Went out to Thunder Valley Raceway Park in Noble, OK with my brother. I was car 277. His Corolla XRS was car 276. We got 10 passes in. Conditions were not very favorable. Temps were at 90, dewpoint was around 75. The DA was 3743. This was my first time drag racing. For the life of me, I could not get the car to hook up good . I'm sure the LS wheels/tires didn't help, but I still would have liked to get better times. Wheel hopped pretty bad one run and got 16 seconds :/
On my best E/T and MPH, I had a bad reaction time (see the 7:51 pm run timeslip, 14.707 @ 98.12 MPH). On my last few runs I was trying to see how close to the rev limiter I could get. I hit it a couple times, but was at least consistently in the high 14s by then. Overall, it was a great learning experience, but I really really need to get my 60' times down.
This fellow member was also there:
