    Went to the track...

    I went to the local track finally last night. There few only a handful of imports there, so they threw all the fwds in. so it was me, 4 hondas and a monte. Despite the horrible (.6-.9 something) reaction times, I won the "street import" division!! haha. the old girl is running pretty well, though I still have disturbing spark knock (or loud metallicy clanking sounds) when it's nailed and cranking out the rpms... and it still smokes badly.

    reaction: .9218 (!!!)
    60ft: 2.36
    1/8: 10.34
    1/8 mph: 68.44
    1000' et: 13.24
    1000' mph: 78.15

    damn, it's only a 1000' track... anybody know a rough 1/4' conversion? I need to take some more pics of my car. She spotlessly clean and I got a screen and xbox put in it. i'll get around to it someday. illumina... holla at ya boy!!

    btw, the monte was running a tiny bit quicker than I was, but those redlines will kill ya! (that's what I was trying to avoid with my horrendous r/t... *yeah, right*... man i gotta get those whey down. do you think i'd hit 12s with a better r/t??

    Re: Went to the track...

    Outside my jursidiction, sorry. As for what a 13.2 1000' is in the 1/4? Probably about a 15.4. The Eldo was a 14.73 1/4, 12.3 1000'. 14.87 1/4 and 12.52 1000'. Sorry. Just comparing with an old time slip. Though in mine, the speeds at the 1000' were both in the 75's. You might be 15.2 ish. Not too shabby.

    Re: Went to the track...

    15.2-15.4 seems almost right. i ran a 15.38 the last time i went to the track. that was without the fuel regulator.

    when i ran then, i also used my friends g-tech, and i posted a 0-60 time of 6.8 seconds.
