Track run with the 5.0 (mustang content)

Well here's my times...keep in mind, I've NEVER been down a dragstrip, so this was my cherry run,

1st Run (Right Lane) :

1/4- 17.73 @ 87.41 mph
Reaction time-.6568
60ft-2.9466

2nd Run (left Lane) :

1/4- 15.03 @ 91.49 mph
Reaction time-.6946
60ft-2.2701

3rd Run (left lane) :

1/4- 14.84 @ 93.30 mph
Reaction Time-.5289
60ft-2.2309

4th run (left Lane) :

1/4- 14.79 @ 92.50 mph
Reaction Time-.2782
60ft-2.2314

5th run (left lane) :

1/4- 15.26 @ 92.01 mph
Reaction Time-.6206
60ft-2.5801

I would say pretty darn good (14.79 run) for a stock car with just an intake, and full exhaust on radials (new nitto nt555's) @ 32 psi.
My car is:

90 LX notch w/135k miles
Motor is STOCK from pan to throttle body.
Suspension is STOCK
Mods are:
BBK short ram intake tube with K&N conical filter
FRPP 1 5/8 shorty headers
2.5 offroad H-pipe
Borla XR1 mufflers to 2.5 LX tailpipes
3.55 gears
5 lug swap
Stock t-5 w/pro 5.0 shifter
01 cobra wheels with Nitto 255/45/17 NT555's.


Really really would like to get a set of slicks and see what the car would run then.

Some pictures (video's on the way)
Me and Chris talking techniques (he's a soon to be Boss 302 Laguna Seca owner)


Me Staging for my first run:

Me and my 2 little girls (they were doing a awesome job cheering on their slow daddy :P)

I love an LX coupe. The sound, the muscle, and the fog lights on while racing looks dope.

Nice! Cool to see how you improved with basically every run too! I'm guessing you spun pretty hard on that first run eh?

yeah spun 1st through 3rd. Way too much rpm @ launch for that track. I just couldn't hook up out of the hole, even @ 800 rpm I would spin. No VHT was put down.

I'm betting that my car would run high 13's @ a different track. Same setup, maybe bump the timing up a little bit. Once I was past the 60ft mark, the track was fine. The hole either makes you or breaks you. This weekend, it broke me....couldn't get out that fast.
