    Yes it was the V, I have never drag raced before either. (never had a car that was worth it) My buddy went for a ride with me. I wanted to go some more, but they said I had to wear a helmet from now on out.

    13.5 is when you need a helmet and 11.49 a cage. I have never heard of a track requiring a helmet at 13.99 but any way. You need to get back to the track and run it some more. Most are in the 13.2-13.5 stock 1st pass in my v I ran a 13.05 @ 106 then a 13.02 @ 106 changed lanes went 13.12@ 106 then 13.11. Then I went home a spent lots of $$$$ on it lol. Now it runs 11.97@113. So keep it up you'll get the hang of it. Ryan

    Re: Track Time

    You need to work on your launch. That will improve your 60' times and result in better 1/4 mile times. I take it you spun pretty good off the line? Also turn off T/C by holding the button for 10-15 seconds. That really doesn't "truly" turn off all torque nannies but is better than nothing.

    Here in KC you need a Helmet to even race and a cage at 10.

    Was your buddy in the car for the run??

    Re: Track Time

    Ya my buddy was in the car. this track apparently requires a helmet for anything under 14 sec. I put the car in competitive mode. But I couldn't get it to do a burn out. Is it even worth a burnout on street tires?(run flats) And I did spin a little I think off the line. Can't remember as I was having too much fun! My buddy's wife took a video, but haven't uploaded it yet.

    I allways do a burnout my 13.02@106 was on the stock runflats with 38 psi in them. Small burnout stage the car then roll in to the gas do not drop your foot on it. Just slowly roll in to the gas till the car starts to move then stomp it and hang on.

    Re: Track Time

    Is the 13:99 including the .65 reaction time? If so work on that 1st.

    Re: Track Time

    The rt is never counted in with the et. You could have a 4.5rt and still run a 10.36 turbo cars do it all the time on test and tune nights. They loose but still run a 10.36. So rt only counts if you want to win the race. Not the et.
