Hey guys,

I went to New Engalnd Dragway the other day for their street night. All stock cars, but most had major mods.. and even a few with nitro!

I have a 01' R/T Motorsports... with no mods except for a K&N filter. I had never drag raced before, but it was so much fun.

My best 1/4 mile time was 15.917 at 90.18 mph.
I used the autostick and was just shifting to 3rd at the line.
Oh yeah, I got a .553 reaction time on one run! :D

Can anybody suggest some minor mods to shave some time off.
I don't have alot of money to sink into an intake and exhaust right now, but hopefully soon.

Take out the spare tire, backseats, passenger seat, big-ass stereo system and try to get there with only a gal in the tank.
:wink:

but make sure the gal weighs less than 100lbs...
:biggrin:

Hmm. Nice, and it makes sense, take out anything that weighs anything.. You think he could try racing without the doors? :biggrin:

I agree on taking out the seats, spare, etc...
I took out the spare and, of course, all the junk in my trunk.

But one thing I won't agree on is having one gallon in the tank.

I have noticed on numerous occassions that decrease in overall power when I am running out of gas. My friend explained that this is due to a lack of pressure on the fuel pump.

I went with a 1/4 tank (4.25 gallons), but I may try to go down a little more next time.
