went to the 1/4 mile track
 
went down the 1/4 mile for the first time with my car

.742 RT
2.157 60ft
14.751 @ 95.333mph(corrected from 2700ft altitude)

LACR is a pretty crappy track, but its the only one thats within reasonable distance for me.

had a 5-10mph head wind as well and long lines = more time for heatsoak

saw a 02 wrx with a FMIC, UP, DP, TBE, tein suspension with the edfc and EBC at 16psi that was running low 14's and 1.9 60ft times

saw some lightly modded evos pulling off high 14's-low 15's so i certainly dont feel bad about my times i ran the times i predicted i would run

i need to get better at driving, who was it that said "upgrade the driver, then upgrade the car"?

so do my times sound about right for the mods i have and the fact that i am a novice driver?

what everyone will ask you first is, how did you launch?

He probably slipped it easily. A 2.157 60 ft time isn't very good. But compared to what everybody else did there that night, that sounds pretty good to me.
