Ok... I went to the track for the VERY FIRST TIME last night... Yes, I finally convinced the Mrs. to let me go... I told her you guys were putting so much pressure on me I just had to go! LOL! Ok... so I told her I was not going to drive.. that was part of the deal... So I went to the track with Lidio and let him drive the car... Now that she see nothing happened I'll work on getting behind the wheel myself! LOL!

So now for some numbers....

60' = 2.146
1/8 = 9.525
1/8 MPH = 73.26
1/4 = 14.922
1/4 MPH = 90.43

We were pretty happy with the car's performance! Not bad for it's first time out... it was a Test & Tune night so lots of difference cars out there... I was watching some of the other car's run.. I was faster than a lot of the older stock v8 cars.. Acutally on this run Lidio was along side of a late model Z28... My car actually stay quite close... he finished with a 14.462...

So all in all a good night...

've uploaded some videos from last night. They are about 1.2MB.

Notice the Late Model Z28 that my car is up against... Gave him a run for his money! LOL!

Here's my car: scrming

And Lidio's GT: Lidio

Wow impressive. I was wondering what those 06s would do. I was thinking 15 flat so i was close. Some gears and exhaust and u will have a mid 14 second car there. Maybe a tune, some pulleys and some really really good driving u might hit a 13.9!

Thanks...

Guess I need to make up a new sig with my mods... Car and Driver has the car's 1/4 listed as 15.3.

I've already got CAI,muffler, Tune, 4.10s and T-Lok... I do also have oversized tires.. (28.5 OD vs stock 27 inch).... so 14.9s are going to be where I'm at for now... until we go with some type of forced induction this winter... LOL!

Lidio is DA MAN! LOL! You can check his shop at www.alternativeauto.com

His GT has a Vortech S/C, new Torque convertor and I think he changed out the rear gears... Not sure what else... but I think that's it...

I bet so since u are modded. A stock 96-98 GT 5 speed should hit 14.9 but autos like mine run like 15.3. I am a tad bit faster then ya tho;) I should do better next month when its alot cooler.

yeah... i'm thinking i'm going to have to go back in September on a nice cool night... LOL! I was also running an 89 octane tune... I've got a 93 octane tune but haven't been running it since the gas prices went up so much... Wonder if the 93 tune would make any difference in the 1/4????

Well if u got a 93 octane tune then they bumped your timing up which resorts in more horses. My tune is also a 93 altho i can switch back to a 87 tune but since i dont drive it daily i leave it on 93. U should hit a 14.8 or high 14.7 when u go back in the cooler air. Do you know the altitude of the track u run at?
