Any Las Vegas 1/4 mile times????

I have a 2SS stock my best time was 13.5 and trap speed of 104.7 with sh*ty track cond. Midnight Mayhem " I need some excuse"
With CAM CAI Headers and exhaust I did 13.1 trap speed 110.4 Not just an excuse but there is no tracion at Midnight Mayhem if anyone else has been there theyll tell you the same thing. On Nov 13th theres another Midnight Mayhem if anyone is interested. I plan to do 12.7 If I dont f*ck up!! Hope to see you there

What are your 60' times like, are you on DRs or stock tires and stick or auto?

Its a 6 speed my 60' average is 2.3 it sucks theres no traction thats all on stock tires. I cant put smaller then a 20" rim so DR's are like 375 a piece and that sucks for 800 i might as well through a bottle on it!!! Any sugestions

I take it you mean a stick since the auto is a 6 speed as well. If you're just on stockers you might as well not even go to MM if you want a decent run. TNT is your best bet, at least the track is prepped and you get more than 2 or 3 runs in. If you throw a bottle in it instead of getting DRs you'll be in even worse shape so save you pennies for some good rubber. 2.3 actually isnt bad for what you have, it just sucks there is no track prep so you're either bogging off the line so you dont spin or spinning like friggin crazy!

Just a tip Stealth Camaro, edit out the s**t and f**k words in your post
before the mods ban you from Camaro5.com

Also, go to this thread: http://rangeracceleration.com/Launch_Tips.html
it will give you some good tips for launching with street tires.

My best at LVMS is 13.28 @ 109mph with headers 3" exhaust Intake and Tune, traction seems to be a big issue there and staging is lightning fast so its hard to get set up there but they are just trying to get as many people runs as possible I guess.
