Can you post a slip? That would make it easier to understand what exactly happened. My first trip running Bama 93R, 3.55 gear and a CAI netted 14.0 @ 102 on my best runs.

That MPH is way too high for a 14.0...

Did you run it at street fights? I meant to go all summer but never got around to it

Not if you are spinning the tires!

A 14.2 sounds about right for a 2.73'd car..... The only thing that sounds odd is that he is having wheel spin in an auto... I used to launch mine at 2400 rpms for the best launch on stock energy savers. Little to no spin every time (with 3.73's).

Guys I did not mean to type 14.2, I meant to type 15.2. I feel like everyone's car even with the same mods is so much faster than mine.

Yes it was street fights

And my back tires are only like 40% tread left

Post your time slips.

I am sure you are killing the run within the first 60'.

Seat time and more seat time so that you get to learn the car, the tires, the track, best way to launch.

Something is wrong. The old V6's with more than 100 LESS horsepower run faster than that...

I agree more seat time will net you more improvements, just like it does with anything else. I would try my advice listed above the next time you hit the track. Try to leave on idle (hair higher), but with a light foot brake to take away any drivetrain slack. Then roll into the throttle while you leave. This has worked best for us, especially with street tires!

Don't get discouraged, you just need some practice!

I'll post my time slip in the morning when I go out to my car. But if it helps for now, it was at thunder valley in Bristol, tn. It was probably like 70 degrees at the time. I don't understand why mine is this slow.

here is the only slip i had left out of three runs. as i said my best was a 15.2 with a power launch and this was the one with the idle launch. sorry its crumbled up, i was furious that it was going this slow. i did have a person in the car but she was only a 100 pounds so i dont think that would account for a second or two. i always thought the rule of thumb was a hundred pounds is worth a tenth of a second. its really disheartening that ive put a bunch of money into the car and its this slow.

Yeah, something IS wrong. It doesn't matter how crappy of a driver someone is, if they push the pedal to the floor they're going to run more than 91MPH in the 1320...

I also ran lousy time. The tune wasn't the best, some breaking up at every gear. Those gears will kill us everytime. I was 15 flat every run. I will go with 3.73 and get a real dyno tune soon.

There is something wrong in your tune. There's no way with your mods you should be trapping 91 mph in the 1/4. No way unless your tune is terrible or something is wrong with the car.
