Default First time at the drag strip

So i've bee wanting to go run my car on the drag strip for quite a while and yesterday i finally got around to doing so. Car impressed me a bit as i didn't expect to get below 15 seconds. Mods are, 3.4" pulley, colder plugs, zzp plog, 3" downpipe, cold air intake and a dyno tune. Best run of the day was 14.474 @ 98.59



Here's the video

Cool!! I have not ran a car at a drag strip in years, but it's a fun time. It's. Ice to also have proof of what it actually can do in the quarter mile.

Yes, and it's interesting looking at the right-lane car's results: about six-tenths slower in e.t., but still ended up with a faster trap speed. Strong car with traction troubles?
