    Got new personal best e.t.

    Went to test an tune Tuesday night. Was pretty good weather for it.

    Anyways, last time I went to the track i ran a 13.9 and I think at 103. Now I put 3.23's, lid, lca's, and some V6 coil springs and ran a 13.1 at 104.86 with a 1.9 60 ft. My original 60 was a 2.2 or 2.1. I was so ecstatic, i know its not all that quick but i was pretty impressed seeing as i only put a bit over $500 in the car and dropped 8 tenths and 2 or 3 tenths in my 60.

    I was really hoping to go back out and get a 12.9 because a cold front was coming through but i made a left back into the pits and heard clunk clunk clunk when i make slow left turns. All the suspension seems tight so im going to pop off the diff cover and take a gander.

    I think its got a 12.9 in it. I could still foot-brake it a little bit higher.

    Anyways im happy, but i want 12's now dammit!

    Very nice improvement. A lot of it had to do with you 1.9x 60 ft. That's a good launch on street tires. Those 3.23s helped to.

    Now let's hope you don't have diff problems.

    I ran a 14.285 at 105.72 mph, spinning like hell on street tires, 2.471 60'. I was very disappointed!!!! I know it has 12 second power, just got to get it to hook up. No money right now. I feel your pain.

    Thanks for the compliments guys! Doesn't 104 seem a little slow on the trap? I figured it would've have been more of a 106-107. Anyway, im still happy about it. Haven't had time to mess with the car to find out the clunk but i've got some time this afternoon.

    You are almost at 105 and for the mods you have I think your MPH is OK.
