Can someone give me some advice on the helmet? I need to buy one cause they require it for 13.99 or faster cars. Looking at e-bay, there are a lot of M2005 Snell approved (which the autoclub dragway site states 2000 is necessary now, and 2005 as of 2012), but does the M stand for motorcycle? Does it matter if I use a M2005, or does it have to be SA2005?

As long as it's snell approved. That is all that matters.

Yes, I'll be there . I was just there two weeks ago on 7/30 with MatchbookSS and a couple other C5 fellas.

I probably won't be there till 5ish. N

The M does stand for motorcycle but it is still good for running there. The 2000 will expire at the end of this year. Go with a 2005 or better yet a 2010 and you will not have to worry about getting a new one for many years to come.

What are you mods and is yours stick or auto?

Very few stock Camaros are in the 13's so you may not need a helmet.

I only have a CAI actually. And it's a stick. But, I have faith in my driving / shifting abilities and reaction time.

Happy birthday bro, mine isnext weekend. My girls is this weekend that's why I can't make it to Fontucky. I gotta get the car into the low 11's there. I think after a new clutch and before they make me install a roll bar I can do it.

As long as you have some track experience, you will be in the 13s .

If you've never ran down a 1/8 or 1/4 mile before, it's a different beast than the street......13s will take some practice.

Back in 2000 when I had my M6 LS1 SS (intake / exhaust), i had never ran down a track. The first time I took it down the track in Fontana I ran a mid 14 @ 103......I thought something was wrong with my car..... . With some practice I eventually got it down to 13.6 @ 107.

One thing for sure.........it's addicting!

I never ran mine 100% completely stock. I have minor bolt ons.....see sig.......stock tires, stock tune, stock headers. My times are in my sig. They were from two weeks ago in 90ish degree weather. The DA was over 3000. Today's weather shouldn't be much better :(

Btw, I do have two 10" speakers, an AMP, and a large speaker box that I always leave in the trunk when I race (too hard to take out)......30-40 lbs.

The fastest I have seen stock was DonO in his auto. I think he ran a best of 13.5, 13.7 then a 13.3 with stock tires and everything stock on his car.

My fastest NA was 12.0 and 10.9 with some juice.

I try to make as many events as I can but I took the family to Rosarito for the weekend.

Ran the car four times tonight. MPH was very consistent... I need to work on my 60 fts. Traction was actually very good. I bogged on every run. It was a pleasure meeting up with some of the fellas and new faces.....nice meeting you Joey and the Marine from Camp Pendelton (sorry forgot your first name :().

Mods / Condition of vehicle: CAI intake, JBA midpipes with cats, Borla ATAK catback, Phadt trailing arms.. Full weight vehicle (stock tires, stock tune etc.)....nothing removed, actually weight added: 35+ lb speaker box containing two 10" speakers and an AMP in the trunk....1/8 tank of gas.

R/T...... .680
60'...... 2.150
330..... 5.922
1/8th... 8.923
MPH.... 82.27
1000.. 11.463
1/4.....13.560
MPH....108.03 New best MPH!!! (DA 3116....Corrected 13.05 @ 112.31
___________

R/T...... .416
60'...... 2.149
330..... 5.836
1/8th.. 8.788
MPH.... 83.24
1000.. 11.289
1/4.....13.365 New best ET!!
MPH....108.65 New best MPH again!!! (DA 2845....Corrected 12.91 @ 112.55 MPH)
___________

R/T...... .281
60'...... 2.171
330..... 5.882
1/8th... 8.834
MPH.... 83.49
1000.. 11.335
1/4.....13.410
MPH....109.00 New best MPH again!!! (DA 2439....Corrected 13.02 @ 112.29)
___________

On this last run, as I was staging, my light suddenly went red........ Knowing the clock had started (for whatever reason), I just punched the gas and ran for MPH only rather than ET:

R/T...... .LB3A (don't know what that means)
60'...... 3.789
330..... 7.479
1/8th... 10.428
MPH.... 83.47
1000.. 12.928
1/4.....15.003
MPH....109.02 New best MPH again!!! (DA 2370....Corrected 14.58 @ 112.21)

Hope to see you at the next track day...........

Mike
