Cool 6spd drag racers inside please

Hey guys I have a question on what my times will be next year, you probobly get this a lot but I have to ask because it is bothering me. As you can see in my Sig with a lid and loudmouth I went 13.15 at 107.9 with a 2.2 60ft. This winter I am adding a Moser 12bolt with 4.11 gears, Spec stage 3 clutch, QA1 front and rear shocks, ADJ T/A, LCA with relocation brackets, SFC, Jet-Hot LT'S with X-PIPE, asp Pulley, ported throttle body, LS6 Intake, and Convo Pros in the rear with 27x10.5x15 ET Streets, and convo pros up front with skinnies.

With me Driving good what Kind of 60ft and 1/4 mile time will I be looking at?

Sorry for the long post, I am an excited 21 year old that has to wait all winter to go racing Damn Minnesota!!!!!!!!!!

Consider upgrading the driveshaft, and getting a torque arm that doesn't mount to the tranny. Also, consider ET Drags instead of ET Streets.

Then push in the clutch, floor the gas (rev limiter is there for a reason, ya know ), dump the clutch, and hang on. Hal's on 2.

I also think it's up to you, as a driver how fast you will go. May take some practice to figure out how to do it. This year I dropped .8 seconds off my ET just by practicing (didn't do any mods this year).

I'd also skip the ET streets and just go with the ET drags, no since of messing around.

With all those extra mods, powershifting and a 1.5 sixty I think you have the potential for 11.9 in good weather!

Good luck!

Chris you took the words right out of my mouth. Learn how to launch and shift as best as you can and it better run 11.9 or better.

Thanks for all the input guys!!! So what Size ET Drag would you get with my set up? I have 15x7.5" convo pros for wheels, so what size Tire? Also what torque arm to go with the 12bolt and the X-pipe, will the spohn work, the one with that mounts on the crossmember, and has a D/S LOOP?

Hey Z-Ya where you out at the rock a lot last year? I just got my car this past sept. But my buddy had his Black 2000 Z28 out there a few times, his best run was 12.50 at 113 you prob. wont remember. But I will be out a lot next year, BIR, Rockfalls, And cederfalls.

get 26 x 10.5 slicks.. for yuor combo. The 27" tires will be a little to tall.

12.5 -12.3 would be my prediction

But like Z-ya says, up here the DA sucks (3000', more like 5000' in July/August). Any than most of these track (what few we have), can't prep if their life depended on it.

Up North yea, 12.4-12.6

Any place else, 11.9-12.1

I would actually go with 26x8.5 for those rims. I have the same setup and went 1.50 in the sixty. The 26x10 will cup on those rims and actually give you less contact patch.

Best of luck!

ONGRNGO, I met you at the rock this fall, at the last race of the year. I was the one that sat in your car to see if I liked the feel of the pro 5.0. I hope to get my car over to the rock, or cedar falls. Where do you get your tuning done?

Yes, we really need a shop that specializes in working on LS1 that is reasonably priced. We have DRM and but they charge way to much to do anything. We need a shop like our sponsors on this website in minnesota, I know they would get a lot of buisness. I have done some buisness with Speed INC. the past few days getting my clutch and a few other things and have ordered from them before and they have great service, great prices, and helpfull people that can answer my questions weather it is by email or the phone, that is the kind of shop we need in MN.

Exactly. Do you have MSN messenger or AIM? Maybe we could make a trip over to speed inc this summer when your mods are completed. Where did you dyno at?

I have a very similar setup to yours. I have run a best of 12.21 @114.5 with grood weather and good track prep and a 1.61 60'. In the mid summer months times slip to ~12.4 at 111 - 113. I am still sorting out the QA1 settings.
