    Almost in the 12s....

    13.066 @ 106.76 with a 60' of 1.974 corrected to 12.905 @ 108.2

    It was my last run and it seemed the warmer the car and tires got the better it ran. The jack and spare was out for that time but a few times before that I ran a 13.098 @ 106.78 with a 60' of 2.010so not much different. Car had over 1/2 a tank of gas and the tires had 31 psi and 32 psi. Didnt hook well at all. Couldnt launch over about 1100 rpms and had to slowly press the pedel and when it hit 2nd it would spin and screetch like mad and pajeff02 said it was wallowling pretty good from the stock junker suspension.....lol

    It was fun. If I would have ran a few more times I think it would have hit in the 12s, this fall with better track prep, better air, and less tire pressure 12s wont be an issue what so ever.

    2002 Z28 A4 NBM
    Sadly now demodded :(

    High stall TC (3400 or so). I couldn't get the 02 to go faster than 13.09 no matter how hard I tried.

    I already had a lid, exhaust and suspension along with sticky tires.

    Installed a 3400 stall (with attendant tranny mods) and instant 1/2 second drop in ET. It worked so well that the Nitto 555R's I had were useless. That lead to the Mickey Thompson's...
    67 Camaro: K-K + 797-z (look it up), 454/Th400/4.10 12-bolt = 6mpg, PS/PDB/PW tilt, tach, gauges...

    2005 Corvette LS2/M6 Magnetic Red Metallic (What else would it be?) w/ Cashmere interior

    2002 Z28: NBM/Tan, MTI smooth lid, smooth bellows, !AIR, !cats, 1-3/4" QTP SS LT's, 2-1/2" TD's with X-pipe, MagnaFlows dumped at axle, custom welded SFC's, MidWest Chassis body mount adjustable T/A, 3400 stall, 3.23 gears (was 2.73). Tuned: 343rwhp/357rwt (before TD's). Best: 12.559 @ 108+, 1.73 60' @ 3500' DA w/MT ET Street DR's.

    Carbon footprint? CLOWN SHOE!

    Thanks man! The car is quite strong. I am not thinking those shorty headers and cats with the small diameter pipe and the crappy flow master is really adding much hp..lol Just a little less weight and an "ok" sound.

    I would go the stall route but the rear tires wont hook and if I want to hook I will need drag radials and THEN I WILL NEED A NEW REAR END. lol

    I have zero suspension work so I am sure I am losing a little bit right there.

    Again, thanks. Hoping to hit 12s and pretty sure I will. If I keep it though I will probably do the stall and tires and if I blow out the rear I will just have to replace it. lol

    Needing a job pretty bad right now.

    Forgot, Jeff mentioned that there was a pretty decent head wind as well. I wish it would all just come together next time.

    I know how you feel. I've been trying to hit 12's in my car for 2 years now. My best time is 13.109 @ 108MPH. I'm an M6 though, so I know I'm losing some on my shifts.

    I spin pretty bad out of the hole also. I've only managed a 1.906 60' time with my Nitto 555r DR's.

    Hopefully I won't have a problem hitting 12's in a month though

    You wont have any issue with 12s from what I have seen of your upcoming mod list.

    The track was really bad, never have I had to feather a car quite so bad. My GTO M6 with 555s I was able to cut a 1.905 and if I could get that out of this Z28 12s is no issue. Hell, hitting 2nd gear is causing me to lose some time the way it spins around. lol

    Do you have the stock shifter?

    I have an aftermarket Hurst Billet shifter in it.
