my wost loss was agianst a civic hatchback it ran [email protected]! and i ran the worst of the night , it was [email protected] i was expecting to run high 15's or low 16's but i was running at 17 in the first3 races but i guess it took me 3 times to get a little more used to it. and besides my reaction times wre horriblemy worst is 1.387 and my best is 1.114 thats really slow reaction times i gues its cuz im a pot head... and im new at dragging. any one else care to post their best 1/4 mile time.? how are all u other 240sx's doin at the tracks? oh yea besides my car is completely stock besides the high flow stillen air filter intake and a k&n breather and a 93 ka24de motor. more mods to come

Remember, your reaction time ( R/T ) does not count towards the E/T.. Yet THAT was HELLA slow. Did you fall asleep??

60' @ 1.97
1/8 mile @ 9.575
1/4 mile @ 14.899

Street Stock setup with Sumitomo HTR + 225/50/16

JWT ECU / ASP Underdrive Pulley / CntrForce DF / VLSD / Injen FULL CAI / NO FAN / Hi-FLOW type Cat / 2.5" exhaust straight thru with baffles.

WHAT am I forgetting? Hmmm..

I ran a 16.4 at 86mph with a .661 reaction time at LVMS (Vegas... high elevation) in a stock 93 RMS13 with full interior... not to mention it was my first time out at the track and I'm only 16

oh yeah, open differential

my car is stock

i ran 16.6 with my stock 240 , i only had a high flow stillen intake. my reaction time was terrible , 1.2 but i am sure i can do at least
16.1 or even a little bit better. what rpms do u guys shift @? i shifted at 6k my first few runs then i reved it to 5.8k i got better times when revving lower. my next time around im going to rev at 5.5k and i think that will get me a better E.T. it was my first time and im an amature drag racer. any tips!! i beat some hondas and acuras and a cougar.

never raced 1/4 but lowest 1/8 in the civic si was 9.704

umm lets see don't really know how you tree falls but i generally launch at the light above green

you have to account for the time it takes the engine to actually turn the wheels and spinage b/c you have to cross the laser before your time starts
