    Default Stock ZX2, 16.0 at 85 mph.

    I took the blue-mobile that I bought for my niece to the track last night. My last run I decide to no-lift shift it. Besides, I've got a couple spare trannys. Anyway, I get a high 2.3 60' and pull 16.0 at 85 mph in the 1/4 mile. I don't have the slip, my niece kept it. If she hasn't lost it I'll post it up. She was in the car with me the whole night and weighs about 100 pounds so I could have pulled a 15.9 if I made her wait.... Anyway, the car has 160,000 on it, no options besides power mirrors and rear defrost, knock sensor unplugged, and the air box cut. I think under the right conditions, read lower sea-level, I can get the 15.7 out of it.

    Well with the air box cut and the knock unplugged it's not stock. Good times though! I ran a 16.2 w/ 2.58 60ft with the muffler removed, spec stage I clutch and es inserts. No doubt if I would have cut a 2.3 60ft I could have knocked sub 16 seconds off as well. Good Run man!

    Actually, if you take your car into Ford for service they disable the knock sensor so the only mod I have is a lower cut air box which might add 1 whp. So, I would still say it is stock.

    Alright so get technical with me... Nice run either way most people can't even drive a stock S/R close to a 16 flat.

    I call bull shit. My z has bolt ons and got 16.7 @85.6 MPH. Except for my stock exhaust, after cat, anyways.

    he has no reason to lie.

    edit: the knock sensor pulls alot of timing as well, even under normal conditions so that alone helps alot.

    I can make it worse. I drove it again at our meet and got it down to 15.8 at 86 mph.

    Brian drove it and couldn't do better than 16.2 with it. The driver mod helps a lot.

    If you got 16.7 with bolt-on's then something is wrong with the car or you just really suck at driving. Drag racing in 90 degree temps won't help you either.

    The car is stock with exception of the mods listed. Brian did put my urethane filled mounts in before we went when I got the 15.8 but I don't think that helped that much. I think I could get a 15.7 out of it if Brian didn't hog the car every time we go to the track.

    Oh ok that might explain things somewhat. I've been running in the 90s. I wonder just how much that would affect times.

    My dads Z has 'bolt ons' and a sct base tune and I ran a 16.2 without being to hard on the car at Brads meet last year in Ohio. You just suck at driving. See what my 'bolt on' zx2 with a worked head and stock bottom runs soon.

    I did and it was. I did get wheel hop and spin. I had a good reaction time. I do have the knock mod, too. And I know how to drive. Driver mod not needed. LOL I fuss if the conditions were right, I could've pulled mid 15s with my mods that are listed. Next time.

    You know how to drive it? Do you no lift shift and get the next gear before the rev limiter can bounce more than twice? That how I get 15's out of a stock ZX2.
