Alright, these are my mods:

DC Sport Race Header, Greddy Evo2 Exhaust, Injen Short Ram Intake, Tein S-techs, stock tires/rims.

The temperature was around 84 degrees and was pretty muggy out. My tire pressure was around 18-20. I did five runs, and this was my best:

R/T: .012
60: 2.363
330: 6.592
1/8: 10.087
MPH: 72.41
1000: 13.024
1/4: 15.483
MPH: 91.83

Any tips on how to improve?

Also what are you launching at? your 60 sucks and well so does the rest of it, stock you should be running better.

were you staying in vtec on every shift 6k+ rpms? i would probably launch a lil bit higher and have just a lil bit more psi in the tires since they are all seasons right? also, are you dropping the clutch or feathering it?

If your shifting where the power band cuts off, and not the "redline" or when the shift light blinks, you should be pulling a lot better than 15.4s.

How is your traction? Better wheels and atleast some better rubber would help out quite a bit.

I run 14.9 stock. Take your tire pressure down to about 20psi. Launch at 3300 to 3500 rpm. If you know how to power shift then do it. If not don't when you **** **** right before redline. 2.3 60ft time is not bad. Tires would help to. Hope this help

What is the idle 60' I need to be in? Also, I usually just drop the clutch, but when I did slowly let go of the clutch, my 60' was even worse.

Actually try not to **** before redline as this would make quite a mess, and also might break your concentration having a load in your pants while trying to drive.:rotfl:

wait i just noticed your from jersey. what part and what track to you go to? maybe i could come up there and drive your car for you.... you can drive me car to.

front tire psi = 30psi
rear tire psi = 40psi
launch rpm = 5500rpm
clutch= slip it to get traction, dont just dump it
1-2 shift rpm = 7800rpm-powershift
2-3-4 shift rpm = 8100rpm-powershift

with your mods you should do 14.0 at 100mph.

also get a bag of ice and put that on your intake manifold.

he had a pretty damn good reaction time. most i see are .3-.5 sec.
reaction time doesn't have anything to do with your 1/4 mile time... and isn't really used for anything but Bracket races...
