***UPDATE*** First time to the track

Well I must say it was alot of fun, My first run was against my buddy in his 97 civic coupe i/h/e. My 1,2,3 run i had major wheel hop launching at 4k, so my last run I burnt off some rubber before hand and launched at 3 1/2k and it was real smooth and i broke 80 mph:p :D

practice driving my man, plastic SRI, ebay heatwraped header,catback, short shifter, timing at 16btdc. dead clutch and a blow to shit lower TQ mount :)


I did a [email protected] on a 2.43(best was a 2.31 but I bogged on that one :() 60ft. I also removed the jack and everything from the trunk. also had just the PS pump belt removed.

Im heading down wednesday since I just got the car runing for a test and tune sesion. I just installed an AEM cam gear and ES motor mounts.I also completley removed all components of AC and PS. ill let you know on the weight of that stuff. I plan on removing back seats too.

I think if I get it dialed in right ill be in the 15's no problem. i just need to have the cam gear dialed in first then the ignition and itll be good.


what rims/ tires are you running man? I have rota c8's with 205/40/16 ran them at 38psi cold LOL!! I will drop them to like 25psi and work my way up see what works. get your 60ft's down man practice launching more dude. Ihave the same car no reason you should be runing the same times if not better.
