OK guys,

The numbers are not that great, as I said I was spinning to beat the band.
My 60' sucked and I was sleeping at the light all night.

Need to run a practice tree.

Ok so best time was a 13.77 with me asleep at the tree and sideways in the 60'.

How much do you think I can gain with just new tires?

Remember I am wanting hi 11's low 12's.

Congrats on getting out there and having some fun. If you were able to drive it on the trailer and bring it home in one piece it is a successful night.

The indicator of what it could possibly run would be your MPH at the finish line. It would probably need to be faster than 100mph to run in the 12's and faster than 110mph to run in the high 11's.

Carl you need to get you some M/T street drag radials or ET drags or a type of tire like whose and you would be able to hook it up and maybe get the number you are looking for. I am glad that it ran good for you and you had some fun. I would not worry about the tree until I got it to hook up. Than you can work on the tree. Well glad it turned out and all went well for you.

a 1ST TIME OUT is never the best for anyone...you have so much going on.
#1- new car, just getting used it .
#2- ther normal bugs, such as brakes ,timing,etc.....etc......
#3- then of course the seat time..after along lay off it going to take you a few trips to get the hand of it.

Please post your MPH and i think we can ball park you where you will end up....also what was the 60 ft....

i am glad your back in the saddle...

Very respectable ET for a daily driver, with all of your Drag Racing knowldge I'm sure your aware that the tree doesnt start until the car leaves the beams. I once had a 9 sec. reaction time on a 6.70's 1/8 pass.

What was the MPH that will give a true indication on ET it is capable of.

Good Luck with it !

best 60' was a 2.19

best mph was 104.23


I know I can pick up alot in the 60' and it had a 6000 chip in the ignition box so I hit the limiter a couple of times.

it was 461 hp @ 6 or 6100rpm.

Yeah, I thought it had the 7000 in it because my mind was shifting @ 6000-6100.
