We are going to get there Wednesday night, I want a chance to the track to do some T&T on Thursday, & will go to all the parties. Did some work to the car today, was going to get some times @ the track, but it was closed due to weather. I'll have to wait until next wed to get it to the track.

I've been running my car hard. I had my first dyno and made 12 passes when the car had 850 miles on it (second week I had it with 1 week being gone at the body shop). Been waiting for good air to go get a few more baselines before the first round of mods.

I also am awaiting another open track day as I missed the last sadly. I will be running the car hard on both drag strip and road course to see what this car can do. Dyno-queen it is not! Attempting to get good weather to move up the list of "fastest stock times." I'll have the benefit of nice air but already have a good time considering the conditions. May try your hard launches you mentioned in another thread!

I really want to take mine to the track, ive never had a car i could before, now i do, and ive never been on a track, so Im kinda nervous. I was told one time that if u cant afford to fix your car when u race it, to dont race it, so not sure what to do, i guess i should just go do it.

Better weather? Our highs are in the 40s and 50s right now.

I promise I'll do my share or racing and will post vids in the future. I just got my car a few weeks back and she's still stock. Check out my YouTube page from my previous car (charger srt8)...

It is the driver. I have been to the local dragstrip twice. The first time I did 16 seconds in 1/4 mile. Pretty embarrassing especially since I left the windows down, traction control and air conditioning on. It was my first time. I went back on a test and tune night and made four passes. My best pass was 14.2. I am working on my reaction time. So far my best was .048. I was told on this track that .500 is the best. I need a lot more practice. U have no mods except catback exhaust and hopefully one day the shorty headers and airbox will come in through GMPP.
