Well, today my car club rented beech bend raceway, in bowling green,ky, it was also my first track experience ever. First let me tell you about the car. It is a mostly stock 94 Gt that I traded my old 87 lx coupe for. The only mods done are an x-pipe with flowmasters and dumps and 4.10 gears. Coming in I made my first pass without cooling down. My R/T was a .497 60 was 2.470 and ended up with a 16.504 in the 1/4. Start laughing now. :-[ I made about 10 passes all day with my best run being a 15.942 with a reaction time of .129 and a 60 ft of 2.329. Tires are 225/ 55/16 street tires. I know my 60 ft is really killing me. I couldnt hook at all on launch, but it seemed I got better 60's footbraking and hammering on it, then trying to pedal it out. The car is an automatic by the way. It also found out that the x- pipe that is on was some offbrand that was beat in to clear the oil pan, but i dont know how much that would have held me back.. Anyways, id like to know what you all think, How bad of a driver am I?
