Default First time on the 1/4 mile ever. Help diagnose

Went out to the street legal drags at California Speedway today and thought I did OK for my first time out at the track but definitely have room for improvement. I got seven runs but I'll only post the best 3


R/T .484
60 1.933
330 5.345
1/8 8.211
Mph 86.86
1000 10.64
12.719
Mph 109.12


R/T .618
60 1.98
330 5.444
1/8 8.282
Mph 87.93
1000 10.692
12.75
Mph 110.05


R/T .332
60 2.13
330 5.656
1/8 8.499
Mph 85.98
1000 10.914
12.956
Mph 111.92

The car is a '03 WRX with hybrid swap, 100mm pistons, headwork, cams, 18G, FMIC, stock 5-speed, spare tire removed

All runs on BFG KDWs and street pressure (33F/35R)

I would have been pumped if I could have run a 12.5 my first time out but I think I should be able to get it next time with practice. Any suggestions on what I can do to drop my times.

Thanks all.

Improve your launch, for every 10th of a second lower on the launch you should see about 2tenths of a second lower on the 1/4mi time. Also flat foot shifting will help but its risky because you can chew gears up if you miss shift. What are your shift points? I'm pretty sure with an 18g you should take it to redline.

Default launch...

its the launch for sure...i was in a 2002 wrx wagon when i went to the strip, only had 16.5 psi and turboback exhaust, and i was seeing 1.89 as my best 60ft time. So, in your situation i would imagine you should be able to at least get that into the 1.80-1.70 range...get on dragtimes.com and see what other people with your setup are getting...thats what i do. If you can take a tenth or two off your launch you are looking at at least 2 off in the end...

also raising your tire pressure too may help to help you get some wheel spin (faster launch in some cases on AWD cars)

60ft definately could be better, however Fontana is also just a slow track. I also could not get it all together for one run, fastest ET yesterday was 13.1, MPH was 107.58 and 60ft 1.85.

That's what I've heard to but what other 1/4 mile options do we have in SoCal?

Is Pomona open to the public?

I wish, not anymore. There use to be a summit event held there for imports, however it is not on the schedule for 2008 Fontana is the only strip in SoCal. Unfortunately the next street legals event isn't until Nov. 1st however Battle of the Imports will be held Oct. 18-19th.

Today was a good day. I bested my expectations and would have been happy with the 12.57 run but this 12.405 run after bouncing off the rev limiter in 3rd give me confidence I can go faster if I tried. Next time I run I'll probably have the 3076, TGV deletes, ported TB, and ported intake manifold on and a good tune. I wonder about how much my times "should" improve by.

I really had a good time whooping that turbo supra that was trapping 125+. Traction>>>>>Him. Best run of the day to. Here it is


R/T ..352
60’ 1.800
330’ 5.167
1/8 7.91
Mph 88.96
1000’ 10.358
12.405
Mph 112.00

by your posts in bmd i would think you are in the 10 second range!


some of the guy's launch VERY high in the rev limiter, to say the least..it didn't help me, but i could see why if they have the right tires, drag alignment, susp setup how it would work well
