Quarter mile...

Alright, I'm a complete noob. I didn't want to be a spectator anymore, I wanted to run. So, last night I went to the strip; it was Test and Tune night.

I only got to do one run due to me watching carefully how the other runners set up etc, and last night was packed. Nevertheless I was nervous, my heart started pumping faster each time it got closer for me to run and my legs were shaky lol. When it was my turn I was nervous like hell. I felt like the guy in charge of the tree lighted the tree to fast, he got me by surprise because he wasn't lighting the tree that soon when I was watching (or maybe it was just me and my nerves lol.)

Well when my run was finished I wanted to go again, to see how I would do on my second run but the line was to long and I didn't feel like waiting. So I'll be going back some other time and work on my time.

I did some newbie mistakes which more than likely killed me, which I won't be repeating. For example, I ran with 3/4 of a tank

I got a stock auto 2014 V6 (in other words slow 😝) I'm on street tires. When I ran, it was like 68° and I had my traction on (which should have been off) I also didn't weigh the car.

Since I got no idea how I did. I would like some feedback, pointers, etc. About what time should I even be running?

1. Remember when you are just looking for a good time RT does not matter, you can literally sit at the tree for 10 seconds after light turns green, it will not effect you ET at all.

2. Your times are actually good given it being a stock 3.7 on street tires and it being 68°, so you did a good job.

Yeah, I'm aware the RT does not affect my ET. So I wasn't to concerned on that when I got my slip. I just didn't know how I even did. For now I'll be focusing a bit more on my ET.

Seems to be on the slower side as far as MPH. 3.7's should generally trap between 98 - 102 stock. ET usually runs 14.3 - 13.8 stock.

Given, both of those depend on conditions.

FWIW, my 2014, 3.7 manual, with 2.73's and just a Steeda intake and tune ran a 13.6 @ 105.2.

You have to take in account of track prep, 3.7 stock auto with 2.73 gears and street tires.

I know the track was prepped again before I even ran. There were two runners who were about to crash; there was like a 30 min or so hold up.

If the ET is between what Ish said. I'll be aiming at least to get closer to 14.3 next time I go.

The important thing is just have fun. As you get more seat time things will improve.
