went to the track today (video)

i have 2 videos of me at the track.

the first one is at 8psi: [email protected] i think (didnt get the time on camera)
the second one is at 10psi: [email protected]


first vid (8psi), didnt launch very well, and this was one of my slower runs of the night)

second vid (10psi), couldnt get it into 2nd gear very quickly -you can see in the video how slow the shift was- hence the slow ET.

Thanks

Question nice work, a few questions

Right on man, nice work. I want to take my FD to the track to get some timeslips too. What tires were you running? Also, what were your intake temps (if you know)? Finally, any other tips for a first timer? I've gotten pretty good at doing burnouts, but I heard that some guys put dry ice on their intercoolers and intake plenums before a run to keep charge temps down (and increase power, etc.). Any thoughts?

Thanks in advance!

1. crappy hankook tires that came with my car @ about 25psi air pressure

2. no idea what the intake temps were, but they were probably high -130-140*F probably
3. no genius tips or anything, just shift as fast as possible and make as many passes down the track as you can... and make sure you give the car time to cool off between runs. dont worry about doing burnouts and all that until you have some experience launching and running the car down the track.
4. anything you can do to keep the IC any cooler will help (and help your engine not blow up)

hm. i have about the same mods. exhaust, intake, ignition, non-sequential, solid diff mounts, and engine torque dampener, front strut bar. on potenza 750 tires, when this motors broken in i hope to be hitting mid 12's like that, would be nice, especially at 10 psi
