1st 1/4 mile track day!!!

Well, I think I did ok for the first time at the track.

06 wrx cat-back invidia and spt intake
62 degrees F

Nice day, 1st time ever launching since owing the car in Aug of 06 so I needed some practice.

1st run. Rxn time .357, 60ft @ 2.294, 1/8 mile @ 9.630 1/4 mile 14.794 @ 95.693mph
2nd " " .128 @ 2.184 @ 9.540 14.729 @ 95.180mph
3rd .069 @ 2.095 @9.486 14.760@ 93.233 mph
4th .240 @ 1.990 @9.395 14.710@ 92.631 mph
5th .186 @1.978 @9.100 14.251@ 95.041 mph
6th .272 @1.988 @9.093 14.239 @ 95.274 mph

Was VERY scared of breaking something, but I didn't Decent times I think for somewhat babying the car. What do you think???? Z

Get those 60ft times down and you will see some better 1/4 mile times. I believe for every tenth you take off your 60ft, it will take 2 tenths off of your 1/4 mile.

Stock times won't say much (as you already know what they can do) as car ppl always do it....ie.... Road N Track, etc.....
Get a few mods together and then go out there..... IMO.

Agreed on getting your 60ft times down, this will make a big change, but congrats on your times. If it makes you feel any better the first time I took my car to the track I ran a 15.6 with a 2.5 60ft time people were at me, of course I didn't really launch the car it was just from idle. Keep working at it and you'll get the hang of it.
p.s. Since that time I have never had my car at a 1/4mi track only 1/8mi. and have not made a good run yet.

I've heard that the best first upgrade to a stock WRX is the exhaust, it'll get u pushing at least 70 more horse.

That seems like a stretch. I'd say 20-30. Needless to say, 20-30 is still a noticable increase.

yeah, at least a full turbo-back exhaust will get you that power, i have heard several times that just a Cat-Back will give you close to nothing...

I agree, if you're going to put on an exhaust kit...go with a turbo-back. I had a pretty descent run this past weekend.

2006 WRX tr
Helix cat-less downpipe
GReddy Ti-C cat-back
K&N drop-in filter

R/T............ .054
60'............ 1.833
1/4............ 13.56 @ 97.8 mph

A turboback on a 04 + without EM is bad. The ECU can't adjust for the TB like the 02-03 could.
06 Rex put the stock BPV back on, the car will run better.
I would read this Unabomber's Manifesto - Newbies & FAQs - NASIOC
