Nice. MPH seems a little low for that et. Probably some good air will put you into the 11s.

The mph does seem very low for your mods. The 60' had to be pretty good then

Sorry the et was supposed to be 12.608.
temp was 61 degrees
barometer was 30.12

I have to tune the trans because at about the 1000 ft it shifted to 4th.

60 ft was 1.762. The best my car has ever 60ft is 1.73

most of the 11 & 12 sec stalled auto cars you see on here are on the stock 10 bolt , he is on a 9" here so it weighs more and more parasitic loss - its great that you have a rear in place to take big power but it will take more mods to get the results of a 7.5" 10 bolt car. Wheels are heavier than stock as well same deal lets say you also have a sub and amp , again more weight it all adds up.

I haven't done any engine mods yet. I am doing all supporting mods for the new engine and trans combo. I do have 2 subs and amp in the rear. the car weights 3775 with driver right now. I am going to try and lighten it up over the winter and do front control arms and coil overs front and rear. I will also have a drag wheel set up. The wheels and tires on it now is the street set up. and I left at 1100rpm. Going to work on that next year. I only got it to the track 2 times this year.

Damn nice looking car !

What rpm are you shifting at?
With 4.11's and taking into account about 7% converter slip you may be running out of gear

The MPH does seem a bit low despite all else. I assume the car is tuned? A friend of mine has a Sunset Orange WS6 like yours with the same mods, but with the stock 10 bolt and 3.23 gear. With big 315/33/17 wheels and MR dr's he ran 12.3 at 111. His raceweight is very similar to yours

If he did not make that last shift I think he would of trapped 2-3 mph faster.

What was your 1/8 mile trap?

Here is an update. The only changes to my car over the winter are putting front weld racing rts 71 17X4.5 with 26x6x17 Mickey Thompson radials, Chrs1313 ac intake set up and retuned the car on the dyno. I made 12 passes last year in the car. I have 6 passes this year so far. Friday on my second pass made the fastest pass so far 12.2961 @ 110.43mph. I have in the picture the time slip and the weather.
