Re: whats your 0-60 & 1/4 mile times?

Last time I raced my car,
I still had the boom box speaker setup in the rear hatch, and pulled off a 13.90.
I can dig out the 0-60 time, but it's raining right now, and I don't want to get wet, since all that stuff is in my garage.

Re: whats your 0-60 & 1/4 mile times?

Last time I was at the track I ran a 14.7-14.8 @ 96 i think. It was several years ago and it runs bettter now with the new injectors, tune up, etc. It pulled hard off the line but at about 1/2 to 2/3rd's track it just seemed like it fell on it's face and was waiting for it to be over. I may try to get some new numbers this year as it runs much better now. I have a G-tech pro and it gave me a 0-60 time of 6.0 seconds, the 1/4 mile times it gives me are pretty close to what the track says but are just a little quicker.

Re: whats your 0-60 & 1/4 mile times?

That thing is awesome looking. Love the black wheels. Especially the back ones where you can see the little bit of silver from the bead lock screws.

Re: whats your 0-60 & 1/4 mile times?

My red car has been 10.50@128 in the 1/4 and 2.25 second 0-60 calculated at http://www.wallaceracing.com/0-60_equation.php based on a best 1/8 mile time/speed of 6.69@103.35mph

Big E looks good and sits very nice, I like it in yellow

Some good info on performance meters here:

http://www.caranddriver.com/features..._work_-feature

I bought two new Escort G-timer GT-2s off ebay for $50 and $70 each. I'd say they are a lot better than guessing.
