I don't know for sure, my guess is 3900 even. But if I can find a place to weight it I will.

I have LSR toe rods and trailing arms.

Thinking out loud I might have a mid to high 11.8 in the car with a little more work on the shift points. But to go 11.7's I'd have to pull some weight out.

Solid run.
Take the rear seat out and take out the passenger seat and all the shit in the trunk like the tire kit, and have about a quarter tank of gas, and you'll shave 120+

Good run John!
You've still got a good 2 months of track time. Shave weight and dial in the tune a bit more and see if you can cut another few tenths off of it.

Yeah Dan last year I race until mid November.

Jeff I had the trunk stuff all out, and was at 1/4 tank.

I do think there is a tenth or left just in tuning, and another tenth(?) if I pull the seats.

I'd say another tenth in the seats, sure.
11.7x is surely possible.

I'm thinking the same thing. I have a light battery here and I also have a buddy who is 135. I'm 215. I might try him in the seat too if it would go 11.6....

Congrats John!! I knew you would get there! I agree with Dan, get your tune dialed in solid, shave weight, and ultimate DA and I think you can maybe knock .3 off that time. And if someone doubts you, prove them wrong!

Jeff says I can knock 3 tenths off.. 11.6's... Hmm. Sure I'll try it why not.

Mike...
Seats still in, bumper supports in. Stock battery.

Weight drop from all trunk stuff out, 44 lb fronts, and the weight drop we get from doing exhaust and a converter etc.

Ryan thanks again for the tuning, you da man! I'll ping you before the next outing.

It was like 40 DA when I ran 11.90, and it was 40 DA for most of today. Not mineshaft air.
