117.17 was my trap in the 1/4 tonight.
I usually cut 1.8x 60's, but could not muster better than a 2.0 tonight :(
Anyhow, it's an M6 with 4.10's in the 10 bolt.

Would like to know what kind of ET I can aspire to with that mph.

Appreciate it. :usa:

:( 12.4 on a 2.077 60'

My best has been 12.19 @ 115.72 on a 1.83

I launch and shift like an old lady! :bang:

all depends on your weight and shifting points. i have run 116.8 (not locked up) and ran 11.59 @ 3590 lbs.

Full weight SS T-tops, leather seats.
My shiftpoints should be within 6600-6800, but my shiftlight broke last night and I was shifting all over the place (anywhere between 6000 to the 6900 rev limiter- bounced a few times- not good). My stock tach is useless.
Overall, a very sloppy night for me.

I'd say it's good for proving that your shifting needs some work! :D

Just messing with you! Your car sounds awesome.....very mean sounding! :hail:

My last run I hit a 13.2 @ 105 with a 2.06 60'. I'm very pleased...especially with a stock 2000 convertible (lid and BGRA).

I used to run a 12.2 @ 117mph on a 2.0 60' in my LS1 on a 100 shot. Raceweight was 3,650lbs. Your mph for your power level is right on par. An 11.7 would be a good ET IMO for that mph given a moderate 60'. I know you're not out to cut any 1.5-1.6's so a nice 1.75 60' on drag radials would put you in the 11.7 second range. Powershifting will drop some ET and pick up some mph. I know you're a granny shifter though. ;)

Hell, that is an awesome trap 02SS! Easy high elevens would have been yours last night with a 1.8 60ft or better. I think that is great with the 10 bolt still working. It is better to drive it home than bum a ride huh!

I have redefiined the term "granny shifting" by adding one more generation.
I "great-granny shift" .... :jest: Literally, with shoes slipping off on each shift! Gotta get me some shoes! (or at least use shoe laces..) :D

weight has nothing to do with it.117 mph is a reflection of weight and power.
mid to high 11's with a good 60'.

If you're shifting is that bad, you can count on another 2-3 MPH just out of a better driver...

Shifting is everything for MPH. The faster your shifts, the higher the RPM range stays IE: stays in the power range...

FWIW I have driven friends' car's as much as 3-4 mph faster just by shifting alone...

Unit, what is your best time in the Cobra?I'll let you know in the spring. It wouldn't be an accurate description of the car due to all the new mods. Put it this way, I could eat some taco bell while driving it to a mid 11.

i ran 12.2's last night with a horible 1.8 60' on 11.5 streets at 114 mph :eek2: thats what happens with crappy track conditions. should have been 11.9x with a 1.6x 60'. you know the track conditions suck when you rip into 3rd any the rear breaks loose with et streets in a high 11's car. :cry:
