First time at the track!

3 Days before I leave for college so I figured I'd push my car for once. Been dying to run at Raceway park, but every time they have an event I can run at, it either gets rained out or cancelled.


14.897 @95.03
:Intake, exhaust, header, cobb accessport, tbs
Wasn't really expecting too much since it was my first time at the track, but looking to improve for the future!

Any feedback is greatly appreciated

thanks man! and 14.8 is not that good in general with the mods I have, but at Raceway Park it's decent. At honda day this year 8ths were running on avg 15s so not too bad

Vtak hit so hard your cobb accessport fell off Anyways those r decent first time runs. Try to get your 60ft time under 2.3 and run 4th to limiter, don't shift to fifth.

Thanks man! I set the front two tires to around 25 PSI, the run before I ran a 15.0 and that was without lowering pressure so it helps a bit.

Wheelhop hit hard not vtec, stupid cobb fell off
How would i work on 60 ft time, just the launch? should i slip the clutch even more, how do I avoid that bad wheel hop?

Key to running fast is that 60ft time

More seat time is my advice. As for wheel hop issues preload your car using the e-brake method or get motor mounts. My car never hops anymore after the mounts.

I got a torque damper, but I'm aiming for boomba mounts eventually. Should I slip the clutch a bit more to spin the tires a bit more instead of hopping?
