Think I will keep using mine as the sports car I intended it to be.
Not bad at all, stock turbo Eco's shine best at the 1/8th so the air pollution might've done you a favor lol.So before the event I just went too I had never been drag racing, and my car really isn’t set up for doing that, however it did surprise me how well it did.
quick mod list of actual performance mods
tires: Bridgestone potenza all seasons
EBay charge pipes
EBay intercooler (3x the size of stock)
K&n drop in filter
3” turbo back catless exhaust, mbrp street from the “cat” section back
93 race tune from bama
So the event was 1/8th mile runs due to the amount of smoke in Alberta at the time ( the city closest, Edmonton, had the worst air quality in the world on the day of this event ) my best time was 8.79. My car doesn’t have launch control or 2 step so I was just break boosting to launch with 20 psi in the all seasons. Car on track mode With traction control fully disabled
Most of the other runs I had were in the high 8’s low 9’s which in my opinion is pretty decent for a car not setup for drag racing. And I did “win” some of the pairings. I was quicker than all of the challenger r/t’s at the event, went against a couple of Subarus, 2 wrx’s and a brz won against 1 of the 2 wrx’s and the brz. I was about 1 second slower than a manual 2020 mustang gt with a blower and drag slicks ( altho after talking to him, he said he’s trying not to kill his clutch ) and I was consistently quicker than the other ecoboost mustang that was at the event
This is a video from the event, not the most exiting drag race ever but I had fun
Also there was a professional photographer there that got some great pics of my car, I’ll probably end up buying a few of the photos from him.
lol probably. I ended up having to leave before the burnout contest because the ibuprofen was loosing the fight against the migraine I was getting.Not bad at all, stock turbo Eco's shine best at the 1/8th so the air pollution might've done you a favor lol.
