Default 1/4 mile times

I went out to Wichita International Raceway today and ran Yelojkt for the first time at the strip. My best time was...

16.63 @ 84.02mph
60 ft 2.5348
RT .5329
For being my first time to run at a dragstrip and it was really cool. Not as much fun as the autocross course but still a blast. I ran 14 runs and my 1/8 mile times were in the 10s and 11s. I cant wait to put on a K04.

i ran at an 1/8th mile track this weekend best time was 9.7@74.12mph. 60ft@2.3. on stock turbo no spray and all season high milage tires. my first run with the new chip and DV was a 10.2 on the 1/8th Ima buy some slicks for my next run and see what times I lay down as i spun through 1st and 2nd. these cars are really quick. I killed a subi and beat and rsx type s. got my time slips to prove it. I really want to go to a full 1/4 mile track to see what my time will be there.

p.s. anyone know where to find slicks for a good price?

I should take mine out and see what it'll do in a straight line; but I don't like doing all the tricks. hmm, we'll see.
