Rain_Racer is an unknown
only have an 1/8 mile track near me

so I went and dragged for the first time in my WRX.
In my bone stock wagon at a mere 500 elevation in 85 degree weather... I ran 10.08@71.28 as my best run on the 1/8th mile.

my track does not have timeslips but the board said 844 then 10.08 then 71.52 anyone have an idea what that first number is?
here are all of my runs (wife was kindly keeping score so some stats are missing):

1) 10.52
2) 10.52@68.3
3) 10.49@69.8
4) 950 -10.28
5) 755 - 10.12@71.28
6) 844 - 10.08@71.52
7) 801 - 10.34@68.2

I found it difficult to launch anywhere under 5500rpm and I found that I always shifted at 6800-7000, it just felt right

I finally understand what people mean when they say "the second gear problem"

also I came to another conclusion... I suck at drag racing.
