    That would be a normal time for an unmodified atx.

    Everything from the 60ft Times, to E.T and MPH look correct. To be honest with you, the Superchip is not a good source of tuning for an automatic ZX2. Sell superchips and purchase an SCT Flash device, get the car dyno tuned or a mail order tune from a reputable dealer with your shift points set @6.5K. Dump the factory manifold and cat in favour of a ZXTuner Header. Those two alone will put you in the 16's.

    H/E/UDP/Crap Tune I did a 16.8@81 with 2.5 60ft times. H/E/UDP/INTAKE/SCT TUNE I did a 10.4 in the 1/8th good for 16.3 in the 1/4. I'm going back in the spring with a re-tune, JohnP IM, 13" 7LBS wheels and Slicks, and a 3500RPM Converter, see what it does.

    Btw you knocked down several tenths from the last time you went... what did you change? Or is it just cooler weather?

    Also you will find that launching off idle with these cars to flash the torque converter will result in lower 60ft times. Brake stalling the car you won't see much more then 2200rpm. From an idle pedal mash the TC will stall to 2400-2500rpm. As long as your tires and the track have traction you should see a better 60ft time.

    This is something I learned after talking to a company that manufactures performance TC.

    Yes it was cooler weather and I also got a fresh tranny rebuild with a shift kit.

    This isn't the street racing section... If your going to knock someone for going to the track and posting his times and making fun of him you better danm well say you have a slip to prove you have went....

    Post it up big man, lets see what kind of times you lay down?

    Post those slips too then!

    I don't want to slam you, but honestly there's alot of talk on the forums about who's car does what, and who is faster then who. I've seen alot of mid 16 second S/R's who guys thought were 14 second cars...

    This is a wonderful forum where the B.S Stops & The Time Slips do the talking.

    Fancy Dyno Sheets mean nothing here, MPH is the indication of a powerful car.
