Default Made a few 1/4 mile runs

Finally decided to go and make some runs before the season is over. I made 4 runs in total. Here they are in order...
60 ft 1/4 mile MPH
2.526 16.715 81.90
2.509 16.759 81.72
2.327 16.593 81.31
2.314 16.485 81.58
It was a cool day and that didn't help traction any as alot of people were spinning badly. But I'm pretty happy with the times I got considering all I've really done is a ram air and removed the MAF screen. I even beat a 91 5.0 Mustang ...well until the 330 foot mark LOL. L8r...guys...Andru.

Good times. Makes me feel slow. I want your tires. You're getting good launches. What are you running on it? Mine are shot.

I'll have new times posted next week after the ADTR intake and Jet chip.

Blk, what tires are you running?

Currently I'm driving with 215/50/16 Firestone Firehawks. Very low profile, makes my car lowered some.

Thanks willwren! I don't think u should feel slow, there is a big diff between 16.4 and 15.6. I'm currently running 225/60/16'* They are just rather cheap MotorMaster tires that were on the car when I bought it. Maybe not being a performance tire actually helps a bit at the track seeing as they might be a bit softer? and hook a bit better. L8r.
