On my way to the track my clutch pedal stuck to the floor and I couldn't drive my car any further. Had to get it towed. Now I have to figure out what's wrong with this shit lol.

Sucks!
I should be there next thursday.

alright so just got back from my first trip out and here are my time...

1.) 8.9 - i knew my launch was way to weak
2.) 9.0 - damn tried to make up for my first weak launch and i ended up spinning the tires
3.) 8.7 - Finally got a decent launch and defiantly felt the potential

Over all i had a great time and gained some great experience and saw a few nice fbodys. Even saw the new ss maro and got greatly disappointed as he got his ass kicked by an 07-08 GT....for shame!

Not the times I wanted, but I see some potential...

Best run was a 8.638 @ 87.20 w/ a 2.146 60' time. :(
Seemed like I was the only one there on street tires, I spun a lot.
<benchracing> I think the car has a 8.3xx in it. I just have to get some sticky tires and try to cut .3-.4 seconds off of my 60' time.<\benchracing>

87mph is pretty high. That should be good for some low 8s if you can get traction. :D

LS1Adam84

Yeah 87 you should be like 8.0, 8.1, SRJ you and I would be pretty close.

Nice. Now I just need to hook...

And I swear I was in the left lane at Irwindale twice and I couldn't leave the clutch in and the foot off the brake like I wanted too. Seemed like there was just enough of a grade to let my car slowly creep forward.

Get some sticky icky tires, like et streets, that should be good, I have been lucky, i did about 7 or 8 hard passes with my rear on some et streets at 12 psi. I am as abusive if not worse than a m6 auto with no torque management on at all with a 3k stall converter and hard shifts.

But yeah tire on your car and me on tire again would be even, as it sits right now on street tires I can get the throttle just right and make an 8.1x pass running with et streets makes it easier hahaha.

You're lucky it doesn't take skill to run good times with a stalled auto.

my car does that as well, its really hard to make it sit still but it can be done... i try to get there before the other car, try that and right when he is next to you let go of the brake
