Do a tune up,set the timing,practice launching on a smooth deserted section of pavement and you should be able to run at least a 16.

i did miss a gear in 2/3's of the runs. Thats at least a half a second just trying to get it back into the right gear. And i was nervous as hell.

2/3s of the people that say and think they can drive find out where they actually stand when they start going to the strip......and turbo that bitch. running a 16 is still fun when your just learning how to drag race. but if your going to take it seriously then you need to be faster.
+1 your times will get better eventually, at least you admitted you ran a 17, most ******** will simply take a stab at where their car runs when they have never ran at a track, not to mention they make ridicolous claims, with some practice you should be able to easily hit 16's.

and i totally aggree. I was very nervous and did not perform as well as i should have. I am going again on a slower day so i can focus on my driving. I am going to try different launches (diff. rpms) And try different tire pressure. I can admit i ran 17s, but its ok with me because i had fun and i have room for improvement. I also am picking up a turbo kit from g2terror soon. I am also picking up a vtec motor tommarow for 100 and doing a mini me swap. Imo, working on cars is half the fun if not more. Ill have some new slips up soon with some better times. Hopefully some 15s. peace out nignogs
