Just got back from the track...

here are the results:

Run 1:
2.1907 60ft
13.4306 @107.15

Run 2:
2.0559 60ft
13.25 @108.70

Run 3:
2.0197 60ft
13.0972 @108.25

Run 4:
1.9691 60ft
12.98 @109.03

Run 5:
2.0678 60ft
13.12 @107.74

I was hoping to get a hair better on the last run but due to an accident the sun went down and the track cooled off. Next time I'll be looking for the 12.8-12.7.

Those are great times for street tires. I think my car is making about the same power, just didn't get a good launch. What were your 1/8 mile times? Mine were 8.9s/9.0s .

I'm taking 275/50/15 drag radials to the track next time. I have an arrogant chevy guy that is putting slicks and a 300hp nos kit on his car to beat me since I thumped him last time so I want to even things up a little with the DR's . ( like that's still fair )

The track I went to was Capitol Raceway in Maryland and the printouts gave the 1/8th time but no MPH so I'll give the times.

in order this was the 1/8 times..
8.7917
8.6219
8.5062
8.4267
8.5397
They are the same order as above. hope this helps.

Thanks for the info.

I'm losing 5 to 6 tenths in the 1/8 due to no traction. My 60fts don't reflect all of my traction problems since it spins on past the 60ft . I will try some wider 18s and slip/burn the clutch next time I run with street tires.

I need to go to this track

How in the world did you pull a 1.9 without any wheel hop?

Was it just hookin good? I've tried the 3500 and slip the clutch with no luck, but perhaps my right foot likes the floor to much!

Awesome!
