BMR: for some reason, I listed my DR's as 275's. They've always been 305's if you have time to correct it.

I will get Brett to come in here and edit that for you.

We went to the track last night to do some final testing of our new 15" brake/spindle package and bested our 60' time. Out of 7 runs, 6 of them were under 1.5 with a best of 1.437. Most were just 1/8 mile passes since we were mainly focused on launching technique but we did run it out a couple of times and managed a 10.19@131mph.

ZL45 - Progress .. 1.675

Well - considering I am a M6 - was hanging in the 2.0's / 1.9's - then got myself in a few weeks to the 1.8's and a high 1.79 ---- adding BMR Trailing arms and a little more power on launch - I was pretty pleased with this 1.675 60's and was just getting warmed up before a few small issues....

Here's mine:

60 ft/time: 2.117
Tire Brand/Type: M&H
Tire Size: 325/17 DR
Suspension Upgrades: BMR Trailing Arms
Drivetrain Upgrades: None

It's great when you actually see the benefits a few small changes will make!! A little more practice and you'll be in the 1.5's!!!

Agree - trust me, the run was not what I wanted or should be pulling - but the 60' was showing progress. This was my 2nd run after driving the car for 3 hours to the event.... it was the next 2 runs I planned to "get heavy" into the car - and ran into an issue so those runs were scrapped. $hit happens and it did ... My focus was trying to be 60' improvement and "harder launch" - On this 1/8th I did the first run into 3rd gear.... seemed like a wasted shift - pulled this run thru 2nd only and it's funny you can hear the tower mention that at the end of the run.

Net-net ... was a baby step and was happy to see it was "possible" to not completely suk in my 60's
