Post your 1/4 times/slips here...

This thread is for everyone to show/tell what they run in the 1/4. Right now I have no idea personally, so I won't even guess.

Anyone in the 13's on here?

I went out to the Import Drags at the drag strip this weekend, and I swear, my car could beat more than half of those out there, and it's just a 3.0. There were a couple of low 14's Civics, and a classic Z car running 12's, and a couple of low 14 Eclipses, but other than those, I know the Probe could have taken out many of the preludes, civics, integras, neons, and other stuff out there..

I NEED A HELMET! Anyone know what a used one could run for? I should call Play It Again Sports!

Usually NHRA rules only require a helmet if you are quicker than 13.99...so if you are, get one :D

Oh, and since this is the 1/4 mile thread, I guess I could post my time as well...a best of 13.36 @ 105 (like Scamper said)...

Here's my timeslip:





Hitting 12's will be pretty hard (and expensive) - I need a bored TB, lighter flywheel, UDP, and slicks...all a little more than $1,200...

93 Probe GT - for sale! $5,300.

95 Probe GT - the 007 version - smooth and refined.

RC Engineering (southern California) bores out Probe throttle bodies from 60mm (stock) to 65mm (most popular performance application).
