yea last time I went I showed up around 6 and it started to get crowded real quick. My best run that night was 8.7 but it was really hot and for some reason I had trouble getting traction. What mods do you have on your Camaro?

6's in the 1/8 mi are out of the question, 7's I don't believe is capable with a 426 hp LS3 with a tune and street tires also don't believe a ZL1 with street tires can go down into 7's, my best 1/4 et was 11.92 with an 1/8 at 7.98. You need slicks to get good 60 ft times with at least 500 hp at the flywheel to get in the 1/8 mi 7's.

The conversion factor 1/8 mi to 1/4 is 1.56 or 1.6 used by NHRA, any 1/8 mi et quicker than 8.59 sec will require additional safety pieces on your Camaro.

I have 305/45R18 MT ET streets drag radials and my car makes 630+ at the wheels. I've already ran 7.59 @ 91MPH and I miss shifted in 3rd gear at Irwindale. I need lots of practice on take off because I'm getting use to my new clutch. My best 60' is 1.76 and I know I can do better. Haddad drove my car one time and did a 1.63 60' his only time diving it. I've since installed 9" rear with 3.70 gears. With practice I think I can get low 7s.
This is second best run at Irwindale.

I haven't broke lower than 11.5 in the 1/4 so I don't need a roll bar yet. I'm close but not there yet. At Irwindale all they ask for me is a helmet and fire jacket. I've ran a mid 8s with bolt ons only and wore a ball cap and seat belt. I don't think they require a helmet until under 8 seconds.
