Last week I went and first time I ever raced an M6. 13.41 @ 109.
Last night a buddy called me up and said he was taking his Mustang and wanted me to go so I said alright.
1/8: 8.72 @ 86
1/4: 13.26 @ 109.6
I need to learn how to get this thing off the line better and bang the gears. Practice I guess. :drive:
Run was on 275/40/17 F1's.
Id say more than anything, i had FUN instead of chasing after 8000 things like my OTHER car. LOL
You should be able to get 2.0 60 ft with a little more practice and hit 12.9's-13.0's pretty easily. I'm not hard on my clutch so when I launch on radials I leave barely above idle 1,000-1,200 rpm.

Yep, stock tires and gears will make you learn to be a damn good launcher. Takes a big of finesse and a good balance of clutch/throttle. Its SO much easier to drag race with real tires.
Not bad times for a stock car Curt, I'll bet you jump into the addiction once again with this car ;)

Its not stock. That just goes to show how poor of a driver I am.
It has a 216/220 114lsa comp cams grind in it, and SLP longtubes. And 3.73 gears. LMAO
In contrast, the other LS1 cars there last night that were STOCK were trapping 101-103 so I was up on that.
See, I just suck at driving a stick car right now at the strip. *shrug*

Practice makes perfect, I ran a 13.1 w/my cam and 6-speed car, that was on stock SZ50's 2.4 60' w/4.10 gears.... :bang:
That thing was impossible to get off the line...

Yeah Im getting better at getting off the line. Just takes practice.
DA was ~2000
