    there's the timeslip..i'm on the right
    13.62 at 109 5280 ft above sea level
    with traction the car would have been into the mid 12's.








    three days later I rear ended someone and totaled the car :ph34r:

    what were the mods?

    and i don't know about mid 12's with traction, but definitly a lot lower. maybe 13.0-13.2.

    that was my second run... I got kicked from the track for no helmet or fire suit it had more in it for sure if i got my 60' down from a 2.4 to say a 1.8 thats a 13 flat there...thats assuming i didn't go any faster than 109...but with traction off the line my trap would have been higher too....i'm talking traction like slicks traction. i probably did close to the best I could on all season tires.

    mods were stock motor with a t3/t04e turbo at 14 pounds relative

    if insurance gives me the option of buying it back i will part it out.

    Sorry about the car, but if you part it... giver me a price quote on the Si rims, cause I need a second set.

    That sucks man. And just a hint if you leave on the 3rd yellow instead of the green you'll have better reaction times.

    reaction time has nothing to do with 1/4 mile elapsed time - he needs a better 60 ft time
