1/4 Mile fun. 11.90 sec w/o SC

So, to spice things up a bit and try something different from track I signed up for a drag strip event in Famoso, CA.

It was Import Faceoff event and it was packed with people and their insanely loud civics and such. They were clearly given a priority and in the whole day our Test and Tune group did only 3 runs. WTF.

Despite my first time at this type event, I managed to pull off 11.90 run on my last and final 3rd run. I though it was pretty decent, but I still think there is room to make it quicker. My 0-60 MPH time was 4.5 sec which is far more than 4 seconds flat I could do not too long ago on the street..

MS pulleys and MS Stage 2 intake
Full Akra Evo
Evolve Tune
Hankook RS3

- No LC, it just doesn't work for shit for me. Lots of tire spinning, but it seems like the car doesn't upshift from the second gear. It just sucks, I can't figure it out
- DSC off
- Full throttle burn out in first two gears
- S5 mode
- Sport Plus
- I ran 31 psi from my normal street 36 cold, but I think it didn't help any

Temperature was 50F, elevation 300 ft, dry

Here is the video and some pics
