First trip to the 1/8th mile with the WRX
 
I could have launched harder but didn't want to break it.

Seem decent? It's the first time I have had this car at the track

Here was my best pass, launch control set to 4500, purposely slipping the clutch on launch. Best 60ft as well.

Cobb stage 2 OTS 93 octane map, catless DP, SPT cat back.

Nice, that time should improve s bit the more ya go as well. I've never gone but always wondered how I would fair.

Those are some pretty nice times... the R/T is almost perfect and the 60ft can come down a little. My best 60ft in this car is a 2.1

I don't get the 1/8th mile thing. Never did. Never will.:yawn:

It's half of a quarter mile.....Duh

Is that like half of an ice cream cone? Climbing half a mountain? Going half way to the moon? Running half the Indy 500? Half a race? I suppose it's good practice for the real thing. Still not getting it.:yawn::rolleyes:

Well, it's fun.

Also, it's 10 minutes from my house.

Finally, Racing is better than not racing.

Texas Motorplex is over an hour away from my house.

If the ice cream cone was 2 hours away I'd still drive 2 hours to get the whole thing.!Thumbs Up btw, I have 3 drag strips. 2hr 5min,1hr 54min,1hr 20min. Worth the drive.:cool: As long as your having fun that's what counts.
