I have about the same setup as you and I ran a very similar time, So I guess I don't suck as bad at drag racing as I thought. I am wondering what a 15psi run would get me. Thanks for the video!

That is my home track. I can't wait to go back.

Your gay if you go to the drag strip without slicks.....or at least a *****.

Or you want your transmission and rear end intact after the event

I have never broken a transmission or rearend at the drag strip. This is with two Miatas over a 20 year period. At least 300 passes between them. Motors and axles a different story. Wheel hop from radials are not exactly easy on parts.

Edit: My current 5 speed is getting pretty 'tired', and will not last many more trips.

my car runs 11's on slicks no problem, yet wheel hop w/ street tires on the street shattered the **** out of one of my axles.

Just a matter of time. I keep thinking about going faster but they keep telling me I lack the proper equipment. Should I be offended when they say that?

Pretty Nice, My old iron never ran better than a 12.9 and that was with twice the cylinders and 3 times the displacement

Nice run.
