Guys,
This is probably aimed at Dave (mitsiman) more than anyone else, but I'm interested in hearing from people who are pulling 1.4, 1.5 or 1.6 60' times in FWD drag cars

I was down the track last weekend and did a 10.45@142 but my 60' times are crap, on that run 1.87

I've got loads of power left on tap to play with but need to get my 60' times down

At the moment I run

MT 26.0/10.0-15
D2 coilovers all round with 21kg springs
front traction bars
front anti lift straps
I'm launching with 7200rpm and 0.5 bar boost off the line and sidestep the clutch
quaife diff
ppg 4 speed drag gearbox


Heres a slow motion video of my 1.87 launch
Slow-mo Launch #2 - YouTube

Here's a a couple of pics....

I think you will find that Dave no longer visits these boards.

1.87" definitely is pretty slow 60ft time considering FWD cars on street legal tires can get below 2.0 seconds.
FTOs and Lancers are the same chassis and if you check this one out it is running a SOHC NA motor and did a 1.6209 60ft time:

You might get some ideas from that forum as there are members there who run 1.8 SOHC turbo motors and have achieved low 10 second quarter miles.

What has your best 60ft time been?

Is it possible they just have less weight to launch, better tires/suspension setups?
I would expect in a FWD class you'd be up against Honda Civics etc, and they definitely have a weight advantage. Once prepped for drag use these things are probably in the 700kg range.

Also I think a lot of them have the nose slanted down a lot whereas your cars looks relatively level.

no we all weigh about the same due to class restrictions, and Im probably in a better situation as I have more weight over the front due to a cast block where theirs are ali.

To be honest I do not think this makes a difference, but Honda motor spin the other way in the engine bay
