The ever elusive 14s. At least you're a lot closer than me. With this altitude up here in utah, I have a full 3 seconds to cut off of my 4.6. :-\

All that means is you HAVE to go to the track again this year :D
I had that same problem in 01', running 15.0's. Kind of sucks, but atleast you know it should be able to get a 14.

What type of tires are you running? Looks like some sort of drag radial based on 2.1 60fts.


Good luck :)

:D Tires ... what tires? You must mean those 3mm thick rubber bands i have back there?Drag radials, farest thing from it, i do launch at 1800rpm. Just some wore out, el cheapo 225/60/16 street tires. Im pretty sure once if the temp/humidity was better, better tires, true duals, and definitely a SCT chip, id be well into the high 14s. But i definitely cant afford any of that right now. So once the temps drop im hoping to break 14s. Im just glad im running consistant, minus the first few runs that i didnt go aroudn the water trap.

My friend with car #383 which if i would've scanned the whole slips, shows times from 15.055-16.015. The car is a 89 CRX with the "Frankenstein" vtec swap. 10.1 compression, 5speed, vtec. On top end it leaves me, but he cant get out the whole like i can, gotta love the 2800 stall.

Damn, bet it would be great running there in December or January. 12 Feet above sea level. You got it made there pal.

Good air, traction and all it should really pull good numbers.

Good luck in your quest for the 14's. It won't be long.:)

Quickest solution then, get some fargin drag radials or MT's then you'd be there :D

Or you could be like me, and just remove your back seat and passenger seat. That will get you to the 14's!!! :D

Thanks for the motivation guys.

As for extra weight... i did remove about 70lbs of speakers/box/amp, tons of unnecessary tools, cleaning stuffs, paintball gun/supplies. If i wanted to, i could remove my trailer reciever. .... and left the 2 car seats in also... unoccupied:D (although my 3yr old loves to hear the exhaust.)

He doesn't need drag radials. He's cutting 2.1's on street tires, so he's obviously hooking up. For 90.5 - 91.5mph, the 1/4 time is right where it should be.

What do you mean by PI powered? Intake...Cams.... Heads? Or whole motor?
