1st drag attempt

had my first shot at a dragstrip with the mustang yesterday... went well, and i was pretty consistent, surprisingly.

Best time: 9.441

best R/T .545 (non-pro tree, cant remember the name)

best 60 ft. - 2.345 (2500-3k slip, w/ about 28lb of air in the tires.)

Best MPH - 82, something or other - i was told the mph was off, so im not really sure.

Will post all my numbers later on when i can get all my timeslips in-hand

How do those numbers look for what i have?

86 GT with 3.73's, electric fan, full interior(spare/jack included) no cats, with flowmasters. Im runnin Hankook k104's on 96 cobra wheels.

Cant figure out how to get a better 60ft... its buggin me to death. will post videos soon too.

Re: 1st drag attempt

just gotta practice and figure out what works on the 60ft. Testing different rpms etc etc to find the sweet spot. That time isnt to bad for that 60ft, that puts you around mid/low 14s depending~

I saw in one of the other threads it is a 1.56 conversion...and NHRA uses a 1.6 conversion.

Re: 1st drag attempt

Spector, thanks for teh advice... i jsut gotta get out and practice it some more - may be a few weeks before i try it again, just because im saving as much funds as i can for the autocross school ive got coming up at the end of the month... I was guestimating around 14.5-.8, but ive got to get the car to breathe better to get any quicker - its falling on its face about 4500 in 3rd, which is about 50-100 ft from the traps.

By the way, has anyone ever expressed their complete distaste for the stock t5 shifter? I think its the biggest piece of garbage ive ever used. Oh well.. save up for the MGW ive been wanting...

Brad, its ok, man... you busted plenty of *** yesterday - Hemi, what?

Videos!!!







Forgive the commentary, and the track. The local Dragstrip here is terrible, but does the job when you need it to - better to spend 12 bucks to run on it than take chances on the street...

Re: 1st drag attempt

Thanks, Monte... Not bad for a stock motor and small exhaust!

1996, Why so low? I usually run about 30-35 when i am out on the street... Been known to run more when i autocross - less sidewall flex

haha..

I really wanted to, but there wasn't any way I was gonna get there as I was still stuck with my parents for most of the day, and when I made it back home here, it was too late to even bother.

Re: 1st drag attempt

lol, why? just so you can beat my ***? maybe sometime later in april... money has gotten tight, so i have to conserve funds.

oh, and its on the last yellow on that particular tree...if you go on green, you'll be running .7-8's at least... just ask the other chris that was out there.
