Got back from the track

And lets just say I am pretty disappointed to the performance of my L99, though it may be due to not hooking up at all the first 60 feet.

Best time (had 8 runs): Reaction Time: .020 1/4 Miles: 13.731
Average time on everything was 13.93 out of the 8 runs.

Maybe if I can hook up I can get down in the low 13s as promised.

Check this site and post up your DA... Your run sounds about like the 14 sec runs we are having down here in the heat of TX

Post up your 60' times...reaction times don't matter. Every 0.1 second reduction in 60' time is usually worth 0.2 second reduction in 1/4 mile time (on average).

Yeah, give us some more information. What were the conditions like (Density Altitude)?
What was your 60' time, trap speed?
Your 13.7 could very well be a low 13 sec run when corrected for DA.
Don't forget your running your car in the summer. 13.7 in the summer is actually a pretty decent time.

Haven't heard that from the L99 A6 guys. I've been reading some of that coming from the LS3 M6 guys. The M6 (drop clutch) launch is most likely the cause.
But it sounds like a weak link that will need to be looked at.

so your dissapointed in the performance, say it 60' was crap and then don't post the 60' time??? wow

besides the fact that if it did 60' like ass and you raced in heat/humidity, 13.7 is pretty good and what it should run.

13.39 @ 105 mph (corrected for Altitude). So you did pretty good.

Yeah, you can drop another 2-3 tenths in the quarter with a better 60 foot.

I think I saw you run at Sealy a few weeks ago. There where a couple new camaros running around 14.0's all night. It was hot as balls out and my car was running slower as well. I'm not going back till Octoberish its way too hot.
