Talking First Time Drag Racing

Just got back from Maplegrove raceway. Had a blast and the car did pretty good to. Best run was my first.
R/T .637(shitty I know)
60' 2.342
1/8 10.017 @70.59
1/4 15.524 @89.94

My second best and fastest was my last.
R/T .601
60' 2.426
1/8 [email protected]
1/4 [email protected]

My r/t was .380 on average for the other 4 runs but my 60' time was very poor as well as my 1/4 time. Overall im happy with it. Cobalt's first and only time going with me. Decided to sell in spring for something rwd.

Yeah a 15.5 for a Cobalt doesn't sound bad at all. Did you spin on those launches or just feather it? I wonder if you could get to low 15s with a perfect run stock.

Damn this makes me want to take my Fiero to the track when I get it running, soon enough

Tried to feather the launch alittle but still had huge wheelspin. Not to mention my best to runs had bad rt. If all would of worked out better should of been more like 15.2-15.3
