I ran at 8psi with full interior and 2 amps and with 205/55/16 azenis all around with 26psi in the front tire pressure...i launched at aruond 3500 and just dropped the clutch and i really dont know how to feather the clutch all to well yet but thats something i wanna try next...i got in 3 runs which were real consistent and ill post all three...

1st run
R/T -- .7917
60ft -- 2.3181
1/4 ET -- 13.7869
1/4 MPH -- 103.69

2nd run
R/T -- .5819
60ft -- 2.3983
1/4 ET -- 13.7833
1/4 MPH -- 103.93

3rd run BEST
R/T -- .7642
60ft -- 2.2508
1/4 ET -- 13.7525
1/4 MPH -- 106.79

my 60ft was real crappy bc when i would shift from 1st to 2nd i would think its time to shift but it really wouldnt be because the tach would be off due to the tires spinning, i guess thats were learning how to feather the clutch will play a huge role...i cant post the actual slips bc i dont have access to a scanner here on campus at least i dont think i do...and does anyone know what kind of quarter mile my trap speeds should get me??...

very consistent number......good job.
consistant times, but not consistant runs. while they're good runs, 1/4 times are all about the 60'. when thats the same, and low, you get results. :thumbsup:

i did answer the pm you sent me...all i was told by the shop was that a testpipe would be best and for me to get rid of my restrictive hi-flow cat and thats what i did, i didnt know it was bad, honestly if that matters...

really? wouldnt feathering the clutch be better? just asking...well i cant afford slicks and even if money werent the issue i think my right axle/cv joint is going out which sucks big balls, does anyone know where i can get aftermarket axles from aside from driveshaftshop and also how much the stock axles are?...i may try drag radials like some nittos or something we'll see

Slicks are better than "feathering" street tires man. I have yet to hear of a broken axel yet, have you? Xcell, Mikey, Edo, JDkindle, etc... I dont think anyone has broken one.

Inprogress I was boosting 12 psi, but the car was running very rich, it needs fine tunning. Also last time the car was dynoed it was at 270 whp @ 9 psi, so my guesstimate is that at 12 psi shall be around 300 whp.
