it could be a lack of skill...i didnt say i was a pro

but i had 9 runs on track.....and my best run was 15.67

i tried different launch rpms and still no improvement....


i plan to do a tune (chip)
before i do that or any work on my car...i wanna make sure that my compression is good

if it runs great and is not burning oil, then it is sealing properly.

how is your base timing?
