Ok I will bite.......

Maybe high 13's if you are lucky.

Just hit the track and you tell us as there are about 1,000 variables that will affect your time.

By the way you didn't list a driver mod :grinroll:

congrats on dropping weight..that does help..but he means driving ability when he says driver mod..everyone THINKS they are the best driver on the road..till they get on the track..everyone THINKS its just "going in a straight line"..till they get on the track..haha

if its your first time going, it can be a humbling experience lol..but everyone was a rookie at some time..just go and have fun..and dont be afraid to lift if it gets squirrely..nobody is gonna call you a puss if you back out of it and avoid smashing the car off the wall haha.

Lol good deal..you know exactly what I'm talking about then. Guys go to the track and expect to rip off a 10.50 first pass ever then they get all butthurt when the lady at the ticketbooth hands them an hourglass instead of a timeslip lol

I do know what you mean. i wasn't meaning im the best driver in the world either i was just trying to explain i have been to the track. my car ran 9.27 in the 1/8 last summer with 4.10 gears, headers, stock mufflers, and a warn out AOD all stock. my goal this summer is to hit the 8s. im hoping with the new c4 with the 2800 stall shift kit and servos along with the rest of the mods i have gotten over the winter i get there. Wish we had 1/4 here in northern Ontario.

Yeah 8's in the 1/8 should net your 13's you are looking for.

Just a little ribbing glad you took it like a good sport.

You could certainly use some suspension mods since you're running a decently stalled C4 with 4.10s. Of course I'll recommend UPR Products. I'd say the car is capable of 7s/12s as it sits.

When you ran your 9.27....what tires were you rocking? And what were your 60 fts?
