Well i just traded in my old 2000 Celica GT-S for a 2004 SRT-4. I am in love with actually having torque but seeing as it was my first time at the track with a car i just bought last sat. i think i handled very well. Launching this was entirly different then the celica. Here is my best run of the day.

r/t: .801
60: 2.164
330: 6.010
1/8: 9.108
mph: 80.01
1000: 11.742
1/4: 13.986
mph: 100.56

The track i went to had electrical problems for about 3 hours so i only go 3 runs in. With 2 14.0's and that 13.9.

I know i can improve the 60' ft alot. Just need to practice launching this beast a little bit more. What do you guys think of the times seeing as i just got the car last Saturday. BTW i bought it used with 3k miles so it was already broken in.

Good times man. Actually your 60 is decent. I know some really good drivers can hit 2.0's and what not but still 2.1 is good. Those KDW's rock as far as grip goes... untill they wear a little atleast. I know mine, not down to the little wear indicators just right above, wouldn't hook no matter what. With my mods I could punch it in 2nd from a 40 roll and spin till like 5k or so.

Last Night I ran similar times at my 1/8 mile track last night. First time I went there about a month ago the best I could do was a 9.5 at 78.13mph. My first run last night was 9.41 at 79.00mph, next was my personal best so far 9.24 at 79.48 MPH. Next two runs my tires got cold so I didn't have traction. Last run I did a nice burn out to warm them up, but bogged the launch because I was afraid I wouldn't have traction, only ran a 9.30 but had my first 80+ MPH at 80.53MPH I was pretty happy about that, BTW I'm stock too. Good times I can't wait to run the 1/4

On the 9.24 time it was 2.227, not to great, it wheel hopped twice then bogged. On the 80+ MPH trap it was only 2.31, I bogged really bad on that one, lol.

OMG....this thread is funny. its almost EXACTLY the same as my thread from a few weeks ago.

i had a celica also, and i also traded it in for an 04 srt4. my 1/4 mile time is off from your's by about .01seconds and the trap speed is off by less than .5mph. i also bought my srt4 used with about 3k miles on it.

vvtli and i are like twins that were separated at birth or something, LOL

Here is my best run so far. The only mod i had is a 3 foot long 3 inch DP, dumping just in front of the arm rest under the car.

r/t: +.629 =(
60: 2.128
330: 5.906
1/8: 8.417
mph: 80.62
1/4: 13.827
mph: 100.5

not bad, but still working on my reaction time.

That's kinda wierd bro. figuring you 1/8th time you should be low 13's or so. Seems like you car just died after the 1/8th or something. I think I ran a 9.018 stock and that should = out to be like a 13.8-9 or something like that. Someone please correct me if I'm wrong.

Well, i live in hot and humid georgia, so the speed from 1/8 to the 1/4 wont affect the intercooler as much as some people. Or maybe the timing system displayed the wrong time for me? not sure, but a buddy of mine, that same night, ran a little faster 1/8 and got a 13.4 in the 1/4.

oh yeah, and my shift knob flew off after shifting to second gear. I was shifting a nub after that. =)

What was the weather like, and what altitude were you at? Those are nice times though. We are still pissed that we couldn't hit 100mph. The best we ever did was 99.9mph in a 14.17. That was in 90 degree weather with horrible wheel hop.
