I just got my bike done today after a couple of weeks not riding. Anywas i put two HyrdoCoolers by CFM on,Had the header sent to Jet Hot, Put A Slip on K&N filter and Breather, and jetted the carb with a 170 main jet. And it fuckin Screams i hit 92.9mph on a back road in my neighborhood with little space and i have 22/12.50/10 SpiderTracs. I left a raptor by at least a full football field on a 2 mile straight away maybe even more. let me know what you guys all think.

How did you measure the speed? I've got mine to 81 using a trailtech computer, which is 1mph of error plus or minus I think. The only mod I have for performance is a PurePolaris exhaust.

Did you use a radar gun or trailtech computer? If a trailtech computer you should make sure you have it configured correct. 92.9 is pretty fast for a predator. Was it on tar road and what distance and was the road flat or down a hill (lol).

92.9 mph in less than a 1/4 mile on a back dirt road?(not tar) I think somethings wrong with the trail tech. I think I better get out my boots (the tall ones) thats like a 14 sec quarter mile ET, and its was not even a 1/4 So it would even be quicker than 14's I didn't see much hi-po parts in your sig, just a lot of extra weight. sorry...I usualy keep my mouth shut, I spend a lot of time at the track, and it seemed a little on the quick side.....

Locally around my town we have a group of high schoolers who think that there 98 civics can run circles around an LS1 F-body. It is quite funny. This thread reminded me of a kid last week that was trying to convinc me that his neon R/T ran a 15.2 E/t with a speed of 97 mph. Oh and then he went on to tell me that it will go 150 mph. Its people like this that really piss me off! LOL

lol..predator_96, i hear ya..being an avid drag racer myself, i see alot of these clowns that bench race they're cars..a friend of a friend said he could take me in his 01 V6 camaro..well that wasent even a race! LOL The other was a friends brother who had an 88 Pontica GTA with a 350. He said it had all kinds of work done, just rebuilt, blah blah blah, how bad he was gonna beat me at the track, this and that..well my car was lightly modded, gears, exhaust, pullies, about it..well i ran like a [email protected], he ran like a [email protected] THEN after i beat him he went around and told everyone i had 20g into my motor! Talk about a sore looser! I told him, **** with 20g into my car..i'd hope i'd go better then 14.1! LOL
These people are nothing but bench racers..

Oh its all to common! LOL i had a 91 GTA that came with the 350 TPi. Only think i had done was flowmasters and a K&N. This thing had 130000 miles on it and it had a bad ass tranny. The clutches were built up and some other goodies. The torque of those TPI's are crazys sometimes. I ran a 15.05 @96 as a best. I dont know where 96 came from because i ran a 15 flat and it pulled a 93 mph trap speed. The ricers are alot of fun to watch. I would always let them rev the up there fart cans and then i would smoke through first and that tranny woudl just slam into second with a chirp and it was gone! Man i miss that car.

My buddy has a completely stock 93 camaro Z28. This thing has about 85k miles on it. You can call BS on me but he has the slips and i was there he ran a 14.3 @96mph.

What kind of car did u run?...i think we need a new thread lol.

I have an 88 Mustang. I think i have a pic in my profile..if not i'll put one in. Yeah i beleive you on the 93Z. they can move pretty quick. My cousin has a 88 Firebird that had a 305 motor in it..that was a joke, so he bought a 350..hehe, well he still cant keep up!

Now with the mods i had above, (exhaust, pullies, gears) i ran a best of [email protected] with slicks. Thats with a 1.9 60ft time. Not bad...so then i did heads, cam, intake, and a bunch of other stuff..well i ran a [email protected]! Im VERY low on compresion, so i think its time for a rebuild..FFS...

230 at the crank is realistic, knock about 70 to 90 hp off for tranny efficency and you have 150 at the front WHEEL. Stock tires and stock intake yada ya I can't see it running a 14, when a WRX STI will run low 14 or high 13's when it's turbo'd to all 4 wheels with trac- control and a turbo. I'm sorry but usually I am not impressed with these little mini cars, gimme a Saleen running 10's, now thats fast, expensive as all hel, but fast. My boss has 2 Nova's (Chevy II's don't remember if they are nova's) and a C5 vette, his novas run high 10's and low 11's he vette turns 12's on a good day. Hmm, yeah double the weight but double to tripple the HP. I had a 84 SVO (still kicking myself in the ass for selling) never got to drag it but I did run SCCA for a while out at Tucson airport. I'll take a 60 mph road race through winding turns over going a 1/4 mile in 14 seconds. I'm not calling bullshit as a buddy of mine had a 97 neon that he popped a 50 shot of NOS on and it was quick however my SVo could take it with ease, and as for road racing it couldn't come close. Ahhh the days of going fast, now I drive a 4door truck with a v6! 0 to 60 in a little less than my mom!

heh, there is not a 70 - 90 hp loss through a drive train. maybe if your running a ford 9 inch. I would say its close to 190, plus its a transaxle little less loss that a rear wheel drive.

Sorry Erik..seen them run, mid to low 14s are quite possible with this car. I cant see it looseing that much power through the front wheels. ****, most rwd cars loose 10-15% with a manual tranny..15-20% with a poorly built auto..fwd cars are less. The car is light, and thats quite a bit of power its putting down.

I must say that they're still neons, still ugly if you ask me..but thats just my opinion..and you know what they say about opinions! ;)
