1st time at the track, couldnt get above 98 mph. Frusterating.
Just bought "Sally" about 3 months ago. All mods are in my sig. There arent many mods cuz i am on a budget and I just bought her. I FINALLY got to go to the dragway and did 5 passes.
Best pass was:
1/8 ET 9.1801
1/8 MPH 76.92
1/4 ET 14.1387
1/4 MPH 98.34
My best reaction time was actually my first run with a .0071 very happy about that!
Anyway, EVERY pass my top speed was 98 mph at @5800-5900 rpm in 3rd gear. I kno my launch can easily be improved with drag radials. but i feel the top speed will be holding me back ALOT.
I am thinking the solution is i need to change gear ratio? Right now i have the stock 3.55's and I never get out of 3rd. I am thinking the solution to higher top speed for me right now, is change to 3.90 or 4.10 gears? so i can go thru the gears faster and get into 4th which will have highest top speed.
Does that sound right? (TOTAL newb to cars, racing etc. just done bunch of research past 3 months)
