    My first run EVER

    as you can see my time didn't print so we're guessing a 13.4@106 as my nose was to the back of the car in front of me. I had a terrible launch and didn't WOT untill 2nd gear. This was my first run ever so hopefully with a better launch and practice i can get the car to a 13.2 or so. Here's the slip.

    it's more like a high 13.5x at 104-106. I compared the numbers to my earlier runs and this is what they come out to

    here's my times from E-town tonight i was the left side all 3 times. Slips are in consecutive order from left to right. or just look at the times of the clock at the top lol. Through these runs we've discovered i have HUGE traction issues. It takes a few runs for the BFG KDW's to hook up and after that they still spin pretty bad. i'm hoping for very low 13's with a better track tire.

    That's odd that you don't keep the same car number.... Anyways, is your car an A4, cause it's sickingly consistant. Nice runs, especially for such a low trap speed.

    You should feel lucky to be around such awesome tracks. E Town is one of the best tracks out there. The only thing we have, in CA, that is close is Pomona Dragway, but it is only open like once a year.

    Anyways, autos are soo easy to launch it isn't even funny. You should do some bracket racing, as i'm sure you'll win a few trophies.

    I just got back from the track from running my GTO for the first time. It's really weird, your ft.-times and mine are almost spot on at each point, but the MPH is way different. You're significantly faster at the 1/8th, but mine's a little faster at the end of the 1/4.

    My best 1/8mph today was 81.99mph, best 1/4 was 104.14. My car is an M6, was about 80* today when I was running. Does your car shift right near the finish line?
