stop being disappointed. you are not going to become and expert drag racer over night. it takes patience and practice.

what were your 60 foot times? mile per hour?

thats not that bad for a bone stock car man.



RIP silver car. You will be missed.

I ran a 16.3 with a 2.25 60ft in a 2200 with bolt ons. You should be able to break 15s. I could have with practice I think.

A stock 5spd z24 with a good launch should be close to the 15.7 range, based on everything I have seen around here.

Low 16s is normal. High 15s if your a GREAT driver and have a well maintained car... with a manual.

Make sure you drag the clutch out cause wheel hop kills diffs. Keep going to the track 15s easy doable stock.

Yeah not adjusting tire reassure is one of the biggest mistakes I see people make.

I think with a lower tire pressure you would have gotten a better launch resulting in a better time.
