Close, 16.1 @ 83 something, 10 something 1/8. First ever run on the track. But it starting raining so I couldn't get in another run. With some practice I don't see a problem hitting in the low 15's. I went real easy through 1-2. Next time ill push it harder.

Look forward to seeing... I need to take mine to the track, I've never ran a manual transmission on a track, or ran a 1/4 track... So it will be different... I'm curious to what I can get and just to get some track time...

Footage, I'll get time slips up later.

I went easy through 1-2 gears because I wasn't sure how she would hook. I also realized that after the run I had left the ac on. By time I was lined up for a second run it started raining.

Yeah, couldn't hear his at all. It was turbocharged, but he also had a huge system in the trunk.

I wouldn't call it noise as much as I would beautiful music!

On normal street cars the AC doesn't really affect performance much. Now the drip from the AC on the starting line will really piss some people off though.

It affects the 3.8's pretty good. There is a noticeable difference with it on. Especially with our low power numbers.
