Awsome....I can't wait to see more times hitting this thread over the comming months!

Question: I'd like to know if most here are running with T/C on or off? From what I've seen, most are leaving it on, but just asking!

I wish we had a 1/4 mile track around here, best I can do is 1/8th mile. I will try and beat all this numbers though, lol.


Maybe take a trip to St. Louis and GAteway International Raceway. Hmmmm.

It was suggested - and I agree - that we should include transmission in the listings. I know that both scrming and beauwulf have automatics, but I can't remember for the life of me which transmission 67 has.

I've also updated the post template to reflect the extra information.

No problem. It helps pass the time until I can start putting some numbers of my own on these lists.

Not that I have my car yet, but the closest drag strip to me is about 3hrs away. And even then you can only go on certain nights none of which I will likely be able to get to. You are all lucky to have them nearby. I have never been to a strip, or owned a car that would be good on a drag strip....so I hope to get to one at least once when I get my camaro but who knows.

Anyway keep the times coming.

Yee-ha.

Bone stock LS
Manual six
255/55 Goodyear Touring (nicely treaded)
53 yr old driver, and newbie to the strip (see reaction time)
and those swell 18" steelies (aka "boat anchors")

This was the last pass of two.

I'm assuming yours is the pass on the left?
