First trip to the track in my new car

2013 GT/CS 6speed 3.31 13 days old on stock tires 1/8 mile

First run - 9.34 83mph
Second run - 8.98 83mph
Third run - 8.97 83mph
Fourth run - 8.71 85mph
Fifth run - 8.70 86mph

All 60' times over 2.2

Definitely room for improvement

First of all improving the 1/8 time by .6 seconds first time out is a great job congrats. Conquering our 6 speed is no small task.. my suggestion is suspension and tires. You can go UPR pro series and some 15x8 drag radials and spend $1800 and probably turn that 60 into a 1.7-1.8 with practice. Good Luck

It has 1500 miles on it, how much more breaking in do they need? If breaking in a motor was still a real issue they would have instructions in the manual, they don't. I bought it to enjoy and that's what I'm doing!

I think 8.5 e/t is obtainable the way it sits. My father has a set of DR 17's I'm planning on stealing, just need to find rims.

Thanks for the info!

I dont think he was being rude to you I think he was joking. Also I have to agree that breaking in is a joke nowadays. My buddy asked the tuner that installed my supercharger when I can really get on it.... Tuner laughed and said he did 175mph on the dyno lol. Enjoy the car just remember you dont have to race every jerkoff on the streets people will try always tempt you. Stay safe and have fun

No I wasn't, I thought it was funny... I just saw 13 days old. Man you drove a lot in those 13 days. Not that I blame you, it's fun to drive. I find an excuse to take everywhere.
