    My First Time on a Drag Strip - Results

    Well, I finally made it to a real drag strip and brought home a few nice time slips....even ran past an experienced driver with a 2010 SS Camaro

    All of my 1/4 mile times were virtually identical, but some of the #'s along the way changed substantially. Can anyone give me a little info on what that is indicating? (My mid mph #s for example)

    My best run (of 5)
    RT 0.877 (I waited to see green....I was new )
    60ft 2.163
    330' 5.619
    MID MPH 84.11
    660' 8.468
    990' 10.841
    MPH 108.96
    1/4 12.987

    My worst run
    RT 0.290 (I launched once the last yellow had gone out..next time I'll launch when the last yellow comes on)
    60ft 2.135
    330' 5.649
    MID MPH 88.76
    660' 8.512
    990' 10.911
    MPH 108.43
    1/4 13.067

    The weather was a very cold 40-45 degrees with a setting sun that had just come out after a cloudy day, traction off the line was minimal and I wasn't hooking up until after hitting 2nd gear.

    I run a 2002 WS6 A4 with 315 nitto 555 (street) in the back, a lid, K&N, tune, headers, catted Y & a corsa exhuast. The car was empty but had extra weight from my 32/22mm Solid sway bars, STB, and 3pt SFCs.

    Yes, my only mods are what I've listed....the stock rear end is 3.23 in the WS6s if I remember right.

    I'd agree that with those mods you are running strong. Get that car to hook better and you might see yourself some mid-12 runs.

    Yep. About what I'd expect then. Get your 60 foot times down and your times will improve as 35th said.

    I guess I'll never know, by the time I hit the track again I plan to have a cam (roughly 228/228/114) and a torque converter.....I might run slightly faster times with those :-D
