Since you guys missed it in my last thread..I'll make a whole thread about it. Enjoy.

Mid 14 second cars just aren't appealing to me as much as they used to be. But still, I want to see a vid where you get your ass handed to you by a Civic or something. It would just make it more interesting that way.

But, thanks for the vid. What type of camera do you use to record it all?

Cool. I do have a video where I got beat by a nitrous assisted Jetta that ran a 14.6 to my 14.6. He inched me out by like.. .004. And yeah..14 second cars are boring. Just someone asked for videos so I posted it.

It won't let me download the video either..

I prefer vids. They are more entertaining to watch. It's better than reading a thread post.

I'm sure if I was sucking on the bottle, I would have had a better time too ;).

But as far as a roll goes, you know what happened there

I beat him, that's right, I beat him...:evillol:

WTF are you talking about. I must've mistyped that or something :uhoh:

EDIT: Besides, that's what Kris told me I ran. So I'm really not so sure about that :sly:. Hmmm...now I'm beginning to wonder...

Truthfully, I even managed to bust out a few 18 sec passes too. I showed everyone what's up.

They don't call me Happy Valley's Finest for nothing :biggrin:

That's a pretty nice quality video. What kind of camera is that? Anyways, looks like you're getting about all you can get out of your car on that track. You didnt tear the tires off, but you didnt bog the car, so looks like you did a pretty good job of driving. Was that 2.17 your 60 ft? If so, then you had a better 60 ft then my first 60 ft of this racing season, lol. I had a 2.33 Sunday in my first time trial, lol.


I have a digi-cam that can record videos, but it doesn't have any sound. I may try and get somebody to use it on a run sometimes, but hearing the car would be one of the better parts of a video!

it's a sony dcr-hc30. not bad for $500. the videos are clearer then that..but then they're huge..so i lower the quality some for smaller files. it's weird..when i get 2.0 60's..i only run 14.6s..but with 2.1s..I get 14.5s. i guess it just has to do with where my rpms are when i come off the line.

That is kind of wierd, lol. Usually, a shaving a tenth in the 60' gets you a pretty considerable gain on top end.

$500? you could use that for supercharger fund.

whats the difference between a Mach1 and a GT? I just realized i dont know that. Also yeah thats kinda odd with your 60's. Normally a tenth of the 60FT drops you like 4 tenths on the 1/4.

Mach 1's have around 310bhp and can trap as low as 13.1, most never make it there but I've seen a few.

Mach 1s are rated at 305hp. They have a DOHC 4v V8 engine. Similar to the cobras..but without all the cool forged internals.

Dude you need an LS1 if you are cutting a good 60' and only seeing a mid 14 sec. pass. Shit even with a 2.2 sec. 60', not to mention hitting the rev limiter in 2nd, I still hit a 13.7 sec. 1/4 mile at over 104 mph. You should buy my car.

Nah, I'm content..ran a 14.3@98mph with a 2.3 60'. That means I could run in the 13s.
