      Another note on my weight reduction

      Stock curb weight for an '08 manual 5 speed is 2975lbs.

      I've removed:
      Spare w/ tools ~35lbs.
      Entire rear seat ~70lbs.
      Front Passenger seat ~65lbs.
      Stock Mufflers ~25lbs.
      9.75 gal of gas ~58.5lbs.
      engine cover ~5lbs.

      Total = 258.5lbs. removed

      2975lbs - 285.5lbs = 2716.5lbs.

      add 22lbs for my skidplate and my car weighs in at about 2,738.5lbs.

      Sorry for the HUGE delay in updating work has been killing me with overtime. My car ran like #$@% and then I popped out the vagcom and did a scan....guess who needs to get his coils replaced under VW's program My R/T were nice got a few .1's and unfortunately red lit once with a -0.0012 but still got my trophy and a kill sticker. Best time was my 1st run (before the CEL popped up) and was a 16.18@85mph CEL popped up on the return lane. Threw the Jetta on the scales on the way back and realized I was pig heavy. Car was 3600lbs with me in it!

      still awesome times im sure with some drag radials and lighter wheels you would hit 14's easy.

      Since the search function sucks. How high are you guys launching the car. Most likely not dropping the clutch, slipping it i suppose? I havent launched my car yet....this dam clutch is too soft i still cant find the engagement point. I'm guessing around 3k or so. Those are some pretty good numbers though. This motor has potential.

      better tires and smaller wheels should get you there.

      i ran my jetta today at Waterfest and my best time of three runs was 16.255 @ 86.38 but it was 100 degrees today and i'm not sure about the humidity. I ran against an APR stage 2 1.8t beetle and he only did 15.205 @ 90.48 . My mods are C2 93oct tune, BSH CAI and AWE cat back and i was running 225's

      Hey guys, been lurking for a while, but after my second time at the track, I decided to post.
      My best run of the night:

      R/T .953 (I know...)
      60' 2.385
      330 6.827
      1/8 10.501
      MPH 67.69
      1000 13.587
      1/4 16.182
      MPH 84.67

      This was my fourth time ever racing at the track and I was a little nervous as I was racing my dads V6 Grand Prix... But I won
      Also ESP was on!!! and somehow it was my best time ever, seemed to get lucky and the ESP hooked up well without really dropping the rpms. To think if I had a .5 reaction time like the rabbit I raced later that night, I would have been looking pretty good for a jetta.

      BTW its a 2005.5 2.5 with a P-Flow. Pulled the spare, sub and passenger seat.

      bumping this up

      I personally have not made it to the track yet this season. I'm hoping to get one night of runs in before the season is over even though I don't have any new performance mods.

      I really wanna see someone put their NA bunny into the 14's. I know there are a few NA rabbits out there that could easily do it.

      I will be trying before the end of the season. I really want to go. I think the car will be faster than my 1.8t was @15.4. Fingers are crossed!!

I should be putting down alittle over 200whp at 7000rpms so I think I'd have a pretty nice time. I want to dyno my car first tho after I get everything installed so I actually know how much power Im putting down. Please don't quote me on these numbers yet, they're just my estimates so far.

      if you have the oportunity to go to the track first please do because most tracks shut down for the winter!

      With the HEP manifold and jeff's tuning i think you can get that thing into the 14's easily if you get a good run in. I'm dying to get my hands on one but I just don't have the money at the moment and the closest shop to me for the tune is 15 hours away.

      I think you just might be able to get the first NA bunny in the 14s

      I did go to the track last night and didn't do as well as a I would have liked. I had the trap speed to beat my p.r. of 15.4 with my 1.8T, but I wasn't launching very well and only managed a 15.6 @ 92. Oh well, hopefully I'll have better luck next time. I think I had more fun today at my first scca autocross event.

      I ran my jetta at the fall show and go yesterday at englishtown. My best time was 15.442 at 89.5mph. I had another run in the 15.4's but my other times were in the 15.5's. I'll post the slips
      later after I'm done with classes. Mods to car are:
      C2 93oct, AWE exhaust, BSH CAI, took my summer wheels off already so just running on 205 all seasons. Car had no weight reduction and at atleast a half tank if not more

      Thanks! I will try to make a return visit to the track before the end of the season. I don't know if it will make a difference, but I still have yet to install the bfi tranny mount insert. I hope to get that done this week and give it another try.

      drag racing season is just heating up in El Paso. Winter is actually the best time to run here. Cars a few stretch bolts away from coming off the disabled list. Any predictions for c2 stg 2 on meth with an LSD on denvers at about 3600 feet
