Firebird Raceway Conditions 92F, adjusted tire pressure from 27 to 32, track at ~1200 feet, I am an above average driver, first time with this car, VDC off, launched at from 2000-4000 rpm.

I ran pretty consistent 14.4's to 14-6's, even with all the adjustments I made.

My two best
60' ------2.270-------2.284
330' -----6.190-------6.199
1/8--------9.401-------9.417
MPH-----77.19-------76.94
1000----12.143------12.169
1/4-------14.457------14.491
MPH------97.77-------97.47

I am fairly happy with the results, they work out to about 14.2 at sea level. I know I can do better on the 60' times, need more practice with this car. The top end is something I need to work on, but I need dyno results to find shift points. I shifted at 6900 (1-2), 6300 (2-3), 6300 (3-4)

BTW, full interior, including spare but Gas light was on

Great times, be careful running that low of fuel. You might lose your fuel pump prime and running a little lean waiting for it to catch up again. My thoughts are to have 1/4 tank when you run, IMHO.

Did you run with the gas light on on purpose to get the weight down to a minimum? I can't see why you would do this as it can seriously damage your fuel filter and more. All the deposits accumulate at the bottom of your gas tank, and shit can get ugly. Maybe in your car's case it's too new to make any difference, but I wouldn't make it a habit If I were you. Aside from that, congrats on your runs, they look pretty good. Closer to the number an auto sedan makes, but you will do much better as your experience with the manual increases. [thmsup]

Read the part about corrected to sea level: The 14.4's correspond to 14.2 at sea level. mag's are getting 14.3's at their 3-500 ft high tracs. i say they correspond nicely, specially when you take my poor 60' times into account.

yes I ran that low on purpose. The track had gas on site, so i kept the gas light to where it would go from off to on during two runs or so.

gas light is 3.5 gallons left in my car. will not pick up any bottom solids there

Correct. I'm just lookin out for you man, I've seen 3.5 gallons turn into milliliters during har launches and acceleration. Peace...

Me too, the fuel lubricates the fuel pump and they are expensive to replace. Running at 1/4 tank does not add that much weight. Plus, it is over the rear to give you a little extra traction maybe. Let us know how you do the next time.
