first time out to the track with my 5.0
so i took the car out to the local 1/8th miles track tonight. im pretty pleased with the times. if i could have mustered a better 60' i would have dipped into the 8's.
car is a '91 gt with a typhoon upper/lower, E303 cam, CAI, full exhaust (bbk shorties, o/r H, and dumped flows), 3:73 gears, and a tremec 3550 with a Steeda Tri-axe on top. was running on street tires (mickey thompson sportsman S/R's) no burnout and street psi (30psi). was also florida, so temps were probably mid 80's and was raining all day so it was more dense.
best time slip of 3 passes was:
R/T - .178
60' - 2.22
330' - 6.13
1/8th ET - 9.26
1/8th MPH - 77.12
first pass was a 9.49 at 79 (spun i guess) and last pass was a 9.29 at 77.
im not looking to do any sticky tires or serious suspension mods for now as its my DD, so its 95% street driven anyway. i like going out there with the car exactly how it is when im driving it to work and such. just out there for fun, alot easier to spend $20 and do it out there than risk a wreckless driving ticket doing it out on the street.
any tips on getting the 60 down? i was sort of bringing the revs up to like 1500-2500 (not sure where, just blipping the throttle) and riding the clutch out quick then rolling into it hard. i figure next time out i can try raising my launch revs and riding the clutch out a little harder.
