There should be some high 12s in there for you. I would think so.

Track was 6000 da...my 60 was slow at 2.062 and 660 in 8.7. Just seemed off. Seemed a lot slower compared to some stock 5.0s with only tires cutting 12.9s

holey DA batman!!!! that plus the 60ft.

Probably with a 1.8x 60ft you would have seen a 12 sec slip. But with the DA that high you can't be too upset.

Just for comparisons sake, my car with headers, a cai, and Teds tune ran 12.4 @ 113, 1.89 60 in zero da.

I didn't have the gears which will hurt your traction.

At 6000 DA that's not that bad actually. Where are you racing at?

What is the altitude of that track. I couldn't find it in Dragtimes?
Most tracks in Tx aren't that high of an altitude. Are you sure your DA was 6000?

I didn't check the weather for yesterday but its a high of 99 tomorrow. With an elevation of 3000 feet it won't take much to see a da if 6k.

Yea, I wouldn't be too disappointed with that. The DA is killing you, your 60' isn't bad for being your first time out either. Just keep working on it.

Wow that is up there. Then yes 6000 sounds dead on. Man I'd be happy with that time. Take a drive this fall to Ennis and you will do much better.
