But you are leading with a short fuse and to quick to reply with smart comments. I took Tim post earlier to be humor and light?
As far as your direct comment to me, You can file this whole post on the useless information file Bc until you actually do anything with the car, it's all useless. Just alot of blank entries that mean nothing. I personally don't see you hitting those numbers on the dyno?

Your racing experience will determine mostly what you run and your mods will play much less in the equation. Hence why you often see full bolt on + cam cars running mid 12's. So high 12's is a below average time to predict. But more probable based on ur experience.

Be sure to come back and post a time slip so everyone who guessed will know how they did?
once again

i understand but he got mad because i said "it was just for fun " who gets mad over something that simple? i wasnt being nasty of disrespectful. i dont need his knowledge if hes going to act like that i have plenty of real life friends who probably know more about racing/fast cars then 90% of the people on this forum. i made this thread for fun but some people think to much into any given subject. some of the members of this forum take this shit wayyyyy to seriously. oh well no big deal.

Understandable i guess, but jt knows what these cars run/dyno/do I took his advise on stuff and my car runs good for a bolt on car and aiming for 11.80s this coming weekend and with his help. But only one way to find out is run it bud then you'll know.

We all know folks who have gone quick with other cars. But if you want advice on here, maybe ease up a little.

Why not run it before to see what kind of improvement you get.

Again, I'm not mad. I don't think Tim was mad either. You just took it that he was mad Bc of a smiley face palm? Lol. So who is jumping to conclusions? If I was mad you would know it.

So enough about that. Being that you created this account for fun and you asked a fun question, ill participate. My prediction is 12.80-13.00.

i wish i could but i unfortunately live in a state where most of the tracks were torn down before i was even born so the closets track to me is in NJ which is a 3 hour drive so i have to make a whole day out of the event and i cant just run it real quick just for shits and giggles.
