General LSX Automobile Discussion - Is my goal realistic?
02-24-2012, 08:57 PM
Goal = mid 11 quarter full weight with DD characteristic and improved handling.
Mods in Sig and i plan on installing- Strano 35/22, umi full length TA with bracket, TSP ORY, and random cheaper mods (pp tb, can, 2step) and looking to upgrade tires from the kuhmo's (still undicided on brand/size)
will my setup get me there?
what else would i need to upgrade?
any thoughts or recommendations welcome.

i like your chances better behind an auto.

I can understand that but an auto is not as fun to drive. This is by no means a track car, It will see more weekend drives with the wife than anything. I just want to get it were it will rival most things you see on the street on a day to day basis and still be fun and comfortable to carve the backroads on a Sunday drive.

I would say unless you can drive flawlessly that its going to be tough to hit mid 11's, and I definitely don't see it happening on street tires. One advantage you have is the rear end so you can launch harder. I would expect mid to low 12's but its really hard to say because of all the variables that need to be taken into consideration (weather, track prep, driving ability, etc). I see a lot of guys with 224 cams with bolt on's and some suspension and there in the mid to low 12's

I could run mid 11s in my 224/224 and stg 1 ls6 heads, with full bolt ons and 4.10s and I dailyed it.

You ought to at least dip into the elevens with your parts list if not achieve your goal.

the car will gradually shift over to being more of a toy and end up getting stripped of bells and whistles but for now i need to keep the wife happy. The mid 11 goal came from not wanting to get booted for no 6pt. Anything im missing that will help et's besides the obvious heads, bigger cam. I'm really just trying to get it to run for all its worth till i get the budget together for a build.

2 step? why?
Yeah you need TIRES if you want a mid 11 pass.

you definately need tires. what i plan on doing since i daily my car is just keep my nice set of street tires and wheels on the car and get a set of dedicated drag wheels and tires for the back when i want to run it.
