I'm not disappointed(other than my reaction time) I'm not impressed. Just kinda wished I would have broke into the 13's. Ran 4 times. The place was PACKED. I was there from 7:45 to just a little past 10. My best time was 14.298..now don't hate! The car has a lot more in it(and so does the driver) The tires didn't spin at all. Gosh Darn Torque Management! A tune and maybe headers with a C/B is in the near future. This was with a full tank of gas, spare tire and some junk in the trunk.

I don't feel like scanning the slip, but it looks like this

R/T .485
60' 2.201
330 6.194
1/8 9.304
MPH 79.18
1/4 14.298
MPH 98.94

That was the 1st run I did and came out to be my best. I'm sure I would have dipped into the 13's if I would have gotten to run more.

Here's the Clip

I also met and got beat by the former owner of Arizona Sound Performance. His name was Todd if I remember. He was driving an 06 Trail Blazer SS. When we ran he came out with a 14.028 @ 98.41. Pretty kool guy. Gave me a couple ideas for the goat.

Hi,
where did you race? I'd like to meet a few GTOs at a track in Chicago to 'compare notes'...

For now my car is stock, but it feels strong. Would like to see what it does.

Hey nix, I'll be down at GLD this wednesday if the weather holds up. You'd be in the mid 13's if the launch was better. Looks like you had fun. Maybe we can meet up on Wed.

.2 better 60 ft would have made for .4 improvement in ET by the time you cross the finish line. Learn to launch better and you'll be in the 13's. Many out there are cuttin 2.0 60fts on stock tires. Keep practicing!

I don't get it. I got maybe 1/2 a tire rotarion of wheel spin off the line. Brake all the way down with the rpms @ 1300. Light turns green i mashed the gas to the floor.

mashing the gas to the floor is probably the worst way to get off the line with the TM in these cars. I spin more than twice as far on half throttle than full throttle. Learn to work your way down the pedal instead of jabbing it and your 60's will definitely get better.
