Default AutoStick GT 1/4 Mile Timeslip

Hi, my name is Katie and I'm new to the boards. I just bought a 2003 GT Cruiser ATX in Electric Blue. I had the chance to take the car to the track last night and wanted to share my times.

The car was completely stock, with no modifications (spare tire attached and all). I used the AutoStick and shifted a tad before the redline (5800 RPM or so). The traction control was left ON.

Here is a copy of the second run (Right):

The first run ran at 15.148 at 90.32 and the third at 15.162 at 90.96.

The last run I took the traction control off and ran 15.296 at 89.43.

I was actually expecting mid 15's, but surely can't complain
I'd like to see what happens with stage 1 installed.

The car to the left was a 99 Honda Civic SI with Exh. Int. Header. SAFC and Cam Gears

Nice slip! Welcome to the boards. So did you trade in your souped-up Focus for your GT?

Thanks for the welcome

I still have the Focus... it isn't exactly "daily driveable" so to speak... I've put a lot of time and money into it and dont' want to part with it just yet...

I always wondered about the mailman ... Nice to see another girl on the message boards! [^]

Hi Kattie and welcome!
My advice is save your pennies and wait a few more months for Stage 2. Once you get the price you can then decide if you want to buy Stage 1 or step up to Stage 2. Stage 1 will drop you to around 14.60's and Stage 2 is anybodys guess at this point but I'm thinking very low 14's or high 13's.

Hi Katie - Nice color, and a great car. Your slip is a good one, especially considering that you still had the back seats and spare in. The car gets faster as it gets some mileage on it, and if your car qualifies under the PCM TSB, then get it done, as it helps with performance as well.
Have fun.
