Default bolt on c5 in the 12s

I was disapointed with this time, but it was a big improvement over stock.

2002 C5 Auto
Mods:
- Donaldson Blackwing CAI
- 1-7/8 ARH LTs
- X-pipe w/ hi-flow cats
- Borla Stingers
- 3.42 gears
- Yank 3800
- Superchips plug in tuner
- M/T ETs

My car was slammed at the time. As low as it would go on stock bolts, so traction was an issue at the time since my suspension had no give. I spun pretty bad off the line. I'm hoping to raise it back up and get into the low low 12s. Maybe 11s with a real tune.

Not bad times at all, I wouldn't be too disappointed. Questions for you though, what were you running when you were stock? And did you have the 2.73's or 3.15's?

I'm thinking it's the stall?

To be honest from what I've seen in your videos in the SRK section, I thought your car would have ran a lot faster! Seemed at least low 12's?

Good run though, 12.5 is nice. Would be a good run for my car. Try to get the traction issues sorted out though. I'm thinking you should be able to 60 in the 1.6-1.7 range.

Congrats on the 12 sec pass!

Stall is causing lower trap speed...
