Thanks guys for your support today; made the day very enjoyable. Adam helped make my nerves calm and Mike was very nice to do a run with me on my first run. I was very nervous, let me say.
My best reaction time for the day was on the second run a 0.604 (from 0.5) but after that I was concentrating more on the clutch position at launch, and the first shift, so reaction time went out the window.
My best run was the last one:
I3: 8.908 @ 82.662 mph
E.T. : 13.606 @ 105.437 MPH
For those who don't know my car, its my E30, turbo @ ~10.5 psi. I had no trunk tar or spare tire, nor any A/C. I do have a huge amplifer board with 2 amps tho (stupid) and ate two frozen dinners for lunch.
I couldn't really get the hang of first or second gear. The stiff suspension and 17" wheels just made the rear end hop, sometimes a dozen times through second gear. It sounded like I was driving over potholes. Third and fourth gear are awesome though, hence the 105 mph. If I could get the 60' near 2.0 I imagine I would see some really amazing improvements, but still....
I'm SUPER happy with my times today! Yay!
