    First time at the track ever

    Hey guys, can you tell me if this is a good ET for my last and best run?

    I beat an 04 mustang cobra with 420 hp at the wheels because of my reaction time in this run.

    RT-----.1370
    60 ft-----2.1949
    330 ft-----5.8119
    1/8 ET-----8.7379
    1/8 MPH-----84.60
    1000' ET-----11.2271
    1000' MPH-----97.83
    1/4 ET-----13.3320
    1/4 MPH-----107.16

    Car is a M6 with stock hurst and short shaft. All I have done is HPP3, SLP Lid with k&n, Free ram air, and a Corsa Cat-back.

    I was always lighting the rears up a little bit on launch, i really don't know what i was launching at, i think a little less than 2 grand. I was shifting as hard as i could without powershifting, chirped in every gear, including 4th just a tiny bit. My friends at school were amazed I drove the car this good, as well as my shop teacher. I killed everyone from the school and the closest guy was in an STi 2005 running 13.9. I am 18 and a senior, my car also has low miles, 6,700.

    How the hell did you chirp 4th? I've only caught 3rd one time since I've had my car and I've had it for 2yrs.

    Shift faster? The car will only let my do it as fast as I can. Sorry, maybe I'm not getting something. I know it can be done, I've done it. First to second goes as quick as I can move my hand, second to third, the car will only let me do it so fast, there always seem to be a really short pause between the two. Its not like I don't practice, I street race when ever I get the chance. Maybe I'm doing something wrong? I'm sure I could do it if I didn't let of the gas between second and third. Does anyone else have this problem?

    it was an ok run.
    not trying to cause a riot, but the r/t was less than spectacular (which is what others are saying), the 60' was a bit on the high side.
    those two things are the race. anyway though not a bad first time at the track. get some sticky tires and run that thing into the low 13s, may even see a 12!

    with reaction time having nothing to do with et, it's decent withstanding the 60ft time. work on that and you'll see a 12 soon. also, post in et listing so i can add you to the list.

    Chirping gears only slows you down. Ya'll sound like a bunch of high schoolers. "My car can bark 3rd gear." Heck I used to do that in my old daily driver toyota truck.

    I can barely chirp 3rd with the 4.10 in my car. Then again in the rain I can spin in 4th and almost kill myself in the process.

    Nice times btw.

    I think the 13.19 for 1/4 is a good score, for the mods you have you should be at
    13.2-13.4 range.. get new gears, will loose power just a bit but gain acceleration.
    you should net at least .1 gain at track if you do that...
