i ran couple times the other nite at ennis texas motorplex. my times where 16.0 and 15.8 (all the non-hondata rsx where running 16's, so its the track or the stock tires). question is my trap speed for the 15.8 was 87.31 mph and the 16.0 was 88.15. My speed was faster when i ran the 16.0, so wats the explanation for this? :dontknow:

you most likely had a better 60' time on the lower time which usually equates to a lower trap speed.

The more wheel spin I have at launch the higher my trap is. Less wheel spin = better 60ft but lower trap.

Most likely just your 60ft like everyone else has said.

If you were launching from and idle rev then anyones times will be slow too.

I dunno might be the track. I was running 15.2 stock and 14.8 with CAI with 19lb 17's on.

also if it was humid that will add some slick to the track.
Keep trying though. :thumbsup:
