    First Time to the track!

    I'm new to F body world, I was always a B body guy but always loved the trans am but they were always so expensive so I found a A4 98 TA sold my B body's and never looked back. So as soon as I bought the car I took it to Atco my best time of the night was a 13.31 60' 2.0 the car is bone stock no free mods nothing and I think the rear is gone because the car is only pulling one leg. I found a rear out of a WS6 and i'm planning on changing it but I still have love for them B body's.

    Not even slicks? You'd have to be really good to get a time like that. If that's the case, kudos.

    these were all my times
    R/T.114 60' 2.133 1/4 13.60
    R/T-.026 60' 2.278 1/4 13.86
    R/T.037 60' 2.153 1/4 13.48
    R/T.246 60' 1.980 1/4 13.32
    R/T.112 60' 2.031 1/4 13.31
    All of these were with only a one wheel pull on GDY T/A street tires if I had the right rear and a set of Nitto DR's my times probably would've been alot better.

    Get yourself a intake and full exhaust(headers and exhaust), torque converter, and some DR's and you will be well into your 12's.


    Also looks like ever pass at the track you got more of an idea. Good times for a stock Fbody.

    You must be mistaken about you posi'. I've been racing off and on for 15 years, and I don't think I've ever seen a single track on street tires pull that kind of 60'...

    interesting results, most people tend to score lower after the first 1-2 runs,
    because the engine heats up.. unless you cooled off the engine big time in between? great response time anyways. . what u do? have a foot on the break pedal and the other one rev up.. and shoot off at the 3rd yellow?
