I ran my FD on a 1/8 mile track here in VA. It ran 9 flat at 80 mph. Is that good?

With your mods I'd expect a bit quicker. Maybe not a ton. That's just a WAG though based on my times in various cars. If it's your first time at the strip it's really not a bad time at all. Your 60ft time is all important and getting it right is pretty tricky.

I ran a 8.9 @81mph with a 1.9 '60 time in a 93 R1 with DP, Intake , Exhaust and a Knight Sports ECU running stock boost. In the 1/8 mile it's all about the '60

My 60 ft time was 2.045. I know I can get a better launch. It was the first time out with the FD.
