1,3,5? im not familliar w/ that expression.

launch is tricky...but i find fastest times using these shiftpoints.

1-2: 6400
2-3: 6400
3-4: 6200

engages fine....i get the occasional crunch from 1-2...but thats cuz of operator error. ...but it goes into the gear

Ok. What I mean by 1,3,5 is only using the top 3 gears. so, it would be 1 -> 3 shift and then from 3 -> 5 shift instead of 1 -> 2 shift, then 2 -> 3 shift and so on and so on.

I only runs no spare and no jacks...but I might GUT the car next time @ the track, cuz Im goin for high 14's.


Which ever way you cut it, weight reduction is not considered a perfromance part as i was asked.

I dont have to say what weight reduction does to a car, its obvious, the more you take off(unsprung mass)the faster your car will go. For me theres a limit. I will only race at the track the way i would race on the street.

I dont have a spare or jack, nor do i have a back seat, however i do have all belts, amps,speakers,carpet, bars, floormats on a stock pulley with all acc. and both front seats.Oh i almost forgot, i wear my helmet at all times too.

At the tracks I have been to they will ask you to leave the staging lanes if you don't have a helmet or if you are wearing shorts.

Its obious you have alot of carbon build up on the top of your pistons to be running times like that on a near 300k engine.
Your compression must at least be 10 0:1.

I have been looking at the times posted and mine doesn't look right. I run my car yesterday with my friend's G-Tech out in the boonies and got

1)15.4 @ 96.6
2)15.41 @ 96.4
3)15.53 @ ??(I forget the speed)

Is it the g-tech that is messing with me or are those kind of right?

I'm all stock, too.
