Just got back from the local dragstrip tonite and it seems like mid 16s are a stock 3's 1/4 times. I ran four times and got a 16.4, 16.4, 16.5 and 16.2. I would call myself an experienced drag racer but being in a new car for the first time of course I think I can do better. I am going to go back when I get my Azenis or MX in a couple of weeks and see if I can pull a 16.1 or 16.0

Here is the timeslip from my best run:



BTW weighed the car too and it weighs 2870 with me out of the car. This is with spare tire, and about 5 lbs of laundry in the back ;)

[2.3Sedan 5spd]

EDIT: This is the thread where you can post 1/4 miles times. Let's keep it all on one thread (ie: not everyone starting their own), so we can compare #s better :)

On the 16.2 I launched at around 4000 rpm. I slipped the clutch out instead of dumping it. I dumped the clutch the first run and the wheel hop was so bad my bumper slipped out of alignment! This was at about 3000 rpms. I dunno if its the tires or the track surface was too slick but I will see what results I get with the new tires in a couple of weeks.
