    Like I said, my Z will handle your 03.

    That said, your modded 03 runs quick. (as it should) But my modded LS1 runs quicker. And mine is paid for, and yours isn't.

    Now I just got to figure out what to do with that extra 15K I will have laying around after I put your 03 in the rear view.

    dude I am not hater. i have never said anything bad to you or your car or any other f-bodies who is running good times.

    there are certain things. I ran one of the most respectable time out of a "PULLIED ONLY" cobra. people with the same set ups still running 12s and some in high 11s and i ran low 11s. thats the point. I guess you didn't relaize that part.

    I could careless if your LS1 traps or runs faster than me. I only spent 1k in the mods and guess what, i dont have to touch my motor and run 9s.

    please don't bring LS1 vs. cobras. totally different 2 animals if you ask me! both have its own goods and bads!

    you need to learn to respec. I don't own a rice, I own a cobra.

    before this gets outta hand. let's not turn this thread into something else...
    so race what u brought and I hope you brought enough... who cares who's dropped more money into their car. I can make a tin box do 9s with $2000 bucks (just a silly example) but... both platforms LSx and SVT are great.

    97mph is very high, that time should be more like 7.0, even high 6s

    Not so concerned about the ET as the trap speed.

    400RWHP isn't enough to get going 97MPH in the 1/8. Of course...spinning gives you more time to get going faster.
    I make roughly 430-440RWHP at altitude and trap 91MPH in the 1/8 mile.

    Not that I even care but Im pretty sure youre just throwing numbers around. You are trying to say you ran 97.4 mph with a 2.0+ 60' (no traction) ?? Is that what youre saying? With only 404rwhp? I had 420-430rwhp never dynoed after the last cam TSP 239/600 and I had a 1.77 60' and still only ran 93 mph at the 1/8 and went 11.40 @121. That was a strong run for a DD with only 420rwhp on DR's.

    You ran faster than that with LESS POWER and LESS TRACTION......??

    Id have to see a slip to believe Roastem. Power and times dont add up with no traction "until 3rd".

    My SS had good traction after 2nd all the time with 275 Falken streets.


    On a side note, good run man.
