Default 2002 4.0L Aurora at the Track!!!

Hey guys, you gotta check this out.

I always knew a lightly modded 4.0 could achieve 14'* in the 1/4 but no one has ever posted about it.

Until now....

Check out these vids, a co-member at ACNA hit the Mason-Dixon drags this weekend and achieved a PB of 14.86 @ 92.23 mph. The vids show a convincing victory against a Mazda Miata, and the second was his 4th run against a heavily modded Eclipse, the Aurora took it off the line but ended up losing the race.

3 out of 4 aint bad.

The car is modified with a full Corsa exhaust and a Reflectix (sp?) wrapped stock airbox w/K&N

Have a peek!

lol this GA got TOTALLY dusted..

RT was not the best IIRC, for a rookie track driver, 0.4 seconds off an experienced drag racer would stand for something.

Its still good footage

Nope, the Final 500 is a 2003, and has 17" STS style wheels, however we do have an ACNA member with a final 500...helluva car, in fact he has 2 Auroras.

What does an aurora weigh? Good footage, although the camera person could have gotten the times Is that his PB?

14.86 was the PB, however I am not certain if the vids captured the personal best. The weight of the car is just a bit less than 3900 lbs.

My Aurora is heavier though. One of the improvments that the 2nd gen enjoys.
