I recently installed my GMM shifter and went out this afternoon to make some 1/4 mile runs with the G-tech pro. Made 3 passes with the best being 13.25 sec at 109 mph (4.9 sec 0-60mph). That was with a lot of tire spin in first and some in second gear. Second best run was with zero tire spin in first (13.56 sec at 107 mph, 5.1 sec 0-60mph). I had no trouble shifting gears with the GMM like I did with my stock shifter. The G-tech is very consistent and I think is pretty accurate also.

I want to make some base-line runs on a track before I install my maggie. I think I could get better times at a track than on the street due to traction, but I have never raced on a track before. Anyone know of any local events coming up in the next week or two? If so, is anyone going? Thanks.

Thanks, those are all good options. Saturday in Lodi might work well for me. As a newbie to drag racing, what do I need to bring (besides my car :drink: )? I guess I will need a helmet right? Sacramento or Infineon also would be good, but I'm coaching a soccer team and we practice on Weds nights.

If you run faster than 14 seconds you'll need a helmet.

Boy, I missed another one. My kids had soccer all morning again and since I'm the coach I can't miss the games. I hope you all had fun and hopefully I'll get out to meet some of you soon.

I'm glad I drug my but out there today. Had a good time trying to watch drag racers street race. Traction was a slight issue all the way down the track, from what I was watching. One slingshot dragster hit the wall down towards the end of the track, no one hurt. Good nastogia feel to it, though.

Sunday's usually don't have the 1/4 mile tracks open. Wed night will be open at Sac and Infineon, where I think quite a few goats are going. Even though you will be from out of town, watch out for the smog nazis as you leave Sac Raceway.
Good luck and I hope to see some numbers from you regardless of where your racing at. :)

Well i was very impressed with the turnout. I believe i met Red Alert?? Craig was that you? also saw a young lady in a black GTO on my way in and another cat on the return road.. forgot his name. My wife got some video..me laying rest to a yute in a mustang, me being schooled by Red Alert, and Red Alert taking out a late model Saleen..said supercharged on it...whoopie. What a good time i had today.:patriot:
BTW, if i could ever figure out how to post pics and videos id die a happy man. sorry :drink: :nuts:
