What's your personal ET goals/plans.

So what's your personal ET goals, plans, & set up for your car? And why? REALISTIC goals, lol!!!! Mine is at least a 8.2 eighth mile(closest track) on these Pirelli's before I mod. I'd like 8.0, but REALISTICALLY even in perfect conditions I don't think it'll happen on street tires.

In the past I've always modded first, then learn the car. Just wanted to try something different this time. And while I've never owned a stupid fast 8 or 9 second car...I have owned full bolt on/ FI cars that after some time became too much for a DD. You know...loud steep gears, heavy clutch,, loud shifter, loud/hot exhaust, rattling everywhere. I'd just rather not go that route again! A second camaro would be ideal!!!!

When I first got the car I wanted to stay NA, but now I'm thinking sleeper...maybe turbos, I don't know??? So let's hear it! What's your ET goals/plans/RWHP# for your car???

Ha Ha My goal keep moving on me. Started at 12.50 1/4 mile 2 year ago. Last year 11.70 to 11.00. This past year 10.85 to 10.41. Now am looking for 10.20

2 year ago after the cam & SC and 586 RWHP went from 11.70 to 10.41 1/4 mile with 6.67 1/8 mile. But that came with 3 different rear gear 3 different wheel & tire combo and 2 trans and convertor.

WHERE DOSE IT END LOL

My original goal was a 10.5 summer car.

Done.

Now, just for giggles, I'm shooting for that 9.99x time slip.

Take the stock bottom end 6 speed title from my friends at Cartek.

Then push the envelope further to the point that LPE is at. It'll take time and money, but, it'll be worth it.

Should be fun!

My goal is 11.39 with Bolt Ons Only. The car definitely has it in it. Just need a great pass with some deep neg DA. After that, my plan is to join the GPI cammed club and rock some mid 10's NA.

My goal is 10's eventually, but hopefully mid-12's while still qualifying for the stock class at C5Fest this year since it don't look like I will be able to get an ECS set up till the week after fest.

I would like to go high 10's. I think that's respectable for a 4200 lb. street car. I have the power, just need to get the launch right.

11.4s this spring with some fine tuning, then mid 10s on spray. All good for my street machine.
