Well my track rental at Atco yesterday really paid off. Car went a best of 12.93 @ 106.4 on a 1.9 60ft. Not too shabby for just a few bolt ons and a 141k mile motor. The car had more in it but I wanted to drive it home, so I took it easy on the ol 10 bolt. Im sure the 141k rockers/springs are holding me back, so those will get changed soon. I didnt get a slip of the 12.93 because it was the last run and they didnt print my ticket. I do have a go pro vid of it that Im waiting for my friend to upload. I do have a 12.94 slip and a 12.98 video of a grudge race between me and an ls2 01z. Let me know what you think guys think...

DA was around -400 during that pass. Was a very humid day. Wish it was around -1000 like it should have been...

Launching? I was dumping it at 4-5k. On the last run I dumped it at 5k but the clutch was a little hot and it slipped slightly (you can here it in the go pro vid). I was on shot toyo proxes tq drag radials...

That's what I heard then. I couldn't tell if you were holding it at 1/2 throttle after dumping it or what. Awesome vids.

Good runs! A 106 trap should get you 12.6's on a perfect run. Keep at it.

No such thing as a perfect run with the m6/10 bolt combo. Lol. We will see how she reacts to a 150 shot pretty soon...

I'm really curious to see that run. I'd like to get in the 12's at the tracks around here, before I start using the 125 shot after the 8th mark.

I have full bolt-ons w/o EWP. Stock suspension though.

Depending on the air, if you can get ur 60ft down I dont see why you couldnt. Im gonna be spraying 150 from 2nd gear on...

Congrats bud! I'm looking at your sig and I can see why. Your suspension is set up to get every ounce of power to the ground. You also shifted well to get there. It's good to see people representing the LT1's.

I only managed to crack a best of 13.0@ 110 with the mods in my sig, lol, pathetic.
