ok guys, i went to LACR on friday for that weekly drag racing and i have to say i was quite impressed w/ my car yet disappointed at the same time....

i had a total of 4 runs... and the best time i got was 16.154 ... however, the elevation was higher.. (it was in the moutain area) and i this guy told me to multiply the number by .9 something and it would give the normal elevation level time... and it comes out to, 15.770 to be exact...

seriously, with the mods i have, i think i should be running faster than 15.77.. no?? i mean, GTE ran 14.9??? maybe i just suck as shifting w/ my is.. i dunno....

however, w/ that 16.154, i beat a GSR turbo.... although hez 1/4 mile time was .010 seconds faster than mine, my reaction time was faster and i crossed the finish line faster so i won. and all these imports were running in the high 16's or low 17's... and they were modded too...

Anyone... can anyone give me advice on how to launch my car? i dunno what im doing wrong... i drop the clutch around 3k to 3200 rpms... im gonna try headint back to LACR( since thats like the only one near me).. to see if i can get it under 16's...

is it normal to have an IS MT w/ my mods to be running 16.154? (15.77)???

I think i could sneak away from studying, to get a few runs in. I"m pretty much done with my engine mods anyway, and the last time i raced I was all stock.

i drive a 99 cougar and my best at lacr was 15.8 only ran 3 times with bad launching, so i should be able to get deep into the 15's with some better launching. i went with a friend who has a charcoal gray is300 and he was getting 16's and so were 2 or 3 other is300's that he raced.

you should be able to get into the 15's if i can because im pretty even with is300's. my cars not stock and it took a lot of time and money just to even hang with an is300 8(.

me and my friend with the is300 might go to lacr again, but the next time i might be in the 14's.
