    Took the RSX to the 1320 strip this weekend...



    The vid pretty much sums up my runs. It was my first time with the car at the track w/ my current setup. I plan on going a few more times this season as it starts to get cooler over here and hope to lower my ETs, I definitely think it's possible because of my traps, which I think can improve as well as we get some colder air. There was no scale there, so I have no idea what the car weighed. I started with 32psi in the tires and was getting some wheel hop, so I lowered them to about 23-25psi. For the most part I was pulling 2.2-2.3s, but did manage a few 2.1 60fts (gotta love FWD on a street tire).

    The 335's best time was 13.3 @ 105.
    The EG's best time was 13.5 @ 102.5.

    Seems to be running pretty healthy, going to the track is always fun unless you were like me the first few times. Damage a used engine and have constant fuel issues. All is worked out though and been running great lol. Again good runs man.

    LOL do they make you wear a helmet if you run 13's?

    Here you have to wear a helmet if you're low 12's or faster.

    The track here in Iowa that I run at, if you're 13.99 or faster, you need a helmet.

    Most NHRA tracks follow the requirements, test and tune nights a bit different and are generally lenient. When I ran my 12.5 I didn't have a helmet and no one said shit because I was making clean passes all day.

    It will go faster as soon as I can get this issue with 2nd gear figured out, it really hurts my times that I have to shift slower 1st to 2nd then I do any of the other gears. Ordered an Omni Power CMC, read that a lot of people love this, so I am hoping to install that along with a stainless steel clutch line and go back in about a month or so to grab that mid 13s slip on street tires. My 60s weren't all that bad considering the setup, FWD car on street tires, I pulled off a couple , 2.1's...I need to mess with the launch limiter b/c I think I can come out harder than I was. And yes, you need a helmet no matter what you run.
