    Another first Timer at the track

    Today was the first time I have ever been to the track.
    Had a great time and have some results I would like to share and get some feedback on.

    rt --.490
    60'--2.045
    300'--5.726
    1/8--8.726
    mph 1/8--81.29
    1000--11.348
    1/4--13.562
    mph--101.82

    This was my best run today and was consistent with other clean runs.
    I had a couple at the beggining that I made mistakes on but the times overall were very consistant.

    BTW it is a 00 T/A A4, with 3.73's, Hptuners, and BFG DR's(315)
    Bout 80-85 degrees.

    Thats a good reaction time. Im sure you could do lower 13s if it was cooler outside though.

    I wondered if the temp had a little affect on it.
    Thanks for your input.

    I went to Red River Raceway about 20 minutes north of shreveport.
    Do you go to cherokee park?
    It is owned by the same folks I believe.

    I have been wanting to go to cherokee park but they are only open on Sundays. I would like to see what my car can do in the 1/4. On the eight my best so far with a Lid and Cutout and Nitto drags, its 8.70@83.70 with a 2.06 60 ft.

    yeah, too bad thats too far for me. But I don't know I might try to make it though. It would be my first time at a 1/4 mile track.

    What is the altitude at that track?

    Not sure excatly how high we are but it is usually around 250' around this area.
    I was expecting a little better.More around low 13's since I had the 3.73 put in but the car does have 100k miles on it so it's not a spring chicken anymore.
    Next year I am planning to do some serious engine and driveline work along with some forced induction,so until then I just do what I can.
