Hey guys just got back from the track. Local 1/8 mile track just for some practice.

60' 2.00
1/8 8.22
88.4mph

75 degrees, right at seal level (Raleigh, NC)

Not bad for a car that is not at home on the dragstrip nor an 1/8 car!

I was fairly pleased, I just think the car will 60 foot a little better on the radials, just take some practice. Not to mention clutch wear! Hoping to get the car into the 7's w/ a little practice, which should net me low 12's high 11's.

91 NSX 5-speed
stock gears
Comptech headers, exhaust, and ECU
RM NOS kit w/intake and RM clutch
Nitto 555R radials

Thanks Joe. I need to lower the pressure some and really try to leave the car a little harder. That run was on 25lbs w/heating the tires just a bit. Clutch won't take too many hard leaves though. I think it will do much better w/some time to practice on the radials. I am pleased w/the 88mph. That's about what my bpu+ supra ran so I am happy. Be REALLY happy in the 7's /11's though.

Nothing like an 11 second NSX to make one fearless.
