1/8 mile?

hey tonight was my first time running my is on the drag strip on 1/8 of a mile.. yes.. 1/8... but thats all we got here in mooresville, nc cause im just going here for school.

tonight my first run i ran a 10.15 second
second run was a 10.8 seconds cause i couldnt grab traction.. and laid drags the whole way...and i forgot to turn off traction control.
third run was 10.5 seconds i did the same thing but i remembered to turn off traction control.
last run fourth run was 10.12 seconds..

and my car is bone stock. no mods what so ever.. and i was just wondering did anyone try out 1/8 mile.. i know no one likes 1/8 mile.. but i was just wondering did i do okay?? and did anyone run 1/8 and if so could you post you're time. i'll post my time tickets up soon.

thank you.

My car is boosted so you can't get a good comparison but I ran the 1/8 in 7.5 @ 96mph. I live in Cabarrus County not far from Mooresville Drag Strip. I never go there though because its always way too busy.

Video of the pass

YouTube - Lexus IS300 vs 240sx

That was at Paigeland Drag Strip. That was also on my old setup. I should trap +100mph easy now. If you stick around till the end of the year. There is a 1/4 strip being built next to Lowe's Motor Speedway. 10 minutes from my house... WOOT!

The clock starts when you start moving... reaction time only matters in bracket racing.
