a lot of new builds coming out soon. i cant wait to see how things shake out!
Pretty sure I'll keep 2 top spots. 1/8 mile bone stock LS3 and the stock tire 60' record. There hasn't been much movement on the bone stock lists in a while, and I don't have the wallet to chase the other categories. I'm happy to just sit back and watch.

I wish! I am one of the original that saw the 2006 concept, fell in love, and still doesn't have his car yet. BUT, I may finally put an end to my suffering. Soon... 7 years I have patiently waited. 7 very long years. It will not be 8.

So much to choose from now. Back then, there was only 1 model. It made the decision easy. Now it's a much tougher choice. So, which way are you leaning?

Well, I was pretty dead set on just a regular old SS. But a particular moderator keeps firing off emails about how awesome the 1LE is. Now I'm not so sure.

118 trap speed is good enough for 11's.

Yea, Im thinking if I get my 60' down some my MPH will drop a little though too. Im really hoping to get that 'driver mod' and get it down in the 11's. We'll see how it goes next time at the track though, this track is very poorly kept. Ill be going to one of the best tracks in the country, Norwalk, the next time I go to the track. So track prep should be better and Ill probably have my new clutch before I run my car again so that will help with the launches. 60' is definitely killing me though. Atleast the car is consistent though, its definitely more seat time that I need.

Stone stock 2010 2SS/RS A6 18,000 miles on stock Pirrelli's 1/2 tank of Shell 91 DA was 595.

Best pass 60ft 2.105 1/8th 8.737 at 84.05mph 1/4 13.418 at 106.91.

Next time out she gets Sunoco 94 and the 5/20 fuse mod

It couldn't hurt. Report back if the fuse pull does the trick.

You have a pretty quick car and must be a real good driver your stock time is awesome.

What was the DA on that run?

A quick check with Dragtimes shows that the DA was anywhere from -500 to -750 depending on what time the run was.

Well, I broke her after going racing Wednesday Night fun night. On the way back it drove pretty weird, so I took it to my dads after I got off work Thursday. We had it on the lift and he went through the gears and you could hear the throw out bearing. After he shut it off he hit the clutch pedal again and then the throw out bearing failed and we got a nice puddle of brake fluid on the floor. Not what I wanted to spend the money on but o well, should have ordered one when I realized one wasn't in the clutch kit I ordered and knocked it out in one drop of the transmission.

But ran a best of 12.08 @ 117. Had a good bit of 12.1X's to boot after starting the night out horribly. Rolled through the lights twice and car wouldn't go into second twice. Which both were probably because of the throw out bearing being ready to go out. Im just glad It didn't blow going down the track.

Went to the track last night and had some awesome DA (800-1100), so I figured Id run pretty good. I was wrong, I ran slower with the same 60' as I have ran in 2300+ DA, MPH was down ~3mph then what it typically runs. Wish I had the means to data log it last night. Only made 3 passes and 12.008 was the best I could do

Mine ended the beginning of last month when I toasted another clutch. TH400 is in the works though, clutch issues solved.

Atleast 5 months before our tracks open back up.

First passes in my car tonight. Just CAI w/ scoop, and MBRP catback for HP mods. BMR rear suspension mods as well. On street tires...

12.665 1/4 mile ET
111.45 1/4 mile trap speed
1.988 60' time

Couldn't complain, considering my first pass was a 13.45@109.9 (I bogged it badly). Second pass was 12.75 before the final 12.66. Wanted to shoot for 12.5xxx...but ran out of time
