1st pass at the track
I went to the track and ran for the first time tonight, I dont think that I did to bad considering. I was just wondering what I should have been running with my mods that I have. A 2000TA, A4, with ram air, k&N filter, cut out air lid, SLP underpulley, Mizierre electric water pump 180 thermostat, edelbrock ceramic shorty headers, dual exhaust SLP loudmouth2 mufflers and a predator tune. Remember the car has 105500 milses on it with no rebuild yet. It was at Mid America Motorplex a 1/8 mile. I ran email@example.com MPH. 60ft was 2.258. My reaction time was pretty bad @ .634 gotta work on that, I was kinda nervous, first time jitters I guess. It was a hell of a rush tho. I was launching about 1500-1700RPM. So how is that, and is that about what it should be running? Does anyone else have a setup similar to this? Thanks

It is only an 1/8 track. We dont have a 1/4 around where I live anymore. The next closest one is at K.C. its like 150 miles away.

The weather was great around 75-70 degrees, only just a slight breeze.

i have a 2001 ta ws6 with 86,000 miles and i only have a slp lid, k&n, and slp loudmouth exhaust. I ran 8.9 last night with a 2.1 60ft and .59 react at 81mph. Just keep practicing, lowest time i have ran is an 8.6 but it was about 60 degree weather. Does your car hook up pretty well?

Yes it seemed to hook up very well or so I thought, everyone I went with said that it looked like it launched pretty well. Gonna go next Friday and see what I can get it to do then.
