1/8 Mile Times
So I finally made it to the strip, unfortunately it is only a 1/8 mile, but it still gave me an idea of where I'm at and how much having a passenger affects your acceleration.
I was running a consistent 10.6 with a a passenger-out came the passenger and spare (15" steelie).
My times went down to a low 10.4 to a high 10.3.
I ran exactly 20 times, so I figured the tree out and tried differnt techniques with my launch and auto shifting.
I found that brake boosting (holding in the gas and brake) at 2000rpm in L then releasing as soon as the first amber light goes off works the best, then running first out to redline, allowing the car to shift in L, then switching to D afterwards.
2 Best Runs
2.371 60 ft
6.747 330 ft
10.27 1/8 time
70.56 1/8 mph
2.338 60 ft
6.775 330 ft
10.38 1/8 time
69.22 1/8 mph
I think I did well for my first time to the track EVER!
I also think my times could be improved by removing my passenger seat and putting my oem 16" wheels with brand new tires on to reduce wheelspin in the start.
