I would say you really just need to work on getting the 60' down.... I would work on your launch and watching how you stage.

I would "shallow" stage, which means you roll the car forward just far enough to turn on the "stage" lights (top is pre-stage, bottom is stage). I creep forward incredibly slowly when i want to shallow stage... just enough to get the bottom lights on. What this does is it basically gives you a running start! This will help your ET and Trap speed, but you'll most likely kill your reaction time, which at this point you don't care about, since you are looking to improve your ET....

Next... how are you launching? You mention 800 RPM? So i'm assuming left foot on the brake, right on the gas... are you punching the gas AS you are letting off the brake? (should be kind of a one fluid motion). Also you may want to try bumping the RPM just a bit more... maybe try 1000 to 1200 RPM..

Also, as rtcatman pointed out, your taller tires aren't helping... they've changed your effective gear ratio... didn't change it much.. but it still a change in the wrong direction for getting out of the hole..

Could I try and buy better lower control arms, would that help? Also, I am looking at mickey Thompson street tires to run on my DD maybe that will help.

The control arms will help with wheel hop. I am not sure that is really causing you any issue. I only experienced wheel hop once. I did buy some suspension items from someone here on camaro5 because I could not pass up the deal.

As for the
Mickey Thompson's which ones?

Interesting, as those are the tires I am considering to go with when my current ones are worn out.

Will they help over your current ones. Good question. My gut tells me yes, as I know MT's does make some good tires for performance.

Maybe others can chime in on those tires too.

Help with 60' time

2012 A6
Tires used on the pass:front cooper zeon 245's rear nitto invo 275's
Performance Mods (if any): CAI and mrt2 exhaust
Transmission:Automatic
Category submitted for: Bolt on

1320’ mph…98.19
Name of the track:San Antonio Raceway
Date of pass: 11/15/2013

Need some help. This was my first run of the day and it was my best. After this run I was getting really bad times, like 2.7 60' and 15 second 1/4 mile. Not sure if it was just a bad day or what was going on.
If I leave it in D should I let off the gas some when I get close to red line, I've had it stay in red and not shift before. Didn't sound good.
Anyways what are some helpful tips?
What mods should I go for to get better times?

Welcome to the forum. Glad to see you have posted your times. We have plenty of people who should chime in for help.

1st. I don't think Invo's make a great drag racing tire. Nice street tire, yes, but not so much for drag racing. If you really want to lay down the best times you can, look to run with some drag radials. If that cannot be done and you have to stay with the Invo's, did you change drop the tire PSI? If so, to what? DId you perfomr any burnouts? Some stock tires need a little heat, while others only get worse after a short burnout.

2nd. What was the weather conditions like? Cold? Hot?

3rd Track conditions? Sticky? Slick? How were others doing at hooking up?

Put it in sport mode and let the computer and Camaro do all ths hifting for you. This is the best you will get, you cannot outshift the computer in the automatics.

Back to better times..........Drag radials will help for sure. performance mods, since you have the LFX, you cannot get headers, however, you can still look at the Ice-olator, ported throttle body, and even a tune.

All depends on your end goal and moeny you want to spend.

Hope this helps.

Extendolator, not Iceolator, but close enough. They're working on the Extendolator now so it isn't publicly available yet. http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showth...307431&page=11

Also for bolt-ons don't forget Solo HFCs.

Like rtcat600man said, some tires like to be heated up a bit, others don't, and even then it can depend on weather conditions. But, that's what test and tune is for!

For me, I can't really cook the tires anyway, nor would I want to as they're my only set and this is a DD. Trouble is lack of lsd/posi on the V6 auto, and for that you're talking rear end swap. So aside from that, I do a quick spin and leave at 1k rpm on third yellow in sport mode with nannies off and hope for the best. Some folks turn nannies off for the burnout and back on for launch but I feel that robs you of power way too much. I can get quicker times in the same conditions even if I slip a bit. Kinda depends on if you're racing heads up or bracket and how well you know your car under the conditions.

No reason you can't hit a 2.1 60' with your setup. 2.0 on the other hand I think is a bit tough. I haven't hit it yet anyway.

1. I dropped them down to 29 psi. No burnouts
2. It was a little cloudy and about 70 degrees.
3. A mustang that I regularly compete with was hooking up and getting his usual numbers, but he does a burnout before his passes so that could be something. Towards the end of the night it drizzled and the track closed down.
I can't afford a super charger or turbo, but I think everything else is doable.

Third time's a charm Same 2013 6 speed auto LFX Camaro. Front tires were at 42 psi and rear tires at 38 psi. Other passes were 13.970 @ 101.03, 14.031 @ 100.65, and 14.045 @ 100.14. We finally did it! Many thanks to the staff at State Capitol for doing a great job of prepping the track. Big thanks to some of y'all on here for the tips. And BIGGEST thanks to my dad, could not have done this without you

Another V6 auto below 14.00? Even worse is this one was bone stock with the factory BFGs. You people suck.

Holy crap 2LS running under a 14 flat?? Sounds almost unbelievable but that negative 700 DA surely helped.
