Great job. I'll bet it was fun. I love the baby seat in the back!

I had to drive mine home so I couldn't "go for broke" but I think I rung her out the best I could today.
Our cars come with no lift feature, meaning u shift with foot all the way down on throttle...... Sounds like u need to go back.

I wasn't implying that its a crappy pass. You guys were wondering where it stood so I supplied the info. Go get some sticky tires and try it again. Just don't brake anything!!

No, it's a good way to kill the synchro's in your transmission.

I didn't know that/didn't use it...Is that listed somewhere? I use to shift my EVO that way without a no-lift feature (1.5/1.6 60s, 11.3 @ 122) and the car needed 2 trans rebuilds in the 40K miles I kept it. Maybe for one glory pass, but I wouldn't use it every time.

I didn't take it that way at all....I like data and targets I was thinking I might get some rims /drag radials and see what she will do with only that as an upgrade. I have always liked to show that a stock can run strong times with a little seat time.

Thank you and sorry I was incorrect. I just double checked and then corrected above...Our last Recaro Profit was 22lbs, the Recaro VIVO booster is listed as 11lbs....Now I did have a full Gym bag, 2 California dusters, a roadside assist kit (jumper cables, flares ect). some detailer and a bunch of towels in the trunk so I figure a total of 25lbs extra is still accurate

I also see you mph'ed 110.21 earlier that day.
What kind of car seat was that? Maybe Apex should sell them too.

Doesn't an 110. MPH equate to a mid 12. pass?

Though it may not be recommended every time, I can not believe that shifting without lifting is going to hurt anything on these cars, as long as it is not done continually. If it does, this will be the first GM manual tranny car that I have owned or driven that was damaged by doing this on occasion.
