I ran a darn 15.2 at the track? At the time all I had done to the car was CAI and short shifter and I couldn't break the fourteens it was my first time at the track and I kept dumping the clutch cause that'd what I do on the street and it works! But not Ay the track! I got a lot more mods since then Full exhaust LT, midpipe and catback, rims and tires and radials on the back! getting 4:10 gears soon! And a bans tuner. Getting all around suspension done but I will take it to the track before that's done. Anyone have any idea about what times I should throw down

There no reason you should have run low 14s with just the CAI and short shifter. And there's no reason you shouldn't run mid 13s with your new mods. But you should really work on learning how to drive your car before you just throw mods at it. Practice launching at ~2,000rpm and slipping the clutch out so you don't spin so much. What was your 60' time?

60ft times could have been VERY bad, without a good 60ft time you may as well baby the car down the track cuz beating on it wont help matters.

Aim for 2.0 or better 60ft time then worry about shifting hard etc.

The 4.10 will help you a lot and like stated above 60ft time is what you should aim for. I ran a 13.2 on an auto 02 gt with bolt ons

What was your trap speed? Sometimes the trap can tell a lot, like if you have a lot more potential. Do you stop as soon as the 2nd light comes on (shallow stage)? Played with lowering air pressure in your tires for launch traction?

1/2 or more of the battle is in your launch and 60'.

Gsrguy- I have been practicing and I think it wAs just me going from straight street racing to track. It's a lot different. And I could only find one. Track slip I think the rest are in my car but the one I found I ran a 15.5 with a 2.4 60'. -_-
Venemous- what are all yur bolt ons? I would give my right nut to hit low 13's?
Spector- I only went once and didn't have a chance to play with tire pressure of any of that. I will though with the radials.
And hay guys thanks a lot for te help. Any tips on taking off to reduce spin or just tips period?

Paulford- sorry I may sound dumb but what you mean trap speed? And I'm not understanding what you mean about th "shallow stage?" when I went I just straight dumped the clutch and spun through 1st and 2nd.

Slip the clutch. Like taking off normally from a stop, but with more throttle. Modulate the throttle/clutch. How long have you been driving stick?

No I don't. Hopefully I can get some and a tuner and I will hopefully break into the 12's. I love the sound of it! There's no other exhaust like it! Only this car including the purchase price of it so far around 6200 bucks

Gotta keep your cool at the tree. Get your revs up and get ready. When the last light is yellow let the clutch out half way get rolling and by the time you've gone 1.5 carlengths you should be wide open. On 305 rubber you should be able to cut a 1.9 60' hell my buddy set a record for 275 micley street radials. 1.61 he ran 10.2 letting out at 3/4 track. (no cage) its his dd haha.

Yea the car came with some of the mods, is it a ws6? I have Griggs racing coils in the front and and koni yellows in the back (more stiffer) also have MM k member. Lol it allows more airflow and throttle response.
