1 <-LMAO
MPH=82

um...a "track" has turns.

I think I've cut faster 60's in a golf cart.

My first run with my miata since the turbo was a 14.615 at 97.55 mph with a 2.457 60'. My 2nd run was a 16.172 @ 91.59mph cause I launched it so hard the clutch slipped in 2nd, 3rd, and 4th. My 3rd run was a 14.920 at 99.34 mph with a 2.777 60'. I left the line like a bitch cause I still have the stock clutch in there, so until I put a clutch in it I can't say things like "If I had a clutch I'd run a 13.8." All I have is my mid 14...so for stock clutch and 7psi, I'll take it. Did you get your car weighed? I just wanna compare an NA to an NB since we have run almost the same timeslip.

Sorry...but while we're on the subject. You have a 91 in your signature with 230+ rwhp. What does your weight / time slip look like?

I cut a 2.4 60ft leaving at idle and not going WOT till 2d gear. You were seriously spinning or just bogged BAD. I was protecting my 1.6 rear, but you had the 1.8, so you should have ripped it up on the launch.
