r/t - .577
60' -2.723
1/8 e/t -11.825
1/8 mph -58.60
1/4 e/t -18.434
1/4 mph -75.16

1/8 mph -59.96
1/4 e/t -18.110

I am still using the D15b7 motor with the DX tranny. In a month or so I will be doing the miniME and getting my exhaust finally done all mandrel bent pipes. And getting a EX tranny.

But Overall I think I did a lot better this time around, I know I could have gotten a High 17 but the last run I caught a little water trying to avoid the burnout box and spun out a little on launch.

Till next time!!!

Don't worry about 60' times... It all matters who's ahead after 1/4 of a mile.:)

actually I really don't care who's ahead at the end, I am trying to see what my car can do until I do some major mod's to it.

So i know down the line when I get things installed I can see the increase of power and a quicker 1/4 e/t.

Compare my slips from Stock to majorly modded.

yeah I am gonna be getting the SI tranny soon. I can't wait. These long gears are just too long for my shifting habits.

ok, why so slow?

How are you driving?

Is the car warmed up?

Was is the track elevation?

Reason I'm asking, my bone stock DX nevber went slower than a 16.60, did a best of 16.44 it's first night.

The Way i am driving is trying to reach the power band on every shift which i thought was around 6k -

Not sure on the track elevation it's at LVMS-Las Vegas Motor Speedway

I am also driving a 4dr so I am not sure if that is much of a difference. W/ full interior.

:confused: :(

uhh, 60' is the most important part of the 1/4 mile. it is the biggest determining factor in your times...

Sorry never raced at a track... I didn't relize it was that important.

Not that im a drag guru but waht are you doing on the launch?
IMO just rev that sucker and soon as it turns green drop the clutch.

lose some weight and im sure that might help you , both core supports, jack, spare ect...

I ran (3) times again tonight and I keep getting the same times.

So hmm I think it's time for me to slap an exhaust on and a header.

And finally my miniMe swap.

hopefully i'll be in the 17's then haha.

but there is something weird with this track.

my boy in his dc with ls motor(built), ran 15's at a track in VA
came down here with same setup and ran 17's

he was really pissed.

I didn't think the elevation would have a 2 second difference.
