houston import faceoff

ok so this weekend i went to houston for the import face off and seeing as how ive never raced my lude i just entered it in the test/tune to do some free runs. so on my first run, i pull up to do a little burnout before my run and finish that and drop my e-brake (or so i thought) as im about a litle over half way down the 1/4 mile im like, this thing is not pullin at all and i see my dash has the brake light lit. i look down and my e-brake is like 30% engaged. dropped it all the way and i took off. felt like a huge retard. so with the e-brake on i did a 17.2
next run, i did just fine, but when i pulled around the booth to get my time the lady handed me my slip. i take a look and it says 11.6 at 122mph. this was not my time slip.
3rd and final run. everything went off without a hitch, pulled up. had a 0.073R/T and ended up with a 16.2 e/t at 86.4 mph not too bad for a base model prelude with leather, a full interior, and the SS tranny. however, this simply will not do for me. time to do further upgrades....

check my readers ride page for some pics and a video of my run.

Re: houston import faceoff

It's okay, for the first time everyone makes the little mistakes.
I was really nervous when i first ran my car, didn't know how to read the lights correctly.

After a few runs and getting the nervousness out of your system, i actually got an all time best R/T of .030!

No worries man, glad you had a good time at the track. post those pics here as well...
