    My best pass was my last run last year 13.1 at 108 I have only made five passes with the car. All I have is an SLP lid, larger y pipe, and sfc, Borla cat back, ws6 short stick, drag bags in the rear springs, nitto drag radials, and firehawk lca's and pan hard bar.

    So your on the right track just more practice and you will get faster.

    Our opening day is this Saturday, I'm going to see what I can get out of mine. I'm going on street tires but taking my nitto's of my 99 Z28 with me I want 12's on street tires only mods are a volant cai and slp cat back so it may be hard. I went 13.0 out of my z when it was showroom stock so surely with nittos I can get at least that.

    12's on stock rubber is doable. I went 12.76 with mine on the stock BFG all seasons without any suspension tricks at all. Then took my wifes car down and went 12.90 on the stock BFG all seasons later that year. No suspension tricks on that car either.

    If the track prep is decent, and the air is good, it'll happen.

    I went 12.65 on nitto's with the same mods in 01 with my Z28 so if I have to use my nitto's to hit 12s I will my ws6 is a little heavier than my z was it 3740 with me in it.

    My car that went 12.76 is 3,820 with me in it, and empty,,,but this day I had + an extra ~100 lbs. of weight I was carrying in the trunk

    My wifes car that went 12.90 weighed 3760 with me in it. Neither of them are feather weights by any means.
