Well the car was fast if you trapped 118. Was the problem between the steering wheel and the seat?

No idea 118 mph trap speed in my car at 21psi should be around 450 horsepower.

My best trap

First run, spun through 4th gear. :redspot

There were spots of rain here and there, plus it was cold. It's a small track so I'm not too sure it's in "the greatest" condition. Had a TON of fun even though my times were slow. First ever time doing this.


To recap


Noisy Vanos
Leaking .140 MLS
210k mile M50 with S50 cams
3" turbo back exhaust with muffler and resonator, no cat
Spa 7000 turbo
Ebay cast manifold
TRM draw tune
42lb injectors
Stock fuel pump, lines, etc.
Full suspension rebuild, TRM coilvers, etc.
-2.X degree negative camber in the rear
245/40/18 street tires at 28psi



First run was 14psi

I did a few at that setting and was running around 115mph trap in the 13s.

Turned it to 21psi :devillook and it was 118mph with 13 flat consistently. It just didn't hook well. Another problem is my setup does not spool quickly so getting off the line was near impossible. On the final run (of 20 or so) I tried to slip the clutch a little more from the start and I think I toasted it. lol













Should be an easy low 12 sec car with drag radials and a good 60ft time. I'm not unhappy with how I did, there isn't much else you could do given the situation.


Videos coming

For what it's worth, my buddy ran a 14.X at 99mph in his E46 M3 and my other buddy a 12.0 at 118mph in his 465whp turbo 350z on drag radials on this same track.
