first time at the track

well for fun i want to fontana speedway street legals drag race event this weekend 2/28/2010 with my mustang. i ran a fastest of 14.983 1/4 mile which i know sucks for a 3v mustang...i couldn't launch it so yeah. only thing done to it are frpp shorty headers and cat back with stock cats. and this has 3.23 gears and not the optional 3.55's

Talk about a sore loser

What RPM were you launching at? I've seen stockish s197's run consistant 13's on street tires.

Yeah, multiply that rpm times 3 and you'll get a much better launch

Thats a great shot! Very sharp car too btw!

If your exhaust tip is larger than your cylinder bore, then you are a Ricer.
