I finally got down to edgewater to see how the trep runs. My car is a 1997 Intrepid Sport - pretty basic, no ABS, no Trac, just the 3.5 and autostick. This was my first time ever racing on a track, so these times aren't that great. I spun the tires a little bit before the first two races, but decided to see if it made a difference and didnt burnout for the third race. Overall it was a lot of fun. My friend has a stock 2000 firebird formula and isnt allowed to race there anymore until he gets a helmet because he runs >13.9

First race: Toyota Tacoma - lift kit, mudder tires, 2.7l I-4
obviously i won
R/T - .672
60' - 2.473
330 - 7.015
1/8 - 10.754
MPH - 66.21
1000 - 13.916
1/4 - 16.563
MPH - 84.92
The staging light caught me off guard on this one, i didnt expect it to start so fast, so i barely launched it at all

Second race: Dodge Avenger - i think he had an intake, but that was about it. don't know what engine or other mods. once again, i was victorious
R/T - .652
60' - 2.422
330 - 6.900
1/8 - 10.599
MPH - 67.00
1000 - 13.721
1/4 - 16.330
MPH - 86.28
This was my best race - R/T was still pretty bad though

Third Race - some kind of prelude, only obvious mod was exhaust. This one was pretty close, i only got him by .457 seconds.
R/T - .215
60' - 2.424
330 - 6.922
1/8 - 10.641
MPH - 66.58
1000 - 13.784
1/4 - 16.406
MPH - 85.90
I didn't spin the tires this time, which might have explained the slightly slower times. I immidiately got him off the line and held about a carlength on him the whole way, if i would have screwed up the launch he probably would have beat me. he drove off after the race so i couldnt find him and see what kind of mods he had.

Wow, ummmmmmm, I'm thinking your 1g 3.5 should be running faster than that? Low 16's. I'm running 0.8 seconds quicker than those times in the 1/4.

keep in mind this was my first time to the track, so i didnt really know what i was doing as far as launching it goes.. plus i also was running 87 gas and had my subwoofer system in the trunk which probably weighs close to 75 pounds. right now i am not happy with those times, i want to get an intake, take out the sub, and try again.
