Drag Racing Tech - finally 12's in my little v6///

You've got the red Z right? I watched you several times. What gear are you running? Sounded like you need a little more grunt out of the hole, but a 12.9 in a V6 is damn good. <img border="0" alt="[cheers]" title="" src="graemlins/gr_cheers.gif" />
Congrats, that's impressive. <img border="0" alt="[burn out]" title="" src="graemlins/gr_burnout.gif" />

Very impressive! Cool to see a sixer Fbody that can put a whoopin on some V8s.

YES. i have the red v6 1997 camaro.. it's not a Z. it's an RS <img border="0" title="" alt="[Wink]" src="gr_images/icons/wink.gif" />
i'm currently running 3.42's and i was spinning to a 1.70 60ft.. i was running my BGF's drag radial, i'm going to et streets really soon. i had a great time and my car is really doing good.. traction is a big issue now.. i felt soo good when i overheard 2 ls1 owners taking about a 12 second v6 and how impressed they where.. one guy asked me to pop the hood just to make sure there wasn't an lt1 under there... i ran against a white transam and blew his doors off and man i felt good.. no offense. <img border="0" title="" alt="[Cool]" src="gr_images/icons/cool.gif" />
thanks for all the great feedback

I've got the video of you wasting that white T/A. Congrats again. I meant to type RS, but Z came out instead <img border="0" alt="[angel]" title="" src="graemlins/gr_angel.gif" />

well after 2 yrs of hard work on the camaro and massive military deployments overseas, i finally hit my goal of 12's.. i went the GAFBA shootout at silverdollar raceway and ran 2 13.0xxx passes@104 mph..
so i decided to spray out of the hole and i hit a 12.923@103mph..
i'm soo happpy, with better traction i feel a 12.5 is there, i'm also getting severe KR around 6100 rpm.. this was done on nx 100 shot..
the v8 guys there were really impressed and all my money spent over there yrs paided off with a purpose.. now on my quest to 11's...

You might want to contact 12SECV6, he's on here and the "other" LS1 board. He's getting close to the 11's in his V6 Firebird. He also had High Performance Pontiac magazine do an article on him in Jan.
James is a good guy and might be able to help you achive your goals.
PS: As I say to James, 12 seconds and pays V6 insurance rates!!! Outstanding!

We talk back and forth.
I'll be back spraying on April 19th!!!
Come on name change!!!!
