So I was cleaning out some things today and I found a huge stack of 1/4 mile time slips. The beauty part is I wrote the mods on the back side. Here is like a timeline with mods from 1995-2003 when I went to the track all the time. I took a few time slips out and posted them below with mods. For those who don't go to the track here is how a brand new 1994GT performed stock, then induction, the heads / Cam / Intake / Exhaust and then all of the with Forced Induction. Might give you an idea what your car will run. Enjoy.

That's really cool man. You didn't happen to make these runs at Moroso in Palm Beach at the time? I was out there running similiar times in a 93' Electric Currant Red GT.

Cool stuff Vib.
I was actually keeping track of all my runs on excel. I only have 115 trips down the 1/4mile.
Here is my summary of each year with the best times/speed for that year and mods made to my car.

standalone


The red numbers are my best ever for that catagory (r/t, 60', 330', 1/8e/t, 1/8mph, 1000', 1/4e/t, 1/4mph)
Last 4 years I've moved twice and was overseas for 14 months altogether.
Really puts a dampner on racing :(

Its really cool to see where you start out with a car and where it ends up. I started with my 95 GT in the mid 15's I think the first few times I ever went drag racing. By the time I sold it it was a 12.7 car. My current 94 Cobra first run was a 14.2 and as of the last best time to date a few years ago it was a 12.5. I remember how pumped I was the first time I ever saw a 12 light up on the board and the same reaction when I finally got a 12.5 with the cobra.

Thats cool man I worked at a dragstrip for about 8 years and it was wild that some of the older bracket racers would have timeslips in boxes in there trailer from 30 or 40 years ago. Back when there was no compulink or auto start and the tickets were hand written. All you got was 1/4 mile e.t. and mph and win or loss
