i get spinning wheels, never dragged before
but the car made it! i did like 10 runs
it was more of a test to see if the ka would blow... its my first time really putting pressure on it

not bad for 15 bux all night and its a mile away

i beat a few accords and civics i felt good.
i got owned by a 5.0 mustang though

Bart put down lots of time at the dragstrip, so you might ask him stuffs.

Hella flush and all associates should be gunned down for brainwashing people into thinking a 225 and lots of camber is proper wheel fitment. THAT IS EASY, anyone can camber a skinny as tire till it dosnt rub. Now fitting an 11 with a 315 on stock fender with reasonable camber, that is fitment. And looks, and performs better than both.
i dont own a s12 at the moment but trying to acquire one to get rid of my s13 hatch

anyone wanna do a rough estimate of what that would do in a 1/4 mile?

Edit: A shitty online calculator says this.

Your ET computed from your vehicle ET of 10.182 seconds is 15.88 seconds in Quarter Mile.

yeah dude, work on that 60' and 330' and you'll be running low 15 high 14 quarter mile times.

I dont know shit about 1/8th mile times, I dont see them often enough to know whats good or bad.

is that ka a single or dual cam???  10 isn't bad at all for a n/a motor... I think i was doing mid to low 9's with a stock dual cam turbo so your only a little bit behind.
I finally broke down and got 240.
But it's a Vert with 18's and a 5spd :)

Definitely work on 60 ft time and learn how to feather your clutch for launch.

Not too bad, my shitty 1/8 pass was 9.1xx... Really bad 60ft and RT, the track was like driving on water.

I'd like to hit really high 12's this year, but I don't think that's going to happen on 205 street tires.

i wonder how that would calculate to 1/4 mile times?

seat time will make better, but ill bet it could benifit from 8-9in wide wheels and tires, and some flat sticky tires

wait, how are you spinning tires with a welded? stock n/a ka24e + welded = no spinning

A welded diff just means both axles are receiving power, it doesnt keep tires from spinning.

they must not prep the track what so ever. drag strip is supposed to be much stickier than the street. like if i try to launch my streetbike on the street, it just spins. if i launch it on the strip, it will try to flip backwards before it spins
