    First runs this year

    Car is a 99 TA. Track was unprepped(cold too) and it was a pretty cool day for most part. DA for the day was +2000

    and before you guys ask, they did not have the 60ft timer on today which sucked cus i really coulda used it.

    1st run 13.38 @107 left at about 3000rpm and bogged a fair amount wasnt terrible though. shifted regular through all 4

    2nd run 13.32 @108 left at 3500ish rpm spun the entire 60ft, bit at top of 1st hit 2nd/3rd normal. powershifted to 4th

    3rd run 13.2@109 left at 3500rpm spun for most of 60ft, once it bit at top of 1st again i powershifted to 2nd , normal shift to 3rd, powershift to 4th.

    car has gone best of 13.0 at 107 (as an auto) but it was bouncing off the limiter to third gear so i was def robbed of my 12sec run. after that i threw in a 6spd and this was my second time ever being at the track with it as a stick.

    Mods are lid, ported TB,ls6 intake, mac mids, o/r y, cutout, 3.73s DR's t56 swap (still on stock a4 tune)

    i didnt really heat the dr's up too much, track wasnt holding for cars running slicks so i didnt even bother trying there.

    all in all i think it wasnt a bad day. i was really consistent and i know for a fact with that trap its got solid 12's and DA was not helping

    So what do you guys think?

    Trap speed is definatley there, by the sounds of it though you have bad 60's, what did you get on those?
    Does this mean you have 3.23's?

    yeah the trap speed is there, 109 is actually the best ive done but i feel like it has 110 in it if i powershift to 3rd, which i have yet to try.

    I dont know my 60ft times, they didnt have the timer on but i have a feeling they were in the neighborhood 2.1ish. I have 3.73s

    Decent times, you definitely can get into the 12's

    You def got 12s potential. With drag radials its not even a question, just need to get them to stick and shave .3-.4 right off your time

    If you start making much more power and do a few higher rpm clutch dumps and it grabs then you may want to think about a rearend. 6spd cars are hell on rearends. Good combo though, you should definitely be able to crack a 12.9 or so.

    Haha yeah i know. I try and slip it as much as possible but i know the rear still takes a good hit. Ive got a rear end girdle installed and keep the fluid fresh. Ive got a spare posi and gears if something happens but i dont like to think about it.

    Ill be going back to the track in a couple weeks and hopefully i can break 12's. just sucks cus its got the power, i think im gonna have to go ahead and do the drivermod.. haha
