I'm almost too embarrassed to show this, but I need the help. I need to know what's wrong.
Click here to watch Drag-Strip-Woes
Is it my launch?
Is it my shifting (which I know needs work)?
Is it the problem mentioned in the video?
IS IT EVERYTHING?
DO I JUST SUCK?
Please help. With the mods I have on my car and the list of modded cars I've beaten in short street races from a roll (WRX, 3000GT VR4, S2000, RX8, etc), I find it hard - VERY HARD - to believe that I have a 14 second car on my hands. I could be wrong here.
Here's my time slip:
Please help me.
Well first things first, your 60' time definitely needs some work. On stock tires you can definitely get to 2.0
What rpm's are you launching at? I've had success and several 2.0 60' launching at 2.5k-2.7k on stock tires.
Work on shifting quick, and practice which shift gives you the most trouble, for me its the 2-3 shift. I seem to miss that one the most.
So yeah, first thing is get that launch down, that will improve your time greatly.
I'm running about the same mods as you, CAI, test pipes, exhaust, plenum. I pulled a [email protected] a couple of weeks ago with a 2.1 60'
I wasnt able to hear the video at work, but at the end you say that the tach jumps to redline before each gear as you let out the clutch. Maybe you need to work on you pedalwork? Maybe release the clutch faster during shifting?
Best thing is a set of New tires that and go out in the country and practice launching your car and see what works best. Is your car and Auto or Manual? did you take the TCS off? There are a lot of things that could factor into your time being high. Was it also hot out I know my car could make it into the 13's but the best time i could pull the last time i went was a 14.0 but it was also 95deg out.
