I don't think X has been on the site for quite some time. I don't think anyone but him can update the list.

The other V6 site has your updates. Just post those slips here and Baylor can add them to the list.

damn! I could have seen gretchen runs! You have to let me know next time you go to run the car in Bradenton.



Also that 13.4 run by 67 GTO is strong. Very nice!

I got to do something to my car besides washing the dust off of it every 2 weeks, haha...

It was my first time drag racing at a track. I've spectated before, but never run before. I've done drag racing on the street, but this is way different and I like it better. I may street race A LOT less now.

I ran 5 or 6 times. I had two bad runs. One was due to the guy starting the light before we were both lined up correctly. The other was my fault, had both traction and stability off. When I launched my car, it didn't hook at all. It just stayed there burning rubber. It got up to 80 MPH, lol. I felt stupid for that.

Majority of my runs were in Sport mode with traction off. I tried one run with traction on and it wasn't too bad. I wish I would've written down what run was what, but I didn't sorry. My three best time slips are below. My mods are trifecta tune, rx catch can, and rx breather. I use only 93 octane gas from shell and mobil 1 synthetic oil. Temperature was between 50 and 60 degrees Fahrenheit. I had stock RS 20" P-Zeros running 34/35 psi cold and 37/38 psi hot, which may need to be swapped out now around 15k miles I am at about 10.7k miles currently on them and the rears are showing wear since my car is a DD in all weather and conditions. I am thinking about Nitto Invo's as my next set of tires. I will replace all of them though when I go to get new tires.

I am in the left lane in each of the slips.

That 14.2 with a 2.0 60' is a good run. Looks like that Trifecta tune is a serious upgrade for any LLT

Thanks, it was my first time racing at a track. Definitely hope to do better this Saturday. I wonder if I can get 14.0 with just Trifecta tune. I was trying to get closer to it, but never did. I do wonder if perhaps having stuff in the trunk was part of the issue. This Saturday when I go I am stripping a lot of stuff out to try to get closer to 14 but I can't be faster than 13.9 or they will make me get a helmet which I don't currently have. Perhaps I can borrow one from someone there if that ever happens.

Be sure to get put on the "stock" run list. It's on the 1st page. What RPM did you leave at? If you've never run before i'm totally impressed. I've been racing since the '70's. You got skills. Congrats !!!

I am not completely stock. I do have the Trifecta tune along with RX Catch Can and Breather, but nothing else yet. Majority of my runs I left at idle or 1000RPM. Yea, it was my first time racing at the track. Thanks man! I wasn't sure how well I ran in comparison to others. I hope to improve this Saturday when I go again.

Great run, congrats! nice 60ft. If it was 10 degrees cooler, I bet you would be a tenth faster.

Maybe they rent helmet's at the track?

Best of luck on your next runs.

Thanks man! I never understood what's a good 60ft and a bad 60ft, but a lot of you keep saying it's good so I'll take it The temp out was between 50 and 60 Fahrenheit. I can't imagine much better weather, lol.

They don't rent helmets sadly because I asked.

Thanks man! I won't make it out to the track until next week Thursday after work. It's open from 6pm to 10pm and maybe I'll get better runs. I'll for sure post my slips if I get anything good.

For our V6 stock or modified, anything around 2.0 or faster is a GREAT 60' time. Anything slower than that is starting down the path of not so good.

Theory factor says for every 0.1 you can shave in 60' is worth 0.2 at the big end.

Go back thru the pages and look at time slips and you will get a good reference set for time slips.

I'm taking mines to get a dyno soon and then to the track to get baseline times. I never actually dragged on a real track before so it should be an adventure to say the least
