    Your first pass--fess up

    Another thread here got me thinking: how many of you remember your first drag pass? How many still have the timeslip?

    Mine says it was 10/18/03, 10:17 PM, at the California Speedway, in my 95 LX. I know the following numbers are horrible. Obviously, I'm not trying to impress anyone. We all start somewhere, but at least I can say I won my first drag race (beat a first-gen Neon by 1.0142...I rule).

    R/T 1.434
    60' 2.374
    330' 6.699
    1/8 10.202
    MPH 70.83
    1000' 13.203
    1/4 15.753
    MPH 88.06

    I might still have the slip in the car, My first pass was in my 95 2 days after I bought it. I ran roughly 16.20

    Don't remember my first pass or know where the slip is. But I do know when I first started racing it was in my 95. And I would manually shift it and hit the rev limiter then it would run rich as heck and run 16's maybe a 17 in there somewhere. It was somewhere around 2000-2001 at MIR.

    My first pass on the 95 SC, it was about 3 years old at the time, completely stock. Early in the season, still had my H-rated winter tires on it ... 15.47 at 90 mph.


    cheers

    My very first pass? Let's see, "borrowed" mom's '66 F-85 to go to National Speedway and got talked into racing it. Class K stock or something stupid slow like that. I seem to recall it running in the 20's.

    .....or do you mean with the TBird?

    First time ever I believe is in this thread, September 2005. http://www.sccoa.com/forums/showthread.php?t=67633

    This was a weekend of racing and my first numbers on an essentially stock AOD car were not pretty.

    2:29pm 9/2 - Test & Tune
    R/T - .363
    60' - 2.909
    1/8th - 10.833 @ 69.49
    1/4 - 16.486 @ 87.02

    My best time of the weekend was the next day
    5:12pm 9/3 - Time Trials
    R/T - .188
    60' - 2.208
    1/8th - 9.962 @ 70.20
    1/4 - 15.573 @ 88.98 <------ Best

    new head gaskets, a lentech valve body, and the best the car ever achieved was 14.637 @ 91.62 with a 2.075 60ft in May 2009.

    my first pass in my car was in 2001. everyone i took for a ride on the street kept telling me it was a 12 second car and i should take it to the track. so i decided to take it. I enjoyed corner carving much more than drag racing back then and actually picked on all my drag racing buddies. my first pass ever resulted in a 13.85 @ 102 mph. i was very mad. a guy with a buick gn came up to me and was real impressed with my car. he noticed i was not happy with the run. asked me if i spun and i said a little. he told me to get some better tires and i would hit 12's. so i went home got a set of bfg drag radials. went back and ran a 12.92. i can honestly say if that guy with the gn never came up to me, i would never gone back. i guess i can say i am hooked now!!!

    My first pass in the birdie was the day that I bought it. I went to a friend's house and we made a CAI, took the silencer out, and cut the mufflers off. The car ran a 15.89 at 90mph and I was surprised it was that slow. Picked up a lot with exhaust and a late model blower.

    My first pass ever down the track was in my race car while I was testing for my NHRA license back in 2004. It ran a 10.21 @132mph. That spoiled me.

    They sound sweet with the mufflers off and the resonator still there.
