But that's still very impressive. The guys out at Camaro5fest in +3800 ft DA were running slower than that with superchargers on their cars.

I'm just trying to show people that cars can run real fast times if the conditions are right. It can be hard for people to believe when someone runs unusually fast. Had he trapped 117 mph in +1000 ft. conditions, I woudn't believe it. It just wouldn't add up. But in cold air with high pressure, real fast times are possible.

Thanks for all the comments guys and for the corrections.....yes it was a good day at the track. It was definately some unusual conditions...

The car is very fast......and I have had a professional tuner looking over my shoulder while tuning this car and he said my tune is "perfect"

I like to give myself a little credit here

To trap 116 you have to be laying down in the 470 rwhp range.....and to get there, you need more than what you have.

Either that or you have a true freak.

Don't take offense to this, but I know what's done to my car even if you don't believe it

As was stated it was some supreme conditions and the car is well....it is pretty fast. I'm also missing some exhaust components which could be helping my numbers.......if you know what I mean.......meow

Let's see. You have a 9 second car. I don't have a 9 second car. I'll take a 2.5 second handicap.

His car is going to run much faster than average in those conditions. If he was running in average conditions (say +1000 ft DA), his time would have been around 12.2 - 12.3 @ 114 mph or so.

Its the ATCO effect. N.E. tracks (low elevation) combined with cold weather equals crazy fast times.
How does Dragtimes know what the conditions are at the Valley?
