    i did 4 runs total

    my very FIRST ever run i did a 16.49 with a .537 R/T.
    this run i did with a fat ass riding shot gun.

    my best was a 15.88 with a .574 R/T. Im so proud of my lude. it rana 15.8, and my friend with a 99 Si with full exaust, CAI, header, cam gears (tuned by myself (ass dyno style)), clutch, Short shifter; ran a best of 15.3 today. ONLY A HALF SECOND FASTER than my lude, which is NON VTEC. Holy shit. i have Short ram intake (dont have the full CAI on right now), header, cam gears, and a muffler (it was like that when i bought it), Short shift (home made (no i didnt just cut the shifter))

    My friend was like, "damn dude, i was expecting your car to run mid 16's." and i replied; "i was expecting low 17's..... 15.8!!!!!!!!!

    for my very first time at the track, i would say thats pretty good. So what if the time is not STUPID FAST.. but yea, im so happy, im not that slow! :D

    what your car run?

    I found out last night that my local track is both up hill and 1500 ft vs the normal 1320.

    :ph34r:

    one 15.1, the rest consistant 15.2's

    And the really funny part. I took everything out of my trunk (full size spare, my race supply box, ect) ran, got 15.2's, and on my last run, i threw the stuff back in my trunk, again ran a 15.2.

    I think the second 'can' was supposed to be 'have'. :)

    Joliet Raceway's 1/4 mile was just resurfaced... Perfectly flat. I'll finally have a car worth taking there this summer, too. :D

    Incredible!

    This happened not 2 minutes ago: I'm sitting here at work, and a guy comes in to meet with one of the big wigs. I get to talking with him about the weather, how it's going to be nice this weekend, and I mention how that's a good thing since I'm going to the Mazda Rev It Up event this weekend. It turns out he owns a 68 Mustang with 1178hp that he built himself that he takes to Joliet raceway every few months or so and runs high 7's. :eek: :D
