Tonight was opening night for street legal at RMR.

My first run was a bye since I was the last one in my class and nobody to race.

I haven't done this since 1999 I think when I ran a 16.9 at 75 MPH. I was nervous!
As I pull to the lights and light the second light up, the tree started right away. There was no time for revving or nothing. As the second light came on I tried to get some revs going, then left on the third yellow and cut a .518 light. The car sputtered or something at the top of first and had a bit of wheel spin.

R/T: .518
60': 2.293
1/4: 15.035
MPH: 92.08

Second run was a time trial as well. Pulled up next to a 02 GTP 2 door. This time I cranked the boost up a bit. I forgot to say my vacuum line to my gauge touched the front manifold heat shield and was cut in two.

R/T: .420 Him: .232
60': 2.113 2.318
1/4: 14.546 15.806
MPH: 92.64 88.23

I had a lot of spin on that one. I bet I spun about 10 feet off the line.

Eliminations start. I dialed in a 14.41.

I pull next to a Baretta GTZ with a dial of 16.90

R/T: .260 Him:.620
60': 2.157 3.078
330: 7.307 7.728
1/8: 11.959 11.480
MPH: 50.38 64.93
1/4: 19.933 17.442
MPH: 58.35 83.66

Around the 60' mark my intake pipe blew off. It was pretty loud and scared me pretty good. It sounded like the impeller wheel had spun on the shaft or something in the tranny spun off or something. I backed out of it as you can see.

It was fun. I think I can get it real close to 13s next time. Hopefully....

enjoyed the reading... and thanks for posting the times!

Your 19.xx is not near as bad as a 36.xx I pulled at 28mph at the Milan dragstrip for the 20th show. I ran out of gas racing mr.fiero in his N* convertible. Needless to say... I lost

I had everyone in the stands thinking I popped the motor!... glad yours wasn't too bad.

Oh hahahahahah sorry blake but that was the funniest thing I've read in a long time, oh that'd be funny to see.

Poor little Fiero sputtering down the strip. You should have gotten out and pushed >=)


Nice story SCCA, I'm sure you'll keep cutting the times down, happy racing.

So... best of 14.546?

Not bad. Not bad at all!

It's addictive, isn't it?

I mostly went to see what it would do. Last time I went with a stock 2.8 and Isuzu 5 speed and made a terrible 16.9. Since my intake pipe blew off, I think I will go back again to see if I can break into the 13s. It also cost me $20 to register my number for the season and $25 for the night!

Oh....so that's your excuse, huh? When in doubt, blame it on running out of gas!

Well hey... It COULDNT be the driver... OR the tired 2.8L, so it HAD to be the gas right? Ahhh... that was fun.
I hope both you and SCCA make Wheatstock!

I'll be at Wheatstock.

I forgot to mention all the Civics with almost flat slicks there! Those mean suckers were getting real close to breaking the 15s! LOL... so funny.

They also have a "Fast Compact" class that you can run if you can manage a 10.00-12.99. Out of the 5 or 6 Imports in that class, only one was able to run within that time. I think it ran a mid 12 and had to have about $40k in it.

Yeah, but I'm gonna forget to turn up the boost, or accidentially get 85 octane gas, or miss second gear, or (insert another excuse here incase I lose)....

See you there!
(I plan to be intercooled before then. It's mounted, just need to plumb it)

Looks like I'll be the only non-intercooled 2.8 Turbie there.

Hey, what kind of boost are you guys pushing????

Not really sure since the tube to my gauge burned in half. About 9 usually.
