Headed down to Osceola Dragway for friday night t&t. Weather was partly cloudy and resonable temps in the upper 70's, for July anyways. Current mods and such: '93 auto S/C, '94 complete engine w/ supercharger, K&N panel w/ silencer removed, a/c delete, gutted cats, resonator replaced w/ dual in single out glasspack, stock back half, 1/2 tank of Sunoco Ultra 94 octane, hypertech chip[ I know, I know, came in the car but it might actually be doing something in my car since the a/c delete the car doesn't get over the `o' or `r' on the temp gauge and the 94 octane to go with the extra timing], 165r15's on steel spares, 26x8.0-15 Hoosier slicks[ of course!] on 15" fanblades, full interior, and empty trunk. Drove the car to the track and swapped the slicks on. I got 5 runs in but could have ran more, not a real busy night, but was trying to allow cool down time. Run info:

Reaction: .4092

Not bad I thought for the first time out with this car. Need to get the shift kit installed thats hanging on the wall, install a better exhaust, put on a 89-93 pulley, and at least a fan on the stock i/c or double i/c w/fan. Ditch the hypertech at this point, get a tune, and hope for the 13's!:D

Something doesn't add up....your using slicks and getting 2.1x 60 ft times. :confused: What rpm are you leaving the line? I ran 2.0x with street tires and 1.8x with slicks.

Your mph is too far off for the et.....I don't think you slipping off the line.

I launch off the line on the stall speed of the converter. If you have a stock converter, that might hurt you in getting into 13's with the current set up.

Still not bad for first trip.
