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.

Actually there, they require a helmet for anything under 8.5

I went back and looked at some of my vids. I wasn't under 8.5 seconds. I know I was in the 8s.

It's a quick rush of adrenalin the first time. Then it slowly fads away. LOL.

it is really nice to see what your car can do, like inferno said the adrenaline fades. doesnt compare to a road course in that aspect. i want to go to see the numbers that my mild build can do, and show off CMS's work.

I was planning on going this thursday, but I want to wait to install some more goodies that are on order. So instead I decided to take a trip to Adams Motorsports Park and ran my car there for the first time. Turned out they were having a Chevy Vs. Ford shootout and I was the only Chevy that showed haha
