    went to the track last night to see how the pi intake and 3:90s gained, so heres the story. got to the track at 6:00pm and had been driving the car for 3hrs straight around the city picking up my cheuqe and a appointment i needed to go to. it was fairly warm out all day so when i get to the track i go right through tech inspection and just get my # painted on when they call my class up. so i roll up to the line against a blue 5L fox body lx stage and this was the result a 14.628 @ 94.26mph :mad: i just can't fucking drive anymore, sloppy shifts all the way through to 4th, but i just don't under stand how i only ran 94mph, i ran an identicle run last year minus newer tires the 3:90s and the pi intake, that # on that time slip were almost exactly the same right through and that netted me a 14.6 @ 94mph. same time in june last year and same weather. i had one more run after that then we got rained out but it was worse with a 2.4 60" and 14.7 @ 94mph, the car just never had a chance to cool down but and i have a still have a buggerd up hand from my work accident 2 1/2 months ago but come on those # are no better that a stock 97 gt? it's gotta have more in it tan that. i can feel how much harder the car pulls since the new gears and intake so whats up. i was at least expecting a low 14 @ around 98-99mph.

    it looks like you forgot how to drive :hammer: go back and try again, maybe you just had an off night :dunno:

    my last trip to the track i couldnt even break into the 14's!! my best was a 15.000 @ 93.18 w/ 2.215 60'... i didnt feel too bad about it though cause no one was running good that night. i did an adjusted time based on temp, alt., humidity, etc. and it said i should have run a 14.2 or something :eek:

    hell, i'd be happy with a mid/high 14 with my mods and mileage :hammer:

    with ur mods you should be trapping 98-99mph. 94mph is low for what you have done to ur car. drop ur 60's under 2 (ie. 1.8-1.9) and you can say hello to low 14's but i don't know where ur mph went :-\

    So how badly would for example my chrome heavy ass 18" wheels on 35 series rubber effect my 1/4 time, vs lets even say stock wheels?
