What is your fastest 1/4 or 1/8 mile? 60 ft times. I thought there was going to be a track day yesterday up in the great white north. I haven't seen anything about it. My best 1/4 is 16.18 with a 60 of 2.61 @ 83.7 This was totally stock N/A with 225/60 16s.Who has the fastest Bonnie out there? Most importantly what mods did you make that most improved your times

BadSSEi is the fastest, easily. Nobody can touch him, not even the GTP'*. My times suffer because of my tires, and the age of my car. Low miles, though. I'm expecting my Jet chip and ADTR intake to shave 0.5 from the 0-60, but I really need better tires most of all. I get shitty launches. My 1/4'* are ok, but I'd like to push 100mph there. Chip and intake are next week. Tires and pulley are next spring. I should be in the mid 6'* by then, and MAYBE about 15 on the 1/4.

My times are posted in my signature. I never ran the car stock. Wish I had. Remember, I have the series1 sc. I'm not 240hp stock! I might be close now, but no way of knowing for sure. I don't really care about the hp, anyway. I'm looking at my goal for times, and then I'll be happy. I want the performance, but I don't want to tear the car apart, either. It'* too cherry to treat it that way. WAY low miles. The chip and intake improvements will be well documented this time. That' why I just ran my times.

Where did you start out? Did you do a baseline run before any mods? Most importantly do you have a time slip to back up your claim?

I need to put my glass'* back on . Didn't look at your signature before I asked my question. Major apologies. That said my N/A is only a 1/2 sec. slower? I thought it would be more that that!
