This was my first time ever going to the drag strip. My friend recorded my first run, the other runs he missed because he was running his Supra. I will have the vid as soon as he sends it to me. Last run was the best, I wish he recorded it but seeing that I am hooked on it now I will have plenty more tries at it. I have cold-air intake, 2 1/4 inch cat-back exhaust, SVT UIM, SVT throttle body and a short shifter. I had 3 runs last night and they went in order like this.

The first 2 runs I red lighted which sucked but for my first time I thought I did pretty well. First run was against a 11 second Buick Grand National I don't now what happened to him because he slowed down but I got him.LOL I launched at 3,000rpm.

1/4 15.901 1/4 16.362
MPH 87.40 MPH 86.54

Next run I had 20psi Tire pressure but I screwed up on the 2-3 shift. I was bouncing off the rev limiter going into third. It was against a C4 Corvette with some mods. I was with him till 60ft. LOL

ME C4 Corvette Modded(Fast)
R/T .490 R/T .385

1/4 15.983 1/4 12.907
MPH 85.34 MPH 117.74

Last run was the best, unfortunately I ran by myself. There was a few cars in my lane behind me that didn't here the announcer call our lane. The car that was behind me that I was looking forward to racing was a Honda CRX with LS motor cold-air intake, exhaust and header. He did run after I did and I am proud to say he ran a 15.9XX. So the last race would of been close but I would have got him, oh well. Also for those who want to know I launched at 4,000 rpm for the last run and I didn't red light. LOL

R/T .627
60ft 2.380
330ft 6.628
1/8 10.185
MPH 69.61
1000 13.199
1/4 15.810
MPH 84.47

I am positive if I can get my 60 foot time down to a 2.3 I could've hit a 15.7 but better luck next time.
