blimy andrew... thats a standard car run at 13.8? Ive seen RX7s only pulling 14.7 on the strip. they must be doing something bad. makes my run look bad for 325bhp
I didn\'t think 13.8 was particularly good. Maybe too much reading on the US forums ! :rollin They seem to claim all sorts of 13s runs on standard 260(?)hp spec FDs. Am I being a touch on the gullible side then, in assuming that standard FDs should be in the mid-low 13s? :confused:
Quote from a site I was reading last night:
"Just for the record my bone stock FD ran 3 consecutive 13.5@105mph passes at Lebanon Valley Speedway in Lebanon, NY, right on the border of upstate NY and Mass. This was on stock rubber, no funny gas and about 3/8\\\'s tank of fuel. The best ET of the day was a email@example.com. This was achieved by going around the burnout box, dry scrubbing the tires, taching 4500-4700 and slipping the clutch for approx the first 50 feet or so and then releasing the clutch all the way. This resulted in 1.88 60\\\' times (yes it is possible), which was the key to the low ET. The 1-2 shift was done with a psuedo-powershift and the rest of the gear changes were done by lifting the throttle 75% between shifts. That was the key to the trap speed "
Are the yanks just more brutal on their cars, or just better at drag stripping them??
