    Need some help...

    I have never been to the track. I really have no intention on my stock gears to go yet. I am very curious however on my trap speed w/my current set up. Its confusing however. I was hoping all of you could help me.

    S/C S2000...what does this trap at ???? w/310whp
    "stock"cobra ..or so he says...I lost to this ????
    320whp Evo....We tied....

    It doesnt add up. The mustang is supposed to trap at around 112mph right ? I thought the evo and s2k trapped around that too w/ those mods. I beat or tied all but the cobra so now I am confused. I was hoping on my 21psi map I'd trap around 110-112mph, is this reasonable ? Opinions please.

    He swears he was stock. But stock he should trap around the same as the other cars. He now has a re flash, cai, and some kind of x pipe or something like that. He's now over 400whp so, its not even good to do it again. I think he had the re flash when we ran...

    If you want to find your trap, just go to the track.
    You don't need to launch the car either.. Just roll off the line, and then go balls out down the track, just as you would during a race...

    Your trap speed should be very close, if no identical to what you would achieve if you launched.

    The thing about the WRX tranny and the 4th gear is that for some reason, it allows the car to keep up with cars that trap faster than it does in roll-on races. erhaps this is because you spend very little time in 4th gear before you cross the line, so you are out of the powerband. When you reach the band again though, it is business as usual.
