98 Sedan I4 - 5 Speed, 10psi
i ran 14.6 @ 96 with 6psi
Wednesday night at Darlington Dragway.
2000 EX Coupe.
F23A1 with ~8,000 miles on it.
H23 5-speed transmission
Nology Hot Wires
eBay header with warped head flange.
JET flashed F23A1 ECU
PSPEC Short shifter
Tires are 205/60/15 BFGoodrich g-force Sports, starting at 32psi, dropping to 24psi for my last (and best) runs.
Finally settling for 3600rpm launches, preloading every launch. r/t's are where they should be, but I really need to get my 60ft times down. Shifting at 6,800rpms.
Great times! The 60ft seems to be the only problem!
Nice times man. I wish I could have learned how to launch before my car took a p00pie
the first and only time i got to run i my car i think i ran 10's but on an 8th so thats like 15sec on a 1/4 and that was with my h22. cant wait to see where i stand the next time i run.
10's on an eighth mile doesn't mean you'll run 15's in the quarter. A of my runs were in the 10's, but could very well have been anywhere from 15-17second 1/4 mile passes. Hopefully though with the H22, you should pull off low 15's or better. You might still need some practice, because a low 15 1/4, should be in the 9's on the 1/8th.
Explain "preloading" please.
Is that feathering the clutch at the launch to make sure revs don't drop below, say 3000 rpm, and you stay in the powerband?
I think I'll write a 'How To:' tonight, and post it up, possibly to be stickied, so it will be easier for others to find when (if) they Search. I'll post a link to it here when I'm done.
