Well as the title says I went to the track lastnight for the 1st time. This was my best time of the night. I was having a horrible time getting traction. Hopefully with better tires and alil more practice I can be in the 13's. Let me know what you guys think

R/T... .678
60'... 2.368
330... 6.280
1/8... 9.397
MPH...79.18
1000... 12.044
1/4... 14.254
MPH... 102.43

Good tires will help you out a lot, 13's shouldn't be a problem at all if you can lower your 60'
Nice first time out .

Try slipping the clutch instead of dumping it. You should be cutting at least a 2.1 60' with some more seat time, but not bad for the first time out :)

If you could get you 60 foot down to 2.1 (which isn't THAT hard, it just takes some practice) Your looking at 13.7 right their. Thats just being contricted in that 60 foot, where are you shifting? go ahead and shift her about 6450, or try it at least. Good luck man! Your going to see mid 13's very soon!

why would he want to shift at 6450? power drops after 6250 if im not mistaken.

does anyone have a MPH chart like...

i run from 100-105 in the Quarter Mile therefore if i had complete traction and a really low 60' time you should run this time...?

there is no chart that accounts for every car, maybe just a specific car. some cars have better top end speed then others and will trap at a higher speed.for instance a stock terminator usually runs Low 13's high 12's but will trap anywhere between 108-111 MPH. a modded s197 that runs low 13's and high12's will only trap about 104-107 MPH. traps are a good indicator on how well you will do from a roll.

Good question! I have no clue what any of these numbers mean or what is a good time or a bad time. Would love a web site that explained it all.

USA - I'm just excited for you that you got to run her at the track! :rockon

not bad times bro!! the next time you go you'll be in the 13's the 1rst time is just to get the hang of it. My first time i was around your times the WHOLE time then at the end of the day i said **** it i don't what im doin wrong. So i corrected it a little bit and got a [email protected] for my first day...your time is great for the first time ever at a track dude! Practice, practice, practice...just seat time
