well as some of you know I go racing every Thursday night @ New Hope Dragway. The Z doesn't do to bad, but I was disappointed with my performance in the Lude, I think I can do better I just need to get used to the car a bit more and work on my launchs. I was spinning too much.

60 ft.: 2.449
ET @ 594 ft.: 10.023

The Lude

Reaction: .960
60 ft.: 2.501
ET @ 594 ft.: 9.979

ne 1/4 times?
nope the 1/4th track is in Indy at IRP. they run on tuesdays and its like $20 for 2 runs. at new hope we get unlimited runs for $10 from 5:45-7:45 then they have run for the money which is $20. so if you just test and tune, you can run again on breaks in the run for the money rounds. so you can get a ton of runs. its import night on thursday. course only about 20 people usually come so its not crowded. its just something to do. it only takes 45 min to get there so its close to home.

tons of pics are at http://teamdrastic.ionichost.com/ > Events ? Event Pics > New Hope

This is the 6th week we have been, next thursday is the last week.

What rpm are you shifting the 'lude at?
should be around 7800-8000rpms...
I agree with you, but I was wondering if girlracer was shifting too low. It just seemed like her times were too slow for a prelude.

i was usually redlining it, i just had horrible take offs. its my first manual, let alone trying to get a good reaction time. i'm not running this week cause i'm poor with the bash coming up so it will have to wait til next year when the track opens back up.

yep, low 15's should be her target since she has no mods...
the prelude is extremely hard to get used to for good launches though... its nothing like driving a z, where the torque is immediately available; it definately involves some experience to drive correctly. (no offence girlracer)

oh i know, look ^, I driven manuals before, since my parents and brother only buy manuals. but i dont have the skills, i wanted my brother to go with me but he had to work. he is very good at racing. but i know i will get better with time. i'm still building a phase 1 z24 for my drag ride, i'm going with an automatic. so racing the prelude is just to find out what it will do, i just wanna have an idea on when i do mod it, how much better it gets.
