14.2 first time out is a good time. My first time out was 14.3 now I run consistent 13's with a best of 13.14 NA.

Just need to find out what works best for your car which takes seat time (practice).

What is your rev limit changed to?

One thing I do on the way to the track is do a couple of WOT pulls 4-6 in 2nd before getting there. Our cars have adaptive learning so you want the car to know you want to drive aggressively which is your tune.

Even though you are tuned the car will detune to your everyday city driving for MPG the pulls helps get to your tuned parameters faster.

13.3 run

How are you going to tease us with low 13 passes n/a and not give us a mod list.

Also how big of a shot are you running?

Even if you go get dynotuned the ecu will retune itself? I heard they relearn pretty quick but why tune if its just going to tune itself back? Or is it still worth it? I'm just debating this because its going to be a good $600+.

The car will relearn quickly if tuned which is why I do the pulls before getting to the track to wake it up to my tuned parameters. Car was used to my GF driving all the time.

The dyno tune doesn't disable the adaptive learning.

Drag race tips please

First of all get yourself decent lightweight wheels, improve your car headers and exhaust and take off when green lights not wait 5 sec. your 60' decides your race it should be 1.8s

Heres a video of me yesterday(14.2). I rode my clutch on first gear, and didnt power shift. I think if I did both of those properly I would of been in the high mid/high 13s.

My question is, what RPM should I take off on? I read mixed suggestions from 3000 and 4000. Has anyone had any success tracking their G?

Also, am I suppose to dump my clutch on first gear? I noticed when I did that, my tires were spinning pretty bad and fish tailed a bit. Suggestions please

Go easy on me, it was my first time haha

DSSkyline your NA times are really impressive. 107 trap speed is really good. What are your mods when running NA?

My best time so far with a 03 G35 coupe 5AT with a 5/16 plenum spacer, intake, test pipes, Y pipe, the car weighed 3075lbs at the track without driver. Best time was a [email protected] with a 2.088 60 foot
