    Hi guys,

    ok this is my problem: I have a 1994 EG6 sir2 with a b16a. Mods: CAI
    The first time we (me and my buddy) went to the dragstrip with the car it put down the best ET of 16.02, the second time (one month later) we went it put down 16.20 best ET. A mechanic said to us it is supposed to go in high -to mid- 15, and told us that the clutch was the problem. Recently we replaced the wornout clutch/pressure plate with an exedy stage one. Everything looked to be ok while running on the streets, spinning it tires in 1st and second gear like easily. But when we went to the strip last saturday its best ET was 16.60. we were running street tires at 20psi and launching between 5000-6000. Some fellow racers said it the timing but before removing the distributor we marked it, to put it back precisly where it used to be. Our Vtec worked fine!

    WHAT COULD BE OUR PROBLEM, PLEASE HELP!!

    Curacao siR2

    Uhmm....yeah, he went trought the water, before doing a burnout, does that lower the ET? so he just have to do the burnout without going throught the water?

    The water kills traction, and there's no need to do a burnout if you have street tires. Just spin em a little to get debris and small stones out of the treads.

    And with an open diff when you do your burnout you spin one, get thatone sticky, then when you launch you spin the other one because the one that spun on the burnout hooked.
