it all started with my buddy in his 04 mach 1 he begged me to run at the track with him,i really did not want to run my car,well you know how we get when we arrive at the track :eyes: i am on my new c6s with factory F1s 19s out back,i really though i would get some traction but noooooooo i spun harder than ever through 1st and recouped a little in 2nd ran it out and man it ran the worst time EVER
60' 3.064(never in my worst day,with a go-cart)
needless to say i was embarrassed to the max,searching for a bottle with no luck!so a guy with a new GT stang decided he was gonna pick on me lined up with me for the next run,he then tells me his mods(a few)and TIRE im thinkin grrreat!i end up out running him baaaad with my email@example.com 2.312 60'to his firstname.lastname@example.org the funny part is he thought i sprayed until i told him i normally run 13.90 on stocks w/o N2o,the reason for my post is cause i never see a post where our cars just run like sh8t.......

I feel your pain...
ever make a bottle pass....
without the bottle open :)
That was the most embarrassing 14 second pass I have ever made!

LOL, 15.32 was the time I got as well on my first time out, but that was more than 22 years ago in an old Camaro with a lopey cam and headers. I had a really tall gear (3.08) and no posi, so I spun BAD on the start. That car probably would have run high 13's had I had a stall converter, posi, and 3.73, and sticky tires. Lots have changed since then..

I got a 15.3 in my 85 Camaro Z28 once. It had a 305 TPI.. :devil:

thats ok i have my regular tires DRs and i just got a set of longtubes gonna get the pcm tuned this week i should run 13.5 @104 up here :lock:

How well do the LT1s respond to LTs compared to LS1s? I'm curious as I'm seeing alot of people using them lately.
04-10-2007, 01:31 AM
well the only comparison i have was my buddies 94 m6,3.73s it ran 14.2 consistantly,did hooker long tubes,3" y pipe,cut out and a tune from mad z and 13.3s @109 on motor and 11.40 on a 150 shot(no button in 1st gear)
so i would say the car picked up 3/10 from the tune and the remainder was the hedders and exhaust so 5/10

as long as you beat the gt thats all that matters..........

I went to the track last sat, and almost the same thing happened to me. I ran a few times and put down twice an 8.36, then i let my car cool off for about an hour and started back when more people got there. I went up against a bolt on SRT-4, and when we took off i had never spun so bad on street tires, I probably had a 3.0 60ft. as well and just took it easy till the end of the track, so needless to say, it looked like i got raped. Well, when i came back around the guy looked at me like he was the shis or something, so, i pulled back in line, and he pulled right up beside me again, and when we ran, I hooked pretty good, 1.9 60ft. and ran a 8.40; he ran a 9.1 with all she had. SO, he deserved it..... :devil:

I ran a 14.8 sec. 1/4 mile once. I'm happy I ran it though, as I almost hit the wall twice. Speedway's track prep was pathetic that day, and i'm sure that I wasn't the only one having problems.
That's why I always run dr's when I go there now. It's much safer that way.

Ive ran a 14 before but just cause i screwed up my 60' times.
