Thanks ROD! Yeah I am pleased, though, I come to find out the track actually raises 10' in elevation from 1/8mi to 1/4mi section through that angle. So I bet cha I would have been more like 14.0x something if it was a straight flat 1/4mi. I think once I open up the exhaust to 2.5" pipe it will be better also!

Could be. Although I've never run while they are actually racing, so I don;t know if the track prep is different. I know on T and T days, the track goes away quick, and those 9.12s become 9.3s, with 60ft times going up those 2 tenths as well. The car will kick sideways late in the day, lol.


Thinking of Sikeston, or Gateway. Which is where I need to go anyway, run the full 1/4 mile.


It's all good Xanthos!!

Using 6:10 pm as the time you raced (closest to your 6:17 pm) on drag times you had a DA of 1595.

That translates to:
  • Stock and Mildly Modified Naturally Aspirated Engines -14.046 @ 98.757 MPH
  • Extensively Modified Naturally Aspirated Engines - 14.161 @ 98.051 MPH
So your corrected time (depending on which category of tune you fall into) is about 14.1@98mph.

Question .. heading to the track for the 1st time tomorrow (1/8 mile ) and wanted to see what people were doing . do you turn off the traction control ? what RPM have you had the best launch at and of coarse use the paddle shifter.I'm using stock ( 20's) wheels and tires on the car here with just a InJen cai . any help would be great.

Leave it in Sport Mode and don't use the paddle shifters. The track near me has poor traction with street tires. Look at your 60' time and compare it to the others on here. The higher your number, the more tire spin you are getting.

My first time!

I went racing last night for the first time and all I can say is I am SO hooked! Now, I'm trying to figure out what I need to do and what I can put on my car to make better time! I'm not up there with any of you guys, but I still wanted to post my results. (Sorry for the bad pics, the printouts were really faded.)

I went with a bunch of Supercharged V8 guys and learned a few things. I was the only V6 Camaro out there and 1 of only 2 females racing. The guy racing next to me wasn't very happy that he was beaten by a girl

Can't wait to do it again!
