Congrats on the nice time. I have been out to Lapeer 13 times int he past 3 years with my Camaro, making over 150 passes. The one thing I can count on at that track is the inconsistency of track prep. Sometimes we hook sometimes we don't. I would think that if you can catch the right day, (usually early spring or late fall), with good air, get those tires warmed up well, allowing that 60' to drop a little more. You should see another tenth or two while still in stock trim.

Have you heard of our club?

Detroit 5th Gen Camaro club.

http://www.detroit5thgen.com/members/home

Come check it out, join us, we have many members who go out to Lapeer and make a day of it. We do many of the local events together and hang out often at various locations. Would love to see another 1LE join up.

Thanks. Yes, at Becky D recommendation I actually joined the Detroit 5th Gen site, I just haven't been there much. I will make it a point to check it out.

I have seen your car around the area, (It looks great) not sure where but I was out at the Bakers event last Saturday so it may have been there???

Thanks,
Matt

Thank - you and yes, I was at Baker's. Hope to meet up with you then at another event. Maybe even at Lapeer in the fall.

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
