I was reading an article about a guy's sentra. He said he ran 17.6 seconds at 77 mph. Sorry, I'm new to this. Does that mean he did a quarter mile in 17.6 seconds and got up to 77 mph in that quarter mile?

I have a '91 Nissan sentra with 182,000 miles on it. I want to do a few small mods on it to get it running a little peppier.

Has anyone tried the new Tornado they have on TV? does it fit on a sentra?

It means he ran the quarter in 17.6 seconds, and reached a speed of 77 mph. But honestly, that is pathetic. The Sentra, even the base XE and GXE model runs it in 16.6 seconds, according to Motor Trend. The SE-R and SE-R Spec V, run it in 15.5 and 15.2, respectivly. The guy either drove an automatic, or doesn't know how to shift.

I think it was an early 90's bone stock model with 130k some odd miles and a slipping clutch.

I'm interested to see how mine would fare in the 1/4 mile. 182095 miles, and I just replaced the clutch

An automatic even goes faster than that. About 17.1 or 2
