    First time at the track with my 02 :)

    so i went with my buddy to the track so he can test out his slicks on his 480hp and 500+ trq 6.0 goat and decided to run my car. i only have a tbe on it at the time and couldnt beat on it too hard beings for one i didnt want to rip out my tranny and two i still got my factory clutch with 125,xxx miles on it lol. but my first two passes were against my buddies 350z i beat him both times with the my first pass 9.8 and my 2nd pass 9.6 my last race was against a dodge caliber srt-4 and i beat him runnin a 9 flat im sure i could have gotten a better time than that but i cant really afford to replace my clutch at the moment so i decided to call it a night oh btw this was my first time at the track ever and it was on a 1/8 mile

    I used to drag race a lot when I was in college (20yrs back, lol). The first time I got back into it, a couple years ago, I was all ate up!

    I kept missing the staging, forgot to roll my windows up, rolled though the water box, etc...lol

    It's fun though...

    Thanks man I was hoping to get in the 8's but I didn't want to risk my clutch going out so I just settled for 9 flat and waiting to go back after I get a new clutch

    Sounds like that dude's 350Z couldn't beat my old Grand Marquis! It ran 9.9 @ 74.
