I'd love to post your time but you've got to post an actual picture or scan of the timeslip or its not official. :(

Sorry to be a bit harsh, but those are the rules.

Well, one thing to bear in mind is that the LS and 1LT (the only M6 cars run so far) have the really-terrible-for-traction BFGs. Not great for 60' times, which makes a huge impact on 1/4 mile times.

Plus, I don't think either of those people are professional drivers.

I also have the BFG 18" tires, but weren't the 21 inchers optional?

I know even with only 600 miles on my car, I can break the tires loose in 3rd gear every time.

Still, I'd hope that I could get a 14.5 out of my car. Maybe in time, we'll see more v6's in the mid-low 14's ...

I'm at the track as we speak, waitin for them to open up! This will be my first time with this car, but not my first race. Mine is currently stock, but should have bolt ons next week.

You also have to include the location. The tests were probably close to sealevel and corrected times, whereas the others might be at a higher elevation, hotter temps, and of course drivers.

Hey HD, nice meeting you last week. According to dragtimes.com DA was 1842 above sea when you made the run. A bit high for Atco, the lower the better.
http://www.dragtimes.com/da-density-...time=8:54%20PM

Flashing means just stomping from idle from what I can see.

First time I used the all season rubber that came with the car. I've since switched to Goodyear summer tires when at Atco that grip better.

Hope to see you again at Atco.


Dan

Thanks 67 GTO for the link I saved to my favs.
I used the calculator and it adjusted the time to 14.294 @ 98.21.
If I use a set of track tires should I go with 18” instead of 20”
I will try to go back Tuesday night.if the whether is better let me know if you want to go. Also what is a good DA now that you gave me the link.

Well my best runs were when the DA was -600 and -1300, rare air for sure that you'll most likley see in the fall and early spring.

My lighter/shorter 19" aftermarket setup may give me a little boost. They weigh about 44lbs less (total) than the stock 20" RS wheels/tires.

Everyone says that the Camaro is too heavy so I'll lighten it up as much I can.

A diet for the driver may be in order too boot!

P/M/C,

If you were racing at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, here's the Density Altitude Correction factor for your run:

Las Vegas Motor Speedway
6/5/10 12:56 pm


Track Elevation: 2028 feet above sea level
Air Temperature: 100 degrees F
Barometric Pressure: 29.77 inches Hg
Relative Humidity: 15 %

CORRECTED
Density Altitude: 5334 feet above sea level
1/4 mile ET: 15.2 seconds = 14.19 seconds (corrected)

Nice!

Looks like you ran a corrected for sea level 14.2 sec 1/4 mile.

What was your trap speed and 60 ft time?

Uploaded. I also cropped/resized it and brightened it up a bit to make it more readable.

Remind me - are you submitting for the bone stock category or one of the others?

P.S. - nevermind, found it. Bone Stock LS A6.

Well then, you pulled an amazing 1/4 mile time with just a 2.357.

Do you have your trap speed? I can do a "corrected" on that was well.

And seeing how every 1/10 off your 60 ft is roughly 2/10 off your 1/4 time, if you managed a 2.2 you could have easily run a corrected time of 14.0 or better!

Any mods? CAI? Wheels? Tires? Exhaust?
