Track horror story for me...

well, my buddy gave me a call, seeing if i wanted to roll ot the track, my car that slight missfire, but it wasnt too bad today, so i decided to go

we get there, get in line for tech, and the car wouldnt start, took me 10 minutes to get it started, it went through tech, and i hopped in the staging lanes, shut the car off, 10 minutes later, my lane was being called

car wouldnt start, took a total **** on me, no signs of life...then it just fired up, ran fine....wtf, of course, my lane was already closed, so i hop in the next ones, i was gonna run once, then park it, im just about to get, one car ahead of me, they close my lane, so i open the hood, shut it off and walk away

my friend found a buddy with a GN, having the same problems i did, so we tried to help him out, he had worse luck and had to trailer it home, but after about an hour of that, i went back to my car, as i get to my car, they call me up, it fired up, someone closed my hood for me, and i staged up, spun em through the water box, rolled to the lights

so im staged, waiting, lights come up, RPMs up, 3rd yellow, clutch, BOG BOG BOG, ran up through first, fell on its face at 3,500, 2nd, fell on its face at 4K, and couldnt get much past 4K

get my slip...first time at the track, so r/t and 60ft are downright horrible...as was the whole run

r/t: 1.214
60 ft: 2.815
1/8: 13.087 @ 54.13
1/4: 20.229 @ 69.06

to make matters worse, i had to run agains a 12 scond LS1, dude hammered me bad, and made me look even more like an ***

i got a list of things to go over with the car, so hopefully within a couple weeks, i can take it back, and get a REAL run in

I can attest to the first-time-at-track-terrible-reaction-time problem. My first time at the strip I was cutting better than one second reaction times. They were a lot better the second time I went. Don't loose heart, you'll get your tune figured out.

it wouldnt have been so bad if the car didnt have starting issues

im not discouraged about the 20 second time, or my r/t or 60ft, because it was my first run ever and the car had some issues, but the non-start is what really got to me

at least the first time butterflies are gone, and i know what the track is like

sounds sooo much like fuel delivery issues.. bogging, not revving/producing power past 4k ...

maybe its time for a fuel pump?

i did a 16.3 the first time with the tbird, i forget the 60ft and what not. by the end of the year i was doing a consistent 15.9 stock as a mofo.

did a 15.3 first run with the gst. the got some mods and did a 17.3, though that was in 55* weather, fog, 12psi(boost controller broke so it ran stock boost setting) and no traction through 2nd.

i cant wait till this summer to see what she does now.
