I was there only till 7:40PM tho... cuz of work at 8. My best run ( out of 2 ) was a 14.43 @ 98.18. Here's the slip... I need to work on my driving skills. I can prolly hit a 14.0 or high 13.9 if I would have stayed longer.

R/T .481
60' 2.364
330 6.263
1/8 9.424
MPH 77.37
1000 12.071
1/4 14.436
MPH 98.18

Nice run man. Let's see some real 13.9s. The last claimed 13.9 we never heard from that guy again. Either it was a hoax, or the srt-4 guys knocked him off.

MAN THAT WAS AWESOME. I ran my car first time ever tonight and I'm proud to have this slip.....Its not great but still first time come on! I mean for never running a car at all and only been driving a manual for about 3-4 months now!

rt = .418
60' = 2.414
330 = 6.433
1/8 = 9.674
MPH = 75.31
1000 = 12.393
1/4 = 14.816
MPH = 96.27

I actually had a few people come up and congratulate me when I was waiting to run again. I also when coming back infront of the crowd heard some nice compliments about my car. My favorite to hear though was YO THAT 14.8 WAS RUN BY A SATURN! LoL Anyway yea I agree with silver on needing to learn to drive better. I just need to nail launching. Oh and yea I tried to launch a little to agressivly second run and it was a 15.8 so..... lol yea I'll work on it PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT!

Nice numbers. I have yet to go to a track with my car (a little outta my way, but eventually it'll happen) or use that gtech thingy (buddy has one). I've seen people saying that they launch at around 2,000 to 2,500 RPM's, and I have been practicing with that but I still have the problem of when to slam it down as if you do it to soon, you bring back the wheel hop (damn overpowerful car) and to late is no good for time. But practice makes perfect, can't wait for someone to hit 13.9 again but not disappear this time.

Yea its far for me too. Hey redlin-er, do you ever go down E-Town?
As soon as I get my intake, say two weeks. We'll have to hook up with New2Boost and rip it up. It would have been nice to officially break 14.0 (listening Barry :confused: ) with the ScDyne header but I don't think I'll ever get it :mad: :mad: :mad:

So it's going to be work with just the intake and the other mod...

Didn't beat mine but I probably set the record for slowest time ever :)! It was like an 18 something I was pissed but I spun 1st gear and then 2nd gear didn't wanna grab. Engine just made noises at me, yea that SUCKED. So looks like I am waiting till like next saturday to go since I'll have off work and I'll be able to get there early. Anyone interested in going that day let me know we'll cruise down!

We have the 18 run if you wanna see the car NOT wanna move. I'm hoping to improve my launch this time. Just got the springs in and Driving it I noticed I can launch it better so we'll see
