Post by TnemmoCoN » Mon Apr 07, 2008 8:14 pm

Welp, I got to the track for the first time yesterday, and was very happy with my first run, besides the reaction time, lol. Unfortunately I didn't improve my time, even tho I did majorly improve my reaction time. Tell me what you guys think and what not. My third one, which is the one vid taped, is the only bracketed race. My cousin recorded me with my camera which isn't good quality, but you can see my launch and hear my shifting.

vidlink2
I don't know if the first one works or not, so I put the second one up in case it doesn't.

Mods:Iceman, Stiff MM, PS and A/C delete, and battery in trunk. I removed the spare and back seat as well. Oh and I have the longer geared tranny as well, unfortunately.
My car has 130,000 miles and a minorly messed up front end :cry:. Gonna fix it this month though :).

If thats your full mod list, thats pretty damn good for all that. 15.4@89 with a 2.4 60'? With some better tires, if you cut a 2.2 60', or maybe a 2.1 thats almost 14.9! Thats very good if your only mods are cheap mods!
2005 Neon SXT Black - SOLD
1998 Neon Coupe - SOLD
2004 Neon SRT-4 - 13.9@102
1995 Neon ACR NYG Sedan - 12.5:1 SOHC coming

wow! thanx, i didnt know it was that good! thats makes me feel a whole lot better, lol. did you watch the vid? because now that i watch the video, I know it would have helped to rev it a little higher, and feather it better, so that i dont bog the engine like i did.
