This wasn't my first time at the track, as I have many hundreds of runs down the track with my old 94 Probe GT. I was always happy with my ability to be ultra consistent, and that's what I was again tonight. First runs were 15.1489@93.17 and 15.1491@92.83 only 2 ten-thousandths apart from each other! Then I let the car cool down for a good amount of time while i watched other races and took pictures. Jumped in the car for my last run of the night and ran 14.9583@93.70mph. Then I drove it right home.

I just have very basic mods. My mods are 70mm BBK, 73mm MAF, early model blower pulley, dynomax catback, catalytic delete, still have pre-cats, and Ken E Wagner double intercooler. I didn't care about weight reduction, I had a full set of tools in the trunk, spare tire, and half a tank of gas.

I'm happy with the speed of the car, I like it more for the looks and the fun ride. After clay-bar'ing and waxing this car, you can't tell it from a brand new car, I love it.

Full timeslip:
60ft - 2.3142
330 ft - 6.3430
1/8 ET - 9.6541
1/8 MPH - 72.82
1000' ET - 12.5462
1000' MPH - 84.87
1/4 ET - 14.9583
1/4 MPH - 93.70

Nice runs for a street car man! The car looks great too. With some better tires that car is capable of a mid 14. :)

Well guys, I'm not going to to turning this into a race car. I know what I would need to do to get it into the 13's, but it's really just a car that I use on the weekend because I have another car as a daily driver. I just love Supercoupes, and I know that once you start modding a car, is when things start going wrong. It looks stock, it sounds stock, and it's a little bit faster than stock, which is good enough for me.
I just wanted to take it to the track to see what it could run, and because I don't really get to open it from 0 to 100mph when on the street, since that's probably not safe to do.

I can understand that man, that's cool. I like seeing people take their weekend cruisers or daily drivers to the track to see what they got. Your car looks really clean and it's got some pep to it.
