Default Track times

Since I live in the worst state in the world.(SC) We only have 1/8 mile tracks around my house. I ran a 9.70 in the 1/8. Does anyone have any numbers so I could get an idea of what I might run in 1/4? What are some of you guys 1/8 numbers? [?]

anywhere from 15.0 to 15.2 is roughly what a 9.7 would equate to *if i looked at the chart right*
Are you an auto-stick or manual? what was your MPH? and what was your sixty foot time?
either way keep it up, I'll have numbers for my 5spd GT up on Friday.

i'd say around low 15's aswell. but it's really hard to say. i know when i race my friends iroc in my civic, he has me beat by around .5-.7 tenths in the 1/8. but after that i start to pass and have him by .5-.7 tenths in the 1/4. but still nice times, keep up the good work.

Did you remove the back seats when you went to the track? Every little bit helps.

Yeah, ditch the back seats, those sure are heavy. One hundred pounds is about .2 seconds

Definatly, every tenth helps.
I'm pulling my seats out now and then heading off to the track. As soon as i get a chance I'll scan in the slips. [?]

Ill have the slips up probably sunday as thats when i have access to a scanner next.
i was planning on pulling the seats, but figured i'dk keep them in as thats how i drive on the street and my ultimate goal is a full interior 12 second daily driver PT, so I will continue to run with EVERYTHING in place [?]

5 speed, traction control off.
I was also playing around with shift points, Towards the end of the night i had a 15 flat with 94mph as the trap, but a 2.5 sixty foot, so i was figuring out the powerband a bit more, but giving up some on the launch. It's a VERY fun car even stock

I ran a 9.70 at 71mph. I am not sure what my 60ft time was. I do have it on video if I can figure out how to get it on here. I ran a Turbo Bug. I had my back seats out. They weigh a TON!! [?]
