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.

Hey now, I ran an unofficial 14.22 @ 102 on my DashHawk, lol. If it's anywhere near accurate, I'm knocking on the door! Now, I gotta wait for a track to open, and of course, the LT, hiflo and tune is coming next week!

I just need a damn track, lol!

FYI-You modded guys (or gals) are running almost the numbers my stock '93 Z28 did. It ran about 8.70's in the 1/8th and 13.85's in the 1/4 bone stock. Nice job with those 305 horses!!!

Atco raceway is supposed to be open for test and tune this sunday, $20 bucks a car. Don't think it will happen, we still have a foot of snow on the ground. If it is open, I just may be there.

Nicely done and welcome to the club. Like me, we need to get those 60' times down. I'm working on it.

Okay, still not official, but this morning at 4am, at the airport, did a 14.04 @ 104.xx. 60ft was a 2.51, so wheelspin was an issue. This was with no tune, as I had unflashed it to check something out. I will try in the morning with the tune and see what happens! Maybe it won't be official, but I might get into the 13's!!

This is on my DashHawk, which might be causing some CAN issues in the car. March 14, the car will see track time, weather permitting!!

Solve your 60 ft issues, and your car is easily into the 13's

Just noticed this thread, here is my best run from December (bone stock)..

2LT/RS 20' wheels, Automatic

R/T: .179
60': 2.278
330: 6.320
1/8: 9.616
MPH: 75.34
1000: 12.464
1/4: 14.860
MPH: 93.29
Name of the track: Houston Raceway Park
Date of pass: 12/18/09





Ok so this was my first time ever at a track, so obviously there is room to improve. I did three other runs, but the above was my best 1/4 time. I left TC on and had it in drive and not sport, if that makes any difference. Any suggestions to get my 60' better? scrming you said you keep TC on but flash the converter, what do you mean by flash the converter? Also, what RPM's are yall launching at? I've just been going from 0 and flooring it lol.
