Lowering 60' times..........
Just got back from E-town. My car ran 13.7, my mods are turboback w/ upipe and ecutek flash. My 60' times are what killed me. I posted a 2.0 and 1.9. I wasnt happy with these at all. Id like to get them down to 1.7 or 1.8 and then i think my car will be able to run 13.5 or better. Any advice on lowering 60' times?

You need to be launching better, but that is easier said then done. During the launch does the RPMs drop at all? Did yu get any wheel spin? Also, what were your reaction times.

You could also try removing weight from your car, like spare tire, run 1/4 tank of gas, no windshield wiper fluid. I personally wouldn't go that far, but if you really want lower times it will help.

Quicker 1st to 2nd shifts will also help your 60 ft's. I want to say my time in my profile was with a similar 60 (1.95). I need to work on it too. :p
