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 :D ), dump the clutch, and hang on. :devil: 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.

Remember da up here in the great white north is around 3000 during our hot and humid summers I say aroud 12.5.Your combination is very similar to mine and I have a lot of trouble hooking with et streets go with the drags.Sure is fun rowing a stick tho ,see ya at the rock or bir .

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?

ONGRNGO
12-06-2003, 09:59 PM
Black_Z I remeber you, as for tuning I am gettin it done at Speed Inc. when I finish all my bolt ons and LS6 intake.

We need to open an LS1 specialized shop in MPLS. I wonder how it would do?

ONGRNGO
12-07-2003, 11:34 PM
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?

Steve Burger
12-08-2003, 03:40 PM
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.

ONGRNGO
12-08-2003, 05:56 PM
Black_Z I have MSN Messenger, I Hope to get to Speed INC Sometime in May to get a full tune. I got my car dynoed at HiTech Motorsports in Ramsey MN. I got it dynoed for a baseline, No tuning done,YET :devil:

I have the spohn torque arm.The x-pipe setup most guys go with will not work as they remove the g-load brace from the car to fit the exhaust in there. With the spohn tq arm you can still run duals but you will need a tandem junction xover with the pipes after the xover running the same route as the factory catback. Personally I just ordered the parts to do this and I opted to go with 3" from the headers into the xover with 2.5" out and over the rear axle into 2 spintech pro shootout mufflers. Look at the top left xover in the photo.

I was at the rock for 3 passes that was all the longer the moser 12 bolt lasted on dragradials.I then had it rebuilt and went with et streets.Lost the ring and pinion on the first pass with that set up.Repeat previous senario 2 more times until I finnally took matters in my
own hands and went thru the rear myself then ran out of summer.

ONGRNGO
12-15-2003, 06:44 PM
Hey Z-Ya I think I am going to have Speed INC build my 12 bolt not buy the direct bolt in one, that way Hopefully I won't have to worry about it. Anyway do you drive on the street? how is cruising the highway with the 4.30 gears? I want to go 4.30 but I don't know how street friendly they are?

2250 rpm at 75 mph with the 27 inch tall tires as checked by gps,so its not to bad.
I had to up the rev limit so I didn't hit it at the track in 4th .
